Media Spread Fake News About Joanna and Chip Gaines Donating to His Sister’s School Board Campaign, as She Pushes Back on Critical Race Theory

“TV stars Chip and Joanna Gaines donate to campaign against critical race theory in schools” is an example of the misleading (and nearly identical) headlines corporate media pumped out this week about TV stars Chip and Joanna Gaines. Chip Gaines reportedly donated $1,000 to his sister Shannon Braun’s Grapevine-Colleyville Independent School District (GCISD) School Board campaign. Braun has opposed Critical Race Theory being part of school curriculum. But she hasn’t made her opposition to it a major part of her campaign.
