Critical Race Theory Is Dangerous. Here’s How to Fight It

CRT as a dangerous and divisive ideology is examined as placing a moral value to people on the basis of their skin color. History provides clarity as to why singling out a particular racial or ethnic group as can quickly lead us to a very bad place. The author also discusses how to respond to CRT.

A new orthodoxy has taken over our educational institutions with frightening speed. People who likely never heard the phrase “critical race theory” (CRT) before this summer are now getting emails from their children’s schools about “Decentering Whiteness at Home.” They are discovering that their children’s elementary-school teacher has read them “a book about whiteness” that teaches them how much “color matters” and encourages them to confront “the painful truth” about their “own family” — i.e., that they are being raised by racists. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg.
