A new book is being introduced to some children’s school curricula across the nation and its message is not one of unity or acceptance, rather it teaches that “whiteness” is a privilege to be ashamed of that affords you “stolen land, stolen riches, and special favors.”
Woke teachers’ unions and school boards across the country are ignoring the concerns and rejection from parents and the well-being of their students as they force feed critical race theory to children across the nation.
The controversial book, “Not My Idea: A Book About Whiteness” by Anastasia Higginbotham, has been revered by The New York Times as “an honest explanation about how power and privilege factor into the lives of white children, at the expense of other groups, and how they can help seek justice.”
The book has been adopted across 30 public school districts in 15 states according to Christopher Rufo, a senior fellow at the Manhattan Institute.

For context, one illustration in the book features a person made from a $20 bill that appears to be on fire with a pointy tail, an extended hand, and a “Contract binding you to whiteness” in the other.
The contract states that you get: “stolen land, stolen riches, and special favors. Whiteness gets to mess endlessly with the lives of your friends, neighbors, loved ones, and all fellow humans of color (for the purpose of profit). Your soul. Sign below.”
SCOOP: At least 25 public school districts in 12 states are now teaching “Not My Idea,” a book that claims “whiteness” is the devil, luring children with the promise of “stolen land [and] stolen riches.”

An overwhelming majority of Americans do not agree that children should be taught critical race theory in school. A recent Harvard/Harris poll found that 61 percent of participants believe that children “should not be taught” that America is “structurally racist.” Unfortunately, it seems woke teachers’ unions and school boards won’t be dismayed.
Aside from teachers railing against the wishes of parents with CRT’s inclusion in lesson plans, critical race theory is problematic because it’s fundamentally wrong. CRT is known to cause racial divide and discrimination and many contend that employing these “lessons” will poison children with the idea that they are racist, should loathe themselves, and be ashamed of the color of their skin.
This implies a wildly outrageous moral code as children have no control over the color of their skin, but they do have control over how they treat others.
It also discounts any struggle experienced by blue-collar white Americans because their race outweighs their misfortune.
Many took to Twitter to rebuff the book and its’ teachings:
Are these classes mandatory or electives? Anyone else remember when Conservatives wanted to abolish the Dept of Ed, not utilize it to dictate federal curriculum standards.

So on the contract it says *for the purpose of profit*. Maybe I have to renegotiate my contract or something, but I’m really not that wealthy yet? Like, I’m just a lowly blue collar worker.
Can I speak to someone about this? I didn’t know I was eligible for stolen riches & land.

I really don’t know how anyone can look at this children’s book and not be outraged.

If I defined “blackness” as a system, then taught kids that blackness was of the devil, under the fig leaf that I don’t mean black ppl but “the system of blackness”. Would you be okay with that?

As a father of 3… thank you for keeping us informed! One of the 25 school districts listed here is in my own hometown.

This is the dangers of Critical Race Applied Principles (CRAP) They are filling the heads of kids with CRAP and making them hateful and growing a new generation of racists
