Is music theory racist?

I read some discourse the other day that really sprang true to me. Music theory as we know it is derived from and still taught in the form it was created in the 1800s by white Europeans. It doesn't apply to contemporary music and forcing kids to learn it that way in school is inherently racist and biased. I have taken a few music theory classes in my life time and I cannot find any way to apply it to music made nowadays, yet it hasn't changed from how it was made by Europeans hundreds of years ago. I think should be addressed further as more awareness is brought up in society. Your thoughts?
