Republican Senator Tom Cotton of Arkansas will introduce a bill Thursday that seeks to ban Critical Race Theory (CRT) trainings from the United States military, Christopher Rufo at the Discovery Institute first reported.

Senator Cotton’s Act cited as the "Combatting Racist Training in the Military Act of 2021” would ban trainings from the military that includes curriculum such as "any race is inherently superior or inferior to any other race" and that the US "is a fundamentally racist country."

"The United States' commitment to the equal dignity and natural rights of all mankind is the strongest possible defense against racism and oppression of all kinds," the bill said in an opening statement.

"Anti-American and racist theories, such as 'Critical Race Theory' teach that the United States is a fundamentally racist Nation, that the Constitution is a fundamentally racist document, and that certain races are fundamentally oppressive or oppressed," the bill explained. "Such theories encourage people to judge and treat others differently on the basis of their race, rather than treating them as equal citizens and human beings with equal dignity and protection under the law."

The controversial and racist Critical Race Theory trainings aim to educate individuals that America is a fundamentally racist country and that white supremacy exists and maintains power through the law. The trainings seek to transform the relationship between law and racial power through social and cultural issues, pursuing an end goal of 'antiracism.' Senator Cotton's bill would prohibit the military from educating servicemen that individuals hold "responsibility for the actions committed by other members of his or her race," education that is often featured in CRT trainings.

Last week, Chief of Naval Operations Adm. Michael Gilday announced "How To Be An Antiracist" would not be removed from the U.S. Navy reading list despite heavy criticism. Cotton's bill is an attempt to overturn Gilday's ruling.
