Is Critical Race Theory a clear and present danger to this country? Why are the southern states rushing to block the true history of our country?
Andino Ward joins us this week to discuss Critical Race Theory.
We did not realize that CRT would bring such strong disagreements within our team. It did. So we have to do Part II.
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.
The basic tenets of critical race theory, or CRT, emerged out of a framework for legal analysis in the late 1970s and early 1980s created by legal scholars Derrick Bell, Kimberlé Crenshaw, and Richard Delgado, among others.
26 States are taking action to circumvent CRT and the Republicans are livid!
