Are you concerned about what your children are taught in school? Maybe they’ve been learning that America is irredeemably racist? Well, that won’t happen in Tennessee. That’s because they’ve become the latest state to ban what is known as Critical Race theory—which teaches that America is steeped in racism. Gov. Bill Lee says that students should learn “the exceptionalism of our nation,” not things that “inherently divide” people. A similar bill (BR 60) has been introduced in the Kentucky General Assembly by State Rep. Joe Fischer (R-Ft Thomas). If this bill is passed, teachers cannot teach that an individual, “by virtue of the individual’s race… is inherently privileged, racist, or oppressive.” There have been racial injustices in America’s history. But we’re a melting pot of races, and we’ve worked through racial injustice to become a more perfect union. And that’s what our kids should be learning.
