Don’t Ban CRT. Expose It.

Here’ my take on this “critical race theory” controversy. “Conservatives” (at least those of the pop-culture variety) have started using “critical race theory” as a label for anything they find ideologically objectionable. The same way they use woke, SJW, politically correct, etc. Actual CRT is something much narrower […]
