I’ve never read CRT and never taken a class on it. I only know about it through social media, so I’m sure my knowledge of it isn’t very accurate. However, for many decades, I’ve searched American history to learn about race, how the concept developed, and how it was used to justify atrocities. I’ve also crossed racial lines as a White man and reached out to many Black people in friendship and humility to listen and hear what they have to say.
Telling the truth about the atrocities of slavery and Jim Crow is neither liberal or conservative. It’s factual. The part of Critical Race Theory that tells the truth about history and its impact on the present deserves to be heard, not hidden.
I believe in telling the truth with kindness and compassion to all. Here’s my attempt to do that: Off the RACE Track–From Color-Blind To Color-Kind.
Immediately after posting this, I went to Twitter. Then I saw a prenatal drawing of a black person and I’m astonished that I’ve never seen one before. Don’t fetuses come in all colors?
