To the editor:

In the most recent CV article on the “Back the Badge” rally, Louisa County Sheriff Donald Lowe was quoted as stating that the sheriff’s office is “leading the way ...” through “cultural diversity training.”  

Given the association between “cultural diversity” and Critical Race Theory or CRT, I must hope that our sheriff’s office has not fallen into the trap of forcing employees to undergo CRT under the guise of diversity. Critical Race Theory, an evolution of Marxism-based Critical Theory, is virulently anti-capitalist, anti-white and, viewed closely, anti-American. This anti-everything we (and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.) stand for has caused the president to ban its mandated use in all federal agencies.

If the programs described in the article include or are based on Critical Race Theory, I implore the sheriff to immediately terminate them.
