Social media has blown up with video footage from Loudoun County, Virginia, where parents and teachers are using one-minute public speaking time to shame the school board for mandating Critical Race Theory lessons to students. The premise of CRT is that all white people are inherently and subconsciously racist, and oppress minorities because of that racism, which means white students are being taught they oppress fellow classmates who are being told by a teacher they cannot succeed in life because white classmates will hold them back.
“Students, you are on the front lines of these indoctrination camps,” Lilit Vansetsyan, a Fairfax County teacher, said during her one-minute speech. “Challenge the staff when you are presented with a ludicrous statement, and do not allow anybody to tell you that you cannot accomplish anything because of your skin color, or to hate yourself because of your skin color.”
