Decimated comes from a punishment in the Roman army. It involved counting off all members of a unit and each tenth one was killed.

Critical race theory should be banned in the government at all levels. It is an exercise in cultural Marxism whereby the white man and the nuclear family are blamed for racism and that in order to be anti-racist, you must discriminate against white people and be racist yourself.
It's a backwards ideology and it's no wonder the left latches on to it.
This is how critical race theory developed within the academy. However, since around 2010, it has moved into the mainstream. The ideas we are most likely to hear are those of Ibram X Kendi and Robin DiAngelo.
And rather ominiously, at Tuesday’s debate the president also responded to requests to condemn white supremacy by telling the far-Right street fighters Proud Boys to “stand back and stand by. But I’ll tell you what: Somebody’s got to do something about antifa and the left.”
While American liberals might share the president’s wish for critical race theory to cease and desist, they must retain their principles of freedom of belief and be on their guard lest this language presages authoritarian censorship.
