‘So Bad And So Insulting’: Larry Elder Would Support Banning Critical Race Theory In California’s Public Schools


During an interview with Fox News, Larry Elder said that he would support legislation banning Critical Race Theory (CRT) in public schools. Elder, who is the frontrunner among candidates opposing California Governor Gavin Newsom in the upcoming recall election, said, “My preference is for local school boards to decide what the curriculum is, but I think this is so bad and so insulting that I would look into some legislation like that.” Critical Race Theory “teaches little white boys and girls that they are oppressors and little black boys and girls that they are eternal victims,” Elder added. “Some critics of CRT have mistaken or mislabeled any discussion of equity, diversity or ethnic studies as equivalent to CRT. Although certain approaches to ethnic studies may incorporate elements of CRT — as these concepts are both concerned with how race is constructed and the political, historical, social and cultural effects of race and ethnicity — they are not synonymous or interchangeable,” the CSBA claims. […] “As typically taught in K-12 schools today, ethnic studies aims to build greater appreciation, understanding and respect between students of different backgrounds.”
