Critical Race Theory is essentially racism, circa 1850. By John Hinderaker.

The Left controls almost all of America’s public schools, as well as its allegedly elite private schools. Leftists are moving rapidly to refashion education to inculcate our children in a bizarre revisionist history that is intended to cause them to hate their own country. This effort proceeds mostly under the banner of Critical Race Theory. It represents, I think, an existential threat to our country’s future.

Critical Race Theory is essentially racism, circa 1850. It holds that 1) the most important thing about a person is his or her skin color, 2) you have rights as a member of a racial group, not as an individual, and 3) members of the same racial group have similar personality and character traits. John C. Calhoun must be smiling, wherever he now resides. He was the intellectual leader of the Democratic Party in 1840, and he still is today.

And the CRT people call themselves “anti-racist”. What conceit. “Anti-white,” more like.
