Precious McKesson, a racial radical, Critical Race Theory (CRT) activist, and Nebraska Democrat, has been appointed to Special Assistant in the U.S. Department of Education’s Office of Communication and Outreach.
McKesson, Nebraska Democrat Black Caucus Chair and former statewide Finance Director, recently embedded herself in the CRT issue when she and other colleagues from the Nebraska Democrat Party’s Latinx [sic], black, and Native caucuses wrote an August 11 op-ed for the Lincoln Journal Star to oppose a measure to ban Critical Race Theory from being taught at the University of Nebraska.
McKesson and co-authors Dulce Sherman and Collette Yellow Robe wrote, “Simply put, CRT examines social, cultural and legal issues as they relate to race and racism. Students would be taught about the systemic racism that still exists today and permeates our society.”
But this does not reflect many parents or students experiences as a radical education curriculum has taken root, through the lens of manifestly racist Critical Race Theory, which insists skin color should be the primary trait to judge others; or that blacks are inherently worthless in American society, and are unable to engage in “objective, rational linear thinking” or be on time; or that a black person’s purported worthlessness is directly attributable to some ether that is core to the existence of being a white person; and that because of these attributes, all white people are necessarily racist.
However, according to McKesson, it is the attempts to stop the teaching of the indoctrination scheme that “create[s] a wedge between white communities and communities of color, making us the villain.” Continuing further, the new Department of Education appointee also believes that if Critical Race Theory were not an educational mainstay, “students would not be taught about the Tulsa race massacre” and “Our kids would never learn about the Trail of Tears,” calling attempts to block its teaching a “red herring resolution to erase history.”
McKesson and her comrades concluded, “Denying our factual history as communities of color is like denying we existed.”
Republican Study Committee Chair Rep. Jim Banks (R-IN) said of McKesson’s appointment that “The Biden administration claims CRT [Critical Race Theory] doesn’t exist, then appoints a CRT activist to the Department of Education and sics the FBI on parents who oppose their poisonous ideology,” according to the Daily Mail.
Banks was referring to Attorney General Merrick Garland’s recent order to sic the FBI on parents who oppose their children to be indoctrinated in public schools with Critical Race Theory.
McKesson’s appointment is seen as a “slap in the face to parents across the country,” stated Banks.
“At a time when President Biden’s Justice Department is targeting school parents for simply voicing their concerns and objection to the teaching of radical curriculum in our nation’s schools,” Sen. Roger Marshall (R-KS) began to condemn McKesson’s appointment, “saying it is shocking, but not surprising, that they’ve moved to confirm another CRT advocate to a high rank within the Department of Education.”
McKesson is part of the team responsible for communicating department policy to parents and the general public in her new position. She was sworn in on October 4.
