Colleges Planning to Use MLK Day to Push CRT and Democrat “Voter Reform”
“Ibram X. Kendi, Nikole Hannah-Jones, and Carol Anderson are among the public intellectuals who are slated to give talks either on MLK day or in the days following.”
The basic premise of Critical Race Theory flies in the face of everything MLK taught and believed.

Colleges are using MLK Day to push CRT & Dems’ voting legislation
A number of colleges and universities are inviting Critical Race Theorists and proponents of other forms of progressive racial politics to speak during events meant to commemorate Martin Luther King Jr. day. One school is going so far as to ask students to “advocate” for both the Freedom to Vote Act and the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act.
Ibram X. Kendi, Nikole Hannah-Jones, and Carol Anderson are among the public intellectuals who are slated to give talks either on MLK day or in the days following. Campus Reform compiled information from seven academic institutions that have invited progressive activists to their campuses for MLK day.
Dartmouth College, an Ivy-League school in New Hampshire, invited Robert S. Harvey to give the keynote speech for their series of MLK events. Harvey authored “Abolitionist Leadership in Schools: Undoing Systemic Injustice Through Communally Conscious Education”, a book aimed at teaching public school administrators about “recreating, restructuring, and reorienting” their labor to better serve “systemically-oppressed people.”
In a separate opinion piece, Harvey argued that COVID-19 provided an opportunity for “MLK’s Dream Of Universal Basic Income” to become reality.
Public universities are inviting liberal activists to give presentations in honor of Martin Luther King Jr.
Western Washington University, for instance, will host Ibram X. Kendi, one professor often credited with popularizing Critical Race Theory, and will be holding events promoting the Democrat-sponsored election legislation currently being considered in Congress.
“WWU, along with our regional partners, encourages our community to honor the King family’s request to educate, advocate, and activate in support of the Freedom to Vote Act and the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act currently before the U.S. Congress,” reads the WWU event description.

Calling those people “intellectuals” is an insult to actual intellectuals.
We have sunk SOOOOOoooooo low!
Because that’s precisely what Dr. King dreamed of. SMH
Certainly you don’t expect me, a student, to come in to campus on Martin Luther King’s holiday?
Twitter was certainly run afoul with the racist police on how to properly interpret MLK (hint; if not woke, it was wrong and you were a racist for suggesting otherwise)
