Winsome Sears Pushes Back on CNN’s Bash: CRT Is Part of Virginia Curriculum

‘So, you know, it’s semantics, but it’s weaved in’
By Grabien Staff


SEARS: “No, no, it is part of the curriculum. It is weaved in and out of the curriculum. In fact in 2015, former governor, who was just defeated, McAuliffe, his state board of education had information on how to teach it, so it’s weaved in. So you know, it’s semantics, but it’s weaved in. What we want to say and what governor-elect Youngkin has said is that all of history must be taught, the good, the bad and the ugly because what we learn from history, Dana, is that we don’t learn from history and we continue to repeat the same mistakes. But while we’re talking about history, how about we talk about how people, from the 1890s, black people from the 1890s to about 1950 to 1960 according to the U.S. census marrying in a percentage that had far surpassed anything that whites had ever done. When we talk about the Tulsa race riots, let’s ask ourselves how did the black people amass so much wealth right after the Civil War, so that it could even be destroyed? How do they do that? You know, they were coming from nothing, from zero, some of them never even got the 40 acres and a mule. Let’s try to emulate that. The one thing that the slaves wanted, well, three top things, their freedom certainly, then the next thing was they wanted to find their families and the third thing was they wanted an education, and my God, when did education become a bad word among black people? No. We are going to have a good education system.”
