Awhile ago, Twitter Class began slightly differently than usual.
Instead of me ripping into the conservative camp with a fire lesson, a fellow Beloved tagged me in a comment, responding to this tweet below:
Prior to this tweet, I came across this 2nd one from Chloe S. Valdary, the Founder of Theory of Enchantment.
Neither one of these women are a part of the conservative space. And I can't imagine them wanting to join considering how much Conservatives trash Black Culture and Black Excellence so much.
But I want to highlight an important point, which Beloved Conservatives must notice: Not all Black people subscribe to the oppressive content coming from Critical Race Theory.
In fact, many Black intellectuals are pushing against it, because Black people overall do NOT ascribe to Marxism.
I know your favorite, low-IQ Conservative pundits tell you Black people only want free stuff, government overreach, and full-blown Marxism.
But truth is staring the conservative base right in the face.
For months now, I have been preaching why banning knowledge -- no matter how euphemistically you paint the word "ban" -- is NOT the solution to winning this ideological battle.
But the beta boys in mainstream conservative politics will have you thinking otherwise. Now they are using CRT to market their own campaigns by promising the base something they canNOT deliver. Here's an example of what I mean:
I can hear the thoughts now: But, Felecia, what if he and other candidates CAN deliver? Then our kids won't have to worry about CRT.
And my response to that is this:
Are you crazy? Are you insane? When has repeating the same losing tactic ever worked? Y'all couldn't even ban Darwinism in our schools, and that teaches children we came from monkeys!
Do you honestly think you can keep your children from being exposed to ANY theory that addresses race? You cannot stop this, just like you couldn't stop the Evolutionary Theory from infiltrating the schools.
Beloved, think about what is happening to your generation right now. Conservatives are getting SLAUGHTERED in this political battlefield because their parents taught them the "Colorblind Theory" alongside their "Lost Cause" American History.
Now, you can't even win the political race topics because your ancestors taught you to ignore it.
So, do you honestly think you can keep your children from being exposed to the Critical Race Theory of today? With all the social media we have, do you think you can shield them from this? As more of the babies watch police officers kill unarmed Black men without due process, do you HONESTLY think you can stop your children from being exposed to a theory that addresses racism?
The answer is a resounding NO! And any conservative candidate, like this conniving Vernon Jones, who tells you they can "prohibit" (aka BAN) CRT from educational schools is LYING to get your conservative dollars.
As with all things, whenever I push against the talking points or the losing strategies, I provide an immediate solution so we can win.
And that solution is to COMPETE! In other words, if they want to push CRT in the schools, then say, "Cool! I will see your CRT and raise you Theory of Enchantment."
Push back with a VIABLE solution that provides your children CHOICES in this intellectual fight. Do not prohibit, especially when you have not filled the void.
Stop running from this battlefield and get ON IT with a COMPETING force that pulls its theory from a background based on spiritual laws.
Today, there are Black women from both sides telling corporations and the general public how dangerous CRT is to one's psyche. But these women aren't simply complaining like the conservative beta males.
They actually CREATED a counter curriculum or message to COMPETE with this modern version of CRT.
So, what should Conservatives do with this awareness?
Just as Sonnie and I preached for YEARS to make allies with Black men, who are focused on economic empowerment, I am telling Beloveds to make allies with Black women.
Our focus is on the social aspect, including how our children are being raised and the educational opportunities made available to them. We use our economics to support local empowerment, especially as it relates to educational development.
No Black mother wants her child to endure oppression. And CRT pushes victimization and oppression in the worst way by attacking a child's psyche. But neither are we telling government to BAN knowledge like we see on the conservative side.
We don't ban. We compete!
Black women are showing up with educational solutions and new curriculum based in humanity, compassion, love, understanding, and AUTHENTIC AMERICAN HISTORY.
Beloveds, you have me and Sonnie on your side presenting these solutions.
So, don't sleep on these Black female voices who are pushing back. Don't sleep on the work we're accomplishing. And don't IGNORE Black women who provide solutions simply because they refuse to be promoted on your conservative media outlets.
Solutions are here. Opportunities to make allies are present.
