Five Virginia families have filed a lawsuit against the Albemarle school district for indoctrinating students in anti-white critical race theory, seeking to block the implementation of a far-left curriculum selected by the school district in 2019.
The curriculum in question requires K-12 students to acknowledge the left-wing lie of “white privilege,” nailing them for so-called “passive racism” if they fail to bend the knee before the lie. Albemarle schools curriculum are colored with teachings from neoracist author Ibram X. Kendi, content which the lawsuit’s court documents lay out in detail.
“A public school should not, and in this case under the law cannot, indoctrinate kids in a destructive, race-based ideology,” Ryan Bangert, senior counsel at Alliance Defending Freedom(which is litigating the case on behalf of the plaintiffs), told Fox News on Thusday. Bangert said that Albemarle students were “being told that they are defined by their race and nothing else. They’re being told that they fit into groups of oppressors or groups of subordinate oppressed based entirely on their race and nothing else, that their success in life or their lack of success in life will be determined by their race.”
The curriculum in question likens a wide variety of behaviors and beliefs to “racism,” thoroughly endorsing the CRT precept of a world defined and dominated by omniscient “white privilege” and racism. One slide in the Albemarle curriculum likens preference for verbal communication itself and “task oriented” thinking as “white,” in madness that assigns everyday human behaviors to racialized factions.
The lawsuit could have potential national civil rights repercussions, with a ruling in a high court standing to bar the teaching of anti-white racism in public schools as incompatible with the Civil Rights Act.
“Schools exist to educate, not indoctrinate children,” ADF senior counsel Kate Anderson said in a news release regarding the lawsuit. “Every parent has the right to protect their children against a school district that uses their authority to indoctrinate students in harmful ideologies. Our clients believe that every person is made in the image of God, deserves respect, and therefore, should not be punished or rewarded for something over which they have no control. Public schools have no right to demean students because of their race, ethnicity, or religion.”
