These days, Critical Race Theory is all the rage.

I mean that in two ways — it’s a popular topic, and some people are enraged over it.

For an example of passions running high, consider this week’s video of Illinois father of two Ty Smith, speaking his mind on the ideology at a local school board meeting:

But CRT has many fans; count CNN’s Don Lemon among them.

Don wants opponents to stop making it about them.

His is quite a different take than those condemning the teaching.

For criticism from the anti-CRT side, consider Republican Wisconsin Rep. Glenn Grothman’s recent proposal to prohibit it in Washington D.C. schools.
