This is is big deal these days within the dwindle GOP ranks…..Red state after state is trying to pass laws against teaching this to students…..
In case you spend more time worrying about Britney and her stupidity let me flesh out the jest of the theory……..
Critical race theory is an academic concept that is more than 40 years old. The core idea is that race is a social construct, and that racism is not merely the product of individual bias or prejudice, but also something embedded in legal systems and policies.
- Recognition that race is not biologically real but is socially constructed and socially significant. It recognizes that science (as demonstrated in the Human Genome Project) refutes the idea of biological racial differences. According to scholars Richard Delgado and Jean Stefancic, race is the product of social thought and is not connected to biological reality.
- Acknowledgement that racism is a normal feature of society and is embedded within systems and institutions, like the legal system, that replicate racial inequality. This dismisses the idea that racist incidents are aberrations but instead are manifestations of structural and systemic racism.
- Rejection of popular understandings about racism, such as arguments that confine racism to a few “bad apples.” CRT recognizes that racism is codified in law, embedded in structures, and woven into public policy. CRT rejects claims of meritocracy or “colorblindness.” CRT recognizes that it is the systemic nature of racism that bears primary responsibility for reproducing racial inequality.
- Recognition of the relevance of people’s everyday lives to scholarship. This includes embracing the lived experiences of people of color, including those preserved through storytelling, and rejecting deficit-informed research that excludes the epistemologies of people of color.
Got it now?
Even religious types are against the teaching of the CRT (Critical Race Theory)…..
Pastor Dr. Byron McWilliams explained to his congregation on Sunday that God condemns critical race theory — an academic movement that seeks to provide a greater understanding of racial justice.
In his sermon at First Baptist Church in Odessa, Texas, McWilliams reported on his attendance at the recent Southern Baptist Convention.
One of the accomplishments, he said, was the denouncement of critical race theory.
“And the reason why is because it’s a theory of man,” McWilliams explained. “And it goes directly against the word of God, where the word of God of says that every man and every woman was created in the image of God regardless of the color of their skin.”
“And so that’s why we denounced that,” the pastor added to applause.
It was not immediately clear how critical race theory contradicts the Bible.
Me as well.
Watch the video…..and help us understand the moronic babbling of those slugs that give us that ‘old time religion’…..
