"Russ Vought, director of the Office of Management and Budget, wrote a memo informing agencies of Trump's instruction to stop using controversial forms of training on “critical race theory,” “white privilege” and “any other training or propaganda effort that teaches or suggests either...that the United States is an inherently racist or evil country or...that any race or ethnicity is inherently racist or evil.”
According to Rufo on his twitter account: "The @CDCgov is moving forward with a critical race theory training program—in violation of @POTUS' executive action. I've obtained leaked documents that outline the CDC's plan to "examine the mechanisms of systemic racism" and address "White supremacist ideology."
Below is their course outline.
Critical Race Theory is an academic theory that has taken hold in educational institutions, and business. Its central premise is that racism is in every aspect of everyone's life. It seeks to dismantle individualism and free societies and replace them with a more totalitarian style of government.
Critical Race Theory believes that science, reason, and evidence are "white thinking" and seeks to replace them with "story-telling" and "lived experience," a more "black" alternative.
And one crucial argument of Critical Race Theory advocates is that anyone disagreeing with CRT is a racist or white supremacist. Even if that person is a person of color.
A more comprehensive list of goals of Critical Race Theory can be found on the website New Discourses.
Rufo obtained the leaked documents and below is his twitter feed showing the course outline and PowerPoint presentation given by the CDC.
Why the Center for Disease Control would promote an academic theory rooted in totalitarian ideology is a question for Robert Redfield. Especially given the pandemic the world is currently facing.
