Author and Speaker Kenny Xu on Wednesday’s Talk Back Program
Kenny Xu, author of ‘An Inconvenient Minority-The Attack on Asian American Excellence and the Fight for Meritocracy’ appeared on KGVO’s Talk Back show just minutes after finishing up with Glenn Beck and Fox News.
Xu spent the hour speaking about how Critical Race Theory can never accomplish the task of bringing true equality for minorities, and that the U.S. is the only hope for true reconciliation.
“People like to criticize color blindness and criticize race blindness, but they don't understand that if there was any country in the world that could possibly pull this off than it has to be America,” said Xu. “If America can't do it, then forget any other country. Forget any hope for Earth to be able to eventually treat people on the basis of just the content of their character and not the color of their skin.”
Xu recited from original documents the facts behind Critical Race Theory.
“Critical race theory is a movement among scholars, particularly scholars of color, that is critiquing American society through the lens of race that is finding racism within the structures and the laws of American society, no matter where they are,” he said.
Even though Racial Justice platforms have been officially adopted by the National Education Association, Xu said the public schools in New York City still have massive problems, despite all the money being spent per student.
“New York City spends $28,000 per child per year on their school system, and yet, there's still a big achievement gap, and black Americans in the New York City public school system are still not being proficient at their standardized math or reading tests,” he said. “Is that a problem based on racism? Or is that a problem based on the way the schools are organized, the way the teachers teach and the way that grades are inflated in these schools, and that there is a culture of anti excellence at the schools.”
Xu said America is at a very important point in its history to either succeed or fail in treating all its citizens equally.
“I believe that America is at a turning point,” he said. “I believe it's darkest before the dawn. This is why the race ideologues are so aggressive, because all of the trends are suggesting America is becoming more of a mixed society, and we are one of the most racially tolerant countries in the entire world, and so I wanted to align what America thinks with the reality, and then challenge the institutions that are promoting this racial ideology. That's why I started color us united.org.”
