A video of a father dismissing critical race theory while speaking to his young daughter has gone viral.
Kory Yeshua tells his daughter in the video that there is no limit to what she can do. “Daddy teaches: You can be anything in this world that you want to be right, don’t daddy teach you that?”
His young daughter agrees, saying “it doesn’t matter if you’re black or white or any color.”

“Doesn’t matter if you’re black, white, brown, yellow, right? And how we treat people is based on who they are and not what color they are.”
“And if they’re nice and smart!” his daughter adds.
“See, this is how children think right here,” Yeshua says. “Critical race theory wants to end that. Not with my children. It’s not gonna happen. My baby’s gonna know that no matter what she wants to be in life all she has to do is work hard and she can become that.”
“Work hard even though you don’t know anyone, you can make friends!” his daughter chimes in. (RELATED: EXCLUSIVE: Republicans Demand Department Of Education Withdraw Rule Forcing Critical Race Theory In Schools)
“You can make friends, no matter what color they are, so we need to stop critical race theory, period. Point blank,” Yeshua said. “Children do not see skin color. They love everybody. If they’re good people we love them.”
The clip was originally posted to TikTok in May, according to Newsweek.
Critical race theory holds that America is fundamentally racist, yet it teaches people to view every social interaction and person in terms of race. Its adherents pursue “antiracism” through the end of merit, objective truth and the adoption of race-based policies.
The theory has received pushback from politicians nationwide, including former President Donald Trump and Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis. DeSantis banned critical race theory from Florida schools.
