Are we teaching kids to focus on the color of their skin?

Posted By on April 20, 2021

It seems like a lot of politicians and journalists on the left feed into and retain power by stoking racial unrest? It also appears that the leaders who are fueling the fire also have a Marxist/Socialist ideology, which at its core wants to fundamentally change America. This trend towards disharmony is not unifying for our countryOnlyInAmerica_s and I’m unsure the leaders on the left, and their followers, understand just how destructive this kind of hate is to our country?

Our schools and education system has systematically brainwashed students in Critical Race Theory (CRT)which instead of judging people by their character, judges people by their skin color and ethnicity … and stresses racial justice. Are you and oppressor based on your skin color? So much for the gains during the civil rights movement

For others buying into this leftist indocrinations, they see capitalism, competitive free-markets benefitting too few and fueling inequity, although even with a large gap between thosemlk_foldedhands at the top and at the bottom of the economic scale, America still offers far more opportunity and freedom to all citizens than any other nation. Why with all the personal freedom and independence in the U.S., would anyone want to give up this precious liberty?

Perhaps I think different because I’ve lived long enough to remember the civil rights struggle during the 1960s, when America seemed to be finally be overcoming segregation. My generation was taught and learned “not to judge people by the color of skin, but by the content of their character.”


Nearly everyone I knew recognized that prejudice was prevalent in prior generations and that it was inherently wrong by any measure. The years that followed saw significant gains in access and opportunities for all  who were willing to learn and work to better themselves. It is as if we had started to heal and were making progress … although the road was bumpy. Many minorities were even given preferential treatment and special opportunities through affirmative action programs … which in my view dampened the gains due to the unfairness and reverse discrimination. It left more divisive bitterness even as minorities  made gains towards equality of opportunity.

Fast forward 40 or 50 years and we’re now facing a new kind of discrimination trigged by cancel culture and Wokeism (something even European socialist are concern about). This time around, people are judged … not by their character … but by the color of their skin. How is this even accepted? Purposely dividing people by ethnicity, race, religion, gender, social economics or any reason is destructive for a nation.
