Born Evil: For White Girls Who Have Considered Suicide When Critical Race Theory Is Too Much
“I I would like black children to be completely empowered, to know that they are beautiful in their dark, but in order to do that I don’t have to make white children feel bad for being white.
-Condoleezza Rice on The View 10/20/21
Recently, a white mother in Virginia went viral for comments she made at a meeting of the Loudoun County Public School Board. As a perfectly timed update of the quote above, the woman, whose identity was withheld, took her 6-year-old daughter out of school because she came home from school one day questioning her racial identity correlated with being “born evil”. . “
There is a lot of word witchcraft that adds to the miasma of today’s integrated pandemics. Let me try my own lyrical magic. Black cats bring bad luck, bad guys wear black, it must be a white who started it all. Without quotes, you might think this sentence was written by me, which makes sense under the default presumption of white criticism from a black man. However, the credit goes to a white rapper named MC Serch. See what I did there?
As with Defund the Police, I think we are promoting the concept of Critical breed theory all false. It’s too black and needs to be more centered on white. We need to learn more about all the people in American history who died simply because they were white.
For example, how many of us have heard of abolitionist John Brown in school? Why not? He was originally from Charles Town, Virginia. Do you think Virginia’s mother would object to her daughter learning about Brown’s importance before the Civil War? I ask because when she addressed the school board, she described her final snowflake moment like this:
“First of all, it was early spring 2020 when my 6 year old daughter came to me grimly and asked me if she was born mean because she was a white person; something she learned in a history lesson in school.

Well, first of all, notice how she just looked at what the history lesson was, specifically. What if the school taught John Brown from Virginia? Isn’t that part of the legacy they’re talking about?
Second, when did public schools start teaching history in grade one? Unless it’s Thanksgiving, then… oh, oops, whatever.
Finally, before accepting the financial difficulties and the inconveniences of proximity linked to the transfer of her daughter to a private school, she could not think of an answer which reinforces her whiteness without making her feel personally responsible for the actions of the past. Maybe: “No my porcelain princess, a very long time ago a small number of whites were mean to blacks and even though we were kind enough to free them from slavery they never said thank you. , so we made laws that kept them separate from us before making them equal. Black is beautiful but Santa, Jesus and the best Barbie dolls are all white. If you have any problems with them, call the police.
Tasteful cynicism aside, it seems his daughter was quite advanced in her critical thinking. Instead of nurturing a precocious spirit, the mother stifled development with racist reflexes and the right to privilege.
When Condoleezza Rice was 8 years old, she had no option to change schools or not to fear death. Raised in Birmingham, Alabama, she was friends with Carol McNair, one of four little girls who died in the 16th Street Baptist Church bombing. Rice was the daughter of a pastor whose church was nearby. To say that it could have been her who died is an understatement. In an interview with OWN, Rice says:
“Birmingham was starting to be known as ‘Bombingham’ because there were so many unsolved bombings. “
Rice has been repeatedly recorded as calling the day an act of “domestic terrorism.” Martin Luther King, Jr. called the bombing “one of the most vicious and tragic crimes ever against humanity”, but now many conservatives, who don’t give a damn about black people, are co-opting his judge quotes character on the color of the skin as if this is how the 911 operators ask you to describe the culprits.
Even skin people like ESPN’s Sage Steele have hinted that former POTUS Barack Obama’s self-identification as Black (making sure to add that his black father was missing from his childhood) was an affront. to the white side of his family who raised him. Again, for the clearance sales in the back, when white supremacists target people who look like the 44th President, they don’t seem to care what percentage of racial DNA or what they selected in the census. To create a color blindness of convenience is to deprive all language of the literal definition of a rainbow – the rainbow which is enuf.
ESPN presenter Sage Steele told Jay Cutler it was “fascinating.” Obama said he was black on his census form “considering his black father was nowhere to be found”. pic.twitter.com/dfrnDydFd8

Words do not evolve; they change shape to protect the criminals who profit from the division and the perpetrators of hatred who want to play the victims under the banner of patriotism. Oh, the witchcraft of whiteness, where big is small and black coffee has milk if you can create some sort of legal lactose reclassification. No, that doesn’t make sense, which is the point – a mug of Mumbo Jumbo, please.
In this word salad, can we use lettuce to qualify as Caesar if it contains croutons and the right dressing? I am saying that critical race theory could be better served by excluding black subjects altogether. Let’s learn about the 1963 attack through the lens of all-white actors. Set the stage with George Wallace, then Governor of Alabama. Discuss how the FBI concluded that the crime was committed by four members of the Klu Klux Klan in 1965, but that only one person, Robert Chambliss, was convicted 14 years later. One of the accomplices died in 1994 and the other two were not convicted until 2001 and 2002.
It is not ancient history.
Since no child should feel like they were “born bad” based on their skin color, there must be diversity within whiteness. Students are also expected to learn more about whites like Michael Schwerner, Andrew Goodman, and Viola Liuzzo. When they find out how and why they all died, students might critically compare it to recent history with someone like Heather Heyer who was killed at Unite the Right rallies in Charlottesville, Virginia.
Even under the assumption, the irony of the CRT is that if the collegiate app were simply a class debating the CRT’s public discourse in society, it would be just as effective as its actual program. It has become a social experience that exposes our critical condition. We shouldn’t have to explain that Toni Morrison’s “Beloved” is English literature, not a historical text, and then, in turn, we have disputes over Project 1619. All of these racial topics are not arguments intellectuals; these are emotions, based on how the unfiltered story makes white people feel.
This guy says critical race theory is the most important issue in the Virginia election. He also says he has no idea what Critical Race Theory is. pic.twitter.com/lBrGy4lRBG

This brings us back to Condi the quilt; which seems to advocate a docile assimilation and a myth of impartial meritocracy for blacks; where classical training in instruments and ballet will overcome obstacles, arrests and weapons formed against us. Ignore the bombs – the trends of mass destruction and conceptions of mass incarceration are their problem, not yours – is what is suggested in his motivational speeches.
I understand what Rice IS TRYING to say, but she speaks with this contempt of “moving on” as if it is rare for little girls of color to feel bad about history lessons being taught, negative portrayals, from the use of coded language or direct insults uttered by students and teachers from the days of early integration until today – a period parallel to Rice’s lifespan. I try to ignore his messages by performing gestures like MC Serch’s ‘gas face’, but I’m too sickened by my stubborn conclusion that Condi would rather pamper Virginia’s mother and daughter by reaffirming their rather than burden them with remembering her childhood friend, Carol McNair, a victim of the evil that still exists.
