That guy what said the Earth revolved around the Sun and not ta other way got his threats too.   God made de Earth and everything revolves around it.  And it's flat.  This is what I believe.*

If they had one iota of self-awareness, these gibbering idiots would realize that the very act of picking up a phone and making these death threats offer textbook examples of how Critical Race Theory is very very real.
 
2021-12-03 8:33:48 AM  
I think it's time we rethink the whole "doxxing is bad thing".
Post each and every threat online with the phone number or email it came from.
Take away the anonymity they hide behind.
Its time these threats are dealt with properly.

Yes how dare he make white people think about and talk about race. Obama got elected so everything is all good now.

A few months ago my unvaccinated sister called me and was going off about CRT and how she would pull the kids from school if they taught it cause it teaches white people to hate themselves and she went on about other crap about it too. I rolled my eyes so hard they almost went through the phone. Really sucks that the last 18 months my sister turned full blown Karen.

I'm shocked that a something based in marxist ideas that seeks to divide people by race isn't popular with a lot of people.  Threats against people because of their ideas is wrong though.

The pandemic also played a role, Delgado said, since parents were forced to talk to their children and found out during the Black Lives Matter protests their children held more progressive views on race.

"Parent lost it. They blamed the teachers for indoctrinating their kids, even though the kids are growing up in a more diverse world."

It seems like death threats have a low turnover rate. Or maybe nobody reports on the attempts?

If only there were some historical viewpoint that could explain American history with regards to why people who say "racism is bad" receive death threats from white people.

Good: Teaching the history of racism and the worst examples of racist institutions. We need to learn from the past.

Bad.  Completely poo-pooing the fact that we have made a hell of a lot of progress, though more needs to be done.

Bad: Excusing bad behavior by minority groups/anti-racists because, you know, racism and poverty.

Bad: Dismissing good behavior and achievement as whitey traits.

Bad: Everything is racist, so we need to get rid of it all and implement Marxist principles based on race and anti-racism.

Bad: Hey, you can't criticize CRT because you are racist if you do.

Bad: Hey, you're white so shut up because you're an oppressor and your opinion doesn't count.

Bad: America is a terrible place.

Now all of them will now make fun of me for not knowing what CRT is, or that stuff is not in CRT.  I only know that CRT and adjacent principles/anti-racism lessons being taught in the current manner that the progressives want to teach it ultimately leads to people that seem to espouse these opinions.  There are a lot of people that don't like this.

We can teach history and improve things, but please don't do it by making people hate America, its foundations, morals, and its founding principles, as yet unrealized as many of them are.
 
2021-12-03 9:07:50 AM  
I don't understand the knee jerk violent reaction to the theory.  Just farking admit you don't want to lose the advantages of being the dominant race.  At least white supremacists are honest about their motivations.

Or is this the whole "I'm a good person and you're teaching children that I'm not really" knee jerk?

You'll show me where teaching about the racist history of a nation founded by slave owners and who discriminated against black people in law up until the 1970s (and by practice for a long time after that) is teaching people to hate America.

It does not if taught in the right way.  The way that it's taught right now is making people tear down statues of Thomas Jefferson and Theodore Roosevelt.  It's leading to people abandoning Thanksgiving.  It's leading to people feeling like flying the American flag is a sign of being a racist/Trumpist.

CRT is literally just history. History has never affected my self esteem. It just helps me not to repeat mistakes others already made, and helps me see a clearer reflection of reality.

These babies are just mad that it doesn't reinforce their primitive patriotism- I mean tribalism.

I think that instead of looking at the founding principles as a lie, we should look at it as an optimistic goal, made at a time when things were shiatty and racist, and therefore filled with compromises.  As time goes on, we strive to whittle those compromises away.  We've done a lot, but we're only halfway there.

The point is not CRT.  That's just a catch-all term that's been popularized at the moment and is used for everything.   The point is that the way that anti-racism is taught at the moment leaves a lot to be desired and is leading to hatred of the entire country.

You are using that way of teaching and framing it in a way that makes you want to vote for certain policies.  It's not Marxism, but unless you vote or are for this policy that divides based on race/policy and is vaguely marxist or communist, you're a racist.
