Would the divisive CRT, Critical Race Theory controversy fade away in the near future if these culprit reasons would be identified and rectified?
After reading another Chicago Tribune article about a writer’s opinions of CRT, Critical Race Theory, I decided to read up to try to discern the pros and cons of this current divisive issue in the news.
The Purpose of This Post
Is to relate and ancient wisdom proverb, a quote, the pros and cons, and the truth of what has changed to drive the USA racial problems affecting citizens in a Nation founded on the premise that all men are created equal.
If you see the poor oppressed in a district, and justice and rights denied, do not be surprised at such things; for one official is eyed by a higher one, and over them both are others higher still. (Ecclesiastes 5:8)
Quote – No Snowflake in an avalanche feels responsible
Meaning – Each and every little snowflake is irrefutably connected to the downslide. And, metaphorically speaking, we are all snowflakes.
What’s My Point?
The word critical implies a critic’s opinion is involved assigning responsibility to an issue.
After reading numerous articles about both CRT, critical race theory, and explanation and comments about what is critical thinking. Add a theory that Thomas Jefferson, a founder of the USA Constitution never intended his phrase “all men are created equal.” to not include slaves as being equal.
My point is even if the Jefferson theory was true, what occurred in the past has been rectified over time with equal Rights Amendments.
However, passing Amendments does not guarantee past racial hatred or bias ingrained into minds from past beliefs will miraculously occur.
What I discern is a large part of the reason why racism continues is a later Voting Rights Law and Supreme Court Ruling to be a driving force, which may have had altruistic reasons, has instead become responsible to result in the current avalanche of objections to CRT theories. A theory which supposedly will serve to end racism in the USA by assigning schools teachings to indoctrinate young minds with guilt of being born by parents with various skin colors and cultures to be the culprits of past follies in history instead of the who and what is the driving force perpetuating racism in the USA.
In My Opinion
In a previous post titled: What is the Reason Chicago and Our Nation is Segregated Conundrum, I stated the following
“The original reason for Constitutional redistricting is “one person, one vote. The VRA. Voting Acts Amendment and Supreme Court added qualifications for race or ethnicity.”
In other words, the founders of the Constitution premise for redistricting of “one man one vote” was later changed by Congress for a supposedly progressive amendment to allow politicians to bicker over legislative districting by race or cultures.
What has occurred though is this Supreme Court ruling allows politicians to obtain votes based on skin color, cultural name recognition, instead of one man one vote.
Frankly, in my opinion, there will always be racial hatred in the USA because government and politicians continue to play race cards to obtain power.
Same as a parent may express his or her hatred of people with differ colors of skin or cultures in the presence of his children,
What change needed now is wisdom to end all government questionaries that ask for race or skin color which serves to divide our nation rather than uniting the believe that all men are created equal.
Teaching CRT is just one more way in my opinion and the following article statement:
“These changes led to a backlash from other groups of parents and alumni, who often expressed their opposition through anonymous letters directed to school leaders. They criticized classroom exercises and lessons that segregated students on the basis of race, seemed overly reliant on racial identity or promoted conceptions of white privilege. They argued these exercises reveal a kind of essentialism that reduces everything to one’s racial background. Some who oppose these measures believe they are the result of critical race theory, which focuses on the structural aspects of racism. Critics charge that this theory finds racism omnipresent and creates a binary zero-sum game of winners (the “oppressors”) and losers (the “victims”). In Catholic school communities, they warn that critical race theory is Marxist and therefore anti-Catholic. Many who are opposed to proactive D.E.I. initiatives offer an alternative approach that teaches that race is a social construct. They want schools to either downplay, ignore altogether or transcend race in order to recover and emphasize the common humanity that unites us. “
In other words, the truth is we are all snowflakes who are responsible for the avalanche of racism, bigotry, hatred, divisiveness among ourselves if we do not change the driving force of government laws and legislators to continue to redistrict by race and cultures instead of one man one vote.
Was King Solomon wise to believe all human choices are either simply Wise of Foolish rather than the thousands of theories that have evolved over the last 3000 years? Many theories which have proved over time to be foolish instead of wise.
Should the USA voters simply change present government racial background or cultures redistricting back to one man one vote instead of requiring millions of non- ages- appropriate innocent children to be indoctrinated with guilt complexes propaganda to blame being born with a skin color instead oi what is driving racism in the USA,
That being, are legislators redistricting voter districts to maintain power and reelection based on race or culture instead of saving all interests of “one man one vote” in their districts to represent our Nation interests and unity instead of serving to divide our Nation by race, culture or political party affiliation.
If you see the poor oppressed in a district, and justice and rights denied, do not be surprised at such things; for one official is eyed by a higher one, and over them both are others higher still.
Will CRT be another simple solution to end the driving force to return power to parents instead of Government (higher ups) Mayors, legislators and 40 percent of public-school teachers choose what values should be taught to their children by voters choosing legislators who support school choir or vouchers?
