North Carolina Republican Say NO to Critical Race Theory

  • The North Carolina Republican Party is united around providing students an unbiased academic environment that promotes the freedom of expression and prevents left-wing propaganda like Critical Race Theory from infiltrating the classroom. Critical Race Theory redefines America's history as a struggle between "oppressors" (white people) and the "oppressed" (everybody else.) It labels institutions that emerged in majority-white societies as "systemically" racist.
  • Yesterday, the North Carolina House of Representatives passed legislation, House Bill 324, to prohibit Critical Race Theory and other discriminatory concepts from being taught in school.
  • The bill, entitled "Ensuring Dignity & Nondiscrimination/Schools" would prevent students or teachers from being taught that one race or sex is inherently superior to another race or sex, or that of any individual, solely by virtue of his or her race or sex, should feel discomfort, guilt, anguish, or any other form of psychological distress."
  • Both Republican Lieutenant Governor Mark Robinson and Republican Superintendent of Public Instruction Catherine Truitt support the bill.
    • Lieutenant Governor Mark Robinson said, "This legislation ensures that students will be taught that we all have value, regardless of who we are-- or who our ancestors were."
    • Superintendent Catherine Truitt said, "We want to encourage students to think freely and respect differences of opinions while ensuring our classrooms are not promoting ideas contrary to the equality and rights of all."
  • Congressman Dan Bishop just introduced legislation in the United States House of Representatives to combat critical race theory called the "Stop Critical Race Theory Act."
    • Congressman Dan Bishop says, "Critical Race Theory is a divisive ideology that threatens to poison the American psyche."
