The War on Critical Race Theory

 What do all these attacks add up to? The exact targets of CRT’s critics vary wildly, but it is obvious that most critics simply do not know what they are talking about. Instead, CRT functions for the right today primarily as an empty signifier for any talk of race and racism at all, a catch-all specter lumping together “multiculturalism,” “wokeism,” “anti-racism,” and “identity politics”—or indeed any suggestion that racial inequities in the United States are anything but fair outcomes, the result of choices made by equally positioned individuals in a free society. They are simply against any talk, discussion, mention, analysis, or intimation of race—except to say we shouldn’t talk about it.

  1. This is, of course, bovine faeces.
    CRT is quite defined. It's in school curriculae. It's part of training for government jobs in many places. Its holy books are required readings in many liberal universities, even if you're in the sciences or engineering. It has its proponents, its prophets and its ideology. So this is just a duck and cover. There's no real CRF so rightist attacks are really just attacks on fairness!
    CRT seeks to overthrow equality of opportunity, reason and logic with equality of results, subjective truth and reverse racism that they deny is also racism. It is a dangerous ideology that threatens everything that took Western civilization out of the dark ages.
