We wish this would have happened in the United States, but we’ll take what we can get. Conservative Member of Parliament Kemi Badenoch laid out the case against teaching critical race theory in schools and also called out Black Lives Matter as a political organization that can be pretty selective in determining which black lives matter.
The Equalities Minister could not have been clearer:
Black Lives Matter and Critical Race Theory are political and do not belong in schools.
Teaching ideas such as 'white privilege' as a factual reality is breaking the law! ??? pic.twitter.com/6VoIDVJxLi

The British fight back against Critical Race Theory is hugely important. On both sides of the Atlantic conservatives are confronting the far left's destructive ideology that seeks to sow division and conflict within our great nations. https://t.co/7LOe6131ad

This is what we've been waiting for, a voice of reason in the commons from the Equalities minister.

I bet a lot of the opposition had their heads down looking at the floor when she said this

Some one speaking sense for a change, I hope all schools and teachers get to hear this.

I’ve loved Kemi Badenoch since she first appeared as an MP & what a relief to see someone say this aloud, let alone the Equalities Minister?

Fantastic stuff from @KemiBadenoch today. I am hoping this will embolden many others in public life to condemn the poison of Critical Race Theory. The fight back begins!

That was well spoken and clear as a bell.
Should be circulated more widely.

At last categorical guidance for schools: sensible and unifying.
Great speech from a great Briton.

Well said, my daughter has told me today they are discussing this in class. Fuming. The headmaster will be getting a letter asking him where in the school curriculum is the BLM section because I cant find it on there.

I want to like and retweet this more than once. What a beautiful thing to hear.

It’s so refreshing. She so eloquently said what was needed. Bravo

I'm so hoping this is a turning point, but…

She is perfect.

Absolutely spot on, but it needs to be tackled in universities as well because that is where the most damage from this divisive ideology is done.

This is absolutely wonderful. Can she emigrate to the US?! And very pleasantly surprised to see that the Johnson government is so strong on this.

Thank god for critical thinking as opposed to critical race theory and the guts to stand up for it in the face of progressive protests.

She said in under two minutes more than Ibram X. Kendi has in his latest book.
Good: President Trump’s executive order abolishing critical race theory has the potential ‘to cripple hundreds of academic projects’ https://t.co/kmpNSSHnKO
