WASHINGTON -- At a time that our nation's media spotlights race and oppression, Americans hear about Critical Race Theory and wonder why anyone would oppose a critical look at racial turmoil.
But Marc Little, a pastor and attorney, explains that CRT is not what it looks like. In a national column published at Townhall, Marc Little wrote "To those who believe Critical Race Theory is a vehicle to discuss race in America, they mistake the goal of CRT, which has little, if anything, to do with race."
Little, who is the Executive Director of CURE America Action that is headquartered in Washington, DC, which advocates for public policy with the messages of Christianity, Capitalism, and the Constitution across the nation, remarked that the academic theory rejects our founding principles. In his column, Little said "It demands equality in outcomes or worse, it demands to invert economic realities."
Also, Little describes how the theory attempts to confront power structures in the country by dividing America into two categories: Oppressor and the Oppressed.
This is known as "intersectionality" and was introduced by Kimberly Crenshaw in 1989. The Oppressor is defined as white, male, heterosexual, cis gendered, (naturally born male), able-bodied and native born. The Oppressed are ranked by degrees of "oppression." If you are black, you are oppressed. If you are black and gay, you are more oppressed. If you are black, gay, and female, you have an even greater degree of oppression. And so on. The point being, the more oppressed one is, the more moral authority one has which is accompanied by the least amount of responsibility. And to the Oppressor, you gain moral authority by surrendering your power to the oppressed. This is called being "woke" and purports to accomplish the goal to reverse the so-called privilege held by the "white man." It is an effort to force so-called equality.
Little warns Americans, especially Christians, that there cannot be meaningful discussion about race by threatening white men to surrender their achievements regardless of how history gave them a head start. Instead, Little said the "nonsensical, unproven, and unbiblical" Critical Race Theory should be rejected as a distraction. "The intelligentsia are more the problem than the solution," Little wrote.
