Senate passes amendment to prohibit funding of Critical Race Theory in public schools

The U.S. Senate, astoundingly, appears evenly divided on whether their own country is a good and noble place or a toxic cesspool of racism that must be overthrown.

As in, 50-to-49 divided.

An amendment to a budget reconciliation package was introduced on Aug. 10 by Sen. Tom Cotton, and prohibits federal funds from being used to promote Critical Race Theory (CRT) in Pre-K programs and K-12 schools — the teaching dogma that America is inherently racist along with its white citizens.

Cotton’s amendment passed in a razor-thin 50-49 vote, according to 5NewsOnline in Arkansas.

“In America, our rights have no color, our law and society should be colorblind, and, as Dr. Martin Luther King said, we should not be judged by the color of our skin, but by the content of our character,” Cotton said.

Cooked up in the 1970s and ’80s, CRT views America’s history strictly through the lens of racism. It insists that racism is built into the nation’s institutions to maintain the dominance of whites, according to the pro-CRT Associated Press.

“Sadly, today some want to replace our Founding principles with an un-American ideology called Critical Race Theory,” Cotton said. “They want to teach our children that America is not a good nation but a racist nation. Those teachings are wrong and our tax dollars should not support them.”
