GOP Lawmakers were drowned out by protesters outside the U.S. Capitol Building on Wednesday as they announced a bill that would ban critical race theory in federally funded schools.

Virginia Republican Rep. Bob Good introduced the Defending Students’ Civil Rights Act of 2021, which would amend the Civil Rights Act of 1964 “to make using critical race theory or critical race pedagogy in any program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance a violation of such Act, and for other purposes.” The text of the bill was not immediately available.

Good argued critical race theory has “infiltrated so many areas of our nation,” including “the education system.”

“If you oppose it, they call you a racist,” Good said. “On the other hand, they argue CRT does not even exist and it's a made-up issue.”

Protesters drowned out Republican lawmakers — including Good and Reps. Mary Miller of Illinois, Andy Harris of Maryland, and Dan Bishop of North Carolina — chanting “shame” and “Black lives matter.” Read more.
