A Fox News report claims that California State University East Bay is offering faculty $1,200 stipends for attending a course that seeks to understand how whiteness can be "eradicated."
The course, Anti-Racist Liberatory Pedagogy Academy, notes one of the university's intended outcomes for participants is "Enhanced knowledge and understanding of Critical Race Theory to provide a framework for and to inform their anti-racism pedagogy." The course introduction quotes Assata Shakur, the former Black Liberation Army member convicted of murdering New Jersey State Trooper Werner Foerster in 1973.
In Hope for This Present Crisis, bestselling author Dr. Michael Youssef explains that critical race theory fosters the belief that all elements of a free society are oppressive and must be dismantled. Critical race theory justifies rioting, looting, disrespecting and defunding police, and ultimately hating America and all it stands for.
Youssef points out that higher education institutions are the obvious choice to indoctrinate generations of radicals into critical race theory. "They portray everyone who opposes their agenda as racist, sexist, misogynist or homophobic. Their targets are people who believe in logic and reason, democracy, traditional American values, Western civilization and the Judeo-Christian faith tradition." Youssef warns, "[Critical race theory] uses fear to reinforce a narrative that everyone must buy into. Truth is slain on the altar of the delusional narrative. Anyone who contradicts this narrative will be canceled and publicly shamed as a racist."
The school offers $600 upon completion of the summer sessions and another $600 for completion of post-academy fall and spring semester sessions, touting the course as a "race-conscious framework that examines the ways whiteness is normalized in our country and in our University."
Youssef was born in Egypt and lived in Lebanon and Australia before coming to the United States and fulfilling a childhood dream of becoming an American citizen. He holds degrees from Moore College in Sydney, Australia, and Fuller Theological Seminary in California, with a Ph.D. in social anthropology from Emory University. He founded The Church of The Apostles, which was the launching pad for Leading The Way's international ministry. Dr. Youssef has authored more than 50 books, including popular titles such as Jesus, Jihad and Peace and Saving Christianity?
Youssef hosts the popular TV and radio broadcast Leading The Way with Dr. Michael Youssef, which airs more than 13,000 times every week across six continents in 26 languages—reaching audiences in nearly every major city in the world. His programs attract tens of millions of viewers weekly in the U.S. on major TV networks, including TBN, Daystar, Fox Business, Lifetime, GOD TV, CTN, NRB TV and more.
Equipped with a keen understanding of the Bible, the Middle East, sociological trends in the Western world and popular Christian worldview issues, Dr. Youssef is a sought-after voice whose expertise is regularly requested on both secular and Christian media, including Huckabee, Fox & Friends, Eric Metaxas, The Hugh Hewitt Show, The Christian Post, Fox News, Hannity, Glenn Beck, The 700 Club and more. He and his wife reside in Atlanta and have four grown children and 10 grandchildren.
