One of the better articles I’ve read here on Medium on CRT.
I have to agree it is critical thinking these conservatives are against. Their fear of questions is indeed their weakness.
Logic suggests prosperity comes from groups – regardless of skin pigmentation – working together not, from exclusion.
However, this requires one to assess things from a critical thinking point of view, not from a narrow-mindedness.
Take away or discourage critical thinking and replace it with groupthink and you have nothing but mindless robots.
I would submit that studying critical race theory is extremely important. It will help us understand how we can become a more inclusive society and eliminate racism as we know it today.
What I’m about to write will be contrary to what others are posting. Before I continue, congratulation on your promotion. You are not part of the establishment – as you have written – you once criticized.
Now you are the man. However, this is not the focus of my comments…

I do not condemn, but congrulate your boldness to challenge your congregants to question their sincerity around what they believe.
Let me be clear, I have no use for organized religion…
Great article. I have to admit I was contemplating writing something similar but got sidetracked on other projects. You’ve expressed many of the same sentiments I’ve had around the level of complaining which has emerged recently.
I ended up here by accident. I was on another platform that was mainly…
I love the smell of coffee in the morning! Who doesn’t? Waking up to a freshly brewed pot of coffee is invigorating, and what better way to start your day.
Wiping the sleep from my eyes, I immediately knew something was amiss as I walked into the kitchen. I was…
I remember it was, Sixty-seven years ago, my grandmother passed. An event I’m surprised I even remember, considering I was six years old at the time.
Family from all over came to Syracuse to bury their mother. My Uncle’s house was packed; he was holding the repast dinner. Several of…
When I was very young, my maternal grandmother died. I might have been 5 or 6 at the time. The family was at my Uncle Luther’s house, and two of my uncles got into a significant argument. Accusations and threats were flying from both while everyone stood around watching.
I read your Medium article, Eight Problems With Critical Race Theory, in anticipation of learning something new on this topic. Instead, I got a subjective and questionable analysis on a topic I wonder if you know much about., …
