My appearance on Tucker Carlson Tonight about our new database and interactive map of Critical Race Training in Higher Education, criticalrace.org: “we’re trying to empower parents and students”
I appeared tonight on Tucker Carlson Tonight to talk about Legal Insurrection Foundation‘s new project, the website Critical Race Training In Higher Education (criticalrace.org).
You can read about the project at Legal Insurrection launches ‘Critical Race Training In Higher Education’ website.
The reaction was overwhelming. At one point shortly after the segment aired, we had 79,000 concurrent users, flowing in at 1,000 new users a minute. That is insane traffic.
Here is the video, the transcipt is below:

TUCKER: Well, many colleges and universities now teach something called critical race theory. Now, according to critical race theory, some races are inherently better than other races. This isn’t an assault on racism. It is racism and it’s spreading. Bewilderingly the deepest possible betrayal of the promise of this country of every Martin Luther King speech ever given. And yet it’s in your kid’s school. One law professor started a website called critical race.org. Once again, that’s critical race dot, or you can use that site to track the spread of these diseased ideas in schools and seeing if they’ve infected the schools that your children go to. Bill Jacobson is a professor at Cornell law school. He started this. He joins us tonight. Professor, thanks so much for coming on. You’re a brave man, even to criticize this highly fashionable, deeply poisonous idea, but you’re actually tracking it. Why are you doing this? What have you found?
WAJ: Sure. Hi Tucker. Well, the reason I started to follow it was at Cornell university where I teach in law school. They implemented a push over the summer to embed what they call anti-racism ideology into every aspect of the campus. And as you know, and you’ve explained on your show, anti racism does not actually mean what people think it means. It actually is very racist. It’s current discrimination in order to remedy past discrimination is the ideology. So I saw this developing, I started to research it. I was going to write an op-ed or an article about it. And then I realized it was almost everywhere. And so we began to gather the data we’re focused now on higher education, because that’s the source of all this. That’s where the ideology developed and that’s where people are trained. And we’ve created criticalrace.org, which is a database with an interactive map where people can find out what the colleges and universities to, which they may be sending their children or their children who may be going have going on.
And it really is a full fledged database. You can hover over the map. You can click on your state. You can click on your school. We have 220 universities in the database now, and we’re expecting to expand it to 500 and you can find out what’s going on. Everything is sourced. Everything is linked and the database is actually neutral. It’s just data. You can find out what’s going on in schools. Maybe you like it. Maybe you want your children to be sent to a school where they get indoctrinated, or maybe you’re going to send them to a school where you don’t know what’s going on. And this is a way to find out.
TUCKER: It’s amazing. What, what it, and what a public service, by the way, I don’t think anyone in good faith could argue against more knowledge. Um, which is what you’re providing. What’s the reaction been to this?
WAJ: The reaction so far been overwhelmingly favorable. We just rolled it out this week. We have a tip line, a contact form. A lot of people have been submitting information about the universities and colleges. And again, we only use publicly sourced information. This is what the colleges tell themselves. They love to talk about this stuff. They love to pat themselves on the back about this, but it probably doesn’t make it to their admissions brochures. And you can find this out at our website and it’s been overwhelmingly favorable. And I’ll tell you the one big reaction we’ve gotten is when you’re going to do this for K-12, because K-12 is where a lot of the problems are happening. Now. I’m not sure when we’re going to be able to roll out something like that.
But a lot of parents we’re entering admission season. You’re going to be looking at schools. Don’t just worry about what athletic facilities they have, what the dining room serves, worry about, whether your children are going to have to take mandatory courses and mandatory training in an ideology, which as you’ve indicated is the complete opposite of everything we’ve been taught to believe is good and just, which is to view people based on their inherent worth and their worthiness and not to pay attention to the skin tone color of them. But that’s, what’s being taught on campuses is that the overwhelmingly most important thing in society is the color of your skin and everything derives from that. And you need to know, and we’re trying to empower parents and students.
TUCKER: Well, bless you for doing that. Some races are better than others. I, you know, I thought we kind of settled the question about whether that was poison or not. It is poison it’ll destroy your kids. It will wreck the country. So thank you for fighting back. I appreciate it. Great. Thank you.DONATE
