Critical Race Theory is increasingly becoming a point of American contention.

It seems we’re in the midst of a cultural revolution, but there’s opposition afoot.

As CRT gets infused into corporate training and school lesson plans, citizens become more vocal, for or against.

And at California’s Saddleback College, the president’s speaking out.

In an open letter commemorating Juneteenth, Dr. Elliot Stern offers a curious comparison.

The president claims, “Critical Race Theory is the new Communism.”

The interesting thing: He means it as a compliment to CRT.

As you surely know, on June 17th, Juneteenth was declared a federal holiday.

Not everyone was in favor of the federal move.

And 14 House Republicans voted against.

Tiffany says House Democrats “created” the holiday to divide the country. Juneteenth started in Texas in 1866 to celebrate the end of slavery. The House vote to make it a federal holiday was supported by 195 of the 209 Republicans. https://t.co/Rr6YjwRFCF via @aligarfield_

For his part, Dr. Elliott’s glad to see it come to pass.

In the letter, he calls slavery “our nation’s greatest sin.”

And Elliot welcomes the “opportunity for us to reflect upon the depth and breadth of the stain the horror of slavery has left upon our society.”

“Racism has its roots in American slavery and vice versa,” he says.

There’s been tremendous talk about “institutionalized racism” as of late; Elliot says the scourge has been accomplished by slavery.

And because of the blight, now some black children can’t conceive of becoming president…or doing advanced math:

“[T]he stain of slavery is carried in the souls of even the youngest African Americans who question how they can be president or successful in Algebra when the deck has been stacked against them by a society that enslaved their not-so-distant ancestors…”

Today, the nation treats its black citizens with zero respect or worthiness of being equal:

“[America] continues to view and treat them as unworthy of respect and equality.”

It’s a dark time:

“The dimmer switch of emancipation has brought light to the room, but it is still
