Critical Race Theory

Growing up poor in Detroit, if I had believed, as critical race theory (CRT) proponents claim, that my destiny was based on my race, I would not be where I am today. We cannot allow CRT to rob American children of that same hope that was instilled in me.

Once again that has nothing at all to do with CRT. I have posted the definition on this thread multiple times.

So you should tell Ben Carson that his definition of CRT is not YOUR definition of CRT. That way you can enlighten him....Ben sure doesn't see himself as a victim...
Ben knows a lot about medical procedures, but CRT is not his forte.

America's preeminent thinker on the right gives his thoughts on the destructive nature of CRT-this article is worth posting in multiple threads:


The critical race theory craze is reaching peak woke, or is already on the downslope. No complex and sophisticated society is sustainable with a Maoist creed of cannibalizing citizens for thought crimes. Commissars do not produce anything or serve anybody, but only monitor thoughts and speech to ascertain the purity of diversity, equity, and inclusion. They are not just a drain on the productive sector but will insidiously destroy it, since their currency is to ensure a timid, obsequiousness and banal orthodoxy.

We know from the failed Soviet system and from the French Revolution that the most mediocre in society became its most eager auditors of correct behavior. The arbiters of proper thought—the self-righteous paid toady, the perpetual victim employed in service to government payback, the freelancing snitch—were always the villains of freedom, productivity, and humanity, whether we read of the killing off of Alexander the Great’s inner circle, the forced suicides of the Neronian circle, the Jacobin murder spree, or the nightmarish world described by Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn.

And yet elementary school teachers are more than qualified to teach it.

Hilarious.
This will be the third time I have posted the following quote on this thread.


"Bad teaching of C.R.T is worse than no teaching of C.R.T. argue me if you want to but in this climate, we must leave to the experts what the experts do. School Boards are arguing over whether or not to teach it, when the teachers themselves dont know what it is that they are teaching."

Julius Bailey


That being said all this stuff they are accusing or listing being taught by elementary school teachers is not CRT.

"The Republican operatives, who dismiss the expositions of critical race theorists and anti-racists in order to define critical race theory and anti-racism, and then attack those definitions, are effectively debating themselves. They have conjured an imagined monster to scare the American people and project themselves as the nation's defenders from that fictional monster."

"Republican operatives have buried the actual definition of critical race theory: “a way of looking at law’s role platforming, facilitating, producing, and even insulating racial inequality in our country,” as the law professor Kimberlé Crenshaw, who helped coin the term, recently defined it. Instead, the attacks on critical race theory are based on made-up definitions and descriptors. “Critical race theory says every white person is a racist,” Senator Ted Cruz has said. “It basically teaches that certain children are inherently bad people because of the color of their skin,” said the Alabama state legislator Chris Pringle."

"And now the Black Lives Matter demonstrators, cancel culture, the 1619 Project, American history, and anti-racist education are presented to the public as the many legs of the “monstrous evil” of critical race theory that’s purportedly coming to harm white children."


The right only debates with itself: their view and their version of the left. Fighting with that is near impossible​


Kendi brilliantly lays bare that which many of us have been ensnared in for ages — that pundits and politicians create their own version of many progressive, liberal and leftist views, and then they fight with their version. There is no real debate and certainly no dialogue, because the entire game is to offer up a distorted version of a position, then freak out about it.

Once the pattern is recognized it can be seen everywhere. Kendi refers to the way it has been used with Black Lives Matter, the New York Times' 1619 Project, cancel culture, and critical race theory, but we can see the same play made with almost all progressive political positions. Professors are trying to brainwash students to become socialists, feminists think all men are rapists, abortion rights defenders don't care about life, the gay community doesn't respect marriage, and so on. We can even see it in claims that young people are snowflake whiners.

You don't know what CRT is and neither does he. Maybe take some time and read about it for yourself.

What's wrong, Uncle Ben is destroying your storyline so you accuse him of not knowing what he's talking about. So typical of the left.
It is a waste of time even discussing this because those of you upset by this are not critical thinkers. You take as gospel what some dope incorrectly concludes about something that is then used as a wedge issue. You don't look into it yourselves and dismiss anything that is contrary to your irrational panic. Something that should lead to understanding and is meant to make things better for everyone, is turned into fear mongering. CRT has been around for decades and because some idiot gets on Tucker Carlson and talks garbage, then it gets regurgitated by Trump, you guys believe it's something it's not. Start thinking for yourselves.
