A Virginia mother says her 13-year-old son has changed since he learned about critical race theory, and now, she’s suing the school.
In an interview with “Jesse Watters Primetime,” Melinda Riley said she never had a problem with her son before Albemarle School District introduced him to its “anti-racism” policy. Because of this information, Riley says her son is now identified as Black.
We had no problems before. He is in eighth grade. He’s seeing himself as just a black man. He’s viewing things that aren’t his way as racist, and he’s looking for safety in numbers.
She also said that her son sees the world in a “negative” way, and that he is “locked in a box”.
Riley expressed that when he was asked to do housework, her son was using racism “as an excuse because they told him that’s the way people see him, as an excuse.” how to be a Black man, that the world is against and [he] now consider that a negative”.
Riley shared with Jesse that she expressed her concerns with the school, and she accused the school of saying her son could be a “speaker” for the Black community.
The mother also said that the school stated that if her son feels uncomfortable, he can talk about racial issues in a safe place. But Riley felt it was separation.
When I told them I didn’t think it was appropriate, they told me that if he was uncomfortable with conversations, he and other children of color could go to a safe place in those conversations. this chat, and that’s the separation.
Riley and other parents filed a lawsuit against the Albemarle School District in December. Her attorney, Ryan Bangert, claimed the school did not deny the curriculum and that it was “fighting back.”
