What makes the Critical Race Theory taught in schools so critical among politicians these days?

It’s pretty much not taught in any schools…
It’s a phony crisis created by the Republicans to scare their base.
Any halfway honest version of US history is going to show a lot of white people doing terrible things to Native Americans, African-Americans, Mexican-Americans, and Asian-Americans.
guaranteed that 99% of people answering have *no idea* what “crt” really is
1. It’s not taught “in schools” it’s only taught in high level law classes.
2. Literally one guy twisted “CRT” to mean whatever they wanted it to mean in order to appeal to the Republican base: Bigots.
It’s like the word “woke”, it doesn’t mean what it used to. Now it’s just a code word for “Things I don’t like, like gays and brown people”
It’s a diversion tactic. As long as they try to scare people into worrying about imaginary threats, no one pays attention to how inept and corrupt they are.
Is it really taught nowadays not sure, and I am pretty sure here most don’t know what they are answering.
It’s not taught in public schools. It never has been. It never will be. It’s only taught at the university level, typically in law school. It is a completely manufactured crisis by the party that thrives on manufactured crises.
It’s not taught in elementary, middle, Jr high, or high schools. It’s taught in certain college curricula. Politicians who bitch about it are only showing their own ignorance.
We teach CRT to kindergarteners for the same reasons we teach them neurosurgery. Oh wait, we don’t do either of those things, and for the same reasons.
It’s not taught in schools. That’s the problem. It’s all a right wing myth to create anger and ignorance
They just feel threatened, its fear to something they always dont fully understand. It’s a distraction and they are taking the bait and its working. Let them.
“Politicians”? I believe you mean “trumpanzees.”
Idk, probably the fact that Hector is going to be running 3 Honda Civics with spoon engines. And on top of that, he just went into Harry’s, and he ordered 3 T66 turbos, with NOS and a Motec exhaust.
It is republican cancel culture. The one thing that republicans loathe more than brown people is reality. That is why they have to retreat to conspiracy theory; because their bullshit doesn’t align with reality.
‘Critical theory’ is one of the many theories of how racism works.
I think It’s useful to distinguish here how ‘teaching’ works in physical sciences vs social sciences.
In physical sciences, you get taught mostly facts that all scientists agree on.
In social sciences, you get taught a wide variety of competing theories and are left to decide for yourself which ones to believe.
If a school says it is teaching critical race theory, then it’s not going to be telling kids that the theory is a fact.
It will just be telling them what the theory is, which academics believe in it, and then asking them to give their own opinions on it.
Objection to the teaching of critical race theory is simple censorship. Not wanting your own views to be challenged.
That people are against indoctrination.
I’ve heard that it’s being taught to small kits by one side, and that it’s sometimes taught in academic by the other side, so it kinda sounds like just another buzzword used to gain attention and certain reactions.
Racist politicians don’t really want people to know they are racist.
Ever notice that people are racially focused these days and use it as a shutdown tactic in arguments? Notice the number of people who think self-flogging actually helps anyone else?
But no…tell children they’re either oppressed or oppressors even though they’re…well…children.
People are supposed to just be people. The far left is actively pissing on MLK’s dream by promoting racial division. The only one on the left with the balls to point it out and stand up against it is Bill Maher.
Well it’s ironically racist towards white people but I haven’t actually heard about it being taught in a single school so idk
It teaches race-based guilt and race-based compensations. It is fundamentally misguided because it reduces everything to race.
Its a hot topic that has no true value, so it’s easy to boast about doing something to stop it. Huckabee’s first action as governor, for example, was to ban teaching CRT in public schools. It isnt taught in any public schools in her state. So she literally accomplished nothing, but still looks good to her demographic.
It’s not taught in any school below law school. Full stop.
It’s not even taught in law school. Rather, It’s a way of characterizing the white dominated justice system with an eye to understanding how the institutional systems of justice in the US may have a thumb on the scale against people of color. Any child can validate that point of view if they were willing to stop and think about it.
CRT is just a boogie man, just like “woke” or “trans book parties” or any number of things that the Republican Party invokes to reinforce the wild desperation of their acolytes.
It’s not taught in schools.
Republican politicians run on fear mongering and misrepresentation, and this is just the most recent example of that.
It is not “politicians these days”; this is not some “both sides” bullshit – it is pure -republican- bullshit.
Critical race theory are the three things that schools have a problem with when they don’t fully understand them.
One video I watched on this topic said the problem isn’t with teaching it as a theory. It can be taught along with other theories.
The problem they had with it was it was being pushed as the truth.
I don’t really know much else about it myself, so don’t have much opinion one way or the other.
It’s another wedge issue like guns and abortion. Divide and conquer.
The guy who started the whole idea of attacking CRT [blatantly admitted](https://mobile.twitter.com/realchrisrufo/status/1371540368714428416) it is all a tactic to vilify and twist the meaning of the term to attack anything conservatives don’t like. The attacks in CRT have absolutely nothing to do with actual CRT.
It’s to make them feel bad about their race even though this shit happened over 3 generations ago
Well the fact that it’s not taught in schools might be one
It’s graduate-level material not taught in public schools. It’s a manufactured crisis for their white supremacist base.
I think the political theater of this has to do with school choice
This issue along with a handful of others have vastly raised support for school choice and it has reached super majority levels of support within the United States not just amongst the general population but amongst Republicans independent and Democrats all have super majority support for it at this point
It’s only taught in law schools. This is a graduate level curriculum that’s not taught to everyone but has been meaning changed to mean anything in lower levels that is critical of the white race and benefiting to minority races.
It’s a graduate level topic involving high level of analysis of entire systems across the social spectrum, it’s a distraction effort in order to obfuscate the message.
they need the votes , so they pander to those who want something .
CRT is literally just black history, which the white descendants of the confederates really don’t like because they never accepted they lost civil in their hearts and see it as a god given right for people to enslave other people.
They say it’s not but when you peel back the layers of their bullcrap, listen to their actions over their words, and study their history, that’s what it boils down to.
People feel like they are not racist, that no one has been racist sence the 60s, and that they should not have to feel like they got something for free that people of color did not get. Basically they are ass holes and wrong about pretty much everything.
They threw it out there, and their white supremacist followers responded, so they keep at it.
It’s bullshit and lies and you’re a sucker for buying into it
It’s not critical anymore. It has become a sound bite.
I`m a gender affirming queer guy with mental health issues and even I call bullshit. Which is saying something.
I do not need instruction on who to understand next. Please back all the fucking way off.
Remember how Boys 2 Men was just ver at some point? That’s how I feel about last years hippies acting like they invented weird and pants having a conniption about the inhumanity du jour.
I’m gonna be a no. I can truly not.
