One picture is worth a thousand words on Critical Race Theory

This is the fruit of the intellectual handiwork done by President Obama’s Harvard mentor, Derrick Bell:

(For a larger version)

And here’s the explanation:

The nation’s premiere voting rights museum—the National Voting Rights Museum—now sits at the foot of the bridge [in Selma, Alabama]. The museum is an inadvertent monument to the civil rights movement’s degeneration. Its outlook is neatly captured in ten words that begin its timeline display of the civil rights movement. There, we find a replica of John Trumball’s iconic depiction of the signing of the Declaration of Independence with the caption, “1776. The Declaration of Independence signed by wealthy white men.”

The original civil rights giants would never have tolerated this historically false assertion. They were patriots, driven by love for their fellow countrymen and a burning desire to make America a better place for all its citizens. They repeatedly and vehemently rejected hatred. But the nasty caption captures the bitter spirit of much of the civil rights movement today and of numerous race-based activist groups around the country.

According to Bell’s Critical Race Theory, which not only the president, but several members of his administration and the Supreme Court and the media admire, the structure and philosophy of the United States is inherently, irrevocably racist. Hence, the caption to Trumball’s famous painting.

It’s hard for me to describe how offensive I find that, let alone dead wrong.

So I’ll let you discuss it.

  2. This embracing of CRT explains a lot about this administration. Everyone that does not share your own skin color is a natural born racist…and not only that, is beyond reform and always will be.

    Our country cannot take four more years of this insanity from the most divisive leader ever.

    By the act of electing a Black President, aided in no small part by a large majority of white voters, we were supposed to have put behind us all the ugliness of the race wars this country has gone to bed with each night for so many years. Instead, we elected one of the most racist human beings in our History. The results of that act, as it plays itself out upon our Society, is devastating to our great nation. By electing this one man, we set race relations in our country back thirty years and once again put this country into a quagmire of racial wars that will take us another thirty years to climb out of. Thank you, Obama. We could have done without you. Now we have to start all over again.

    The concept of the last election was nothing more than hype. It was never intended to put race problems behind us. It was about getting even.. and we now have a DOJ which is more like the Dept. of Payback and an anti-American president. In my lifetime, I would have never guessed so many Americans and illegals coming here would hate this country so much… they wanted to destroy it. But it appears to be the case.

    What they don’t know about history speaks volumes! This is on display at a voting rights museum….curator must be heavily indoctrinated in Black Liberation Theology.

  6. Frank says:

    You must be a race-driven-hater to point out their race-driven-hate…or something…

    Ten points if you know who the first person killed in the American Revolution was along with his race!

    Crispus Attucks, an African-American killed at the Boston Massacre? Or is that too early to count as the Revolution? ;)

    Time to get rid of this posturing fool. Then, after cleaning out the White House, comes the arduous task of removing all the undereducated and underqualified people that were appointed by said fool.

  9. Carlos says:

    Let the next prez (hopefully not Duh-1 again) fire everyone who serves at his will, then make every one of them re-apply for their jobs. The ones who were serving the interests of the taxpayers should be rehired.

    Those who were serving special interests (like envirowhackos, unions or themselves) should have notes attached to their applications that they are never to be interviewed again.

    Frank, when I make comments that are controversial, I fully expect someone to call me on it. I am usually prepared to respond. You just made a comment that screamed for a response. I had never before heard the phrase, “a race-driven-hater.” Are you, like me, prepared to defend such an outrageous statement? I would hope so. Because statements like yours are what fuels the continual discontent and divide between us as a people as we try to find our future.

    Obama is the most racist individual to ever appear on the landscape of America.
    You can’t see that, you’re blind. Sorry to disappoint you. I’m not a, “race driven hater,” as you describe. I believe in Freedom and I am against anything that threatens Freedom. Obama threatens my Freedom. Therefore, I am against Obama and everything he represents. You want my argument on current events, there it is. We have a Communist for a President. Put any face you want to upon it, but there it is. That’s the reality of what we are talking about here. Anything else is just drivel.
