Mom stands against critical race theory: It’s ‘racist,’ teaches hate, and ‘will destroy America’
A Florida mother took a stand against critical race theory at her local school board meeting, warning that it is “racist” and will lead to the destruction of America if not stopped.
“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,” said Keisha King, a Duval County parent representing Moms for Liberty.
“That is not teaching the truth unless you believe that whites are better than blacks,” she added. King went on to discuss the school district’s implementation of critical race theory. “I have personally heard teachers teaching CRT and we have had an assembly shutdown because a Duval County Public School System consultant thought it would be a great idea to separate students by race. This is unacceptable.”
“CRT is not racial sensitivity, or simply teaching unfavorable American history, or teaching Jim Crow history. CRT is deeper and more dangerous than that,” King said. “CRT and it’s out working today is a teaching that there is 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 went on to say that the notion under critical race theory that blacks are a member of a “permanent oppressed” status group is an inherently racist ideology. “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 a 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, our ancestors, white, black, and others hung, bled, and died right alongside each other to push America towards that more perfect union,” King added.
“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,” King concluded.

King’s speech comes as a number of mothers have recently spoken up at school board meetings to express their disapproval of critical race theory. This week Tatiana Ibrahim, a mother from New York, stood up to her local school board demanding answers for why her children were being taught “to hate the police.”
“Stop teaching our children that if they don’t agree with the LGBT community that they’re homophobic, Ibrahim said.
“[Educators] purposefully themselves expose themselves on social media. Talking about calling for the death of a former president. Or, saying that any child that doesn’t believe in Black Lives Matter should be canceled out. Is this what my tax dollars is paying for?” She said.
Another mother from Virginia went viral for her impassioned speech comparing CRT to “Mao’s Cultural Revolution.”
“I’ve been very alarmed by what’s going on in our schools,” Xi Van Fleet told her local school board members. “You are now teaching, training our children to be social justice warriors and to loathe our country and our history.”
“This is indeed the American version of the Chinese Cultural Revolution,” she said. “The critical race theory has its roots in cultural Marxism. It should have no place in our school.”
