I don’t know what people are talking about when they use this term. So I went to Britannica and read this:
I still don’t get it. How does this work in China., Malaysia, Africa, and Europe?
Which people of color are oppressed in China by their dominant culture? Oh? There are no people of color in China? Well, I’m guessing that one can propose a social, human, theory that does not apply to the whole world but only to former European colonies.
When the Irish were sent as slaves to the New World in the 1600s, how does Critical Race Theory apply to them?
Can we set this straight? All this crap one reads about today is about twisted segregationism. It was once believed that it was a natural human condition to fear or hate or disapprove of other races and cultures. The solution was the separation of races through law, culture, and life. It was largely the result of Europe’s colonial adventures and the exploitation of local labor and resources for capital gain. The separation of races was considered “natural” because of the cultural differences and the obvious skin color differences. The forced migration of slave peoples to America to enable its economic growth started all of this.
Of course, now we see fewer cultural differences and more similarities between races. The Great Society was the cultural solution to segregationism in American society and marked the beginning of the end for America’s exploitaion of labor (white and black) and the cultural segregationism that was in place. That is the way it was IN AMERICA. Not China. Not Europe. Not Malaysia. And NOT Australia.
AND in the US, the Indian population was never enslaved. They were confined and segregated and given their own land to live on. Forced upon them by people who didn’t want to kill all the Indians. More forced migration. The Indians were abused and subjugated by America but they were not slaves and Critical Race Theory can’t explain them nor the Irish Slave Trade.
So when you hear all this nonsense that frames the black experience and calls itself Critical Race Theory , it is a fabrication in my opinion. Documenting cutural changes in America as a Critical Race Theory is balderdash.
I said before that looking through Black-Colored Glasses is wrong. It still is.
