Welcome to another episode of Conversations with Coleman. My guest today requires a longer than normal preamble. I’m speaking with Charles Murray, who is a Political Scientist, Writer, and W.H. Brady scholar at the American Enterprise Institute. Murray has been a controversial figure throughout his whole career, but […]
On The Jacobin Show, Jen Pan and Paul Prescod discuss how the shortcomings of the popular text “White Supremacy Culture” by Kenneth Jones and Tema Okun have permeated society and led to some reactionary, culturally essentialist ideas.
By Geoff Russ Yesterday | TheTyee.ca This alienation didn’t come from nowhere. And it won’t be going away anytime soon. Don’t be surprised that many Indigenous people do not like Canada. Do not be shocked that many actively reject it, and won’t cease to do so in the future as […]

Sen. Josh Hawley has slammed the writings of Ibram X. Kendi, a prominent anti-racism scholar. Ibram X. Kendi explains how he is not a scholar of Critical Race Theory, and that in his book ‘How to Be an Antiracist,’ ‘I make the case that we shouldn’t believe that […]
By David Miguel Gray The Conversation U.S. Rep. Jim Banks of Indiana sent a letter to fellow Republicans on June 24, 2021, stating: “As Republicans, we reject the racial essentialism that critical race theory teaches … that our institutions are racist and need to be destroyed from the ground up.” […]
One of the most interesting things about this article is that it provides another bit of evidence that many of the traditional lines of social conflict are no longer predictable indicators of where someone will be on controversial topics. A sample quote from the article: “Parents have revolted […]
By Matt Taibbi Suburban America’s self-proclaimed racial oracle returns with a monumentally oblivious sequel to “White Fragility.” “The ideology of individualism is dependent on a denial of the past as relevant to the present… Individualism denies the significance of race.” — Robin DiAngelo “Individualism is for f*gs.” — […]
Notice how persons of different ethnic backgrounds are on different sides of this issue. This is not a white/black or majority/minority issue. The Blue Tribe and Red Tribe error when they assume every minority is on the “left” and every WASPish white is on the “right.” Team Rising […]
The irony is that CRT threatens to re-segregate America, the very thing that the Oak Park citizens of the 1960s fought against.

Interesting. In the future, more and more new tribes will emerge based on new forms of identity.
BBC Two more Catholic churches burned down in indigenous communities in western Canada early on Saturday. The fires at St Ann’s Church and the Chopaka Church began within an hour of each other in British Columbia. Officers said both buildings were completely destroyed, and they were treating the […]
A debate on CRT from about six months ago. Critical race theory, as both an analytical framework and a movement, is pulling hard at the strands of racism that are supposedly woven into the very fabric of America. For critical race theorists, injustices are ubiquitous, entrenched in every […]
One thing I’ve increasingly noticed over time is that race is not necessarily a dividing line or accurate indicator of what a person’s views on racial politics will be. Research indicates that white liberals and leftists are to the left of the “average” black opinion on race issues. […]
The source for this piece is a bit sketchy but it’s an interesting illustration of why I do not think race/ethnicity (or social class) is the primary dividing line in present-day US tribal/sectarian conflict. By Chloee Cooper and Daryle Lamont Jenkins, Political Research Associates August 4, 2018, the […]
This makes for an interesting comparison/contrast. James Lindsay offers a highly negative critique of critical race theory in this interview with Tom Woods, while the meme below offers a more sympathetic explanation/interpretation. James Lindsay joins Tom Woods to discuss what Critical Race Theory is, what its flaws are, […]
This commentary is pretty good. The back and forth between these two guys is a good discussion of this topic. Robby Soave breaks down the Critical Race Theory debate.
From a black conservative law professor’s perspective. BY ELLA KIETLINSKA AND JOSHUA PHILIPP Epoch Times Critical Race Theory training, which pressures people not to say certain things, take a certain stance, or forces them into some segregated settings, may infringe on people’s constitutional rights and even violate civil rights laws, said […]
By Alana Semuels, Time The integration battles of the Civil Rights era happened more than half a century ago, but the U.S. is getting more, not less, segregated, as that past recedes. More than 80% of large metropolitan areas in the United States were more segregated in 2019 […]
A relatively nuanced discussion of this topic from a generally “liberal” perspective. By Stephen Sawchuck, Education Week Is “critical race theory” a way of understanding how American racism has shaped public policy, or a divisive discourse that pits people of color against white people? Liberals and conservatives are […]
I tend to think that if there is a second civil war, race will not be the primary dividing line. Americans are becoming more demographically integrated along socioeconomic, geographical, institutional, and cultural lines, but more fractured along partisan and social class lines. Tucker Carlson Today on Fox Nation […]
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 […]

A concise but excellent and entirely correct description of how the left-wing of the capitalist class approaches racial issues. The Left will often point how out the right-wing will use racism, social conservatism, invidiousness toward out-groups, etc. to distract the generally socially conservative, white working to middle classes […]

That’s a hell of a showdown. I tend to disagree with racial determinists (left or right) that race alone or racism alone explains disparities in crime rates, poverty rates, educational achievement, professional success, etc. There are too many variables that neither side of the race coin can fully […]
This is a damn good article. I think there are a number of things going on here that nearly all commentators miss. As the Thomas Piketty study recently pointed out, the “culture war” is primarily between the different factions of the elite: the traditional business/military sectors vs the […]

While it’s true that black males are 7% of the US population but commit 50% of the homicides, this data involves far less than 1% of black Americans overall, and is geographically contained to areas with high poverty rates. By Letitia Garred AnInjusticeMag A study by the U.S. […]
When you create a meme that inadvertently makes the point that “CRTs,” “SJWs,” and similar others are not so much “Marxists” as types of sectarian neo-Protestants. It’s also not surprising that black intellectuals like Derrick Bell, Kimberly Crenshaw, etc. would develop a theoretical framework like this given the […]
For the record, I generally oppose efforts to impose censorship on schools that want to teach critical race theory, just as I would oppose censorship of the teaching of intelligent design, “scientific creationism,” Marxist class theory, intersectionality, or Charles Murray’s theories on the relationship between race, class, and […]
Change the title of this to “On Having Jewishness” and the problematic aspects of this line of thinking are illustrated. This article, along with the writings of Ibram X. Kendi, is the most extreme example I have seen to date of full-blown “left-racial supremacism” entering into mainstream discourse. […]

By Robert Stark California prides itself on its diversity with race relations that are generally better than many other parts of the nation. However, California, as a beacon for diversity, does have major problems including income inequality and a massive exodus out of the state. Problems with the […]

These would seem to be more issues of poverty than race per see, although poverty and race are obviously issues that overlap. By Andis Robeznieks, American Medical Association The country’s pervasive health inequities were evidenced by a tragic tally of 74,402 excess deaths, on average, among Black people […]
By Michael Lind, Tablet The great civil rights leaders of the 1960s were right to champion universal, inclusive social programs. Americans on the left, right, and center agree that America has too much inequality. They just can’t agree on what kind of inequality to complain about. Unable to […]
