In the midst of a national debate about critical race theory, a video of a father and his daughter speaking out against it has gone viral.
Kory Yeshua, a TikTok user, recorded a video of himself sitting next to his nameless daughter, telling her that she can be anything she wants to be.
While a gloomy music plays in the background, the girl states, “It doesn’t matter if you’re black or white or any hue.”
Yeshua routinely broadcasts conservative videos criticising Democratic policy, and he has stated that the BLM is out to “destroy America and destroy our families.”
“How we treat people is based on who they are, not what colour they are,” he tells his daughter in the popular video.
“And if they’re lovely and smart,” the girl adds.
Yeshua says, “This is how children think right now.” “Critical race theory seeks to put an end to this. It’s not going to happen with my children.”
Yeshua binds that CRT again when the girl assures the viewer they can make friends.
“We have to get rid of CRT,” he says. “Period,” says the narrator. To the point. Man, children don’t see skin tone. Everyone is loved by them.”
The video had had 26,000 views since it was released on TikTok on May 19, but it received 1.6 million views after Republican congressional candidate Robby Starbuck reposted it on Twitter.
CRT, which examines racism as a social construct, has been a divisive topic in education and politics, with some Republican-led states considering prohibiting its use in classrooms.
