Conservative personality CJ Pearson, a self-described “hater of everything left,” challenged MSNBC host Joy Reid to a debate on Critical Race Theory (CRT).
Pearson was responding to a clip of Reed criticizing Florida Governor Ron DeSantis for rejecting an Advanced Placement (AP) course in African American Studies, which he believes is interfering with a political agenda in the studies.
Florida, under DeSantis, banned the teaching of CRT through the Stop Talk Act, which prohibits teaching students or employees concepts that suggest one race is more important than another or that one race is inherently racist.
Reid was clearly distraught by the news.
“Rejecting an advanced placement course in African American studies, which is ‘contrary to Florida law’ and, if you can believe it, ‘lacks significant educational value.’ Ron, we see you and we hear you,” Reed said during Monday’s broadcast, suggesting DeSantis was a racist.
“The law he’s referring to seems to be the Stop Voc Act, which basically gives DeSantis the power to downplay the very real racial history of our country, to appease those who look like Ron DeSantis,” he said, pretending that was nonsense. “Real History.”

If there was a national version of the Stop Talk Act preventing journalists from spreading racist propaganda, Joy Reid would be out of a job.
Everything she says – everything – is through the prism of false racial angles.
Pearson took aim, posting a clip of Joy Reid and challenging the debate in Critical Race Theory.
“This is patently false. Critical race theory is not black history; it’s black supremacy,” he shot back at the woke anchor.
“If you want to discuss this matter on the merits, I’d love to,” Pearson added. “My generation is tired of being the victim of coercion.”
.@JoyAnnReid – This is categorically false. Critical race theory is not black history; It is black supremacy.
If you want to discuss this matter on the merits, I’d love to.
My generation is tired of forced victims.

CRT = ‘Black Supremacy’?
Joy Reid engages in discussion what It’s possible that the FBI will eventually crack the case on whoever “hacked” her blog and posted the bigoted and homophobic messages.
Pearson is not alone in objecting to critical race theory, which focuses on slavery as the basis for a complete rewriting of American history.

“I want black kids to be totally empowered to know that they’re beautiful in their blackness, but I don’t have to make white kids feel bad about being white to do that,” Rice said.

“We teach the good and we teach the bad of history,” Rice added. “What we don’t do is make 7- and 10-year-olds think they’re somehow bad people because of the color of their skin.”
Former President Donald Trump represents perhaps the precursor to the Stop Walk Act.
He signed an executive order in September 2020 banning federal agencies, federal contractors and federal grant recipients from offering workplace blame-focused training, such as race stereotyping.
Trump took aim further when he announced his 1776 Commission, designed to promote patriotic education and push back against left-wing indoctrination efforts.

“Students at our universities are inundated with critical racial ideology,” Trump said at the time. “It is a Marxist theory that America is an evil and racist nation, that even small children are complicit in oppression, and that our entire society must be radically transformed.”
President Biden withdrew the executive order on his first day in the White House.

Pearson, meanwhile, has made a career out of discussing liberal messages.
She raised her public profile at a young age when, as a twelve-year-old, she posted a YouTube video criticizing Barack Obama for politicizing the shooting at Emmanuel AME Church in Charleston, South Carolina.
A few years ago, he caused a stir by challenging eco-nut Greta Thunberg to a debate on climate change after she was announced as Time magazine’s 2019 Person of the Year.
