Judicial Watch group announced that it has recently obtained a document from Montgomery County Public Schools (MCPS) that revealed that the schools had provided $454,000 to an “Anti-racist system audit” and promoted critical race theory, which stems from Marxism.
Students in MCPS were told that the term “Make America Great Again” (MAGA) was an example of “covert white supremacy,” according to the 685-page records.
MAGA is listed below “lynching,” “hate crimes,” “the N-word,” and “racial slurs” on a pyramid. The students were also taught that “white privilege” refers to being favored by school officials and having a favorable relationship with the police.
In a class on “social justice” at Thomas Pyle Middle School, a school of MCPS, there was a slide titled, “What is institutional racism?”. Students are shown a pyramid slide showing “Differences between overt and covert hateful white supremacy in the class.” According to the pyramid, MAGA is a term of “covert white supremacy,” ranking only below “racial slurs.”
The word “genocide” starts a different pyramid slide.
In another slide, “Implicit Bias, Structural Racism” is defined as: “Race is created to justify enslaving people from Africa.”
“National narrative [ideology, belief system] about people of color being ‘less than human [and less than white] justifies mistreatment and inequality [white supremacy].”
“Dominant narratives about race (family, media, society) coupled with racialized structural arrangements and differential outcomes by race all prime us to believe that people of color are inferior to white people.”
“What is White Privilege?” the students are asked. White privilege is described as having “a favorable relationship with the police in general,” “soaking in media that is overtly biased against my race,” and “living unaware of the dire state of racism today,” among other things.
The students are suggested to view an interview with Patrisse Cullors, a founder of Black Lives Matter. The class mentioned “definitions” as follows: “Black Lives Matter” is “a political movement to address systemic and state violence against African Americans, and is an ideological and political intervention in a world where Black lives are systematically and intentionally targeted for the demise.”
“Racist policies” is “no such thing as a nonracist or race-neutral policy.”
“White Privilege” is “to the unquestioned and unearned set of advantages, entitlements, benefits, and choices bestowed on people solely because they are white.”
“White Supremacy” is “to the dominant, unquestioned standards of behavior and ways of functioning embodied by the vast majority of institutions in the United States.”
The money was allocated by The Mid-Atlantic Equity Consortium, a company that claims that their “expertise in using intersectionality as part of its theory of change makes us uniquely positioned to conduct the Anti-Racist Audit and mitigate the root causes of systemic barriers.”
