(Tony Sifert, Headline USA) Georgia Democrat gubernatorial candidate and avowed elections-denier insurrectionist Stacey Abrams has received more than $50,000 for her work as a board member of an anti-capitalist and anti-white foundation.
The mission of the Marguerite Casey Foundation, named after the sister of UPS founder Jim Casey, is to identify and undo “racism and white supremacy, on every level, in order to create an environment where acceptance, dignity and justice are experienced by all.”
“Abrams’ campaign told Fox News Digital last week that Abrams, who joined the foundation’s board in May 2021, does not hold the same views as the foundation,” Fox reported.
The foundation has given awards to the leading lights of the Critical Race Theory and Marxist movements.
The Marguerite Casey Foundation named Robin D. G. Kelley, Gary B. Nash Professor of American History at UCLA, a 2021 Freedom Scholar and gave him $250,000 “to advance his work in service of justice, freedom and social change.”
That work includes an attack on the white supremacy inherent in capitalism.
“Any true liberation has to be anti-capitalist,” Kelley told NPR. “There’s no way capitalism can save us. ”
“Even if you could create a capitalism that’s somehow non-racial, which of course, is impossible – but let’s say in theory you can do that,” Kelley continued. “We still have deep exploitation and inequality produced by it.”
Another Casey grant recipient is Lorgia Garcia Peña, an ethnic studies professor at Tufts University.
Peña has attacked white supremacy as fundamental to the United States’ education system.
“What we teach at every school right now—what we consider to be the standard humanities and social science curriculum—is actually grounded in white supremacy, but is masked as objectivity,” she told the Boston Review.
Abrams’ campaign disavowed the organization in a statement to Fox News, but she is still listed as a board member and apparently hasn’t returned her $50,000.
