Critical Race Theory: Illinois Teacher Sues District Over ‘Equity’ Push

Excerpts:

Illinois drama teacher Stacy Deemer sued the Evanston-Skokie School District (District 65) over its critical race theory training classes with ‘highly racial content that stereotypes White people.” The teacher claims the school is violating the Constitution.

The teacher brought the lawsuit under the Equal Protection Clause of the 14th Amendment and Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.

The lawsuit mentions how people confuse equity and equality:

5. Equity is very different than equality, although the two are sometimes confused. Equality is the principle proclaimed in the Declaration of Independence, defended in the Civil War, and codified into law through the Fourteenth and Fifteenth Amendments to the Constitution, the Civil Rights Act of 1964, and the Voting Rights Act of 1965. As District 65 itself has recognized, equality is about sameness and treating everyone in an identical manner regardless of their race. Equity is about so-called justice and individuals getting what they “need and deserve.” Said another way, equality strives for equal opportunity while equity strives for equal outcomes.

Superintendent Devon Horton already told teachers, “If you’re not antiracist, we can’t have you in front of our students.”

  1. Finally the battle lines are being clearly drawn. This is history repeating itself. Just as the Marxist, Socialist and Communists of the past began their fights against Democracy and Capitalism by dividing “workingmen” against themselves, today they have returned to divide us by race.

    Their battle is against our Constitution which starts with “We the people..” Will it be replaced with a Manifesto?
    We see the beginnings of a Manifesto here.

  2. Sorry for posting so much but it should be noted –
    The Pantagraph censors any mention of this on their comment site.
