The left loves to call anyone on the right-side of the aisle racist, but that literally does not make any sense at all. In all honesty, the only ones on the political spectrum that acts racist would be 100% the left in my opinion and there is plenty of evidence to support this statement.
For example, just recently one Colorado school promoted a race segregated event for “people of color”.
The event is called “Families of Color Playground Nights” which is to be held at Centennial Elementary School, which is part of the Denver Public School (DPS). The school’s calendar says that the first event was supposed to happen on Oct. 13. It would then happen on the second Wednesday of each month “at school, outside, as long as the weather allows.”

Christopher Rufo, an author, and filmmaker who has shown how critical race theory has been used in K–12 education took a picture of signs outside the school and put it on Twitter. “Denver Public Schools are now encouraging racially-segregated playtime for the sake of “equity,” Rufo wrote in the post.
Rufo also said that the event was organized by the school’s “Dean of Culture.” It was later canceled because of COVID-19 rules, but the school planned to reschedule the event for the new year.
When this picture was taken, it quickly became a meme. People put it next to images of segregated utilities, like drinking fountain images, with the captions “From separated and equal to separate but equitable.”
They said they planned the event after meeting with some of the school’s black families and that “all families are welcome at all of our events.”
“Some of these families told us that, since many of them only see each other at drop-off and pick-up times, we host events where Black families can meet one another, connect with one another, and share their experiences about the school with one another.” “We are going to do what they want.”
Centennial Elementary School in Denver out here acting like its 1950 with this racist bullshit. You know damn well if they had a night set aside for just white people to use the playground the whole school would be burned down by antifa & BLM.

“Critical race theory has brought back racial segregation in the public institutions of the United States,” he told The National Desk. “Racism disguised as “equity” is what happens at Denver Public Schools when kids of different races play together.” Denver Public Schools should stop this program right away because it is against the Colorado Constitution.
A law professor at the University of Denver named Dave Kopel agreed with Rufo, and he said that he thought the same thing. State law says there can’t be “any distinction or classification of students based on race or color.” He said in a Twitter thread that the event could be in violation of that law.
DPS released a document (pdf) in September that listed some of its “transition priorities” for the next school year. These are things the DPS wants to work on. It’s one of their main goals to “dismantle oppressive systems and structures that are based in racism and classism, and put students and team members at the heart of their work.”
A statement called “equity” is also in the document. It says that “equity will be achieved when we dismantle deeply rooted systems of oppression that have historically led to inequitable access and distribution of opportunities and resources for those who represent marginalized identities,” such as race or ethnicity or gender identity or sexual orientation, language, or ability.
