No Critical Race Theory to See Here. Move Along Now.

Ibram Kendi

Ibram Kendi, the nation’s most highly acclaimed and in-demand interpreter of Critical Race Theory in America today, will be the keynote speaker at the Virginia Governor’s Housing Conference in November. His conference biography notes that he has authored several books about racism, including “How to Be an Antiracist,” “Antiracist Baby,” and “Stamped: Racism, Antiracism and You.”

Many conference topics have a social justice angle to them: closing the wealth gap, increasing minority homeownership, federal recognition of “sovereign nations,” ending youth homelessness, preventing evictions and foreclosures, and changes in Virginia Fair Housing Laws.

But, hey, at least it’s not CRT in the schools! — JAB

    Having seminars and training for educators is not the same as incorporating into the K-12 curriculum, and saying so is not only a lie but this is how Conservatives seem to want to do politics these days.

    Lying, misinformation, disinformation and conspiracy theories have become the “go to” for Conservatives and the GOP to pander to their base on a number of issues…

    It will work for their base and perhaps some independents but in the end, people are going to recognize the lies.

    The reference to “sovereign nations” must be presumed to apply to those Native American organizations that are so designated under the Constitution and federal law. The quotation marks suggest something less than a verifiable reality. The historical record of the broken promises and treaties and persecution (Trail of Tears) by the European newcomer colonists has not been challenged. For this reason, the topic is timely and welcome. No need for quotation marks or other coded insinuations.

      Sovereignty is the power of a state to do everything necessary to govern itself, such as making, executing, and applying laws; imposing and collecting taxes; making war and peace; and forming treaties or engaging in commerce with foreign nations.

      Neither the individual US states nor the Indian Reservations within the United States are sovereign nations in the same sense that Canada is a sovereign nation.

      The quotation marks are legitimate to distinguish between the Native American organizations and fully sovereign nations such as Denmark.

        ” Sovereign is a title which can be applied to the highest leader in various categories. The word is borrowed from Old French souverain, which is ultimately derived from the Latin word superānus, meaning “above”.

        The roles of a sovereign vary from monarch or head of state to head of municipal government or head of a chivalric order. As a result, the word sovereign has more recently also come to mean independence or autonomy’

          In the context of, say, a king you are right. In the context of a country, you are wrong. The term “sovereign nation” has an accepted meaning that does not apply to Indian reservations or, as another example, the Commonwealth of Virginia.

            I’m not sure of the context or intended context to be honest, and sometimes that’s on purpose …

            But I’ll accept the idea that countries are sovereigns and entities below that are not – including individuals.

            You can’t be one by claiming you are – despite the fact that we have wackadoodles all over the place claiming similar idiocy.

          2. Yes. When associated with a king, sovereign is a noun.

            When describing a nation, sovereign is an adjective.


            sovereign –

            noun – a supreme ruler, especially a monarch.

            adjective – possessing supreme or ultimate power.


            “Sovereign” is also the name of an old British coin…
