A book display with "woke" works on critical race theory

Critical Race Theory (CRT; also known as Race Marxism) is a race denialist variant of critical theory which views races as only being social constructs. CRT began in the United States in the early 1980s. Instead of objective and academic racial thought, CRT mainly teaches that white people are inherently and irredeemably racist. Many parents have protested against critical race theory being taught in public schools.

CRT is an explicit plot by communists to destroy Europeans (whites), very thinly veiled under the mask of a pseudo-intellectual study discipline. While CRT is simply the open expression of the true aims of communism in general, it is unusual in that it is completely unnuanced and explicit in its goals. Technically part of the New Left and a branch of Cultural Marxism, it was initiated by the Frankfurt School.

CRT is a far more dangerous and one-sided attack on the entire range of standards for history, literature and social studies — and on America's fundamental principles of equal treatment under law and outcomes determined by "the content of character" rather than the color of one's skin. [...] The proposed CRT-influenced state history standards literally dropped any mention of the actual events, causes or results of the Revolutionary War, the Civil War or World Wars I and II, except in as far as the wars affected Blacks or other minorities, and omitted the Holocaust altogether. Schoolchildren in several Minnesota school districts report that all they are currently taught about World War II is that that's when America bombed Japan and killed children. They learn that George Washington was a bad man who owned slaves. Students of Hispanic heritage are told they are "victims" and white students that they are "oppressors." Students are told that it's right to treat people differently based on skin color. In fact, CRT's principal "theorist," Ibram X. Kendi, is clear on this point: "The only remedy to racist discrimination is anti-racist discrimination," he has written. "The only remedy to past discrimination is present discrimination. The only remedy to present discrimination is future discrimination." This is not a corrective to some mythical white supremacist historical narrative that hasn't existed for at least two generations. Nor is CRT based on "diversity" or "inclusion" principles. It is itself a racist creed, derived from the Marxist class conflict model, which seeks to pit Black against white and each against all. It is identity politics gone rogue, dividing Americans based on race and national origin and caricaturing American history like a Soviet-era cartoon. CRT (or whatever proponents are calling it this week) seeks to delete any teaching about the advances of human liberty heralded by the Declaration of Independence and Constitution, "systematically" advanced by the abolition of slavery and the expansion of voting rights, ultimately to all, by the equal treatment of new states and of immigrants, by an unprecedented economic betterment for all classes. It ignores the contributions and progress of all Americans symbolized by the election of Irish, Italian and Hispanic Americans, Catholics, Jews and Black people as governors, senators and presidents. – Douglas P. Seaton, president of the Upper Midwest Law Center[1][2]

  • Make no mistake about it, we intend to keep bashing the dead white males, and the live ones, and the females, too, until the social construct known as ‘the white race’ is destroyed. Not ‘deconstructed’ but destroyed.Noel Ignatiev, Race Traitor
  • Critical Race Theory is one of the hottest and most controversial topics in the world today, but what is it, really? Rightly understood, Critical Race Theory is a reinvention of an older, terrible idea, Marxism, using race "as the central construct for understanding inequality" in place of economic class. That is, Critical Race Theory is Race Marxism. The evidence of this claim is so overwhelming upon even casual examination that it is a shock that it isn't immediately plain to everyone who encounters it. Therefore, this book by James Lindsay, the leading investigator of Critical Race Theory, serves less to make the case that Critical Race Theory is Race Marxism and more to serve as a long permission slip to the public to call Critical Race Theory what it plainly is. – James Lindsay[3]
