Critical Race Theory has folks all riled up, often for the wrong reasons — so here’s a breakdown of what it is, what it isn’t and where it should be applied … courtesy of Michael Eric Dyson.
The esteemed academic and author did a PSA of sorts with us Monday on “TMZ Live” over this hot-button issue that is quite literally swinging elections, as we just saw in the Virginia gubernatorial race a week ago. The problem — folks seem to be misinformed about it.
You can find any number of interviews where people who claim to hate CRT can’t actually articulate what it is. That … or they think it all boils down to making white kids feel guilty as inborn oppressors/racists — and pegging Black kids as perpetual victims, even today.
