A question for our many readers:
Thus; when was the first time you heard of "Critical Race Theory"? For me, it was early this year. I had not ever heard of this concept before, in fact, I do not believe I have ever held any "discrimination" thought or theory ever. Do I discriminate based on race - no? I discriminate based on the character and integrity of the individual. There are certain people I would never invite into my home, but that determination is and has never been based on one's race.
I have recently started reading Mark Levin's latest book "American Marxism". I am only on page 86 but at the lower part of the page, Mark defines it thus: "In short, CRT is an insidious and racist Marxist ideology spreading throughout our culture and society. The Heritage Foundations' Jonathan Butcher and Mike Gonzales write in their study, 'The New Intolerance, and Its Grip on America', that it promotes, among other things:
* The Marxist analysis of society made up of categories of oppressors and oppressed; (emphasis my own)
* The idea that the oppressed impede revolution when they adhere to the cultural beliefs of their oppressors--- and must be put through re-education sessions;
*The concomitant need to dismantle all societal norms through relentless criticism; and
*the replacement of all systems of power and even the descriptions of those systems with a worldview that describe only oppressors and the oppressed"
Mark sums up --"Far from being merely esoteric academic exercises, these philosophies have real-life consequences"
Mark also states --- "in his book 'Intellectuals and Society', Dr. Thomas Sowell, author, scholar, and professor denounce the entire multicultural identity politics movement." This from a onetime Marxist sympathizer he is now a renowned conservative economist with many economic books to his credit.
It also seems that these multicultural theories and CRT have found their way into Progressive Politics as well as Colleges, Universities, and now K-12 classrooms.
It is my view that this multiculturalism and CRT are not bringing our citizens together but cruelly separating the races. Our young children do not need to be taught that they are oppressors or oppressed, but that they are all born to the American Dream and are all God's children. Their innocence must be protected. As our Declaration Of Independence states "all men are created equal". Thus equality is a political term that is basically Marxist in view.
They say that what is right is wrong, and what is wrong is right; that black is white and white is black; bitter is sweet and sweet is bitter.
