Critical Race Theory: What It Is and How to Fight It
Critical race theory is an academic discipline, formulated in the 1990s, built on the intellectual framework of identity-based Marxism. Relegated for many years to universities and obscure academic journals, over the past decade it has increasingly become the default ideology in our public institutions. It has been injected into government agencies, public school systems, teacher training programs, and corporate human resources departments in the form of diversity training programs, human resources modules, public policy frameworks, and school curricula. read more

What’s the first thing that popped into your head when you read this articles title? More than likely it was something like the fraternity chant from those dopes at SAE fraternity in Oklahoma, or something similar.
It’s a shame, but that’s how we’ve been conditioned to think. Even we conservatives fall prey to this knee-jerk pattern.
Yet the reality is becoming the exact opposite – on the streets and in the Universities. The fraternity incident received national, if not international attention and condemnation, which it should have. It was ignorant and vile and there is no place in any society for that. It also received that level of condemnation because the idiot kids were white.
But more and more we hear and see blacks voluntarily segregating themselves from the rest of society. They too are being conditioned to think that anything white is automatically bad and therefore repressive.
A shining example of this conditioning was an incident that occurred just weeks ago and to our north at Ryerson University in Toronto, Canada. Ryerson is, as are most universities, a place of diversity. They celebrate this diversity with a variety of clubs and groups the young impressionable student body may join. Groups like the “Centre for Women and Trans People,” “RyePRIDE,” the “Trans Collective,” and the “Racialised Students’ Collective.”
The incident I just spoke of involved the Racialised Students’ Collective and a couple of first year journalism students that were given an class assignment to attend and report on a public gathering at the University. That sounds easy enough. read more
