Tennessee State House

On Wednesday, the Tennessee State House voted to ban critical race theory — the theory that teaches people that America is irredeemably rooted in racism — from public schools. 

According to City Journal’s Christopher Rufo, “The legislation, which moves to the Senate, would prohibit schools from promoting race essentialism, collective guilt, and state-sanctioned racism.” 

The bill prohibits K-12 institutions from stoking racial divides by forcing certain children to view themselves as “oppressors” while others are viewed as “oppressed” merely because of their skin color. 

Teachers can no longer tell an individual “by virtue of the individual’s race or sex” that they are “inherently privileged, racist, sexist, or oppressive.” Students can no longer be taught that “an individual’s moral character is determined by the individual’s race or sex,” or that “an individual, by virtue of the individual’s race or sex, bears responsibility for actions committed in the past by other members of the same race or sex.” From the Daily Wire.
