I don’t know about you, but one of the greatest movies of all time, in my opinion, is Dumb and Dumber. The movie is hilarious and an absolute classic.
It pains me to see just how off the rocker Jim Carrey have gone over the years. I don’t even like the guy at all anymore and have no desire to even watch his movies.
In reality, it looks like his co-star in the movie, Jeff Daniels, isn’t too far behind him either.
Daniels recently appeared on Stephen Colbert’s Late Show to talk about getting back on Broadway as well as taking the time to ridicule white people.
“I want to see what it means to walk out there as Atticus Finch post George Floyd’s murder and basically throw what Aaron Sorkin had written,” Daniel’s said mentioning the “white blindness” of white people.
“I think the Bloody Sunday for people of color was George Floyd’s murder, and white people said ‘I had no idea we were taught one side of American history, I better look into that.’”
So I started reading Isabel Wilkerson, Ta-Nehisi Coates, Carol Anderson, you know get educated because there’s a whole… we have an opportunity in this country right now to welcome in a new America, we really do.”
“And white people are the ones who need to hear it,” Daniels said.
Ta-Nehisi Coates is one man who calls for reparations to be paid to black people living in America. There are so many problems with the whole idea of reparations, but I’ll save that for another time.
Daniels got even darker, saying one of the themes of Mockingbird is that there is “goodness in everyone.” But systemic racism in America leaves him uncertain if that’s still true.
“Is there goodness in everyone in 2021?” Daniels asked rhetorically. “Not sure. You have to decide now if you’re for or at least [prepared to] marginalize systemic racism.”
Despite Daniels’ support for critical race theorists, not many Americans support the viewpoint, especially when it becomes indoctrination of our students.
Two recent polls showed that majorities of Americans do not want critical race theory forced upon school children. In August a Club for Growth poll found that 42 percent of respondents opposed CRT in schools while only 29 percent supported adding it to the curriculum. And in June, a YouGov poll found that 58 percent of Americans hold an “unfavorable” view of critical race theory.
