The pundits of Critical Race Theory (CRT) will tell you (in unison) that “the Critical race theory is an academic movement made up of civil-rights scholars and activists in the United States who seek to critically examine the law as it intersects with issues of race, and to challenge mainstream liberal approaches to racial justice.”
The Encyclopedia Britannica says, “Critical race theory (CRT), intellectual movement and loosely organized framework of legal analysis based on the premise that race is not a natural, biologically grounded feature of physically distinct subgroups of human beings but a socially constructed (culturally invented) category that is used to oppress and exploit people of color. Critical race theorists hold that the law and legal institutions in the United States are inherently racist insofar as they function to create and maintain social, economic, and political inequalities between whites and nonwhites, especially African Americans.”

Reading about CRT is a never ending task. Understanding what you read is even more (unnecessarily) difficult. I believe the interminable defining of CRT is intended to discourage the reader and cause him or her to throw up their hands and say, “Oh well. Whatever!” But, we cannot do that. We cannot give in. We must understand what is happening and learn to fight back!
Critical Race Theory says that racism is embeded in every institution in America. And, that everyone who is not “a person of color” (Black) has been taught to be racist and needs to be retrained in their thinking or eliminated (cancelled or removed).
NOTE: Critical Race Theory (CRT) is a deeply rooted in the Marxist doctrine of “Critical Theory”. It has been borrowed and cultivated by modern Marxists to say “If you are not ‘black’ or some other ‘minority skin color’, you are racist, and you need to be retrained or eliminated.”
The message that “anyone who does not believe in systemic racism is part of the problem” and that message, is sadly, permeating all the literature on race in America today, our school systems, the courts and our churches.
These ideas of oppression and systemic racism come from a Marxist doctrine called “critical theory.”
It is important to note that Marxism is the theory and Communism is the practical implementation of Marxism. Communism has never worked as advertised. It is an inhumane, murderous scheme to enrich a few at the cost of hundreds of millions of lives.
Examples of the viral spread of this lie can be found in Buffalo, New York, the school district’s “Emancipation Curriculum” told children that “all white people play a part in perpetuating systemic racism.”
Another example is at the National Museum of African-American History and Culture, a Smithsonian institution funded by taxpayers. Officials released a document last year intended for use in schools that claimed ideas such as “hard work is the key to success” and that trying to “be polite” are evidence of an oppressive society.
Contemporary Marxists claim that Karl Marx “was well aware of the centrality of race under capitalism”. Even though Marx never wrote on the question of slavery and its racial impact in societies, he did write about America from his own egocentric and psychopathic point of view:
According to Marx: “The discovery of gold and silver in America, the extirpation, enslavement and entombment in mines of the aboriginal population, the beginning of the conquest and looting of the East Indies, the turning of Africa into a warren for the commercial hunting of Black skins, signalized the rosy dawn of the era of capitalist production.”
Although Marx never personally witnessed anything of what he wrote about regarding America, he found it expedient to ‘fill in his necessary blanks to make his points. He wrote:
“Direct slavery is just as much the pivot of bourgeois industry as machinery, credits, etc. Without slavery, you have no cotton; without cotton you have no modern industry. It is slavery that has given the colonies their value; it is the colonies that have created world trade, and it is world trade that is the pre-condition of large-scale industry. Thus, slavery is an economic category of the greatest importance.
Without slavery North America, the most progressive of countries, would be transformed into a patriarchal country. Wipe out North America from the map of the world, and you will have anarchy–the complete decay of modern commerce and civilization. Cause slavery to disappear, and you will have wiped America off the map of nations. Thus, slavery, because it is an economic category, has always existed among the institutions of the peoples. Modern nations have been able only to disguise slavery in their own countries, but they have imposed it without disguise upon the New World.”
Thus, Marx proposed a fundamentally flawed and a gross misunderstanding of the centrality of slave labor in the national and international economy.
But what about race? Marx never addressed race. Let me repeat: Karl Marx never addressed race. His supporters and adherents state unequivocally that Marx addressed race, but with the implied disclaimer, “What Marx meant to say” – even though he never said it. And, for a man to write as prolifically as Marx, to never have mentioned a matter simply means it was not relevant in his thinking.
So, using the fundamental tenant of the Critical Race Theory, KARL MARX WAS PROFOUNDLY RACIST, himself. In fact, Marx used the ‘underprivileged’, the ‘oppressed masses’ for his own ends from the beginning.
Is CRT (Critical Race Theory), rooted in Marxism? Yes. Absolutely. But, it is nothing more than another fabrication of The Beast and the Dragon of the Bible, this thinly veiled “New Marxism” has come only to steal, kill and destroy!.
An article by Christopher F. Rufo, founder and director of Battlefront, A public policy research center, explains Critical Race Theory, its dangers and how to fight it. https://imprimis.hillsdale.edu/critical-race-theory-fight/
(This is an excellent article, and gives us an idea of how to respond, how to fight the manifest evil known as “CRT”. But, it also falls short of and fails miserably at giving us a grassroots remedy. None of us can muster up a “PhD Quality dissertation” to fight with. We need a simple and powerful method. I have listed some links to additional articles which will help can you find methods that will work.)
