(The Christian Post, 10/24/21) In a recent commentary, Ken Blackwell, former Ohio Treasurer and Secretary of State, says small victories are still victories and are worth celebrating. There are many Americans, of all races and ethnicities, who have come to realize just how much critical race theory has come to permeate our discourse and our dialogues and we are fighting back. We are reclaiming that most self-evident of truths — all men are created equal. Last week, the Ohio State Board of Education repealed an “anti-racism” resolution and replaced it with something far more meaningful. Gone was the language of division, blame, and condemnation; in its place was offered something more hopeful.
“As a native Ohioan and a former mayor of Cincinnati, it pains me to see how Critical Race Theory is used to both reframe our history, our conversations and even alter the courses of action we must take to improve the lives of all of our children.”
