NBC’s Alcindor Bizarrely Compares CRT’s Unpopularity to MLK

On Sunday”;s Meet the Press, one of the hot topics discussed was the landslide defeat of three woke school board members in dark blue San Francisco. Host Chuck Todd and his panel were clearly shocked by the results and sought to explain why it happened, with panelist Yamiche Alcindor insanely comparing Critical Race Theory to Martin Luther King Jr.

After some level-headed analysis from former Reagan speechwriter Peggy Noonan who said a big reason the three leftist school board members lost was that they weren”;t opening the schools fast enough, Todd turned to PBS”; Washington Week anchor and NBC contributor Yamiche Alcindor for her thoughts.

Alcindor thought the “;central issue”; of the school board election was parents seeing “;what their children are learning”; and therefore started “;rebelling against sort of what school boards are focused on.”;

Replying to Noonan’s claim that there was a “;small culture war”; going on in the country, Alcindor took issue with that characterization, claiming, “;I do think a small culture war is not the way that I would describe what”;s going on in our country. I would say that this is a huge culture war.”;

She continued by revealing that she was looking at a Gallup poll of Martin Luther King”;s approval ratings during the 1960s Civil Rights Movement.

“;The majority of the country did not support his work. That he was an unfavorable figure,”; she lamented before comparing that to the unpopularity of the teaching of Critical Race Theory and “;anti-racism”; in public schools:

I think anti-racism work in America has been unpopular historically, that of course, is complicated. But I think there is a real issue in this country of whether or not when we look at historical figures, when we look at slavery, and it”;s consequences whether people still feel comfortable talking about that. There was this inflection point after the murder of George Floyd and I think there has been a big backlash to that.

To compare the work of Martin Luther King Jr. who believed Americans should judge each other by the content of their character and not their skin color, to Critical Race Theory which teaches the opposite is just ridiculous.

But we shouldn”;t be surprised to hear this coming from Yamiche Alcindor.

CHUCK TODD: Yamiche, how much — this feels like not plowing the snow during a snowstorm type of result. Right? At the end of the day, that”;s why, you know-;this isn’t about politics, but there does seem to be some wedge here between Progressives and the pragmatism on the Democratic side.

YAMICHE ALCINDOR: Yeah, I mean, there is this central issue of parents having lived through the pandemic having also seeing what their parents–; what their children are learning, really having a front row seat to the challenges of all that. Rebelling against sort of what school boards are focused on. I do think a small culture war is not the way that I would describe what”;s going on in our country. I would say that this is a huge culture war.

PEGGY NOONAN: The Democratic Party though, It’s just beginning in the Democratic Party, I think.

ALCINDOR: I think even in the Democratic Party, I was looking at some numbers, Gallup poll, looking at sort of Martin Luther King’s favorabilities, we”;re in black history month, looking at the fact that the majority of the country did not support his work. That he was an unfavorable figure. And I think anti-racism work in America has been unpopular historically, that of course, is complicated. What you said, you’re not plowing the snow during a snowstorm, but that has added to this. But I think there is a real issue in this country of whether or not when we look at historical figures, when we look at slavery, and it”;s consequences whether people still feel comfortable talking about that. There was this inflection point after the murder of George Floyd and I think there has been a big backlash to that.
