As paternalistic white liberals arrogantly suggest they are the ones who must fix America’s alleged racism problem, one conservative college student is saying no thanks.
C.J. Pearson, of the University of Alabama, recently announced he would single-handedly spearhead a nationwide effort to rid the nation’s schools of Critical Race Theory.
The kicker: Pearson is black.
Pearson, who is president of the Free Thinker Project, recently told the conservative website Campus Reform that he will be “advocating for the prohibition of critical race theory within public classrooms.”
“Critical Race Theory isn’t education,” he added, “it’s taxpayer funded indoctrination intended to cause our students to hate America.”
In a recent op-ed for YellhammerNews.com, Pearson wrote that Critical Race Theory, or CRT, “perpetuates the left-wing falsehood that America is a racist nation, poisoned and made irredeemable by a history of white supremacy, institutional racism and supposed white privilege. And it places the blame for this alleged reality squarely at the feet of white people.”
“It is taxpayer funded anti-white racism — guised under the moniker of ‘anti-racism’ — being taught to college students all throughout the country, and it’s time for it to stop,” he added.
“In college lecture halls throughout the country,” Pearson noted, “this radical left-wing propaganda is allowed to go unchecked, unchallenged and almost entirely unquestioned.”
And professors, who once stood for the right of all to believe as they wish, now openly teach students to hate their country, said Pearson.
“As a college student myself, I’m not shelling out tens of thousands of dollars for an indoctrination. I’m interested in an education. And as a black college student, I’m certainly not paying to sit in a classroom and be told that I’m a helpless victim — that regardless of how hard I try, or how hard I work, it’ll never be enough because racism will always win,” Pearson argued.
“I reject that notion. I wasn’t raised to be a victim; I was raised to be a victor. And I refuse to believe in 2021, that the very nation that elected Barack Hussein Obama president of the United States and Kamala Harris vice president of the United States is a racist nation.”
At least eight states – Florida, North Carolina, Idaho, Tennessee, Texas, Oklahoma, Arizona and Arkansas – have banned the teaching of CRT in some fashion. “It it is my belief that one ounce of prevention is worth even more than a pound of cure,” Pearson concluded. “Because let’s level with one another: while it’s college campuses today, what will stop it from being K-12 tomorrow if we don’t act now?”
