The term Critical Race Theory (CRT) has entered the public conversation in recent months due to conservative outrage about the theory being taught in schools or the workplace. This episode is based on a recent article I wrote of the same title, linked below.
Part one of this two-part episode will explore the definition of CRT, how Fox News helped to hijack and weaponize the term and take a critical look at whether this is a subject that should be taught in America’s public schools. Included are clips from the theory’s co-founder, Kimberle Krenshaw so that we can hear from the creator what the purpose and intent of CRT were from the start.
As always, there’s room for Democrats, Republicans, Conservatives, and Liberals to be part of this conversation, so be sure to let me know your thoughts on this divisive issue.
