An Ivy League biology professor is sounding the alarm on how critical race theory curricula is erasing the meaning and even existence of "objective truth" from classrooms and teaching a generation of students to treat the truth "fast and loose."
"We're supposed to be training people like biologists that will become doctors to make us healthier. Mechanical engineers that will build bridges or skyscrapers," associate professor at Cornell University’s School of Integrative Plant Science Randy Wayne told Fox News Digital in a phone interview this month. "And if they are trained on a foundation that there is no truth, nobody wants to be operated on by such a surgeon, or drive over a bridge made by such an engineer."
"And I'm afraid that's just where the universities are going. Training people to treat the truth fast and loose in order to obtain just what you want. And in the case of the universities, what they want is what they call ‘social justice.’ And they're willing to pay to play fast and loose with the truth to get it."
