CIVIL RIGHTS CAMPAIGN 2021: SCHOOLS MUST PROMOTE FREEDOM OF SPEECH, AVOID POLITICS IN THE CLASSROOM AND KEEP OUT RACIST IDEOLOGIES THAT CREATE TENSION.
The Society of College Medicine, the GLOBAL Leader in STEM/STEAM, is committed to protecting our students and challenging them deeply in the classroom. STEM/STEAM Competition, Independence, Unity and Achievement are paramount when talking about building/creating the future with STEM/STEAM. To do this, students must be free to learn and explore the world around them. We can help accomplish this in a multitude of ways. First, protecting Freedom of Speech is critical. Likewise, making ALL students feel welcome on campus by avoiding hurtful ideologies (example Critical Race Theory and such) is absolutely crucial.
Does your school promote equal access and time to University/College speakers? If not, please report them to us so we can investigate. Our nation’s school’s are plagued with a new trend of censorship and cancel culture against views they deem “hate speech,” leaving a stain on our country’s founding principle of free speech. This needs to end. Also, do you ever feel uncomfortable in class? Our policy is quite simple; NO politics in the classroom. None. Classroom settings are designed to create a place were students can be challenged and learn. Do you have teachers who attempt to inject politics/ideology into the classroom? If so, please report them to us. We will investigate, and if found to be accurate we will factor it into our Power Ranking system.
For K-12 Schools: Five (5) quick and sure ways to tell if something is inherently wrong at your school district:
1. Your school board meetings have turned into yelling matches between 2 sides?
2. You see racist/bias reading materials (primarily CRT) listed in a Diversity/DEI Reading list?
3. You feel a new type of “tension” on school grounds and in the classroom.
4. Teachers notice that some groups of students are noticeably quiet and not as engaged as before.
5. Censorship is being applied on school grounds, local school district social media groups and/or School Board Meetings.
These are ALL very bad things and do not belong in a caring, intelligent and forward thinking school district. This type of environment is mentally and socially abusive and harmful to students and must be corrected immediately.
If we want to fight prejudice, then let’s shape the conversation around our better angels; namely, freedom, the inherent dignity of every single person, truth, and the good.

TOP 10 “Flagged Books”
These books have been “Flagged” for promoting hate, not diversity. These books focus on promoting “Critical Race Theory” which the Society of College Medicine, after much research & discussion, has clearly concluded to be wholly racist and counter-productive in nature. Critical race theory is a theoretical framework, rooted in Marxism, that posits individuals as oppressed or oppressor based on their skin color. If you see these books being “pushed” by your school Diversity Department, your School’s Executive Board should be notified immediately.
NOTE: The books below are usually targeting Grades 9 and above. It is quite likely, if you see any of these titles in your reading list, that grades k-8 are also being exposed to this hurtful and harmful rhetoric/ideology.
How To Be An Antiracist
Kendi PROMOTES an “evolved” version of critical race theory.
Robin DiAngelo is the second most influential critical race theorists today. She’s actually more influential than Ibram Kendi. Her book, White Fragility, is extremely disingenuous. She’s cunningly branded herself as an expert “white ally” and marketed herself to wealthy, progressive white women.
Critical Race Theory: An Introduction
This book by one of the founders of critical race theory, Richard Delgado (and his wife Jean Stefancic).
White Christian Privilege
This book is by Khyati Y. Joshi, it writes about “Christians who embrace privilege.”
Stamped: Racism, Antiracism, and You by Jason Reynolds and
Ibram X. Kendi
Critical Theory: The Key Concepts
This book by Dino Franco Felluga. Felluga’s book lists and explains nearly all the key critical theory terms you’ll encounter as you study the topic.
Me and White Supremacy: Combat Racism, Change the World, and Become a Good Ancestor
Author is Layla Saad. This is a very bias book that showcases racist ideologies such as “white fragility,” “tone policing,” “white silence,” “anti-blackness,” “white apathy,” and “tokenism.”
Be The Bridge
This book encourages white Christians to alienate themselves from Christ in order to “reconcile” with black Christians. Therefore, this book creates disunity and division, not reconciliation.
This book by Thaddeus Williams focuses on critical race theory and social justice.
Stamped from the beginning: The definitive history of racist ideas in America. Another Kendi book, simply meritless and fixated on victimization.
Good White Racist? Confronting Your Role in Racial Injustice
By Kerry Connelly. Particularly bad, not just from a “victim” context perspective but also writing technique.
CRT for Younger Audiences: age 8+
Not My Idea: A Book About Whiteness. Anastasia Higginbotham (2020). This is a very derogative book that pushes hateful rhetoric and bias to a younger audience. It is full of introductions to CRT.
OTHER BOOKS THAT FEATURE HATEFUL CRT IDEOLOGY
James Baldwin, The Fire Next Time.
Gates, Henry Louis, The Signifying Monkey: A Theory of African American Literary Criticism.
