The United States Army is teaching critical race theory to cadets at its prestigious West Point Academy, recently obtained training materials show. The documents, acquired by Fox News Digital from the conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch, reveal that the Army's forthcoming leadership is being prepared to acknowledge its "whiteness" and "privilege," and to answer training questions via the lens of critical race theory. Judicial Watch had to sue the US military under the Freedom of Information Act twice before the training slides were issued, according to Fox News.

"Our military is under attack - from within," Fitton announced in a release. "These documents show racist, anti-American CRT propaganda is being used to try to radicalize our rising generation of Army leadership at West Point." The documents consist of more than 600 pages of training materials, including presentation slides, and accompanying questions. While some focus on matters as commonplace as bullying, others zero in on the experience of blacks in America, and directly apply critical race theory to the matter.

In different sections, cadets are requested to apply critical race theory to scenarios: "Do you think Affirmative Action creates an environment for 'reverse discrimination?' Use CRT to support your answer," one reads. Another states, "What is the difference between desegregation versus integration? How would you apply a tenant of CRT to this idea?" The materials inform cadets that white people 'have primarily benefited from civil rights legislation," and talk regarding "Modern Day Slavery in the USA." In a different section, cadets are asked the questions "What would W.E.B. Du Bois think of Barbershop?" referring to the Ice Cube movie regarding a black owned barbershop in southern Chicago. One section even evokes Communist Manifesto author Karl Marx to clarify that capitalism creates social structures in which the less-fortunate people are exploited. The Department of Defense has not remarked on the materials, nor has the office of Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin.

Progressives have claimed that it should be taught to all Americans and taught early, while conservatives have vehemently claimed that it is anti-American and should be banned.
