Like CRT, the racist right has misappropriated this term and contrived the lie that it means to be ‘anti-white’ when in fact nothing could be further from the truth.

It is not ‘anti-white’ to acknowledge the fact that racism exists and continues to disadvantage Americans of color.
You’re obviously suffering from white privilege.

What I cannot figure out is how can people think that a man made thing makes us to be rich and wealthy? God gave to Lucifer every good gift. Lucifer was right when God did not bestow money upon Lucifer? All of the gifts that we see are the gifts that were given to Lucifer. Money being used, is agreeing with Lucifer. Do you realize that?
I believe those stories are metaphors first of all so I can’t take your claims very seriously if you are being literal. As far as how man made things can make a person rich and wealthy… well that’s just according to the actual definitions of what rich and wealthy mean

Chicago, Chicago, that Toddling Town
The Continent that brought us NAZI’s and created the Holocaust has no racial bias!
The whole continent was responsible for the Nazis? I thought it was just the Germans... but never mind.


Spain murdering 12,000 because of race, just a hiccup!

Actually, that was over religion... but never mind.

I should drop you off in Bosnia.
Again, that was over religion, and you had just as much Orthodox killing Catholics as you had Christians killing Muslims.


Europeans settled America, Dufus. And Native Americans were already practicing slavery before the first European landed.

Actually, no, they really didn't. Slavery was largely absent from Europe by the 15th century, but they re-introduced it to colonize the Americans. When the Native American response to being enslaved and worked to death was dying off, some clever European said, "Hey, let's go to Africa and get some slaves from there!!!"

People have been making things using metaphors? Parables are closer to a metaphor to keep people from arguing about Spiritual truths. Matthew 13 - 13. We are as rich as the things we buy with money. Money would make us to be rich, even when God's gifts are used up had money truly make people to be rich. Money will be useless when God's free gifts are no more. You could have a gazillion dollars x 10, still being dirt poor.
Haha, you can’t call something you have faith in “truth”… that’s why it’s called faith.

you talking about spiritual wealth while I was talking about economics and actual material wealth. Did you really not understand that?

A dumbed down public, more reliant upon the government, is a more compliant and manageable public.
Welcome to Communism 101.

You need to know what faithlessness is. Faithless beings want things that are seen. They tremble regarding the unseen, not knowing when it will be seen. What is seen will be no more, when what is not seen, is seen. People who have faith wait for what is not seen, being happy when what is seen even when what is seen is melting in fervent heat. God has changed their body to not be burned by his light. Why need faith when what is not seen is finally seen? The church makes faith to be belief systems. That is false. Spiritual things are not seen. God's gifts are seen. Money that God did not make is seen. Devils don't want money to disappear. They are faithless. Jesus did not talk about economics.
You are correct. You believe these things are true because you have faith that they are true. Faith is a belief not based on truth and facts but based on, well faith.

Marxists and Marxist philosophy are losers. By rewarding failures, they encourage failure. This is why our country is on its way to poverty and chaos. In the end, the young generation will get what their stupidity is demanding and they're not going to like it.
Too right, they are. They've grown up having their "reality" managed by a handful of propagandists and when you add to that, actual hate that is being pushed against political opponents, they are primed to be more dedicated to talking points than facts. By the time they realize that even THEY are being targeted for their opinions not meeting the "woke standard", it will be FAR TOO LATE to stand for freedom of ideas.

You have to be the stupidest and/or worst liar on the planet.
The Continent that brought us NAZI’s and created the Holocaust has no racial bias! Vikings, no bias there! Gypsy hunts are cool! Spain murdering 12,000 because of race, just a hiccup! I should drop you off in Bosnia. Most of Europe even today is a caste system.
Europeans settled America, Dufus. And Native Americans were already practicing slavery before the first European landed.
But that’s so yesterday!
Okey Dokey.
Whitey time!

