I would like to make comment to William Bugg's statement in his May 28 letter to the editor (Critical of critical race theory) regarding, to paraphrase, his concern, even his fear that our country is being slowly devoured by people that are not Americans, though they may be citizens.

In response, I cannot help but think that the Native American tribes of the Americas and Africa must have felt the same way when the powers of Europe and unfortunately, even our forefathers enslaved, overwhelmed, slaughtered and stole their lands, and systematically worked to eliminate their cultures.

While I'm not knowledgable of critical race theory, if it in any way helps educate people and includes an honest account of how nations, peoples and religions have worked to subjugate and even eliminate other peoples and cultures throughout history, that can't be bad.

Presenting and teaching the whole truth, including the ugly parts, can only lead to a better understanding of our problems, how to solve them, and how to avoid our past mistakes.

I think what has been marked as the token name ‘credible race history’ is more about America’s history doesn’t start with or end with Jackie Robinson for Martin Luther King. It started in 1619 with slavery. Followed by laws, governing, persecution and the exploding and exclusion exclusion of minority contributions. I doubt most commenters hear ever know about Benjamin Banneker, Garret Morgan, Charles Drew, Sojourner Truth, James Forten, Robert Gordon, or the Beatrice food founder, Reginald Lewis. There are plenty of others left out of the American experience.

Extra credit: look up Peter Ogden - Odd Fellows. Have you ever heard of the charitable organization “Odd Fellows”? Do you know about the Buffalo soldiers?

My problem with Butt, is he’s either ignorant or doesn’t wanting to know American history. That only leads to more further racial divide. I don’think it’s wise to send your kids off into the world with their understanding of American History only quoting rap lyrics somehow feeling they are down with Blacks “give me five”, then surprise they aren’t accepted. 🧐. That’s a white critical race theory.

Good letter, sir.

Joe,it might be better not to comment on issues with which you have no familiarity

Awteam2021

You do gjthuro? Are you familiar with Black feminist writers of the 19 century such as, Hannah Bond, Julia C. Collins, Frances Watkins Harper or Harriet E. Wilson who where all instrumental in the social progress and advancements of all women’s rights leading to the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution: Women's Right to Vote (1920) , only to be back stabbed. Their quotes where often used by white women and men in speeches supporting the American suffrage movement. But they aren’t included in American history books. I noted ‘Black women writers’ be cause I think you are a female. So you might raemember Susan B Anthony and Elizabeth Stanton and their relationship with Black women? Anthony’s Image was placed on the silver dollar. A white women for Black’s rights. Of course you remember that. Right? Trump pardon Anthony? 🤦‍♂️ What’s up with that? Her Image was already on an American coin. Aren’t you familiar. You should share your familiarity, comment. I don’t think you will.

AWteam it’s going take Jethro a tad of time to research everything you just posted about ?? But I would love to see her share her “sources” though, then we will see how familiar she is with her knowledge? Cause it appears there is some questionable sources out there in the knowledge world..,,🤔🤔 so....but no I’m not holding my breath for a response anytime soon....

A&A sure does have a way with words

artandarchitecture

Oh my gosh--how did I miss this article: May 28 LTE 'Critical of critical race theory'??

"...stole their lands, and systematically worked to eliminate their cultures."

"stole" = Fought for, battled & *WON*

(The sour-grapes attitude is just so unbecoming.)

"eliminate their cultures"

Giving them three-hundred and twenty-six solid ethnostates within the United States. (I'd give my right arm if my sons could be guaranteed this sort of protection & sovereignty. But this would never happen, because every other group seems to only be out for their own people.)

I completely agree with the pro-black separatists who would like their own voluntary ethnostate within the U.S.

"While I'm not knowledgable of critical race theory, if it in any way helps educate people and includes an honest account..."

It's obvious you're not informed about CRT, if you say you value truth. CRT is all about advancing a modern [socialist-communist political] agenda. If you'd like, I can offer articles from the Marxist creators of CRT where they openly announce this.

There is SO much we can learn from *true* buried, history--that multi-culturalism always fails, & inevitably ends in religious or race wars.

So many people say, "We all bleed red blood, especially when fighting together..." These folks are completely unaware of all the HIGHLY-suppressed violent, race-related, mutinies, & fraggings within our U.S. armed services (particularly on submarines & when fighting overseas.)

