Critical Race Theory
Also being implemented in schools as Action Civics. Critical Race theory is an academic discipline, formulated in the 1990s, built on the intellectual framework of identity-based Marxism. Relegated for many years to universities and obscure academic journals, over the past decade it has increasingly become the default ideology in our public institutions. Critical Race theory is fast becoming America’s new institutional orthodoxy. Yet most Americans have never heard of it ... it is fast achieving "cultural hegemony"... The question is, is that good or bad? The connection to Marxism, and recommendations to suspend private property, seize land & wealth, redistribute same, teach children that the world is divided into 'oppressors' and 'oppressed', white people are 'oppressors' based on skin color, violent attempts to force people to agree and silence dissent, all tends to indicate this is not only bad, but destructive and disastrous.

The Five Lies of CRT

from The Gray Area:
The following is a great resource for understand the political narratives associated with Critical Race Theory in the media and political discourse. The Five Lies Of CRT review these narratives:
  1. "CRT is Not Taught in Schools"
  2. “CRT is just a way to give previously marginalized people the attention they have lacked.”
  3. "CRT is Not Marxist"
  4. “Those opposed to CRT just don’t want history taught.”
  5. “The use of CRT is a cynical ploy by Republicans.”
