The primacy of the individual — that we judge people not by their lineage but by their deeds — is at the very foundation of a free society and of the American experiment. Here, unlike so many other places, including Pakistan, the law and our common culture insists that we see people as individuals who are the product of their character, not their tribe, family, race, or status.
This wisdom has come under sustained assault by an ideology that insists that we are, in fact, avatars of various demographic markers — race, gender, sexuality — rather than complex human beings.
Critical Race Theory sees people not as individuals, but more like the Borg from Star Trek. It insists that white people are inevitably oppressors and that African-Americans are inherently oppressed. And everyone else, like Schrödinger’s cat, exist in a kind of liminal position, playing the role of victims or victimizers depending on the situation. That is how, in the context of the admissions process at Stuyvesant, Asians are seen as “white-adjacent” and privileged, but in the context of street crime, they are cast as victims. Attributes of specific races are assumed.
I suspect that many white liberals — ridden with guilt over American history and biases that still exist among the white majority — believe they are doing minorities like me a favor by denying us the responsibility of addressing our own prejudices. Critical race theorists often argue that the true definition of racism should be prejudice plus power, implying that only whites can be racist But hidden within that construction is the assumption that minorities can never be powerful.

WHAT?! We’re not special?
I would add that whites are quite possibly the least racist of all races.
I don’t like anybody all that much - except for Donald Trump.
Critical Race Theory = Communism+Racism = Leftism
That’s all you need to know about CRT
I hate everyone, just some people I hate a little less.
The deep state is developing hate to separate people so they can maintain control
It IS time for the people that have darker pigment in their skin to own up to the game, and admit, they can equally as well have members of their community full of revenge and angry... Can’t we all just get along? Isn’t this what Rodney King said after he got his millions?
Since the press wasn't 'leaked' the white man meme - we knew the killer was in a protected democrat victim group... Anyone know what the 'perverse sexual beliefs' were?
The brits were pretty much into pushing people around. Biggest empire ever and the Romans were kind enough to let their slaves fight their way to freedom. We haven’t avoided that pattern but we’re still learning and there’s still hope. Turning Iraq into a democracy?
Stop ism, don’t be an ist!
White Liberals want to rule the world, and tell minorities what they should think.
"I quote John Lennon, 'I don't believe in Beatles, I just believe in me.'. Good point there, after all, he was The Walrus."
I’m not worried. I now identify as a black, hispanic, asian, native american, pacific islander, trans-women. Got problem how I identify myself? It’s my right!
CRT is a dumb, wrapped in some idiocy, inside a stupid.
CRT is MUCH more evil than your definition - truly satanic evil.
I grew up in a place so lily white that we all had to pick on the “black Finns” aka Saami. It’s an inside joke that most of you wouldn’t get.
When I enlisted in the Army I was excited to meet people from different races and parts of the country.
My best buddy in boot camp was a Vietnamese dude from L.A. that had been in JROTC in High School.
Let’s just say my eyes were really opened in the Army regarding “African Americans”.
They are the most racist group in the US.
Blacks have benefited from an ENORMOUS amount of good will from white people. If not for white people, the various Cuvil Rights Acts would not have been passed.
But I see that good will eroding.
Yes. But I was working with paraphrasing the old quote. I couldn’t quite make starting with “turd” work where “dumb” was.
