During a full district school board meeting, a father from Illinois slammed the critical race theory. (CRT) Ty Smith, a father who argues critical race theory is seriously flawed, saying it gets kids to hate each other. He also pointed to himself as proof that the white man does not prevent Blacks from succeeding. His story is both inspiring and educational. He proves what you can do under the toughest circumstances.
He grew up without either parent but he did very well in school and he worked his way through college and received two medical degrees. I don’t care who you are. That’s an impressive story. But, what would have happened if he was taught CRT? If he bought into it he may never have gone to college because you were taught that the white man will prevent your success and as a result, you give up.
“How do I have two medical degrees if I’m sitting here oppressed?”
“No mom, no dad in the house. Worked my way through college, sat there, and hustled my butt off to get through college.”
“Not one white person ever came to me and said ‘well, son, you know you’ll never be able to get anywhere because the black people.’”
According to Faithwire, Smith, a black man, started his address by remembering a childhood incident in which he and other children on public assistance were pushed to be the last to eat lunch in elementary school. He got very upset as a third-grader with his buddies not in his group and decided to stop speaking to them. He learned as an adult that they were not to blame for their segregation.

“I’m mad at them for something that wasn’t even their fault… they weren’t looking down on me. They didn’t think they were better than me,” Smith argued.
“I’m the one that came up with those false perceptions of what my friends were. Not them,” Smith added.
He then went on to debunk the critical race theory ideas that white people have it better in life because they are white and those black people are oppressed because of white people, using his own personal experience as evidence that neither of these claims was accurate.
