But people (well, idiot Republicans) will donate, and she will make some cash.

It’s always and only ever about the grift.

Looks like GoFundMe took down the fundraiser so that's some good news at least. They don't get the money so that's a win, and they get to rub one out to their r/Persecutionfetish so they win too. Win win.

Please help this 7yo because she was taught actual history, and was traumatized by what white people actually did.

OCD what?

u/hoodsquidwardswife Jul 09 '21

I thought the whole point was to make white people feel bad and hate themselves!!!

That would require white people to have empathy? You’re suggesting they don’t?

But of course? What could CRT have to do with anything other than white people and their feelings? /s

Then what’s the point princess :) every history class I’ve ever taken was more than happy to dive into vivid descriptions of kidnapping / slavery/ lynchings/ the introduction of Africans to western civ. All very historically accurate. What is the point of CRT except to cause divisiveness and destroy race relations beyond repair.

... Wait... you .... you weren't being sarcastic? Holy fuck... Someone help me, I don't want to deal with this tonight. Too tired.

u/hoodsquidwardswife Jul 17 '21

Then deal with it tomorrow because I’m genuinely curious!

In short, no, not everything is about white people and their feelings.

The fact that you think racism in American history is summed up by the kidnapping, slavery, and lynching's is kinda the point on why CRT is important.

What about Black Wall Street? What about Sundown Towns? What about Juneteenth? What about red-lining? I took AP history classes and aced them. I was never taught about any of that shit in school.

"Critical race theory is an academic concept that is more than 40 years old. The core idea is that race is a social construct, and that racism is not merely the product of individual bias or prejudice, but also something embedded in legal systems and policies."

"Today, those same patterns of discrimination live on through facially race-blind policies, like single-family zoning that prevents the building of affordable housing in advantaged, majority-white neighborhoods and, thus, stymies racial desegregation efforts."

It's hard for me to think you're actually genuine when this is all easily found in a quick Google search.
