LINK An interesting article on CRT: Eight Big Reasons Critical Race Theory Is Terrible for Dealing with Racism - New Discourses

Any thoughts on the following? Any counterargument will be interesting.

Just eight of the biggest problems with the entire Critical Race Theory approach

  1. Believes racism is present in every aspect of life, every relationship, and every interaction and therefore has its advocates look for it everywhere

  2. Relies upon “interest convergence” (white people only give black people opportunities and freedoms when it is also in their own interests) and therefore doesn’t trust any attempt to make racism better

  3. Is against free societies and wants to dismantle them and replace them with something its advocates control

  4. Only treats race issues as “socially constructed groups,” so there are no individuals in Critical Race Theory

  5. Believes science, reason, and evidence are a “white” way of knowing and that storytelling and lived experience is a “black” alternative, which hurts everyone, especially black people

  6. Rejects all potential alternatives, like colorblindness, as forms of racism, making itself the only allowable game in town (which is totalitarian)

  7. Acts like anyone who disagrees with it must do so for racist and white supremacist reasons, even if those people are black (which is also totalitarian)

  8. Cannot be satisfied, so it becomes a kind of activist black hole that threatens to destroy everything it is introduced into

This reminds me of an old woman, 85 years, who in conversation told me her opinion of the federal election about to take place. The more socialist party, the NDP, was making headway in opinion polls and she told me that their leader was just a "shit disturber". "He comes into town, listens to people doing all the complaining and then tells them how much he supports their ideas and so gets their votes." In this time of chaos, in a vacuum of better ideas, anyone with an ax to grind, gets out in public and looks to get more political power while they can.

Hello Scott. There is some truth in there.

Instead of ranting or getting outraged about BLM activists, the list helps me understand where they come from.
