Jeff Jackson Says Critical Race Theory “Doesn’t Exist” | Beaufort County Now | Refuses to Answer Voter Concerns About His Party's Educational Priority

Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19)
Press Release:

    Charlotte — Democrat State Senator and US Senate Candidate Jeff Jackson was caught on video at a recent town hall saying that Critical Race Theory "doesn't exist," a comment that is in direct conflict with the far-left's attempts to infuse the radical concept into public education curriculums.

    The exchange came last Friday in Columbus when a voter asked Sen. Jackson where he stood on the theory. Instead of providing his position, Sen. Jackson said Critical Race Theory "doesn't exist" and that "it's literally not happening." Jackson's comments ignore the fact that members of his own party across the country have made it central to the Democrat party's approach to education.

    "Our schools should focus on education, not indoctrination," said US Senate Candidate and Former NC Governor Pat McCrory. "Jeff Jackson can't hide from the fact that his own supporters on the far-left want to indoctrinate our kids by telling them that America is a hateful, racist, evil country. I didn't let it happen as Governor and I won't let it happen as US Senator."

    This isn't the first time Jackson has dodged the question. Earlier in the campaign, he said that local education officials should decide if racially-charged curriculum should be included instead of stating his own beliefs on the topic. His Democrat primary opponents have yet to weigh in on Jackson's latest comments on Critical Race Theory.

    "The voters of North Carolina deserve to know where the candidates stand on teaching Critical Race Theory to our kids," McCrory said. "I'm against it and I'll fight it as a US Senator because identity politics used to divide us have to end, especially in our schools. Jeff Jackson needs to stop dodging and answer the question, along with Cheri Beasley and Erica Smith: do they agree with Critical Race Theory, and do they want it taught in our schools?"
