Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds signs law targeting critical race theory

Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds signed a new law that she said will target the teaching of critical race theory and other concepts in government diversity trainings and classroom curriculum. ’Critical Race Theory is about labels and stereotypes, not education,’ Reynolds said. ’I am proud to have worked with the legislature to promote learning, not discriminatory indoctrination,’ she added.

Great! Here’s why: “I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.”

There is a special place in the underworld for the people that started this critical race theory program to begin with. There is only one human race, period, exclamation point.

YESSSS!!!! As a future educator in Iowa this is a HUGE relief! I was told by some veteran teachers at my school that they'll be removing the history textbooks in my county and leaving it to teachers to come up with lessons, and they'll be calling it civil liberties class instead of history. Hopefully this new legislature will keep some of that nonsense at bay a bit longer.

That's how you prevent systemic injustice from getting a foothold, stop teaching and validating it. #CRTisRacism

don't forget "critcal theory" is a marxist tactic from the 1920's they just added race for 2020. "Critical theory is an approach to social philosophy that focuses on reflective assessment and critique of society and culture in order to reveal and challenge power structures. With origins in sociology and literary criticism, it argues that social problems are influenced and created more by societal structures and cultural assumptions than by individual and psychological factors. Maintaining that ideology is the principal obstacle to human liberation,[2] critical theory was established as a school of thought primarily by the Frankfurt School theoreticians Herbert Marcuse, Theodor Adorno, Walter Benjamin, Erich Fromm, and Max Horkheimer. Horkheimer described a theory as critical insofar as it seeks "to liberate human beings from the circumstances that enslave them."[3] In sociology and political philosophy, "Critical Theory" means the Western-Marxist philosophy of the Frankfurt School, developed in Germany in the 1930s and drawing on the ideas of Karl Marx and Sigmund Freud. Though a "critical theory" or a "critical social theory" may have similar elements of thought, capitalizing Critical Theory as if it were a proper noun stresses the intellectual lineage specific to the Frankfurt School. It's that simple don't be fooled it's about race, that's just a new twist.

Nice work. Racism and discrimination should not be encouraged.

Looking at the comments, it shows that so many people do not know what critical race theory is. Thank you all for proving that. You are really embarrassingly yourselves.

Great. Racism (which is what CRT is) shouldn't be taught in any schools that receive public funding.

I never used to have a racist bone in my body. I think I'm becoming a racist now. They tell me I am, so i might as well start acting and speaking like one. I'm just a white privileged honky racist.

I thought segregation was over. Critical race theory is just that, makes me sick. Yes American did shi**y things buts so has EVERY country! The only way to grow is to learn from something good/bad and move the heck on. Teaching child to be perceptual victims or perpetrators does nothing but make us stagnant as a society. This is a way to gain control and that is it. Teach truth not propaganda.

I don't care what you call it, but I felt very stupid when I first learned of the Tulsa Massacre last year. I'm 57.

So let me get this atraight. It's ok to hold up loser generals and a flag from the Civil War "because of history" but teaching how racist this country has been is taboo? Because so far the only people I've seen whine are white and well....

You can be against racism without believing CRT, which is nothing but a Marxist tool for destabilizing countries in preparation for authoritarian takeover. The odd thing is that most people agree that racism is bad. Race-professionals, who must keep racism relevant in order to maintain their jobs, would rather fight the windmill knights of the past, like Don Quixote, battles that have largely been won by civil rights progress, rather than identify the institutional things that need changing--except for statistical outcomes. However, statistics are easily misrepresented to serve whomever is using them. Plus, equality of outcomes can only be assured by authoritarian governmental control, which is the ultimate goal of Marxist-derived CRT. Only equality before the law can be assured in a free society. Equality of outcomes demand government control of quotas, in every aspect of life if we are to be equitable about it. Sports teams could have 13% Blacks, no more no less; tech companies could have 4% Asians, no more no less; 65% of rappers must be White ... the absurdities of equality of outcomes are endless. Better to stick with the only part of CRT that is well founded, that race is an artificial construct. They start there, but base all of their ideology on accepting that false premise. Why not reject the premise outright and work from the truth that people should be treated equally before the law as people without regard for artificial race designations.

It's not worth it anymore. Whatever benefits kids get from being together in school socializing is far outweighed by benefits of home schooling. children should have fundamental, classic edu in math, science, reading, writing, computers, art, sports, language, etc. Is that not enough? Most schools can't even achieve that. Now they want to level up educators with complex, Marxist, obtuse legalese racial theory? Can't move on to trig if you didn't pass algebra! School teachers are over burdened, underpaid, and there's no chance in hell they can achieve what CRT wants... Individualized attention for every child's needs, learning style, with special consideration for racial and social context. Are you friggin kidding me? They can't hardly achieve that in private schools. At the very least, it would require small cohorts and exponentially greater resources, facilities, staff, costs the public is certainly NOT willing to pay. Teachers don't make shit for their herculean efforts. Even if these commie theorists have everything right ideologically (which they don't), execution of their pipe dream is unworkable in current conditions. Your best bet is to home school your child in the style of Viggo Mortensen in Captain Fantastic.

GOP looks evil trying to erase history. Just stop the pretense and start book burnings.
