The UK’s Women and Equalities Minister Kemi Badenoch, a member of the Conservative Party, delivered a strong condemnation of the Black Lives Matter movement and critical race theory on the floor of the House of Commons — saying such ideologies have no place in British schools. . .
“What we are against is the teaching of contested political ideas as if they are accepted fact,” Badenoch explained. “We don’t do this with communism, we don’t do this with socialism, we don’t do it with capitalism — and I want to speak about a dangerous trend in race relations that has come far too close to home to my life, and it’s the promotion of Critical Race Theory, an ideology that sees my blackness as victimhood and their whiteness as oppression.”
“I want to absolutely clear,” she continued. “This government stand unequivocally against Critical Race Theory.”
Badenoch then went after BLM, saying, “Some schools have decided to openly support the anti-capitalist Black Lives Matter group, often fully aware that they have a statutory duty to be politically impartial.”
“Black lives do matter, of course they do,” the minister said. “But we know that the Black Lives Matter movement — capital B.L.M. — is political. I know this, because at the height of the protests, I have been told of white Black Lives Matter protesters calling — and I’m afraid … I apologize for saying this word — calling a black armed police officer guarding downing street a ‘pet n*****.
The Equalities Minister could not have been clearer:
Black Lives Matter and Critical Race Theory are political and do not belong in schools.
Teaching ideas such as 'white privilege' as a factual reality is breaking the law! 🚫👨🏫 pic.twitter.com/6VoIDVJxLi
