Critical Race Theory, and today.

Reader comment on item: This Time, the Far-Left Surge Might Succeed

Submitted by Robert (United States), Jun 26, 2021 at 15:07

What seems to be absent here is the emergence of People of Color, as in "Black Lives Matter" under the alleged "Intellectual Framework" of CRITICAL RACE THEORY. In the 1960's Progressives were essential the spoiled "WHITE" brats of the spoiled Post-World War II Boom. The were the Beat Generation followed by the Beatniks and Hippies. But now, post-President Barack Obama we have the economically empowered African-American "Woke" Generation.

More or less, the "Bible" of this movement is a 1995 quasi-Marxist text as follows:

"Critical Race Theory: The Key Writings that Formed the Movement" with a Forward by Cornel West, by Kimberle Crenshaw (Editor), Neil Gotanda (Editor), Gary Peller (Editor), Kendall Thomas (Editor). But for its value it's still too expensive buy today I think ($31).