Stole...as in killed them all to take it by force...same as a robbery...but far worse. Stoles is totally appropriate as to what happened.

PurplePickles aka L&M

Art...you are an odd duck..so what is your source for all this info?

CRT is all about advancing a modern [socialist-communist political] agenda. If you'd like, I can offer articles from the Marxist creators of CRT where they openly announce this...please do offer the articles...

PurplePickles aka L&M

Someone's blog isn't a credible source ....nor is anything from OAN or any other right wing source. You don't think critically about most things do you?

threecents

Yah, you might just as well ask a flat earther for their sources. A&A has embraced the stupid side of the force, and it does not look like she has a way back.

PurplePickles aka L&M

@threecents

Oh I agree with you 100%. I just like seeing what that side of the force reads...most of these "news" sites I have never even heard of? I tend to look for sites that have news in the title ....then I go from there. Notice Art has not posted one article from "Fox News"? But that may be next?

Okay, here's an article about a Villanova professor, Glenn Bracey, who openly touts this. This radical leftism is commonplace within 'higher education' right now:

The historic roots of CRT that is being taught in U.S. schools.

And it's not just self-respecting whites who are rejecting this destructive garbage:

Voddie T. Baucham has a current Amazon bestseller ("Fault Lines") on how 'social justice' + Marxist CRT is *RAPIDLY* & permanently destroying every single western institution (church, school, govt.) He's left the U.S., & is back in his home country of Zambia right now.

Again these are not credible news sources.....

Purple, I'm so glad you're completely reliant on exactly what wiki tells you to trust, because I *personally* have made updates to wikipedia myself! And they have not banned me from doing so yet, because I always cite my sources! ; )

One funny thing happened w/ wiki, as they allow pretty much anyone to edit. Someone I know of (*not* me) was trying to meet a particular famous author, & wasn't on the invitation-only guest list, so she went to his wiki page, & edited it to mention that she was his half-sister. They had never heard of her, but checked w/ wiki, saw her name & let her into the event!

phydeaux994

a & a, you are just a plain ol’ ordinary Racist who hates anything or anyone that ain’t White and gives out all these whacko sources that you say are Gospel Truth. But that’s your Right. Peace.✌️😷

PurplePickles aka L&M

Art...what I'd tell you about your sources..very questionable...

The Gateway Pundit

QUESTIONABLE SOURCE

A questionable source exhibits one or more of the following: extreme bias, consistent promotion of propaganda/conspiracies, poor or no sourcing to credible information, a complete lack of transparency, and/or is fake news. Fake News is the deliberate attempt to publish hoaxes and/or disinformation for profit or influence (Learn More). Sources listed in the Questionable Category may be very untrustworthy and should be fact-checked on a per-article basis. See all Questionable sources.

Overall, we rate The Gateway Pundit Questionable based on extreme right-wing bias, promotion of conspiracies, and numerous instances of publishing false (fake) news.

NBCNEWS

LEFT-CENTER BIAS

These media sources have a slight to moderate liberal bias. They often publish factual information that utilizes loaded words (wording that attempts to influence an audience by using appeal to emotion or stereotypes) to favor liberal causes. These sources are generally trustworthy for information, but may require further investigation. See all Left-Center sources.

Overall, we rate NBC News Left-Center biased based on story selection and word choices that moderately favor the left and High for factual reporting due to proper sourcing and a reasonable fact check record.

Analysis / Bias

NBC News is what some call a mainstream media source. They typically publish/report factual news that uses moderately loaded words in headlines such as this: Trump threatens border security shutdown, GOP cool to idea. Story selection tends to favor the left through both wording and bias by omission where they underreport some news stories that are favorable to the right. NBC always sources its information to credible sources that are either low biased or high for factual reporting.

“ This radical leftism is commonplace within 'higher education' right now:”

On what basis does this assertion rest?

threecents

Real life is radically left of A&A.

shiftless88

A&A; I am assuming you have been supportive of tearing down the civil war statues and relics in the South, as well as the removal of their battle flag on other flags? Or is that "cancel culture"? I am so confused. I mean, the North fought for, battled, and WON! I find the sour grapes attitude of the south just so unbecoming.
