“I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.” – Martin Luther King.
Ryan Forman [February 2022] has glorified the new racism, “Critical Race Theory.” This is a Marxist theory that attempts to blame disparities on “whiteness” and “white supremacy.” There are racists among all ethnic groups. “Social Justice” stokes grudges by blaming disparities on the successful. How is blaming “whiteness” any different than blaming “blackness” or any ethnicity not a new form of racism? If society wishes to improve the lot of the poor, it would make sense to eliminate ideologies and welfare policies that promote lack of commitment of fathers, to allow parents who wish their children to escape the union/government plantation schools to choose where their children are educated, and to provide better law enforcement so the overwhelmingly poor victims of crime feel safe in their neighborhoods. Schools should teach history, including slavery in the US and all over the world. Schools should not be teaching that the color of skin determines achievement in the current United States. Identity politics is fracturing the country.
