Yes, we cannot end racism until we acknowledge that our institutions, laws, and history are inherently racist

Critical race theory is increasing the gap between white and black people. Why express that people of color are oppressed when they aren't in actuality the aren't (or only are by a select few racist individuals). Critical race theory increases the gap as the color of your skin does not define what you can and cannot do in this country and if you believe that, you are the problem with racism.

No, kids should be racially color blind instead of being taught they are inherently racist or disadvantaged based on the color of their skin

No, while our history is tragic, as it comes to K-12 education, social theory won't help them. Understanding of what has happened on a factual basis can help individuals come to their own conclusions and offer a good discourse between different groups.

@8WFGR5H from Montana commented…1yr

I agree in principle but how do you decide what facts and more importantly from which sources you teach

@8NF2SYB from Rhode Island answered…2yrs

No, teaching a group of people they are literally, inherently evil will only serve to make them give up and just be evil instead.

@2BFTRTKfrom Texas  disagreed…2yrs

Critical Race Theory doesn't teach that any group of people is "evil". Please try to understand what terms actually mean before giving your opinion on them.

No,because Critical Race Theory is a Jewish supremacist doctrine that encourages racial hatred against people of European racial stock.

Teaching that our laws, etc. are biased as opposed to racist seems a more reasonable approach.

@937FJVT from Illinois answered…6mos

American History, with all of it's flaws should be taught in schools. CRT is a graduate level course. Re-branding our history to whitewash it is morally apprehensible.

@8ZSZ66N from California answered…8mos

No, Kids should be raised racially colorblind and should not be taught in school from a young age to hate the country they live in

If only this was what actually happens. CRT isn't even in public education it's a perspective on criminal justice, particularly the phenomenon surrounding racial crimerates despite race technically not even existing. It's a social construct we made up and redefined for several centuries. If you think we should be racially colorblind, I'm with you, but you can't pretend you're moving against that by blaming CRT.

No, conflict theory in general is heavily flawed in terms of historiography. Conflict theorists, of which Critical Race Theory is a part of, set out not to show events as they were, but to prove a point. Conflict theorists like those who wrote the 1619 Project downplay examples of unity or outright ignore them at best and create utter lies at worst. Take for example the now deleted claim from the 1619 Project that among the chief causes of the American revolution was the rising sentiment of abolition in Great Britain. This claim was found to be so fraudulent that the New York Times had to

No. Children should be taught about our institutions, laws, and history, but in a way that helps them understand why those things have been founded or written in the way that they are. History and the beliefs that were relevant at the point and time should be discussed, but the Critical Race Theory should not be taught as something that is present in every aspect of society.

@942JMM2Democrat from Indiana disagreed…4mos

Yes, we cannot end racism until we acknowledge that our institutions, laws, and history are inherently racist

Yet it is. I live in Indiana too, and I see hate toward people of color every day

@8LYKGJ3 from New Hampshire answered…2yrs

No, there is only one race. The human race. This is what should be taught. All other races do not exist.

@8P2H2PB  from Missouri commented…2yrs

The Human race is a species, like everything else it can be divided. And if taught this they could realize how incredibly one sided this world is. You sound incredibly ignorant right now. And a 9th grader just told you how society works.

Race doesn't exist period, any attempts to specifically define it or push it almost immediately fall apart. What specific race are mixed race children? If someone disagrees how can I objectively prove someone is a specific race? This problem expounds once you realize that as early as 100-150 years ago Germans weren't considered white by the English.

It’s no and people think it is being taught. We should teach real, factual history, and we should not avoid racism as a topic, or slavery, etc.

@97ZNCNZ from Louisiana answered…6hrs

No, CRT is concentrated grift for a contemporary political ideology with both no staying power and no net positive impact on society.

What is CRT?

@97ZMW85 from Texas answered…8hrs

No, Critical Race Theory should only be taught as a college course so students do not adopt identities of being victims or racists

@979LZZ6  from Kansas commented…8hrs

Yes, we cannot end racism until we acknowledge that our institutions, laws, and history are inherently racist

Why would anyone "adopt identities of being victims or racists" from CRT..?

@97ZM5ST from Illinois answered…10hrs

No, but they should be aware of differences in race,culture and ethnicity

@97ZM2YP from California answered…11hrs

Certain things are flawed with CRT, but it is important that kids learn about racism.

What are the flaws?

@97ZLBWB from Texas answered…13hrs

CRT isn’t taught in public schools. Republicans don’t know what it is when they bring it up. It’s fine a subject in college or law school.

No, the government should not be involved in education

Idc, should teach actual history of our nation instead of hiding the real truth from society. Unclassified documents need released. Our history is not all rainbows and butterflies.

@97ZJBF6 from Louisiana answered…24hrs

It should be mentioned, along with other theories. But curriculum in Social Studies should be as objective as possible and promote critical thinking.

I think that in every household there are different opinions, no i do not think racists is a good thing and I am against it in ways. But everyone has their own opinions and beliefs.

There are certain examples that can be used to describe how the law is inherently targeting people of color and they should be shown in the classroom.

CRT isn’t something that is taught at Elementary schools, it’s a legal term. However, teaching about race should be done, and explaining accurate history as well. What ppl think CRT is should be taught
