Republican Sen. Ted Cruz was pushing the envelope when he dared to ask President Joe Biden’s Supreme Court of the United States nominee about critical race theory and if babies can be racist, per an example he used in the video below. Her answer was very interesting.
This took place during At today’s Senate Judiciary Committee confirmation hearing for Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) asked whether she agrees with the book, “Antiracist Baby” by Dr. Ibrim X. Kendi, which is in the library at a school on whose board she sits.
Ted Cruz spent some time discussing critical race theory, a controversial topic for many Americans, a concept that many people want out of schools and not part of education.
Gov. Ron DeSantis, a Florida Republican, has often spoken out against it, going so far as to ban it from schools.
Back on December 15, 2021, DeSantis pushed legislative action and the follow statement was part of a post listed on the FLGOV website:
WILDWOOD, Fla. – Today, Governor Ron DeSantis announced the Stop the Wrongs to Our Kids and Employees (W.O.K.E.) Act, a legislative proposal that will give businesses, employees, children and families tools to fight back against woke indoctrination. The Stop W.O.K.E. Act will be the strongest legislation of its kind in the nation and will take on both corporate wokeness and Critical Race Theory. Today’s proposal builds on actions Governor DeSantis has already taken to ban Critical Race Theory and the New York Times’ 1619 project in Florida’s schools.

“In Florida we are taking a stand against the state-sanctioned racism that is critical race theory,” said Governor Ron DeSantis. “We won’t allow Florida tax dollars to be spent teaching kids to hate our country or to hate each other. We also have a responsibility to ensure that parents have the means to vindicate their rights when it comes to enforcing state standards. Finally, we must protect Florida workers against the hostile work environment that is created when large corporations force their employees to endure CRT-inspired ‘training’ and indoctrination.”
