Oklahoma governor booted from commission after banning critical race theory
Oklahoma Gov. Kevin Stitt has been kicked off a commission marking the 100th anniversary of the Tulsa Race Massacre after he banned critical race theory from schools.
The 1921 Tulsa Race Massacre Centennial Commission members called a special meeting last week and “agreed through consensus to part ways with Governor Stitt,” the commission said in a statement.
The commission’s director, Phil Armstrong, on Tuesday had written to the Republican governor, ripping him for signing House Bill 1775 into law, prohibiting critical race theory from being taught in Oklahoma schools.
