What is Critical Race Theory?
Critical race theory (CRT) is a rebranding of Marxism. It is un-American, and its teachings are inherently racist. CRT insists that, based on the color of our skin, certain individuals are the “oppressors,” while others are the “oppressed.” If we reject the concept of CRT, we are targeted as racist. The goal of proponents of CRT is to rebrand America as systemically racist.
What is AMAC's Stance on Critical Race Theory
The Association of Mature American Citizens strongly opposes the Marxist-Lenin based and un-American Critical Race Theory (CRT) intended to spawn resentment, blame, guilt, fear, silence, and ultimately division among Americans. It falsely redefines America’s history as a struggle between ‘oppressors’ (white people) and the ‘oppressed’ (everybody else). It wrongly labels institutions that emerged in majority-white societies as ‘systemically’ or ‘structurally’ racist. It seeks to displace and replace the American Constitution and laws commitment to “individual equal opportunity” with “racial group equity” – a philosophy that only serves to displace those not in that racial grouping.
The CRT is not intended to sensitize and unify Americans, irrespective of ethnic origins or color of skin; it does the opposite. It is being insidiously used by the Left to divide the American people -- and to indoctrinate our children in their schools – and thereby create disfunction, hate, and strife of “black Americans” against “white Americans.” CRT is the antithesis of the teachings of Dr. Martin Luther King when, in his “I Have a Dream” address he said “…I look to a day when people will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.” CRT is simply a Leftist “divide and conquer” strategy.
Americans and their states must collectively stand and reject CRT -- and not rest until it is stopped.
