A senior at Pepperdine University slammed Critical Race Theory as “state-sponsored racial scapegoating” Monday on The Todd Starnes Show.
Spencer Lindquist, the president of Pepperdine University’s College Republicans, discussed a column he wrote in The Federalist, where he spotlights his introduction to CRT his freshman year at a Silicon Valley high school.
He, along with his multi-ethnic classmates, were lined up in a “racial shaming exercise” called a “privilege walk,” which asked students questions to gauge their white privilege.
Before long, the white students – specifically, white male students like Spencer– stood alone, the culprits of systemic racism.
“They doctored these questions to try and rig the outcome,” Lindquist told host Todd Starnes. “They did not ask the really important questions, like whether or not we would be discriminated against when we applied for college admission. It was a conclusion in search of evidence.”
The freshmen pushed back against the selective questioning, but his refusal to accept the controversial race theory had consequences that followed him until graduation. Lindquist, out of 1,800 students, was quickly placed into small, focus social justice and critical theory courses.
“They were essentially trying to reeducate me after I pushed back and I saw this throughout the rest of my high school career,” he said. “There was certainly a persistent, anti-white critical race theory lens that permeated our classroom discussions.”
He continued: “It didn’t feel right at first. I didn’t have any of the intellectual backing that was needed, but I understood that to go along with [critical race theory] would be to forfeit my own dignity, to forfeit my self-respect.”
