Critical Race Theory?


I am still not sure what it is specifically but it seems to be saying that America’s segragationist past is evidence that Blacks were oppressed by Whites. Seems to me that’s a no-brainer.

If you define Barak Obama as a black man, you are likely opposed to Critical Race Theory even if you don’t know it.

If you think race is a social construct and not a description of people with similar physical and biological characteristics, you support Critical Race Theory as a tool to beat American society over the head.

One thing for sure, one cannot define Barak Obama as a black man and also believe that race is a social construct… given his mixed heritage.

Critical race theory (CRT), intellectual movement and loosely organized framework of legal analysis based on the premise that race is not a natural, biologically grounded feature of physically distinct subgroups of human beings but a socially constructed (culturally invented) category that is used to oppress and exploit people of colour. Critical race theorists hold that the law and legal institutions in the United States are inherently racist insofar as they function to create and maintain social, economic, and political inequalities between whites and nonwhites, especially African Americans.”
