Fox News host Tucker Carlson on Tuesday called for cameras to be installed in classrooms to monitor for teaching of critical race theory.

The suggestion was a new step in a sustained campaign by Carlson and other conservative figures against critical race theory.

The way the academic discipline, which seeks to analyse systemic racism, is taught is classrooms has become a new front in the culture   wars raging between conservatives and progressives.


On his show, Carlson said: "The overwhelming majority of Americans - and pollsters have found this pretty clearly - think this is insane," Carlson said.


"They think you should judge people by what they do, not on the basis of their skin color."

"We can't really be sure until we finally get cameras in the classroom, as we put them on the chests of police officers, until we finally get a civilian review board in every town in America to oversee the people teaching your children, forming their minds. And let's hope we get both of those very soon. But until we do, we can't know exactly how widespread this is."

In recent years, elements of critical race theory have been taught in classrooms, which advocates say helps educate pupils about pervasive racist attitudes and the long history of racist oppression in the US.

Some Republicans say the discipline is divisive, and seeks to indoctrinate children with a partisan view of US history. In typically hyperbolic terms, Carlson on Tuesday called the subject a "civilization-ending poison."

Republicans also see political benefit in the controversy, with   Trump allies telling Politico recently   that focusing on the issue could help them win back centrist Republican voters.

Republicans at national, state and local level are seeking to stop education systems emphasizing critical race theory.

Critics of the bills say   that critical race theory is in fact not taught   in most schools, and that the Republican pushback is a broad attempt to suppress discussion of structural racism.

Carlson in his remarks Tuesday acknowledged that he did not know "exactly how widespread this is", which he said was another reason to install the cameras.

From the supporting article in 1

Kimberlé Crenshaw, a founding critical race theorist and Columbia Law School professor, said the concept of critical race theory is being misrepresented and used as a political tool.

Critical race theory, she said, is a discipline that seeks to understand how racism has shaped U.S. laws and how those laws have continued to impact the lives of non-white people.

"The law has played a substantially significant role in establishing what race and racism actually are in American society," Crenshaw said, pointing to the effect laws have had on Black people specifically. "We can never forget that slavery was perfectly legal and constitutionally protected. ... Law has played a mixed role in our history. It has enslaved us. It has justified disenfranchising us. It has justified segregating us. It has justified marginalizing us, criminalizing us."

What is critical race theory?

Academic experts, including Crenshaw, say critical race theory is not what is being taught in K-12 education curriculums.

Critical race theory is a study in academia based on the concepts of systemic and institutional racism.  Systemic racism  refers to how the government has discriminated against Black, Indigenous and other people of color through unjust policies concerning housing, employment, criminal justice, education and more.

Fox News' campaign against critical race theory   shows no signs of abetting, as the network mentioned it more than 100 different times in less than a day on Tuesday.

According to   The Daily Beast's Justin Baragona  , Fox on Tuesday mentioned critical race theory a whopping 123 times on Tuesday as of 2 p.m. ET.

"Fox News is really going over the top with critical race theory outrage today, largely due to a teachers union saying it will push back against groups targeting teachers with anti-CRT rhetoric," Baragona comments.

There is no value in indoctrinating children with false information. The course should be elective only.

What would be a better solution than cameras to keep the teachers honest would be to have parents sit in on the classrooms as observers.

Outraged parents all over the country will not go away nor shut up on this issue
