Parents dispute media narrative that critical race theory is not in schools: 'Ridiculous,' 'a joke'

Left-leaning outlets like CNN and MSNBC have argued that CRT, based on the notion U.S. institutions are inherently racist, is only saved for college level courses. CNN reporter Eva McKend repeated the claim while reporting on the 维吉尼亚州 gubernatorial race in November and the factor it played in Republican Glenn Youngkin’s win.

I do think that it’s worth noting, 虽然, that in the last several weeks, this issue of critical race theory, even though it is not being taught in Virginia public schools, it became so core in this race,” McKend said.

The hosts of MSNBC’sInto Americapodcast claimed in July thatalmost everything these people are saying about critical race theory is wrong. It’s not taught in K through 12 学校, it doesn’t say that people are inherently racist due to their genetics, and it’s not a ‘Marxist doctrine.’
