Australian Senate Bans Critical Race Theory from Classrooms

Australian Senate Bans Critical Race Theory from Classrooms. By James Morrow.

The Senate voted Monday night to call on the federal government to keep contentious “critical race theory” doctrines out of the national curriculum.

By a vote of 30-28, the Senate supported a notice of motion put forward by One Nation leader Pauline Hanson calling “on the federal government to reject critical race theory from the national curriculum.” …

Speaking at a conservative conference in Texas last week, Republican Senator Ted Cruz blasted critical race theory, saying it “says every white person is a racist.”

“Critical race theory says America’s fundamentally racist and irredeemably racist. Critical race theory seeks to turn us against each other and if someone has a different colour skin, seeks to make us hate that person.”

“And let me tell you right now, critical race theory is bigoted, it is a lie and it is every bit as racist as the Klansmen in white sheets,” Senator Cruz said.
