Hello, I’m Tom Scott and I’m in a picture erasing black hostory.
Who’s holding the brush?
Our local high school just removed an AP History Class and a Psychology class because parents were concerned about critical race theory and the school board caved in to their demands to remove them.
They used the money to buy new football uniforms.
makes me think of the new candyman movie. there was a church that had iconic black art on in that got sold and they just panted the whole thing white. it fit with the movie, but it was a real church that actually did it.
The last time I talked to an old white guy who thought critical race theory wasn’t important, I asked him, as a veteran, does he believe that honorably discharged veterans deserve benefits?
He said yes.
Do they deserve benefits regardless of race, skin color, religion, or national origin?
He said yes.
Why had black veterans routinely been denied or otherwise unable to use benefits up through the Vietnam War?
To his credit, he didn’t try to argue that “actually, they weren’t” or make excuses. He just didn’t answer.

[Here](https://www.freep.com/story/entertainment/arts/2022/01/17/critical-race-theory-painting-brought-jonathan-harris-overnight-fame/6550013001/) is a story about him and this piece.
We were whitewashing the history before conservatives found a word to fear monger about it. For anyone that doesn’t know the history of Fred Hampton he was among the best Americans to ever live. That’s why he had to die.
Be aware that[ any racism](https://www.reddit.com/r/pics/wiki/rule8#wiki_racism.3A) will get you an immediate and permanent ban.
Please help us by reporting those comments so we can escort them from this sub.

I know its not, but it really does look like Tom Scott is doing the whitewashing.
“I am here, in the local museum, defacing art because- “
The one meme said it best; imagine your history is so horrible you want to ban people from learning it.
CRT is racist.
Also a critical race baiting post.
“Oh I’m not brave enough for politics.”
Why is Tom Scott painting over Harriett Tubman?
The idea that anyone is hiding any part of history is disconnected from reality. Anyone with internet access and the desire to learn about history can learn anything they want. No one is hiding or restricting access to information about history.
If we are talking about a place like China, where they literally wipe events from history to the point where the younger generations are completely unaware of what happened. Then I understand the desire to see access to historically relevant information being a topic of discussion or even anger. However, the US isn’t China. Anyone and everyone can access the information pertaining to the worst atrocities in U.S. history easily and freely. So why would anyone think otherwise? How is it possible that in a country where historical information is freely and easily accessible to everyone, do people think it’s not? Which part of the US is scrubbing the internet of historical information?
Haha the title doesn’t make sense at all. Critical theory approach for any subject is really stupid and scientifically invalid.
Why is Tom Scott doing this?
I’m a Canadian. We learn about Malcolm X, Harriet Tubman, MLK Jr, the underground Railway, transatlantic slavery, etc. Is this not taught in the US school system?
Can someone explain the relation of this artwork and CRT to me? The artwork seems like a direct opposite to CRT?
Interesting…i learned about all those people in the painting without critical race theory….
I don’t get it.
is the idea that Critical Race Theory is the whitewashing of black history?
The title implies CRT erases black history in the US? Im confused
I don’t get it.
Aunt Jemima and Uncle Ben are not happy either.
We’ve all had our race and racial history wiped away sadly. Once upon a time ago we believed in gods and did psychedelic mushrooms to connect with those gods and suddenly the greed of man started wiping these connections to our spiritual guides away through modern religion. We look at history now between all cultures and races and it’s written by the winners of history. Modern society doesn’t understand how important connectivity to our past truly is. The rituals and spiritual influences have long since been faded by the greed of man in religion, politics, and hate. In ancient societies we thrived on being together and unity and being one cohesive unit, that once again has fallen apart in time. We must look in ourselves and establish that the divide of beliefs and hate for groups of people, are the common enemy of man. No hate is justified. No hate is acceptable. Before casting hate, look into thy own self.
Is that Tom Scott in the picture?
CRT is something kids in school shouldn’t learn. It is better to learn diversity through life experience, not government controlled education.
Not sure how that picture represents critical race theory.
Critical erase theory
Critical race theory should just be history and we should learn about ALL American history, good AND bad. From native American history to African American history. Sad that ppl want to white wash history and spare their little snowflakes from learning about how their ancestors treated minorities in the past.
