On a Friday evening and as November looms, the White House has opened another front in the culture war. At the direction of the president, the Office of Management and Budget is ordering all federal agencies to "cease and desist" any government training programs that include any reference to "critical race theory" or "white privilege,"

Among the ideas underpinning CRT, now formally condemned by the White House, is that the law and all accompanying legal institutions are inherently racist, and that race itself has no biological grounds. The concept of ethnicity is, instead, the product of a white society that uses systems and institutions to advance its own interests at the expense of minorities.
A thoroughly destructive view of the universe, espoused by so, so many Dems and teachers. Even in an enlightened community such as Oak Park.
