On this episode of The Federalist Radio Hour, Asra Nomani, VP for Strategy and Investigations for Parents Defending Education, joins Culture Editor Emily Jashinsky to discuss the proliferation of critical race theory in American schools and how parents from both the left and the right are banding together to stop it.

“It’s a theory. It’s a philosophy. It’s an ideology. It’s an approach that assumes that race is critical to every single element of society and that’s why you end up with this alphabet soup of weird buzzwords that they keep throwing around like the idea that it’s systemic racism that we have to dismantle,” Nomani said.

Identity politics, Nomani said, can be exploited by both political parties so it’s up to the concerned families to take action.

“We have to all stand up and just really refuse that kind of identity politics and really challenge it with moral courage in each of our communities because, you know, it’s shame that they use as a lever to silence us,” Nomani said.

“Do not allow their tactics of shame to silence you. Just remain dignified, live with grace, don’t ever stoop to their tactics of degradation of another human being because then we become what we’re trying to oppose. But stand strong against it,” she said.
