Description

Many liberals and progressives have been circling the wagons defending Critical Race Theory as a part of the new “Culture War.” The desire to defend these ideas stems from the reactionary right wing using Critical Race Theory as the new boogie man that is harming the narrative of American Exceptionalism conservatives so desperately cling to. In this episode we will discuss the assertions of Critical Race Theory and inquire: Do these theories challenge capitalism and wealth hierarchies? Or is this simply a plea for more liberal anti racism that seeks to diversify the ruling class as the overall pie shrinks for the rest of the nation?
