The last one was shut down, so I’m starting a new one. I came across this blog post which I believe provides a great and concise defense of CRT: Why are you afraid of critical race theory?
Some key quotes (from the white blogger):
“it explains so much, helps me understand my failings, and yet also provides a framework for comprehending my role in American racism that doesn’t condemn me”
“I have benefited from historical biases in education and employment, but that doesn’t mean I have to be ashamed of who I am — it means I have a responsibility to work to change the system, so that everyone has the same opportunities I did.”
This is how I see CRT, and I believe how most CRT advocates see it. This becomes contentious mainly, IMO, because professional liars like Tucker Carlson lie about it on TV and stir up anger over something that isn’t there.
