Legislation to prohibit the teaching of historically accurate systemic racism is a perfect example of the systemic racism it tries to deny.
Just as Qonservatives could not understand a long-range term like “global warming,” such that we had to use a term like “climate change” that would incorporate the short-term obvious fluctuations that even they could see, maybe instead of the term “critical race theory” that is obviously beyond the comprehension capabilities of their narrow minds, we should use a simpler term that even they can understand.
Instead of using the term “Critical Race Theory,” perhaps call it “Comprehensive Objective Multiple-Perspective History” that fills in important missing gaps that are too often omitted because some overly-sensitive people don’t want to include a full, honest study of history, and present it fully from the perspectives of all those who were a part of it and not just the dominant culture,.
Critical Theory refers to the analytical process of looking at an issue from a wide variety of perspectives, and testing the hypothesis against a full spectrum of all available evidence. When applied to the subject of the history of race relations, Critical RACE Theory just means examining the history through the ranges of all those affected, not just the dominant culture.
Any honest study of History is SUPPOSED to make people uncomfortable.
If your study of history doesn’t sometimes make you squirm, then maybe what you’re studying is not really “history.”
