Before we start, I would like to acknowledge the platform we are debating upon was constructed upon the bodies of the government-oppressed indigenous DARPA peoples, and later stolen from the AlGore Innerwebz tribe…
CRT: Originally an Academic Theory, now a Convenient Label
Get three words out about “CRT in schools” and swarms of lefties appear telling you “that’s not CRT!” Well, of course it’s not, strictly speaking, but its in the common parlance now as shorthand for a complex topic, like ‘pop music’ or ‘Sci-fi.’ Get over it. Arguing the point further is bald-faced obfuscation.
Chris Rufo, and How to Search for Examples of CRT in Schools
Next, these clever lefties feign ignorance: Oh yeah! Can you give us some examples? As if they’ve never heard of Chris Rufo, one more object of leftwing rage in the ever proliferating forest of progressive hate totems.

It’s a Debate, People
Yahoogle Chris Rufo CRT and top of the list will be articles critical of him, accusing him of ‘inventing a crisis’ or ‘creating a moral panic’ out of nothing. Keep going down the search results and you will also find his material and articles supporting his work. This is all good and contributes to the debate.
For the record, I have no issue with CRT. I read the book.
Yahoogle this: ‘crt in schools examples‘
It will return good articles like this:
Examples of Critical Race Theory in Schools
Here is an excellent article that takes a neutral, explanatory approach:
Ed Week: What is CRT and Why is it Under Attack?
The author sums up the criticism in this neutral and succinct passage:
Critics charge that the theory leads to negative dynamics, such as a focus on group identity over universal, shared traits; divides people into “oppressed” and “oppressor” groups; and urges intolerance.
The author then gives a quick justification of the CRT position:
The theory says that racism is part of everyday life, so people—white or nonwhite—who don’t intend to be racist can nevertheless make choices that fuel racism.
Of all the links I provide, if you can only read one, I recommend the Ed Week one.
The Infamous Florida Law
ABC News said it, so every leftwinger now repeats it:
A new bill in Florida would ban public schools and private businesses from making people feel “discomfort” when being taught about racial discrimination in U.S. history.
Cute propaganda, but that’s not what the law says. ABC’s statement–and subsequent leftwing parroting it–is a deliberate smear and a witting and purposeful mischaracterization. Nothing in that bill prohibits teaching anything that may make people feel discomfort.
What is does say is, schools and workplaces may not teach or tell someone that they must feel guilt because of the past actions of others. I defy anyone to prove me wrong. Here is the text of the bill signed into law by the infamous rightwing cis-gender patriarchal oppressor, Governor DeSantis: HB 7 – Text
