The New Hampshire State House is currently debating a proposed bill which would ban state funding of institutions pushing critical race theory.
A relevant excerpt is reproduced below:
"II. “Divisive concept” means the concept that:
(a) One race or sex is inherently superior to another race or sex;
(b) The state of New Hampshire or the United States is fundamentally racist or sexist;
(c) An individual, by virtue of his or her race or sex, is inherently racist, sexist, or oppressive, whether consciously or unconsciously;
(d) An individual should be discriminated against or receive adverse treatment solely or partly because of his or her race or sex;
(e) Members of one race or sex cannot and should not attempt to treat others without respect to race or sex;
(f) An individual’s moral character is necessarily determined by his or her race or sex;
(g) An individual, by virtue of his or her race or sex, bears responsibility for actions committed in the past by other members of the same race or sex;
(h) Any individual should feel discomfort, guilt, anguish, or any other form of psychological distress on account of his or her race or sex; or
(i) Meritocracy or traits such as a hard work ethic are racist or sexist, or were created by a particular race to oppress another race.
(j) The term “divisive concepts” includes any other form of race or sex stereotyping or any other form of race or sex scapegoating."
This means that the NH government is taking important steps to defend the concepts of meritocracy, among other things, and avoid them being officially labelled as "racist."
According to the bill's language, discussion of these topics would still be allowed within state-funded institutions, allowing for ample freedom of speech, assuming that the institution itself takes a strictly neutral stance, in the interest of genuine debate and investigation.
Debate and investigation of the bill itself within the State House stated on Feb. 11 and is ongoing.
