“The RI Meyerholz Elementary School was found to be teaching critical race and gender theory to elementary school students as young as third grade in Cupertino, Calif. Teaching materials… show that the kids were told in no uncertain terms about their privilege, the oppressive structure of society, and their place as oppressors… Christopher Rufo, who obtained some of the curriculum for the third graders, said that the ‘elementary school forces third-graders to deconstruct their racial and sexual identities, then rank themselves according to their power and privilege’.” – Libby Emmons, “Exposed: Racist indoctrination of third graders at a California school” – Post Millennial, January 14th, 2021.

“The Minnesota Department of Education has released its first draft of K-12 social studies standards for the next ten years, a proposal that omits most of the significant events in American history and focuses, instead, on ‘systemic racism’ and the oppression of ‘marginalized’ people throughout U.S. and Minnesota history.” – Dr. Susan Berry “Minnesota K-12 social studies draft dumps major U.S. historical events for ‘systemic racism’.” – Breitbart, January 15th, 2021.

“In cities with a large black population, for example, crime-ridden high schools have gone from plain-Jane Benjamin Franklin HS to ‘The High School for Engineering and Science’ or ‘Malcolm X School for Social Justice’ as if this cosmetic change could transform a disaster into a ‘good school.’ This fondness for symbolism is a wonderful gift for making race-related progress on the cheap.” – Joseph Kay, “Win-win racial disengagement” – American Renaissance, January 10th, 2021.

“Prof. Wolters was an honest historian; he wanted to know what really happened. He was therefore an endangered species in a profession now preoccupied with unmasking the alleged horrors of ‘race, class, and gender.’ His books were jarring to modern sensibilities, but were so carefully researched and argued that ideologues could not dismiss them.” – Jared Taylor, “Raymond Wolters – a good friend of American Renaissance – has died” – American Renaissance, December 16th, 2020.

“Strange that a country once at least literate, a country for decades way and gone the world’s font of science and technology, a country that at its apogee put men on the moon and invented the modern world, should intentionally suppress the intelligence that made it what it was and reduce itself to the level of picking wild bananas and digging for roots… Yet this is happening. From the drains of society oozes a sump of envy, of resentment, of bruised incapacity, of rabble seeking revenge against those of a higher order.” – Fred Reed, “The death of math and the fall of America’s premier high school” – American Renaissance, November 21st, 2020.
