Father Ian Rice has apparently had it with his son’s school’s supposed emphasis on critical race theory rather than a basic education based on math and science.
Rice, a black man, recently told the school board he serves where his daughter attends that his job is to teach the basics, not that “whites are bad.”
Rice’s speech has gone viral among conservatives. Look:

Rice: critical race theory used to ‘indoctrinate children to hate each other’
As he began his comments, Rice said it was clear that “this board and this school district are failing” based on comments made by other parents who preceded him.
The Daily Wire reported that Rice insisted that critical race theory “was never intended to be brought into elementary schools, nor into secondary schools.”
“It’s actually taught in the college atmosphere and, more importantly, in the legal part of the college atmosphere, looking at the different laws through the lens of race,” Rice said.

“The problem with taking it to the middle and elementary school level is that we don’t have the educators to adequately teach these kids,” Rice said.
Rice added: “Instead, they are using it as their own agenda to indoctrinate children to hate each other. And whether you believe that is true or not, the reality is that this is what is happening. “
Define critical race theory.

Rice: CRT means teaching your daughter that ‘her mother is evil’
Rice then emphasized how much damage critical race theory could do to her children, who are from a mixed family.
“Critical race theory is teaching that whites are bad,” Rice said.
“That’s not true,” he insisted. “That would teach my daughter that her mother is evil.”
Rice then described an altercation that she said happened to her daughter while she was at school.
According to him, a teacher took his daughter aside and said, “You are a minority, so you know that you should not get involved in certain things.”
“Nothing happened to educate her,” he said when the incident was reported to the school.
Rice said, “Instead, they brought my daughter in and ridiculed her.”
The progressive media and activist class can no longer ignore reasonable opposition to the CRT in K-12 schools when more “PoC” parents, like Mr. Ian Rice here, speak publicly.

Rice: ‘Your job is to teach them math and science’
He then outlined the division of labor in regards to what schools are supposed to do and what the role of parents is in raising children.
“So my question is, now, with the introduction of the Critical Theory of Race, what is your criteria for educating educators?” Rice asked.
“And who are you to educate my children, or any of our children, in matters of life?” Rice asked. “That is our job.”
“Your job is to teach them math and science,” Rice said to the board.
