If you only see people as part of a particular kind of crowd, you can never get to know them as a person. Critical Race Theory has nothing to do with Individuals – it is only about how to move power, using the guise of race, from one set of people to another.
Today, too many ‘remedies’—such as Critical Race Theory, the increasingly fashionable post-Marxist/postmodernist approach that analyzes society as institutional group power structures rather than on a spiritual or one-to-one human level—are taking us in the wrong direction: separating even elementary school children into explicit racial groups, and emphasizing differences instead of similarities.
The answer is to go deeper than race, deeper than wealth, deeper than ethnic identity, deeper than gender. To teach ourselves to comprehend each person, not as a symbol of a group, but as a unique and special individual within a common context of shared humanity. To go to that fundamental place where we are all simply mortal creatures, seeking to create order, beauty, family, and connection to the world that—on its own—seems to bend too often towards randomness and entropy.

These tactics play on the good nature of most Americans in a bad way and are at its foundation racist in itself. Even as it maintains that only whites can be the oppressors and everyone else, by definition, is oppressed.
How can you have E Pluribus Unum, out of many – one, when children are being raised to automatically believe that only THEIR Tribe, as defined by skin color (xes, gender, etc.), is the only “right” one?
Marxism teaches that the only thing that matters is a Class of people (a collective) – CRT breaks that into groups of “Race Classes” and then sets them to be at war with each other with the only prize being that of Power.
We’ve seen this, over and over again through history, how badly this turns out. After fighting a decades-long Cold War against Communism, is CRT it’s last laugh at those of us who value Freedom and Liberty for the Individual over Power and Race? Proponents of it say they are for Equality – no, they are lying to you about what they really want – Power for “their” group and dragging America back to the times and environments our forefathers forsake for exactly those reasons.
Look at Bruce Currie’s, our “resident commenter” and Bernie-Bro – it is a constant with him that he accuses America as being the worst ever at killing black and brown people; always the race card. Frankly, I don’t answer that kind of attack because it means nothing to me – I don’t care about skin color.
And in this, who really is the racist – someone that doesn’t care about skin color or someone that continually obsesses about it? Someone that is concerned only about a Group, or someone that takes the time and effort to understand an Individual?
Go past the rhetoric of CRT and you can see how damaging and pernicious CRT really is.