One black. A Frenchman who’s trying to improve the deplorable working conditions of minorities in Europe.
Where’s their Obama, Thomas, Harris, Cruz, Jackson, etc etc etc?
How can a face be a race, when a face is a face in whatever place?

God did not reward all of us with wealth, that we get from the planet? People do an anti- reward thing charging his children a price. That price makes people think: I am independent. The fallen Lucifer says the same thing. People are clueless. Be clueless no more.
Do you ever respond on topic to any thread without digressing into some incoherent religious blather? Stay on the religion forum or get a fucking hold of yourself.

The fundamental fact that the Left refuses to face is that Blacks and Hispanics are "systemically" inferior when it comes to academic/intelligence criteria. This is not to say that all of such people are individually inferior; there is a bell-curve spread among all demographics, and one will find a percentage of Blacks and Hispanics who are exceptional, but when you look at large numbers of people competing for rewards that are awarded based on knowledge, intelligence, or aptitude, those groups will ALWAYS be markedly underrepresented, when compared to their portion of the overall population.

As for the ABA and the AMA telling professional schools to admit more "minorities" (or whatever word they use), one can only hope that the Bar Exams and the Medical Board exams will weed out those who graduate but are lacking in the requisite knowledge to function in those fields. There are A LOT of Black law school grads now who have never passed the Bar, and may not work as attorneys.

The only way to get proportional representation in areas where excellence is required is to tear down the standards and pretend that they are not valid, or that the test criteria are culturally biased - a claim that has been around for generations and has been debunked time after time.

Now we have the resurrected claim that where Blacks and Hispanics come out on the short end of the stick, it is because of racism. This is preposterous, and disproven daily by the number of Blacks and Hispanics who succeed conspicuously. I guess they just forgot or overlooked the fact that they couldn't get ahead because of their race.

It is astounding the number of clear and obvious facts that Leftists daily deny. Next thing you know, the President will be claiming that some homely-man-doctor is the first female four-star admiral in the Federal Government.

Idiots like you are why idiots on the other side push that CRT crap. Your ignorant bullshit is not helping, so STFU. Go whine about sports again.

Interestingly, Teachers are the greatest critics of IQ tests, SAT's and the like. Not coincidentally, Teachers, as a group, do rather dreadfully on such tests. The data on race and IQ is easy to find if you only look for it; undoubtedly you lack the interest in learning that your dearly-held beliefs are...wrong.

Draw your own conclusions.

Equity is a CRT idea. It is the "E" in DEI, Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion. Equity is not equality; equality is about giving everyone an equal chance, equity is about mandating equal outcomes, no matter what the actual performance level.

But CRT isn't in the schools, everyone.

I think the term and concept of “white privilege” is a big factor that muddies the water. Wasn’t the smartest initiative by the civil rights activists IMO as it causes more fights and division than progress
There's lots of white privilege, all right. But we earn it.

They mostly do crimes and prostitution.

It sure screws up our reporting statistics. Like who is the first female four-star admiral ----- wait, she's ...a MAN??

How about mass murder stats? Women rarely do this. But some three years ago in Maryland a diagnosed schizophrenic man, who didn't even change his clothes or anything to make an effort to pretend to be a woman, shot a bunch of people at a goods warehouse and said he was a woman (he had been hired as a security guard but had to drive home to Baltimore for a weapon: they knew better than to give these guards weapons there!) and pretty soon all these newspapers around the country are calling him "she" and totally ruining the statistics for how many mass murders are done by women.

Doesn't surprise me ---- teaching is a low-income, low qualifications job.

Have YOU ever been told to teach CRT to your students?

Education majors and the SAT:


Note that Education majors are below 500 (which mathematically is the MEAN) in all three areas.

And these are the people who are teaching our children.

My belief is that there should be no EDUCATION major. People who want to teach should major in an actual subject, and have a minor in Education...and this goes emphatically for math and science teachers.

Do you really think every teacher in the country majored in Education?
