The battle over critical race theory has been heating up for a while, and for once, conservatives seem to be fully engaged before it’s too late. As I wrote yesterday, the recent successes at the local level against CRT curriculum in schools have put the left-back on their heels. They didn’t expect the pushback they’ve gotten (they are used to the right just folding, after all) and they are desperately looking for a way to get conservatives to voluntarily surrender.

Of course, how the current systems cause oppression is a question always left unanswered. Are there specific laws that need to be changed? Which ones, exactly?

Further, to push the perverted idea that it is moral and necessary to be racist in the pursuit of equity, CRT proclaims that white people hold implicit, inbred racial views and benefit from “privilege” that justifies discrimination against them to balance
