A black Florida mom went viral this week after she went nuclear against critical race theory with one of the most intelligent arguments many have heard.
While speaking to the Duval County Public Schools Board in Jacksonville, Keisha King said CTR “teaches hate” and is “racist.”
“My name is Keisha King, I’m a mom of two, one who is in Duval County Public Schools system, and one in private school thanks to school choice. I’m also a member of Moms for Liberty, representing thousands of parents,” King began.
“Just coming off of May 31st, marking the 100 years of the Tulsa riots, it is sad that we are even contemplating something like Critical Race Theory where children will be separated by their skin color and deemed permanently oppressors or oppressed in 2021. That is not teaching the truth, unless you believe that whites are better than blacks,” she said.
“I have personally heard teacher teaching CRT and we have had an assembly shut down because Duval County Public Schools system consultant thought it would be a great idea to separate students by race. This is unacceptable,” she added.
“CRT is not racial sensitivity or simply teaching unfavorable American history, or teaching Jim Crow history. CRT is deeper and more dangerous than that,” she added.
“CRT, in its outworking today, is teaching that there’s a hierarchy in society where white male heterosexual able-bodied people are deemed the oppressor, and anyone else outside of that status is oppressed,” she said.
King declared: “That’s why we see corporations like Coca-Cola asking their employees to be less white, which is ridiculous. I don’t know about you, but telling my child or any child that they are in permanent oppressed status in America because they are black is racist; and saying that white people are automatically above me, my children or any child is racist as well.”
“This is not something that we can stand for in our country. And don’t take it from me, look at the writers of these types of publications,” she said.
“Our ancestors, white, black and others, hung, bled and died right alongside each other to push America towards that more perfect union. If this continues, we will look back and be responsible for the dismantling of the greatest country in the world by reverting to teaching hate and that race is a determining factor on where your destiny lies. Thank you,” King concluded.
Her speech got her a standing ovation as the crowd firmly stood behind her words and what she was saying.
