September 2021 Newsletter

Message from Jim Quick, President of the Cabarrus County Republican Men’s Club:

This week the North Carolina General Assembly sent Governor Cooper a bill that establishes new rules on how schools can teach about racism, amid allegations from Lt. Governor Mark Robinson and other GOP leaders that some North Carolina teachers are trying to indoctrinate students using Critical Race Theory. The “Ensuring Dignity and Nondiscrimination in Schools” Act, widely expected to be vetoed by Governor Roy Cooper, would prohibit schools from promoting that the United States was created “for the purpose of oppressing members of another race or sex.” Ask yourself, who would advance such a theory?

In 1994, Richard Delgado and Jean Stefancic, the inventors of Critical Race Theory (CRT) believed systematic racism is rooted in everyday life and in nearly every aspect of how societies function. They conjectured that a hierarchy of white-over-color exists in every aspect of our nation and it existed in the motives of America’s forefathers. While MSNBC’s Chuck Todd, insists CRT is simply a Fox News “creation to keep people watching or clicking on social media” others like the Washington Post’s Jonathan Capehart say those who criticize CRT are merely attempting to prevent “us from learning our history.”

No matter where you land on the issue it’s important to stop to understand why CRT is so dangerous. It’s a philosophy that is infecting everything from politics and education to the workplace and the military. We cannot simply write it off as foolishness.

First, there is no evidence that all of America’s key institutions are inextricably rooted in white supremacy. Yes, the Republican Party should do more to stand up against racism at every level of our society but this Marxist rhetoric riding underneath the Critical Race Theory demands the destruction of every American institution.

Second, CRT isn’t merely an analysis tool. Today, our nation’s universities are cranking out critical race theorists ... political scientists ponder voting strategies coined by critical race theorists ... and unlike some academic disciplines, critical race theory now contains an activist dimension based on the understanding that whites are unable to understand racism, and that minority carries a presumed competence to speak with authority on racism. CRT advances the notion that racism is embedded unconsciously into American life therefore it is impossible for Americans to understand their own racism or of that found in our government systems, let alone to remove it. The only solution, they assert, is to decimate the only system in the world that has provided widespread liberty and prosperity for all.

If we cannot understand these pungent topics we cannot be alerted to the erosion taking place in our classrooms and across our country. The Cabarrus Republican Party and the Men’s Club are partnering with NC Faith & Freedom Coalition and The Heritage Foundation to offer this educational evening on Critical Race Theory with some of best educational scholars in the nation. The free program will be offered in the place of our general monthly Republican meeting on Thursday, September 9th at the Venture Church in Harrisburg at 6:30pm.

We are offering the program so parents, guardians, and grandparents can be involved in the classroom by understanding more about Critical Race Theory. Learn how to debunk this radical Marxist ideology. Find out how state and county-approved curriculum might be used to advance indoctrination in across classrooms in Cabarrus County. You will learn the buzz worlds to root out CRT and know what to do if you find a problem in your child's classroom.
