A father and daughter push back on CRT

I want to show a very heartwarming video that went viral recently. It’s from a dad and his daughter who talk about why Critical Race Theory (CRT) is so bad. What makes CRT so dangerous and toxic is that relatively few people understannd it, yet this destructive ideology is being forced on our school children across this country. Ironically, CRT promotes racism and is a soft form of discrimination.

The video goes on to give a summary explanation of CRT, but I also wrote more about CRT here.

This was originally a TikToc video posted by Kory Yeshua and his daughter Royalty. What I love about this video is that children seem to know what true equality and tolerance means more than the adults who promote this radical ne0-Marxist doctrine.

Little Royalty shows herself to be true royalty in how she clearly understands with refreshing simplicity that God values every human being, regardless of color or ethnicity. She also beautifully echoes the immortal words of Martin Luther King, Jr. in his “I Have a Dream Speech,” delivered on August 28, 1963 at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington D.C.:

“I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.”

This, of course, echoes Scripture. Here are just a couple of examples:

God doesn’t look at what people see. People judge by what is on the outside, but the Lord looks at the heart. (1 Sam.16:7b ERB*)

28 Now, in Christ, it doesn’t matter if you are a Jew or a Greek, a slave or free, male or female. You are all the same in Christ Jesus. (Gal.3:28 ERB*)

CRT, and all current forms of Identity Politics, say the exact opposite, that what skin color you were born with does matter (and, apparently, the content of your character does not matter), and that we should be divided into identity groups—labeling them either the oppressors (basically all white people) or the oppressed—which shows that its core premise is pure Marxist ideology.

If you’re like me, having witnessed all the insanely prejudical and hypocritical things being forced on the American people lately, you’ll be encouraged by the growing resistence to this cancerous ideology.

While our current President talks about unity and people coming together, his policies (including forcing CRT on us by executive fiat) have been the most divisive in history.

Beloved, what this father and daughter are saying is what will actually bring us all together, not divisive ideology like CRT. It’s my prayer that we will listen to our children on how to love and accept all people for who they are, regardless of race or any other politically-motivated distinction we seem to want to make.

Here’s a video by Sky News Australia that includes the original TikToc video.

Sky New Australia also interviewed Kora and Royalty here. It also is very encouraging.

  1. Isn’t that sweet, Mel? So adorable. Cute and a great message, too. 🙂

    As I was reading your post it occurred to me that this is why I am often ranting about evo/psych theories! Much like CRT, they reduce us to exclusively physical and material, to these flat, two dimensional beings.

      That’s a great point, IB. Those who want to reduce everything down to chemical reactions miss the proverbial forest for the trees. They definitely flatten the world and suck the life out it with their scientism. It’s also interesting that the Marxist theories and offshoots, like CRT, Identity Politics, and postmodern ideologies, begin with a naturalistic, or even an atheistic, view of the world.

      But they fail to have an answer for conscience, art, beauty, relationships, love, purpose, and all the other aspects of human life that make living worthwhile.

      When we don’t see the infinite value of ALL human life and God’s love expressed through His creation, we will eventually dumb it down to simple animal biology. And when we do that, we open the door to discrimination, hatred, and even tyranny. And we have over 100 years of history to prove it with these ideologies! You would’ve thought we would’ve jettisoned them all by now. But, no, the Marxist left keep regurgitating new ones.

    Who are the ones falling for this CRT? 🤷‍♀️

    • Mel Wild says:

      Mostly, it’s those indoctrinateded by leftist ideology through acedemia, and those totally oblivious to what’s going on but buy into their “anti-racist” rhetoric (which is, ironically, racist!) Unfortunately, CRT has now matasticized into virtually every institution of our culture, including education, media, corporations, and even the military. Sadly, some Christians have embraced it. Again, because they don’t understand it, partially because it came from the regressive adedemic left who almost present it in a Gnostic way (we have special knowledge that you don’t. Just believe us, you’re a racist!).

      I will also say that this deceptive ideology appeals to those with a good heart and who are sensitve to (true) social justice. And since most people don’t dig deeper than surface-level sloganeering and virtue-signaling from the pundits, they are ignorant to what they’re being indoctrinated with. Others don’t agree with it, but because of fear of losing their job, being called a “racist”, etc., they remain silent.
