Anyone who still can’t see the danger in promoting racial thinking in America’s schools — particularly of the sort that underlies critical race theory — should listen to Novalee.

In a video circulating this week, a 9-year-old Minnesota girl who refers to herself by that name lectures school-board members about how she normally doesn’t think about “the color of skin,” but the Black Lives Matter posters they put up in her school “make me think of it.”

The brave youngster also accuses the board of violating its own rules against politics in the schools by posting the signs, which send “a political message about getting rid of police officers, rioting, burning buildings down.” 

Yet for most Americans, it’s her description of how the board’s action is corrupting her normal tendency to judge people based on their character, rather than their race, that should hit home, especially as schools across America rush to adopt critical race theory.

“I do not judge people by the color of their skin” but “by the way they treat me,” explains Novalee. “I have Asian, Mexican, white, Chinese, black friends, and . . . I like them because some of them make me laugh, some are sweet and kind, sporty, or share the love of God. They are just my friends.”

CRT not only discourages such open-minded, inclusive thinking, it pushes whites to believe they are racist and blacks to feel oppressed. That’s not just an outrageously false portrayal of America but a prescription for driving the nation apart.

It shouldn’t take a 9-year-old to get adults to see that.
