‘Telling my child they are oppressed is racist’: Black Florida mom warns school board that critical race theory entrenches racist idea that ‘whites are better than blacks’
‘That is not teaching the truth,’ said King, who has a child in the Duvall County school district, ‘unless you believe that whites are better than blacks.”
King also disputed claims that critical race theory is ‘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 its outworking today is a teaching that there’s a hierarchy in society where white male, heterosexual, able-bodied people are deemed the oppressors and anyone else outside of that status is oppressed.’
‘That’s why we see corporations like Coca-Cola asking their employees to be less white, which is ridiculous,’ King said, representing Moms for Liberty, a national group that promotes ‘parental rights at all levels of government,’ according to its website.
‘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,’ King said, ‘and saying that white people are automatically above me, my children, or any child is racist as well.
‘This is not something we can stand for in our country.’
