What’s the impact of Critical Race Theory?

A professor at Columbia University recently shared a June 9th letter allegedly written by a student who encountered it at New Jersey’s Dwight-Englewood School.

Reportedly, it was sent to Dana Stangle-Plowe, who — as covered by RedState’s Jeff Charles — resigned this month from D-E over its incorporation of CRT.

Dana had issued a letter of her own.

Gov. Ron DeSantis, on the other hand, has likened the lessons to horse hockey.

And a recent bill aimed at ending CRT in D.C. schools has a different definition than Don or Chris.

Consider the teachings it bans:

One race or sex is inherently superior to another race or sex. The United States is fundamentally racist or sexist. An individual, by virtue of his or her race or sex, is inherently racist, sexist, or oppressive, whether consciously or unconsciously. An individual should be discriminated against or receive adverse treatment solely or partly because of his or her race or sex. Members of one race or sex cannot and should not attempt to treat others without respect to race
