A Mississippi state fair becomes the water cooler for the conversation about Critical Race Theory being the guidepost for American public school courses to be based upon. The Governor of Mississippi used a state fair platform to declare Critical Race Theory will not be taught in their public schools.
In this instance, perhaps the Governor was merely whipping up his own crowds as the Governor later admitted he was not aware of any school in Mississippi teaching Critical Race Theory, but still, these are parts of the ripples of relying on revenge-based ideologies to create and hold your power, your target fights back, and they end up using many of the same tactics on you that you have been using on them.
It should be noted, the Governor is given sufficient justification for his assumptions when you realize you are reading a Chinese Communist Part approved publication, the China Post, so if China defends Critical Race Theory, shouldn’t you as well?
China Post, legally the China Post Group Corporation, is the state-owned enterprise operating the official postal service of China, which provides the service in mainland China, excluding its special administrative regions, Hong Kong and Macau, which have their own postal service independent of the mainland’s.

Mississippi Gov. Tate Reeves and House Speaker Philip Gunn each stood on stage at the Neshoba County Fair last week and pledged to prevent schools from teaching critical race theory, even though there’s no evidence of concerted efforts to make that part of the K-12 curriculum.
Critical race theory is an academic framework that examines how racism has shaped public policy and institutions such as the legal system, and how those have perpetuated the dominance of white people in society.
Given the amount of attention the topic has received in several Republican-led states the past few months, it was a predicable that at least one Mississippi politician would talk about it during speeches at the Neshoba County Fair, where audiences tend to be mostly white and conservative.
“In what world are we living in where it’s OK to teach children that they’re born racist?” Reeves said. “In what world is it OK to teach children that they’ll be judged by the color of their skin, not by the content of their character?
