Critical Race Theory is Marxist and divisive

Regarding the July 31 Herald Forum column by Ken W. White regarding Critical Race Theory, and his opinion that CRT should be taught in schools. CRT is not a new concept, it is a divisive Marxist philosophy and one of the core principles of Marxist ideology that dates back over a century. CRT promotes class separation into oppressed and oppressor, it teaches racial shame and the need for racial retribution. CRT runs counter to racial harmony and a peaceful society.

CRT is a stepping stone to violence and efforts to destroy our great nation. Prominent proponents of CRT include the demented likes of German philosopher Herbert Marcuse, and more recently Robin DiAngelo and Ibram X. Kendi. And of course the grand poobah of this lunacy, Karl Marx himself. CRT must be rejected by all decent patriotic Americans. Ken W. White would do well to read “Intellectuals and Society” by Thomas Sowell, or “American Marxism” by Mark Levin for details regarding this poisonous “theory.”
