Local schools are teaching Critical Race Theory. They get around it by using the principles of CRT without calling it teaching Critical Race Theory. They might call it anti-racism, white supremacy, Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion, or White Privilege.
Any program that uses race as a qualifier for generalization about a group of people based on the color of their skin is CRT. If you speak to a School Board, use “teaching principles of CRT” instead of telling them they are teaching CRT.
Large majorities of Americans still believe in judging individuals on the content of their character instead of the color of their skin. This is a losing issue for the current bunch of indoctrinators: https://www.americanexperiment.org/survey-says-americans-oppose-critical-race-theory/
Children have very close to a zero chance of dying from COVID. In McLean County no one under 20 has died. The below is from Pfizer’s website. Parents have to decide if the possible harm to your child by getting the vaccine is worse than getting COVID.
Read the statement in BOLD below. Clinical trials are still going on. Do you want your child experimented on?
Side effects reported with the vaccine include:
- There is a remote chance that the vaccine could cause a severe allergic reaction
- A severe allergic reaction would usually occur within a few minutes to one hour after getting a dose of the vaccine. For this reason, vaccination providers may ask individuals to stay at the place where they received the vaccine for monitoring after vaccination
- Signs of a severe allergic reaction can include difficulty breathing, swelling of the face and throat, a fast heartbeat, a bad rash all over the body, dizziness, and weakness
- If an individual experiences a severe allergic reaction, they should call 9-1-1 or go to the nearest hospital
- Myocarditis (inflammation of the heart muscle) and pericarditis (inflammation of the lining outside the heart) have occurred in some people who have received the vaccine. In most of these people, symptoms began within a few days following receipt of the second dose of the vaccine. The chance of having this occur is very low. Individuals should seek medical attention right away if they have any of the following symptoms after receiving the vaccine:
- chest pain
- shortness of breath
- feelings of having a fast-beating, fluttering, or pounding heart
- Side effects that have been reported with the vaccine include:
- severe allergic reactions; non-severe allergic reactions such as rash, itching, hives, or swelling of the face; myocarditis (inflammation of the heart muscle); pericarditis (inflammation of the lining outside the heart); injection site pain; tiredness; headache; muscle pain; chills; joint pain; fever; injection site swelling; injection site redness; nausea; feeling unwell; swollen lymph nodes (lymphadenopathy); diarrhea; vomiting; arm pain
- These may not be all the possible side effects of the vaccine. Serious and unexpected side effects may occur. The vaccine is still being studied in clinical trials. Call the vaccination provider or healthcare provider about bothersome side effects or side effects that do not go away.
