An outraged parent's criticism of Critical Race Theory (CRT) is going viral online. Ty Smith, a father of two sons, spoke out against the anti-race movement at an Illinois school board meeting.
Smith, who holds two medical degrees, questioned the theory of teaching Black children that they are oppressed.
"How did I get where I am right now if some white man kept me down?"
Smith complained that CRT teaches children how to hate each other. CRT also teaches Black children that they will never get ahead because of white people.
"You're going to deliberately teach [Black] kids, 'this white kid right here got it better than you because he's white'? You're going to purposely tell a white kid that black people are all down and oppressed? How do I have two medical degrees if I'm sitting here oppressed?"
Smith, who hosts the "Cancel This" program on Cities 92.9FM talk radio, appeared on Fox News to talk about the video going viral.
He said he taught his two sons (ages 17 and 19) to treat people with respect -- not based on the color of their skin.
At the end of the video, a woman shouts at Smith, "Don't scream." The video ends abruptly as people turn on her.

A CBS anchor went viral for excusing a shoplifter who rode his bike into a San Francisco Walgreens and cleaned the store out.
"CBS This Morning" co-host Tony Dokoupil went viral on Wednesday morning after he excused a man for stealing a trash bag full of goods and fleeing the store on a bicycle.
"So crime is never justified of course," said Dokoupil. He was interrupted by co-host Anthony Mason, saying, "I will say that I think they could have made a little better effort to stop that bicycle. I mean you could have disrupted that bike."
"Well, I mean, I don't know," Dokoupil said. "You don't need to be a hero over some toothbrushes or whatever it is."
Dokoupil implied that the Black male shoplifter was "desperate" and probably needed essential items, such as a toothbrush and hair products.
"That reads also as an act of desperation. I mean, you're not getting rich off what you take from a Walgreens, you're getting probably something you need. I don't know the details of that particular case."
The incident happened at the Walgreens on the corner of Gough and Fell Streets in very liberal San Francisco.
The police stopped answering shoplifting calls after a 2014 ballot referendum downgraded property theft of less than $950 to a misdemeanor.
Now shoplifting is so routine in San Francisco, that shoplifters often sell their stolen merchandise on the sidewalk around the corner from the store they stole from.
ABC7 reporter Lyanne Melendez tweeted a video of the shoplifting incident on Monday, and her video went viral.
Pop singer Aubrey O'Day was also criticized for saying shoplifting is justified because Walgreens' CEO earns millions of dollars in bonuses.

An Ohio woman allegedly assaulted McDonald's employees because they refused to mix three flavors of a frozen beverage.
However, the employees turned the tables on the aggressive customer and snatched her wig back.
The incident took place on Monday, June 14, in Ravenna, Ohio. Viral cellphone video shows Cherysse Helena Cleveland assaulting two McDonald's employees who declined her request to mix three flavors into one Slushie drink.
Cleveland, 44, is seen shoving and punching two female employees when they tried to stop her from going behind the counter to mix the drink herself at a slushie machine.
The employees repeatedly asked Cleveland to leave but she ignored their requests and continued to hit them and scream verbal abuse.
At one point, Cleveland snatched the mask off one employee and threw a cup of ice in her face.
Forced to defend herself, one employee grabbed a handful of Cleveland's hairweave and punched her repeatedly, as a customer yelled, "Worldstar."
Police arrived minutes later and placed the agitated customer under arrest around 9:40 a.m.
Her bond was set at $1,000 and she was ordered to stay away from the McDonald's employees.

A Houston reporter who went viral for threatening to expose corruption at FOX News Corp. has been suspended.
Fox 26 News reporter Ivory Hecker went off script during a live remote on Monday. She said FOX News corporation have been "muzzling" her and other reporters at the station to prevent them from telling viewers the truth.
"Before we get to that story, I want to let you, the viewers, know that Fox Corp. has been muzzling me to keep certain information from you, the viewers. And from what I'm gathering, I am not the only reporter being subjected to this. I am going to be releasing some recordings about what goes on behind the scenes at Fox, because it applies to you, the viewers. I found a non-profit journalism group called Project Veritas that is going to help put that out tomorrow, so tune in then."
Hecker said she leaked secret recordings to Project Veritas's James O'Keefe, who was banned from Twitter for leaking a video exposing CNN.
Hecker's supervisor, Lee Meier, called to tell her she was suspended, "effective immediately". Hecker recorded that call too.
"I wanted to call you and let you know that you are suspended, effective immediately, pending further review," Meier said.
"Ok. Sounds good," Hecker responded.
Project Veritas has confirmed they will conduct a sit-down interview with Hecker on Wednesday night. The conservative group will air recordings and video provided by Hecker during the interview.
So far, there has been no word on the information contained in the recordings.
Hecker is being hailed as a hero for risking her job to expose Fox News.

