Kory Yeshua, the dad in the father-daughter gone-viral TikTok video that presented a unifying and heartwarming message as a counterpoint to divisive critical race theory, appeared on national TV this morning to explain what inspired him to send the powerful social media message.
In America, an immutable characteristic is irrelevant to success, overcoming obstacles, or forming friendships, he reaffirmed on the Fox News Channel.
“I’ve just seen a lot of things that are going on in America right now, a lot of things going on in the world. I see the agenda being pushed on our children, and they’re trying to teach our children to look at each other, not from who they are as a person, but for their skin color,” he explained alongside daughter Royalty, 6, on Fox & Friends about the far-left, CRT indoctrination agenda that gained such currency in the educational setting and which bizarrely tries to divide innocent children into oppressors and oppressed in the name of diversity and inclusion.
“I just decided I wanted to get out there and show the world what I teach my daughter and the values that I try to instill in her and that’s to see people for who they are, for the content of their character and not the color of their skin,” California-based Yeshua, who has a background in the music industry, told co-host Ainsley Earhardt in the interview embedded below in two parts.

Kory also revealed that his daughter’s school recently played a video in class about racial segregation in the south during the Jim Crow era.
“I didn’t think she was ready for heavy things like Jim Crow and things like that yet, so I had to speak to it with her after that. And we had a conversation. And that’s actually what led up to coming out and speaking to her about things like that.”
Yeshua admitted to being overwhelmed with the positive response to the TikTok video, including more followers (in what some might consider an early Father’s Day present), but the conservative-leaning social media influencer accentuated the big picture.
“The main thing that I want to get out there is that I want little white kids to know that they are not oppressors, I want little black kids to know that they are not oppressed. And they can do anything that they want to do, anything they put their mind to. They can overcome any obstacle; your skin color does not matter.”
Yeshua also alluded to tragic issues involving family and friends that also led to him gravitating toward social media.
“I see what’s going on in our communities, and I hate it…and I know that most of them have been Democrat-run for decades. And I also hate that. And I want to wake people up to what’s going on.
“So, that’s one of the biggest things that inspired me to get and come out…I think we need to understand our past, but I don’t think we need to be held back by it. I also think we need to start telling the truth about who did what in our past,” he concluded.
