Until recetly the term Critical Race Theory or CTR, was unknown to most Americans.
Christopher F. Rufo defines it this way
CRT, it can be identified as a Marxist philosophy that embraces the concept that all social and cultural issues should be viewed through the lens of race.
There are a series of euphemisms deployed by its supporters to describe critical race theory, including “equity,” “social justice,” “diversity and inclusion,” and “culturally responsive teaching.” Critical race theorists, masters of language construction, realize that “neo-Marxism” would be a hard sell. Equity, on the other hand, sounds non-threatening and is easily confused with the American principle of equality.
The left leaning Wikipedia defines CTR as:
Critical race theory (CRT) is an academic movement of civil-rights scholars and activists in the United States who seek to critically examine the law as it intersects with issues of race and to challenge mainstream liberal approaches to racial justice.
The left's insistence that everything in life revolves around bias and racism is divisive to the over all population. A YouGov poll sponsored by the Economist found 58 percent of Americans have an “unfavorable” view of Critical Race Theory (CRT), while 38 percent view CRT favorably.
Regardless, CTR is getting advanced because of the power of their influencers in media, entertainment and government.
You will find CTR in public school curriculum, lectures in universities and increasingly via seminars paid for by fortune 500 corporations, and required attendance by their employees.
Even NASA has bitten the social justice apple.
From The Federalist
The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) unveiled an initiative called “Mission Equity” on Monday that seeks to “streamline its programs, procurements, grants, regulations and policies to remove systemic inequitable barriers and challenges facing underserved communities.”
As more parents and employees have been exposed to the racists tenants of the social justice movement, hundreds of groups have formed to stop CRT from getting taught in the local schools all the way multiple governors, including Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, who has signed bills blocking CRT from being taught at any schools in the sunshine state.
The idea that concerned parents have spoken up and are fighting against the propaganda has drawn extreme commentary from far leftists looking to stop them if possible.
According to Jason Stanley, a professor of philosophy at Yale University, the Republican Party’s fight against the teaching of Critical Race Theory (CRT) in schools is akin to neo-Nazis in Germany seeking to revise history and put an end to Holocaust education.
From The Post Millennial
A team from NBC News claims that the fight over critical race theory in schools is not due to grassroots action by parents, but is being fuelled by conservative special interest groups and dark money. That parents have formed networks, obtained support, and are working together to try to fight racist indoctrination in schools is an issue, apparently.
As with other issues, CRT will be taught to hundreds of thousands of Americans this year.
The question is how will those who oppose the ideology counter their reach via grassroots counter education and training.
