Think Critical Race Theory is bad? Try Black Lives Matter-endorsed content, straight from the Marxist movement itself.
Many public schools have adopted the movement’s School Week of Action, which promotes its Marxist ideology of separating Americans into races, while instigating violence and societal upheaval.
The week of action took place from January 31-February 4, or in other words, during the first week in February. The website proclaims that it is “a national coalition organizing for racial justice in education” and to fight against anti-Critical Race Theory legislation. It says that these legislative efforts “would require teachers to lie to students about the role of racism, sexism, heterosexism, and oppression throughout U.S. history.
In other words, Black Lives Matter wants its anti-traditional family and anti-American views imposed on the American public education system and its students. We have detailed much of its ideology, such as its core principle of promoting “Queer Affirming” to dismantle traditional families, in previous articles.
This effort is sponsored by the left-wing Zinn Education Project. Zinn is the left-wing historian known for promoting the opinion that America was built on racism, among other false or misleading claims.
Its website also claims it is “A Year of Purpose” and “A Lifetime of Peace.”
Tell small business owners and civilians that Black Lives Matter stands for peace when the movement instigated riots that caused at least $600 million in damages since 2013.
As Heritage Foundation fellow Mike Gonzalez wrote, the website quotes Assata Shakur, “the communist police killer on the FBI’s Most Wanted list.” He noted the following:
“Shakur is holed up in Havana. The quote by Shakur, also known by her birth name Joanne Chesimard, ends with the line, “We have nothing to lose but our chains,” which comes straight from the Communist Manifesto written by Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels in 1848.”
Public schools should not impose dogmatic, one-sided views of American values and history on its students without parental input or permission. Black Lives Matter’s activist week is an example of the increased radicalism of education and the need for parents to restore neutrality and fairness in education.
