Seth Meyers hits Glenn Youngkin with a super cut ‘Critical Race Theory’

Although critical racial theory is not part of the K-12 public school curriculum, Youngkin took this theme and continued it, embracing the issue of culture war fueled by conservatives and the right-wing media. He pledged to ban the teaching of this in public schools.

Critical Race Theory is an academic framework, usually taught in universities, which is based on the idea that racism is embedded in American institutions, creating persistent systemic inequalities for people of color. Conservatives often confuse it with any racist doctrine in US history and accuse Democrats of trying to teach this to schoolchildren.

After broadcasting a montage to Late Night, where Yangkin alluded to critical race theory many times during his campaign, Meyers remarked, “He said it so many times that one would think he was trying to evoke it in Beetlejuice style.”

“Maybe I’ve heard the urban legend that if you say a critical theory of race three times in the mirror, your 14-year-old will ‘wake up’,” added Meyers. “Thus, Fox News Republicans have successfully fanned the panic over the so-called critical racial theory. But I’m sorry, but teaching children about the history of racism in American society should not be radical. ”
