Earlier this month, the Office of Management and Budget ordered all federal agencies to stop government training programs that reference “critical race theory” or “white privilege.”
These types of theories discussing “systemic racism” have been in “vogue” among academics and the progressive movement.
In his memo, OMB Director Russ Vought writes “It has come to the President’s attention that Executive Branch agencies have spent millions of taxpayer dollars to date ‘training’ government workers to believe divisive, anti-American propaganda…The President has directed me to ensure that federal agencies cease and desist from using taxpayer dollars to fund these divisive, un-American propaganda training sessions.” the memo adds.
Now, Biden running mate Kamala Harris is crying foul on the move.
During an event Tuesday, Harris was asked “On behalf of the Wayne State Black Student Union, we want to know that given that America is built on racism, sexism, and other evils, how will you as vice-president advocate, whether through policy or just through the powers that you know that you can advocate on, how will we resolve these injustices for the black community and specifically for black women?”
She replied “One of the biggest problems on the topic that you have raised is the failure to speak truth about America’s history with race.”
“Right now Donald Trump is trying to actually, you probably know this, Lieutenant Governor, tried to get rid of the training in the federal government on race, on specific aspects of race,” Harris continued.
“Literally trying to wipe out history. They’re saying, there are Senators and others who are saying that basically, essentially we should stop teaching the truth about racism in America,” she added.
