West Virginia Lawmakers Introduce Bill to Ban Critical Race Theory Programs in Schools and in the Workplace

Last week GOP State Reps. (Riley Keaton, Josh Holstein, Trenton Barnhart, Johnnie Wamsley) in the deep-red state of West Virginia introduced legislation (Bill 2595) that would ban the teaching of critical race theory in schools and the workplace and that America is a fundamentally racist country. Below is the tweet.

“BREAKING: West Virginia lawmakers have introduced legislation to ban critical race theory programs throughout the state. The bill would ban the promotion of race essentialism, collective guilt, and race-based harassment. Our movement is growing—and we will win.”

First, it bans the teaching of Critical Race Theory in the workforce as the bill states, “It shall be the policy of the State of West Virginia not to promote race or sex-stereotyping or scapegoating in the workforce, and not to allow grant funds to be used for these purposes. In addition, state contractors will not be permitted to inculcate such views in their employees.”

It follows with a long section on the specifics of what the bill bans, “(1) one race or sex is inherently superior to another race or sex; (2) the United States is fundamentally racist or sexist; (3) an individual, by virtue of his or her race or sex, is inherently racist, sexist, or oppressive, whether consciously or unconsciously; (4) an individual should be discriminated against or receive adverse treatment solely or partly because of his or her race or sex; (5) members of one race or sex cannot and should not attempt to treat others without respect to race or sex; (6) an individual’s moral character is necessarily determined by his or her race or sex; (7) an individual, by virtue of his or her race or sex, bears responsibility for actions committed in the past by other members of the same race or sex; (8) any individual should feel discomfort, guilt, anguish, or any other form of psychological distress on account of his or her race or sex; or (9) meritocracy or traits such as a hard work ethic are racist or sexist, or were created by a particular race to oppress another race. The term “divisive concepts” also includes any other form of race or sex-stereotyping or any other form of race or sex scapegoating.”

As you can see it is aimed at preventing the teaching that White people are racist and all black people are oppressed.

In article two of the bill, it bans the use of Critical Race Theory in schools, “It shall be the policy of the State Board of Education of West Virginia not to promote race or sex-stereotyping or scapegoating in schools, and not to allow schools to use curriculum that promotes “divisive acts.”

Finally, it bans the state funding of agencies that promote this idea saying, “It shall be the policy of the State of West Virginia to prohibit state funding for state agencies who promote race or sex-stereotyping or scapegoating, and it shall be prohibited for any state funding to go towards West Virginia agencies who promote “divisive acts.”

Critical Race Theory is anti-white teaching in the eyes of many conservatives. It is good to see that West Virginia is taking steps to stop this from being indoctrinated to children and employees.
