Critical Race Theory and Equity are very similar in their ideology and end results. Equity is not the same as equality. Equity is tied to the term social justice. Equity means equal outcomes, which is very different from equal opportunities. Social justice demands things be taken from individuals in one identity group and given to those in another in order to achieve equity. Individual achievement, character and responsibility do not matter.

Critical Race Theory Would Not Solve Racial Inequality: It Would Deepen It (PDF) by Christopher F. Rofo
“In simple terms, Critical Race Theory reformulates the old Marxist dichotomy of oppressor and oppressed, replacing the class categories of bourgeoisie and proletariat with the identity categories of White and Black.”
- Critical race theorists falsely accuse the United States of being a fundamentally racist nation and condemns capitalism, individual rights, and the Constitution.
- Critical race theory ignores evidence that shows that family structure, educational attainment, and workforce participation are the primary drivers of inequality.
- Critical race theory seeks to undermine the foundations of American society and replace the constitutional system with a near-totalitarian “antiracist” bureaucracy.
How to Push Back Against Critical Race Theory, IFA article by Nancy Huff, educator
“In education, teachers who teach CRT will view every subject through the lens of race, keeping in mind that one race is the oppressed and the other race is the oppressor. All existing thoughts on racial justice are to be challenged and altered to explain the struggles of the oppressed.”
How to Fight Critical Race Theory by Christopher F. Rofo
“Critical race theorists must be confronted with and forced to speak to the facts. Do they support public schools separating first-graders into groups of “oppressors” and “oppressed”? Do they support mandatory curricula teaching that “all white people play a part in perpetuating systemic racism”? Do they support public schools instructing white parents to become “white traitors” and advocate for “white abolition”? Do they want those who work in government to be required to undergo this kind of reeducation? How about managers and workers in corporate America? How about the men and women in our military? How about every one of us?”
- Critical Race Theory, the New Intolerance and Its Grip on America
CRT makes race the prism through which its proponents analyze all aspects of American life. CRT underpins identity politics, which reimagines the U.S. as a nation riven by groups, each with specific claims on victimization. CRT’s intolerance can be found in schools, the workplace, and the entertainment sector, “normalizing” belief in systemic racism for the average American.

Parents who have taken action and have successfully changed their school district’s policies can be an inspiration for us. We too can take a stand and speak out.
They organize their parents.
You are not alone. Parents can be hesitant to speak up; however, there is strength in numbers. Organize at the local level with parents with the same concerns you have.

The parents at Loudon County, Virginia, attracted media attention and were successful once they organized Parents Against Critical Theory (PACT)

They expose school administrators and school boards that promote CRT.
Review your children’s and grandchildren’s textbooks and assignments for evidence of CRT influence or ideology. Look for words such as “equity,” “bias,” “justice,” or “diversity.” Know the issue. Look for and speak up against the CRT curriculum that you identify. Bring your concerns to schools, to school boards, to local and state representatives.
- Parents speak out at school board meeting, call BLM ‘toxic,’ ‘poisonous’

- A school district tried to address racism, a group of parents fought back
After a year of virtual learning, parents are more aware of what their children are taught in school and take action.
They support those who publicly speak about the dangers of CRT.
Do you have board members, city council members and legislators that stand firm and speak out against the radical agendas? Lend them your support. If you have those who don’t, look for others to help get them removed from office and replace them with those who are against these detrimental agendas.
- More parents are speaking up about toxic Critical Race Theory in schools
While a lone person can make a public statement, with the support of parents, they can make an even greater impact.
- ‘It’s everywhere’: Parents group fights left-wing indoctrination in schools
They take the issue to the state level.
Engage with your representatives. See if you can be instrumental in helping shape policies through assisting legislators with good bills and speaking at committee meetings when those bills are addressed. Help others stay informed. See our Take Action Legislation section on the bills CPL targets. As support is gathered for specific bills, there is more likelihood that additional legislators will sign on to the bill and that those bills will get through the bill process to become law.
- Calling and writing their state congress members has resulted in states like Oklahoma, Florida, North Dakota, Tennessee, and Idaho banning CRT in their classrooms.
