Dr. Ben Carson’s personal testimony as an African American man who has achieved many of the highest feats offered by the American Dream, continues to be at odds with the ideals of critical race theory.
In an opinion piece shared via Fox News, Dr. Carson gives a personal account of how CRT would have discouraged him from pursuing his dreams as a child. He also calls for Americans to remain vigilant and keep critical race theory out of elementary school curricula.
“We cannot allow CRT to rob American children of that same hope that was instilled in me,” said Dr. Carson.
The Left has managed to control the culture in recent decades because of their manipulation of language, which characterizes their opponents as racist and thus grants them no validation.
“This type of vocabulary manipulation is part of the reason this ideology has stealthily overcome our institutions. After all, who doesn’t want to be antiracist?”
Dr. Carson proposes a return to the traditional family structure as a solution that would level the playing field for disadvantaged minorities and that would rid society of bloated lessons on race and socialist paradigms.
“Research has shown that factors such as the presence of a stable two-parent family, educational choices and economic prosperity, among others, account for the large bulk of observed racial differences, rather than the boogeyman of racism. Thus, CRT and antiracism are founded on racist, conspiratorial drivel.”
While the fallacies of CRT aim to redefine the traditional American household, Dr. Carson ends on a note of optimism regarding the battle against these radical beliefs:
“But if there’s any silver lining in the Marxist’s aggressive zeal to force CRT on our communities, it’s that their efforts are waking up the nation like few issues in recent memory, mobilizing citizens around the country to engage school boards and local governments to remove racist conspiracy theories like CRT from schools, businesses and government.
“This renewed engagement could be a promising first step in eroding the decades-long dominance of Marxism in American education.”
