As the nation rips through revisions to how it looks at racism, there is a growing concern that the effort might not have the expected outcome and make race relations worse.
In the latest evidence of that, the outcry in some of the nation’s school systems over teaching “critical race theory” and that America is inherently racist is dividing the nation like few other issues.
Overall, the latest Rasmussen Reports survey said that 43% of voters polled said the teachings would make race relations worse. Just 24% said it would make relations better.
But the partisan divide is much wider. Some 67% of Republicans said critical race theory is divisive, while Democrats, by a 43% to 18% margin, believe it will make relations better.
