Grassroots Rebellion Grows with New Calls to Ban Critical Race Theory from Military, Public Schools
From The Epoch Times:
Kevin O’Leary said he was “devastated” when he learned his former football coach, David Flynn, had been fired after questioning a seventh-grade history curriculum that labeled white people and America as inherently racist.
“Everyone loves coach, he gets kids to play football,” O’Leary told a local television news reporter in January. “Coach Flynn is an awesome guy and we’re all devastated that they fired him. Coach Flynn and Dedham football, it’s like broccoli and cheese sauce, can’t have one without the other.”
A few weeks after Flynn’s termination as head football coach for Dedham High School in Massachusetts, Judicial Watch filed a lawsuit in federal court on his behalf, charging that the coach’s firing violated his First Amendment right to petition public officials and that it was in retaliation for his criticism of the curriculum.
Flynn is not the only parent going to court in opposition to a school curriculum based on the Critical Race Theory (CRT) that views all white people as racist “oppressors” and all “people of color” as the “oppressed” who are thus incapable of being racists.
Gabrielle Clark sued Nevada’s Democracy Prep charter school in federal court in December after her son, William, was forced to describe himself as a racist because of his apparent Caucasian ethnicity. In fact, his Mother is African-American and his deceased father was Caucasian.
“My son is the only white student in this class, as far as we can tell. This teacher is blatantly justifying racism against white people thereby putting my son in emotional, psychological, and physical danger. This is not ok.”
The Flynn and Clark federal lawsuits are part of a rapidly growing national movement against the inclusion of CRT-based materials in classrooms, corporate training, and the federal government.
