The assaults on Critical Race Theory continue from conservatives practicing racism along with their non-white proxies they have doing some of the dirty work. While Critical Race Theory is an advanced course offered in some colleges, conservatives have falsely made CRT about anything teaching about institutional and societal racism in U.S. history. As I've written before, the attacks are political in nature and a distraction from real issues like poverty wages, unaffordable housing, lack of access to quality healthcare, and now, lack of access to a well-rounded education on the nation's history. Tonight we will speak with Rodney Pierce, the North Carolina 2019 Social Studies Teacher of the Year about the censorship of components of U.S, History in schools. Mr. Pierce was recently featured by Mother Jones in the article "The Moral Panic Over Critical Race Theory Is Coming for a North Carolina Teacher of the Year".
