A teacher and a student in Virginia got into an argument over the teacher’s Critical Race Theory curriculum after the student refused to point out racial differences between two people of different ethnicities.
During a virtual lecture, the Loudoun County Public Schools teacher presented the students with a picture displaying a white woman and a black woman, and asked the students to “tell me what this seems to be a picture of.”
“It’s just two people chilling,” a student replied, according to a video obtained by the Daily Caller.
The teacher was audibly frustrated with the student’s answer. He told the student that he was being “intentionally coy” and complained to him, “I don’t know why you do this.”
What the teacher wanted the student to see was that there were women of “two different races” in the picture.
“Well, at the end of the day, wouldn’t that just be feeding into the problem of looking at race instead of just acknowledging them as two normal people?” the student pointed out.
“No, it’s not,” the teacher replied. “Because you can’t not look at...you can’t look at the people and not acknowledge that there are racial differences.”
According to Britannica, Critical Race Theory is "the view that the law and legal institutions are inherently racist and that race itself, instead of being biologically grounded and natural, is a socially constructed concept that is used by white people to further their economic and political interests at the expense of people of colour."
Loudoun County Public Schools has denied teaching Critical Race Theory in class.
