Trump is defunding “Critical race theory”

On a Friday evening and as November looms, the White House has opened another front in the culture war.

At the direction of the president, the Office of Management and Budget is ordering all federal agencies to “cease and desist” any government training programs that include any reference to “critical race theory” or “white privilege,” RealClearPolitics has exclusively learned.

Taxpayer money will be pulled from federal workforce trainings that mention “critical race theory”, “white privilege”, and other “anti-American concepts”, according to Office of Management and Budget.

According to Encyclopedia Britannica, Critical race theory (CRT), the view that the law and legal institutions are inherently racist and that race itself, instead of being biologically grounded and natural, is a socially constructed concept that is used by white people to further their economic and political interests at the expense of people of colour.

According to critical race theory (CRT), racial inequality emerges from the social, economic, and legal differences that white people create between “races” to maintain elite white interests in labour markets and politics, giving rise to poverty and criminality in many minority communities.
