After voters in Southlake, Texas, rejected the efforts of left-wing activists to mandate “cultural competence” training in K-12 schools, NBC News lamented the “bitterly divided” contest, even though two-thirds of the electorate backed candidates who opposed the controversial proposal.
The Comcast subsidiary’s reporting on the election results is almost comically biased in its framing of the dispute. The election, which saw unusually high turnout compared with similar contests, is described as a showdown between candidates who “supported new diversity and inclusion training requirements” for students and teachers on one side, and “those backed by a political action committee that was formed last year to defeat the plan.”
The article goes on to state the following:
The activist-backed proposal, unveiled in 2020, called for mandating cultural sensitivity training from “enrollment to graduation,” establishing a “systemic process for consistently tracking and reporting microaggressions and incidents of discrimination,” and creating a Director of Equity and Inclusion position with an annual salary of $125,000. The NBC News report described opponents as either “conservative” or “white,” while its backers were merely “pro-diversity.”
In the May 1 election, opponents of the critical race theory curriculum won landslide victories in every race on the ballot – two city council seats, two school board seats, and the mayoral race – by 36 percent to 70 percent.
NBC noted in their report that over 9,000 voters cast ballots, three times as many as in similar contests in the past.
NBC also wrote, “On one side, progressives argued that curriculum and disciplinary changes were needed to make all children feel safe and welcome in Carroll, a mostly white but quickly diversifying school district. On the other, conservatives in Southlake rejected the school diversity plan as an effort to indoctrinate students with a far-left ideology that, according to some, would institutionalize discrimination against white children and those with conservative Christian values.”
Opponents of anti-racism education win big in a bitterly divided election in Southlake, Texas. Conservative candidates who opposed a school diversity plan won every local race, taking about 70% of the vote in the wealthy Dallas-Fort Worth suburb. https://t.co/m7rtlYh3X0

One Twitter user who uses the hashtag #TurnTexasBlue lamented, “Texas, we have BIG PROBLEMS! Candidates who opposed anti-racism education win big.”
