The hypocrisy of Critical Race Theory is baldly obvious, but nowhere more so than when it comes from white proponents – who, by the way, seem to make up the majority of CRT supporters. It seems that white people are the ones making the bulk of accusations about systemic racism even as they occupy all the positions of power in “the system” but here we are.
A social media post from Brandeis University assistant Dean Kate Slater brought this hypocrisy into full clarity this week. Slater took to the internet to blast white people for their inherent and unavoidable racism. She even went so far as to say she despises her own “whiteness.” Although she’s since locked her account to avoid further scrutiny, The New York Post captured and reported on the most egregious parts of her screed. I feel compelled to break down the snippets. CRT worshippers bang on repeatedly about the need to hold the racism of whiteness to account, but are rarely asked to be held accountable for their own remarks. If you’re all in on CRT, then go all in. Take it to its logical conclusion.
“Yes, all white people are racist in that all white people have been conditioned in a society where one’s racial identity determines life experiences/outcomes and whiteness is the norm and default.”
