The recent election brought some new faces to our school boards, but their members are still having to confront the preposterous claim that Critical Race Theory is or will be taught in our schools.
Few if any critics of CRT can give a cogent definition of it. Rather, in the act of condemning something that is yet to even exist in Snohomish County schools, they are tipping their hand as to their true feelings.
Railing against CRT — even though it is not a reality — suggests a subtle assertion of white supremacy. Or at best blatant racism.
Incidents such as the recent racial harassment at Snohomish High, or last year’s drunken thugs’ occupation of downtown Snohomish, confirm a nasty undercurrent of racism.
I pity our besieged school boards, now that conservatives have settled on decrying Critical Race Theory as a subtle substitute for openly crying white supremacy.
