“To no one’s surprise, it also cites The New York Times’ dubious 1619 Project and Ibram X. Kendi”
Just another reminder that this ideology has been embedded pretty much everywhere.

Celebrating Founding Fathers Is ‘Structural Racism,’ National Archives Says
Venerating and celebrating the Founding Fathers is an example of “structural racism,” apparently.
That’s the conclusion of a recently released document created by a National Archives and Records Administration task force on racism.
The National Archives and Records Administration is a federal agency charged with taking care of our country’s governmental and historical records, including the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution.
The lengthy internal document—completed in April, but not released until earlier this month—never mentions critical race theory by name, but it uses all of critical race theory’s buzzwords, lingo, and style of analysis.
It highlights “white privilege,” “systemic racism,” and “equity” numerous times.
To no one’s surprise, it also cites The New York Times’ dubious 1619 Project and Ibram X. Kendi, the self-styled “anti-racist” whose ideas sound a lot like racism.
The Rotunda of the Capitol building itself is deeply problematic because, according to the task force, it “lauds wealthy white men in the nation’s founding while marginalizing BIPOC [black, Indigenous, and other people of color], women, and other communities.”
So, in the name of “diversity, equity, and inclusion,”—the “liberte, egalite, fraternite” of the modern age—the National Archives’ task force has recommended drastic changes to how our founding documents and the Founding Fathers are presented to the public.
