A 15-year-old student from Rosemount High School in Rosemount Minnesota slams the school board over the teaching of critical race theory in the classroom.
We have been hearing stories all across the country about how CRT is being pushed on children of nearly all ages. From the time they are young, children are taught these backward teachings that are racist in and of themselves.
CRT pushes the victim and oppressor mindset on children essentially stating that white children are the oppressor and all other minorities are the victims.
Well, this one student just wasn’t having any more of the critical racism training that was taking place in his school.
This video has gone viral! Since being posted on June 17th it has amassed over 500,000 views and continues to grow.
The Western Journal reports:
You probably haven’t heard of Brad Taylor before. My guess is that this might not be the last time you hear his name.
The 15-year-old Taylor is — or rather, was — a student at Rosemount High School in Rosemount, Minnesota. He’s decided to leave the district, telling the Minnesota-centric conservative news outlet Alpha News that “it wasn’t a healthy environment for any student to be in” due to the encroachment of critical race theory.
However, before he left, he decided to give the school board in Minnesota Independent School District 196 a piece of his mind. It’s now going viral after being posted to YouTube by the Daily Caller, with over 500,000 views as of Tuesday morning. That’s more than 125,000 per day since it was posted Friday.
In the speech, Taylor criticized the school for promoting a “leftist agenda in class” and said the district’s “schools are quickly becoming a place where promoting activism is actually more important than promoting education.”
Taylor began by going back to the fall, his first day of his freshman year at Rosemount High School, and recounting how “the principal came out and gave us a heartfelt speech about equality and standing together.”
The principal, he said, listed various races while “expressing how much they matter and how important they are.”
“But never once did he mention an identity that reflects me or half the kids that were in the class.”
There was a bit of what the kids might like to characterize as a “sick burn” next — with Taylor noting to the board members, “I know you haven’t been to school in a while and I know most of you don’t have any kids left in the school district.” Apparently, those who make the rules in District 196 don’t necessarily have any skin in the game and, one might guess, are more motivated by political than parental concerns.
“You must admit how uncomfortable it will be to be characterized just by your skin color on the first day of school and be thought that you were wrong just because of your skin color,” Taylor continued. “I’ll never forget the look one of my friends gave me from across the room as we were sitting there listening to this blatant bias being expressed in the so-called equity statement by the leader of our school.
“To be clear, I don’t need you to tell me that I matter, but hearing the condolences given to other races and leaving just one race out, inevitably you’ll start to feel like you’ve done something wrong,” he added. “In our principal’s attempt to unify us, he instead created unwarranted boundaries and barriers between his students, pitting us against each other based on characteristics that we can’t control.”
In his speech, Taylor told the board he didn’t just hear from other students who felt pressured to conform to a certain viewpoint in order to secure a good grade. He said he was also approached by teachers who told him they agreed with his views but couldn’t express that because they feared retaliation from the district.
“There is clearly only one way to think in this district,” Taylor said.
We need more young people like Taylor here who are willing to be the whistleblowers of today. Young people who are willing to speak truth to power.
These school boards have been taken over by the teacher’s unions and they are using them to push their political ideologies on the future leaders of tomorrow.
Alpha News also covered this story:
Minnesota teen and ninth-grade student at Rosemount High School Brad Taylor went viral last week for his five-minute speech to the District 196 School Board speaking out against liberal indoctrination in the classroom.
Taylor spoke under the special communications request portion of the June 14 meeting. His video has gained over 385,000 views on YouTube, as it was posted by The Daily Caller. The video was also shared on Louder with Crowder, Garage Logic, and The Blaze.
It had been a long first year of high school for Taylor, who cited numerous attempts by administration to “to unify [students but] instead created unwarranted boundaries and barriers between students, pitting us against each other based on characteristics that we can’t control.” He added that “you must admit how uncomfortable it will be to be characterized just by your skin color on the first day of school and be thought that you were wrong just because of your skin color.”
Alpha News spoke with Taylor, who said that his decision to leave Rosemount High School after this last year was because “it wasn’t a healthy environment for any student to be in” anymore. Since last week, Taylor and his mother, Tiffany Taylor, have received “lots of messages from other [District] 196 parents who are also concerned about their kids” and are seeking their consultation.
“The problem is these school districts are acting like some of us are guilty for just existing, and somehow inadvertently responsible for any injustice [and] from what I saw, it made all the kids who have been in RHS feel uncomfortable and tense,” Taylor told Alpha News, adding that his peers “are afraid to say or do the wrong thing” for fear of being labeled as an “intolerant racist.”
It’s one thing to push the racism nonsense on adults. It’s entirely different when teachers are creating an environment in the classroom that fosters actual racism.
It has been reported that in some classrooms teachers have actually segregated the room placing white children on one side of the room and non-white children on the other side of the room.
If that’s not racism then I don’t know what is.
Minnesota teen Brad Taylor, a 9th grade student at Rosemount High School, spoke at the District 196 School Board hearing about why he is leaving.
Whether or not this is *ackshually* CRT disregards the cold hard fact of how it's applied: sowing racial division & discrimination. https://t.co/7iYhLewR0w
