David Brog, former executive director of Christians United for Israel, called critical race theory a “damaging message” to children in a recent interview with Alpha News.
Brog addressed political wars, defunding the police, and the negative effects of teaching the ideas of Critical Race Theory to children on a recent episode of the Alpha News Podcast.
Brog called critical race theory a “damaging message” and explained how teaching CRT will vastly effect a child’s success in the world. To tell a child that they cannot succeed in a world that is out to get them is not helpful to that child, he said.

In his own experience going to an inner city school, Brog said, students who were taught CRT achieved less and were less successful than those who were told they can accomplish great things.
Parents and teachers who say to children, “You can’t get anywhere in this world” and “The odds are stacked against you” are not allowing their children to thrive, Brog said.
Some people teach the message of CRT so they can feel “self-righteous” and “woke,” when, in reality, they are only condemning young black Americans to a destiny of not achieving their full potential, Brog said.
Brog also discussed the importance of members on the right becoming more involved in the conversation on political culture wars. Issues are being fought every minute, he said, and succeeding is all about gathering people who agree on certain topics — which is something the left is better at being more involved in, especially with young people.
“Nothing makes me angrier than seeing so many of these entitled young progressives that so often do not inhabit our inner cities, come in and participate in a riot, demand the defunding of the police, and then going home to their parents’ basement in the suburbs where they sleep the sleep of the righteous, while the people stuck in the inner cities suffer skyrocketing rates of violent crime and murder,” Brog said. “The pairing of their self-righteousness and the suffering of those left behind in the inner cities is maddening.”
Brog is an author, attorney, political writer, and former director of Christians United for Israel, an organization that supports Israel and fights against antisemitism in the U.S.
