Fox News Analyst Juan Williams claims “parent rights” is code for white supremacy

In his November 1st op-ed for “The Hill,” Fox News Analyst Juan Williams claimed that the “parents’ rights’ mantra in the Virginia gubernatorial elections is simply “a code for white race politics.” 

With reference to campaigning strategies in the 2018 elections, he wrote, “Virginia Republicans are back with a new and improved ‘Culture Wars’ campaign for 2021. The closing argument is once again full of racial division, but this time it is dressed up as a defense of little children.”

Williams claims that the concerns in Loudoun County Public Schools stem from “white parents” feeling “ignored when they complain that their children are uncomfortable learning about racism.”

Williams stated that, “It is a campaign to stop classroom discussion of Black Lives Matter protests or slavery because it could upset some children, especially white children who might feel guilt.”

Loudoun County residents of all races have spoken against the “divisive” curriculum. In May, black mother Shawntel Cooper delivered a speech to the Loudoun County school board, dubbing the race-based curriculum “racist” and “abusive.”

Williams argues in his op-ed that opposition to “Beloved” is racist because of the author’s race. “The attack on ‘Beloved’ is a direct attack on all great writing about race in America, especially from the Black point of view,” Williams said.
