    Wow, thank you for the non-Kekistanian response. I take Dr. Lindsay's opinions with a grain of salt. His opinions are not even handed or nonpartisan.
    What he calls "a highly obscure academic theory" called Critical Race Theory has been taken up by the right as this seasons boogeyman. Something to get the masses work up over. Fear and hate seem to be the great motivator.

    You're just defending it because people you perceive to be on the opposite side from you are trashing it.

    Do you want to make everything in US versus them arguments and I think that's because your knowledge is weak.

    And very effectively taken up, too.The left has overplayed its hand in the indoctrination of school children and now the great unwashed hoi poloi are fighting back.

    As your source admits it is (or was) "a highly obscure academic theory", that is, until Tucker got ahold of it last fall and began bloviating about it. It became a symbol of what the right sees as the attack of the left to indoctrinate children. It is not taught in schools but that doesn't matter to the right. They just want to save the children from "indoctrination" by bringing up the very issues they wish to suppress and opening them up for debate, which will in turn force people to exam CRT and maybe even agree with it.

    No, it was an obscure academic theory until Ibram X. Kendi and Robin D'Angelo popularized it to attack Whiteness and the bizarre mass psychosis triggered by George Floyd caused it to flood every nook and cranny of our society, including schools. Rufo and Carlson simply reported on it. The left became upset because their nefarious plans were exposed.

    Well boo, hoo.

    Nope, Ma and Pa Kettle (as I) have never heard of Kendi and D'Angelo, but once Tucker pronounced CRT "evil" it's a go. The mass psychosis triggered by the Tuck spreads throughout the right-wingers. who fear their pallor will diminish their social standing somehow caused by the nefarious left-wing conspiracy..

    Isn't that what you want? To diminish the social standing of White people?

    Don't be silly, parity no matter the race is the goal.

    Which means you have to get rid of White Privilege=> a diminution of White social status.

    Yes, some people of that "bent" can view it in a negative light rather than humans fairly treating each other.

    Shrug. Many people consider meritocracy to be fair.

    Yes, if there is level playing field. Am I right?

    The woke strategy is to get rid of the playing field. No more SAT's, for instance.

    Today, the SAT is considered the primary gauge for students’ ability to succeed in college. However, this can clearly be seen as untrue. The SAT has no correlation between the GPA and graduation rate of college students, fails to measure skills that indicate better success in college, is mastered by memorization over intellect and favors the rich over the poor. https://highschool.latimes.com/port...hy-the-sat-is-useless-for-college-admissions/

    LOL! if there is no correlation between SAT and GPA then it means that the SAT is working well for college admissions. The most selective colleges have the most difficult courses and the least selective have the easiest. So the SAT is selecting the best students for the most difficult courses, the ones the less gifted (low SAT) couldn't pass. If The SAT were a random number, the GPA and drop out rates for the most selective colleges would be much higher.

    Must be why universities are making SATs optional. Having the best SAT tutors money can buy and being able to take it as many times as you want doesn't flatten the playing field.

    They are making SATs optional because they are folding to the woke agenda. AA granted let in Blacks with lower SAT scores than Whites or Asians. The results? Blacks dropping out and being ranked at the bottom.

    No matter the race, 89% of low-income first-generation students drop out, which is four times higher than second-generation students. The top reason is financial.

    Well he is arguing that Jews are overall superior because of IQ. I guess that’s what makes a race superior. I don’t know who set the rules for racial superiority, but whoever has the highest IQ in the world must be a the most superior, genetically pure, and advanced super-human to behold.

    If they are the smartest they don't show it. Especially my neurosurgeon who is a Jew.
