Raleigh, NC -- Cal Jr. (Jeff Jackson) refused to answer a voter’s question about his position on Critical Race Theory and even said it “doesn’t exist.” 

“Democrats like Cal Jr. are starting to panic as they realize Critical Race Theory (CRT) is not only dangerous and divisive, but also a political loser,” said NCGOP Press Secretary Livy Polen. “As North Carolina Democrat Senate candidates dodge questions regarding CRT, parents, school boards, and Republican leaders are acting to rid the public education system of CRT’s corrosive effects.”

Here are just a few examples of Critical Race Theory being taught in North Carolina:

  • The North Carolina Association of Educators President Tamika Walker Kelly vowed to teach Critical Race Theory “even if illegal.”

The following North Carolina County School Boards issued resolutions against Critical Race Theory:
