A black-led anti-woke group has denounced the “underlying premise of Critical Race Theory” (CRT) and said it plans “to educate the public” about the theory’s origins and its “harmful effects on students.”
“…In our lifetime, we have witnessed the decline of the American black family from approximately 80 percent two-parent families to 80 percent fatherless homes without one national initiative to reverse the trend.” — Kendall Qualls. https://t.co/QX6EZKyguP pic.twitter.com/CkbUYdhq9B

Minnesota-based TakeCharge, led by President Kendall Qualls, released a statement, sent to Breitbart News, following the news U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland has directed the FBI to mobilize against parents who oppose CRT in K-12 schools:
We at TakeCharge, continue to support the idea that the promise of America is obtainable by any citizen regardless of race or social standing. We are quite aware of past racial and demeaning policies that were sanctioned in the past. We also realize that racist people reside in the country. However, that does not mean that the country suffers from systemic racism – the United States today, is not the same country of 50 years ago. Today, children of color have vastly more opportunities to succeed in life than their parents and grandparents. Our goal is to help them achieve an independent and abundant life, free from government subsidies.
TakeCharge is igniting transformation within the black community by embracing the core principles of America – hard work, education, faith, family, and free enterprise in the personal pursuit of dreams that can be realized by anyone!https://t.co/LyLdrPXt5j pic.twitter.com/C6RD9VOjem

“We fully denounce the underlying premise of Critical Race Theory,” TakeCharge added, noting it does not “endorse, support or promote threatening comments of behavior to people with opposing views,” and intends to continue to promote its philosophy “peacefully and encourage others to follow our example.”