Former NBA player Kwame Brown called out NYC radio host Charlamagne for his past rapey behavior involving young girls.
Brown put Charlamagne on blast after previously targeting retired NBA star Matt Barnes last week.
Brown was annoyed after Charlamagne told The Breakfast Club listeners to "leave Kwame Brown alone" because of a violent incident involving Brown's father who was accused of killing his girlfriend with an axe.
"I'm saying all that to say, leave Kwame alone. That man has been quiet for 20 years, he don't bother nobody. Clearly all that 'he's a bust up' gets to him. You don't know what people are going through or have been through."
Brown was displeased by Charlamagne's comments. He launched into a "meet me outside" rant, and reminded his viewers of Charlamagne's rapey history.
"Rapist, Charlemagne Tha God. Rape case guy that actually pled guilty and got away with it. We gon' find that girl you raped, punk. Allegedly. Matter of fact, we ain't gotta say allegedly ’cause you on the docket, b**ch."
Brown urged radio co-host Angela Yee and other famous Black women to "unfollow this son of a b*tch."
"Why would you let that man sit across from you knowing what he did to that woman? Why is he still on a national radio show?
"Why is he still on a national radio show? I thought it was love all women or am I absolutely right that it's 'pick me(s)', and if it's the m'fer you go eat lunch with or the m'fer you follow on instagram that you like, a punk b**ch can brag and dominate a woman then sit there and talk about it in an interview, further mentally f'n up this lady."
"Dis n***a has a lot, a lot, a lot of famous black women that's his friend. I'm going to expect you women to unfollow this son of a b**ch. Are y'all supporting his behavior? Why do Charlamagne Tha God get a pass for what he did?"
Wendy Williams' ex-husband Kevin Hunter, who has a vendetta against Charlamagne, added his two cents:
A security guard is being hailed a hero for coming to the rescue of an elderly Asian man who was being assaulted by three women.
In a viral video taken at a gas station, three women are seen assaulting the elderly man as he sat in his car.
As the women pummeled the defenseless man, a security guard rushed over and stopped the attack.
Twitter users are calling the man a hero for stepping up to do what's right. Many requested a GoFundMe link to send money to the man for responding above and beyond the call of duty.
Some Twitter users believe the three women are prostitutes and at least one of them is a transgender.
The video was posted on Twitter.com the same day Joe Biden signed a hate crimes bill in response to a rise in violence against Asian Americans.
One Black Twitter user feared the bill "will be used specifically against Black Americans."

Actor Ricky Schroder has apologized for his tirade at a Costco supervisor for denying him entrance to a store without a face mask over the weekend.
The former child star filmed his rant toward the supervisor, named Jason, after he was denied entry into the California store without a mask. Schroder reminded Jason that the corporate office dropped the mask mandate on Friday. But Jason didn't budge. He informed Schroder that California law still mandates masks.
Schroder called for a boycott of all Costco stores in California. His video went viral on Sunday, with many social media users choosing sides.
The conservative actor now admits he may have gone too far. In a follow-up video he apologized to Jason, who was only following store policy.
"Jason, nothing personal. I'm not upset with you or anybody in the position like you have, who works for a living," the former NYPD Blue star said. "I understand you were following your laws and rules. I was trying to make a point to the corporate overlords and I'm sorry that I had to use you to do it. And if I hurt your feelings, I apologize."
But he made it clear he's not softening his anti-mask stance, adding, "I want us all to go back to the way it was. I don't want this COVID reality they want, these COVID passports. I just don't want it. And neither should you."
Last November, it was revealed that the "Silver Spoons" star helped bail out Kyle Rittenhouse, the teenager who fatally shot two armed protesters during a riot in Kenosha, Wisconsin last summer.

A man physically assaulted a much smaller woman at a Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) office in Missouri.
Cell phone video shows a woman speaking with a DMV employee about her driver's license. The woman became upset and turned to leave. That's when the Black man approached her and assaulted her.
The man, who was dressed in causal clothing, identified himself as a police officer. After exchanging words with her, he grabbed the woman by the neck and began punching her repeatedly, knocking her to the floor.
The man stood over her and threatened her, telling her to "stay down."
No one in the DMV stepped forward to assist the young lady.
Eventually, a police officer arrived and placed the woman in handcuffs -- even though she was assaulted.
The video is an example of the double standard that exists in America. If the man had been white, all hell would break loose.

Lil Nas X's father rushed to his defense after a viral video showed his drug addict mom strung out on a street corner in Atlanta.
LNX has a close relationship with his dad, Robert Stafford, but he and his mother remain distant.
Earlier this week, a video surfaced showing his mother begging for money and food on a street corner.
Gossipmongers called out LNX for supporting his father and sister while disregarding his strung out mother.
According to bloggers, LNX's mother kicked him out of her home when he was 9. He went to live with his father, who tried to provide a stable home for the apparently promiscuous youngster.
On Thursday, Stafford took to social media to set the story straight.
The aspiring gospel singer shared a photo of himself posing with LNX and his mother. Stafford called the one-hit rapper the "greatest kid a parent can be BLESSED with."
"Despite what people say @lilnasx is the greatest kid a parent can be BLESSED with. Although his mom is in a struggle with an addiction she's STILL a QUEEN and he goes through great lengths to make sure we're taking care of [sic]. Those who have family members and friends dealing with addiction understands that there ain't enough money you can throw at this situation to make it right. I dont usually address personal issues publicly but felt like this need to be. Please join us in keeping her in your PRAYERS. And to those out there trying to create a false story you wont prosper. #controlthenarrative."
