LITTLE ROCK, Arkansas (LifeSiteNews) – New Republican Arkansas Gov. Sarah Huckabee Sanders marked her first day in office Tuesday by issuing an executive order removing Critical Race Theory (CRT) from public education.
The Daily Caller reported that Huckabee Sanders, daughter of former Republican Gov. Mike Huckabee and former Press Secretary for President Donald Trump, issued the order against CRT, a divisive academic doctrine that holds race is a “socially constructed (culturally invented) category that is used to oppress and exploit people of color,” and that “racism is inherent in the law and legal institutions of the United States insofar as they function to create and maintain social, economic, and political inequalities between whites and nonwhites, especially African Americans.”
Specifically, the order directs the Arkansas Secretary of Education to “amend, annul, or alter [any] rules, regulations, policies, materials, or communications to remove” any “communication by a public-school employee, public school representative, or guest speaker [that] compel[s] a person to adopt, affirm or profess” that people “are inherently superior or inferior to” others or “should be discriminated against or receive adverse treatment” on the basis of “color, creed, race, ethnicity, sex, age, marital status, familial status, disability, religion, national origin, or any other characteristic protected by federal or state law.”
The dangerous ideas of Critical Race Theory (CRT) are being forced on students in public schools around the country.
This is wrong and parents have had enough! It's time to join them in saying "STOP!" to this harmful and racist propaganda.
Please SIGN and SHARE this urgent petition which says "No to CRT" in public schools, and "Yes to parents' right" to strongly protest CRT.
But, what is CRT anyway and why is it so dangerous?
Critical Race Theory is a hateful system of indoctrination which teaches that one race is either superior or inferior to another race, and that the United States is inherently racist.
CRT is dangerous and hateful precisely because it teaches children who are not white to despise and envy white children simply because of their skin color. And, as a result, it also teaches white children to despise themselves simply because of the color of their skin.
CRT also erroneously teaches that American society is inherently racist, and that different, detrimental policies (like reparations for slavery and race-based pay scales) should be imposed on the population to redistribute wealth from whites to non-whites.
This type of racist/marxist propaganda should have NO place in public, taxpayer-funded schools!
And, thankfully, American parents of EVERY COLOR are raising their voices and ballots against it!
Indeed, parents understand the destructive ramifications of CRT and, despite outrageous threats from Biden's Justice Department to prosecute them, they have been strongly protesting CRT at school board meetings across the country!
And now, in the first test of its kind, a candidate who was campaigning hard against CRT just won the governorship of Virginia in a huge upset victory.
That's great news, but we now need to contact every state legislature about this crucial educational issue.
And, we need to DEMAND that they BAN Critical Race Theory from every public school in their states - both primary and high schools, and colleges!
Whereas advocates of CRT seem more intent on vengence than on teaching children of every race to respect everybody, regardless of skin color, American parents of every race understand that it is not the color of one's skin that matters, but the content of one's character (to paraphrase Martin Luther King, Jr.).
Please SIGN and SHARE this urgent petition asking all state legislatures to BAN Crititical Race Theory from public schools in their respective states.

It also prohibits students or school employees from being “required to attend trainings or orientations based on prohibited indoctrination or CRT,” and clarifies that prohibiting the imposition of CRT does not mean prohibiting discussion of it, or “of public policy issues of the day and related ideas that individuals may find unwelcome, disagreeable or offensive.”
“As long as I am governor, our schools will focus on the skills our children need to get ahead in the modern world — not brainwashing our children with a left-wing political agenda,” Huckabee Sanders said, KATV reported.
Arkansas is one of 36 states to impose varying kinds of restrictions on CRT in public schools, which along with controversial LGBT materials have in recent years fueled a parent backlash that has been credited with Republican gains in states like Florida and Virginia, whose current respective governors have taken leading roles on the issue.
