Every school child knows that America was founded with a racist original sin. Every school child should know this about America. Every American, educated or not, should know the history of slavery out of which this country emerged.
That is not in dispute. Almost all Americans agree on this point. Furthermore, almost all Americans cite race relations as being among the top 10 issues that we must resolve to have a better future in the United States.
So, why are conservatives up in arms about Critical Race Theory (CRT)?
September is fast approaching & with it Labor Day is creeping up as well. Many people tend to look forward to cookouts, barbeques, & family gatherings. COVID-19 is still very much alive so we must keep this in mind before potentially exposing ourselves & our family members to perhaps potential danger. However, given that many people still responsibly wear masks (rightfully so) & the vaccine is being distributed more and more each and every day, the prospects for a normal life may once again be seen on the horizon. Despite this we cannot let our guard down, we must continue to strive forward towards the “finish line” so that our normal Labor Day celebrations can return.
