CLAIM: Debate Moderator Chris Wallace claimed that President Donald Trump is ending “racial sensitivity training.”

VERDICT: FALSE.

Wallace, moderating the first presidential debate on Tuesday night, made a number of inaccurate statements in his questions to both candidates on the topic of race.

One was the claim that President Trump is ending “racial sensitivity training.” That is simply not true Trump banned a specific kind of racial insensitivity training, which involves “Critical Race Theory.” As Breitbart News previously explained:

Critical Race Theory is the idea that the major institutions of the United States are tainted by slavery and racism because they were founded when slavery was still legal in parts of the country. According to the late Derrick Bell, who founded Critical Race Theory, the very institution of private property is tainted by racism because of slavery. Even the Civil Rights movement was regrettable to some extent, Bell believed, because it created an illusion of racial equality. Only a massive redistribution of wealth, driven by the creation of socioeconomic rights, can cure American society of its systemic racism, the theory holds.
