That’s pretty much it. There is of course a full library of Critical Race Theory scholarship that goes much deeper, but what I have shared the past few days is enough to give anyone a working idea of CRT’s foundation and elements.
So let me add, here at the end, what Critical Race Theory is NOT.
It is not about hating America. Or hating White people.
It is not about blame.
There may be some who, thanks to these tenets, learn something about this country and then feel some animosity, anger, or possibly hatred- but those things are not principles of the Critical Race Theory framework. Those things (animosity, anger, hate) can grow from any number of sources, including from learning truth. This does not mean we should avoid truth to alleviate anger.
Maybe some would prefer that tactic? Willful ignorance?
Either way, angry or otherwise, a patient being diagnosed with cancer should not blame their illness on the diagnosing doctor.
CRT is very much about diagnosis and understanding what is, or has been, happening and why.I have not read a single article or study by any Critical Race Theory expert, who upon making a find, prescribed hate as a solution.
