(PresidentialWire.com)- The British government officially announced its opposition to the teaching of the made-up idea of white privilege and the dangerous Critical Race Theory in schools this week. During a debate about Black History Month in the House of Commons, the elected chamber of the British parliament, Black British Member of Parliament Kemi Badenoch laid out the government’s opposition to teaching far-left ideas as fact.
Badenoch, who is the Exchequer Secretary to the Treasury and Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Equalities, said that promoting Critical Race Theory is a “dangerous trend in race relations” and called it an “ideology that sees my blackness as victimhood and their whiteness as oppression.”
The Equalities Minister could not have been clearer:
Black Lives Matter and Critical Race Theory are political and do not belong in schools.

“I want to be absolutely clear that the Government stand unequivocally against Critical Race Theory,” Badenoch explained. “Some schools have decided to openly support the anti-capitalist Black Lives Matter group, often fully aware that they have a statutory duty to be politically impartial.”
The equalities minister then described how the Black Lives Matter movement is political and therefore cannot be taught in schools. She also laid out some examples of racism from within the movement.
“Of course black lives matter, but we know that the Black Lives Matter movement is political,” she said. “I know that because, at the height of the protests, I have been told of white Black Lives Matter protesters calling a black armed police officer guarding Downing Street, I apologize for saying this word, a ‘pet n*gger.’”
Badenoch said she would like to see members of the Opposition, which is the left-wing Labour Party, condemn the actions of the political BLM movement “instead of pretending that it is a completely wholesome anti-racist organization.”
The MP went on to say that the government does not want teachers telling white pupils about “white privilege and inherited racial guilt,” slamming it as “pernicious.”
“Any school that teaches those elements of Critical Race Theory as fact, or that promotes partisan political views such as defunding the police without offering a balanced treatment of opposing views, is breaking the law,” she added.
The surprise move from the British Conservative government, which is often criticized by its supporters for not being conservative enough, comes after President Donald Trump ordered that Critical Race Theory stop being taught at Federal Agencies.

President Trump’s move means that federal agencies can no longer force members of staff to sit through highly partisan and political “training” sessions that teach white people they are guilty of racism no matter what they say or do.
