    Surge Summary: Critical Race Theory endorses the idea that people should be judged by the color of their skin (versus the content of their character). Those promoting this noxious attitude are attempting to make it a part of American schools, businesses and the military. Thankfully, it looks like some Americans are pushing back against it.

    Even in a deeply divided America, there some things that all decent people can agree on.  One point of agreement is that Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr., was correct when he said that we shouldn’t judge people by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.

    When King said that, he was obviously speaking on behalf of black Americans, but he was making a universal point.  He was stating the obvious: That a person’s moral core is far more important than their skin color.

    As a pastor, he knew that good people and bad people come in all colors.  But if King were alive today, he would be heartbroken over what’s happening in America now.

    Exploiting the decency of the American people, the left has devised a perverted program called critical race theory.  It’s being introduced into businesses, schools and even our military.  Its goal is to promote racism against white Americans.

    It promotes a Marxist philosophy.  The founders of the Black Lives Matters organization are self-described “trained Marxists.”  In the past, Marxism tried to stoke revolution by dividing people based on economic class. Today’s Marxists are dividing us based on race.

    They are encouraging our children to believe that whites are guilty of racism simply because of their DNA and the color of their skin.  Thankfully, it is being exposed.  Parents and teachers are pushing back at school board meetings and the ballot box.  (See below.)

    It is imperative for you as a parent, grandparent or a concerned citizen to resist this radical ideology.  By doing so you will be saving the legacy of Martin Luther King and our country.

    I have fought racism all my life.  And I am committed to fighting this Marxist left-wing racism.  I hope you will stand with me as we work for racial reconciliation, and strive to unite us around our traditional American values. …

    [C]onservative candidates overwhelmingly won two open school board races in the Dallas suburb of Southlake.  What makes their victories so important is that critical race theory was the critical issue in this campaign.  Both candidates, Cameron Bryan and Hannah Smith, have vowed to purge critical race theory from Southlake’s schools.

    I am pleased to report that Smith is a former clerk for Justices Clarence Thomas and Samuel Alito.  While her work for Justices Thomas and Alito was undoubtedly important, what she is doing now at the grass roots may well be even more important!
