U.S. Representative Mark Green Introduces Bill to Block Critical Race Theory Training in U.S. Military Service Academies

 

U.S. House of RepresentativesWashington, D.C. – U.S. Representative Mark Green is introducing a bill to fight back against Critical Race Theory (CRT) training in U.S. Military Service Academies. 

Critical Race Theory is a school of thought that teaches America–and every American institution–is based on a foundation of racism, instead of upon the principles of equality, justice, and freedom.

Under pressure from the Pentagon, Service Academies have implemented Critical Race Theory initiatives ranging from mandatory diversity training to reading lists that include Ibram X. Kendi’s How to be an Antiracist. Some Service Academies have even gone as far as to add a Diversity and Inclusion minor.
