AceShowbiz - One thing that Caitlyn Jenner will do if she's elected to be California's next governor is fighting against critical race theory which is taught in schools. During a appearance on Harris Faulkner's Fox News show, she claimed that young generation doesn't need that.
"I will do everything to fight critical race theory being taught to our children," Caitlyn shared. "This generation coming up is probably the least racist generation, the most open minded generation in the history of our country, you know?"
The former "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" star went on to say, "We don't need to set them back and try to teach them racism. I am totally 100% against that."
Her statement sparked outrage among Internet users. "A grandmother to SEVERAL black grandchildren. My disdain for this person grows daily," a user wrote on Instagram, noting that Caitlyn's grandchildren are in fact black. "Doesn't she have black grandkids? A mess," someone added, while another person said, "Feel sorry for her grandchildren."
"When we don't know our history it's bound to repeat itself. Wypipo the true stories need to be told to these kids," a user added. "I'm not understanding why white people think CRT is so bad. You don't want your children to understand race for WHAT?" someone questioned. Another comment, meanwhile, read, "She is a walking oxymoron...Conservative but living a very Liberal life, has a black grandchild but is against teaching critical race theory."
During the interview, the 71-year-old Republican also discussed the immigration crisis facing border states like California. "I would close our California border. I would use state funds to close the border. We have to have control of our immigration system," she revealed. Despite that, Caitlyn shared that she supports amnesty for immigrants who have been "good citizens," saying, "They are a vibrant part of our economy. They are a vibrant part of our state. They need to get legal protection to be able to stay."
Caitlyn announced her candidacy for California governor back in April. "I have been a compassionate disrupter throughout my life, from representing the United States and winning a gold medal at the Olympics to helping advance the movement for equality," Caitlyn said. "As Californians, we face a now-or-never opportunity to fundamentally fix our state before it's too late."
