North Carolina Father Destroys Critical Race Theory: Racism ‘Only Happening at the Government Level and On the Media’
“The policy is going back to the parents because if you think people who love America are willing to fight for it you haven’t met parents yet because I’m telling you parents will go further down any street than anyone who loves their country alone.”
Brian Echevarria, a parent and Republican candidate for North Carolina’s state Congress, went viral with his criticism of Critical Race Theory and transgender athletes.
Echevarria took his argument right to the Cabarrus County School Board on Monday. He stated that the mask mandates and pushing Critical Race Theory on students have caused parents “to take back the wheel” when it comes to policy from the federal level down to the most local level:
I’m biracial. I’m bilingual. I’m multicultural. The fact is in America and North Carolina I can do anything I want and I teach that to my children and the person who tells my little pecan-colored kids that they’re somehow oppressed based on the color of their skin would be absolutely wrong and absolutely at war with me and I think that’s the same for every parent.
What the mask showed us is that the parents, the most powerful group of people in our country, that they’re taking back the wheel. Now obviously we had to take the wheel back for the mask but we’re taking the wheel back from Washington all the way to Raleigh and into our local school board because of CRT, all of that. The parents don’t want it. It’s a big fat lie. There’s not one belief there. If you believe in CRT I want to tell you you’re a liar because that means you look at your black neighbor and say that they’re oppressed and you look at your white neighbor and say that they’re evil regardless of the experience that you’ve had with them and we’re not going to do that.
The parents in the United States of America right here in North America and Cabarrus County we know that’s not true because we believe the lives we live. The fact is I’ve been a business owner right here in North Carolina and I deal with white people, black people, Hispanic people. My children deal with everybody. And the racism is only happening at the government level and on the media. The fact is you have races and there’s like you can’t even find them hardly. You just hear stories about them.
Then Echevarria lashed out at schools allowing males to participate in female sports:
I have an eight-year-old daughter who is absolutely dynamic who can do anything athletically, intellectually, spiritually, emotionally, she is a dynamo. And I don’t want a man swimming against her in the pool. The fact is, I don’t want her playing against boys in soccer. I don’t even let my sons rough her up. Do you think I’m going to let your son rough her up?
Echevarria wrapped up his two-minute speech with a reminder that parents are in charge. When push comes to shove parents won’t back down, especially when it comes to their children:
This is what we’re talking about. The policy is going back to the parents because if you think people who love America are willing to fight for it you haven’t met parents yet because I’m telling you parents will go further down any street than anyone who loves their country alone.
