All the time I have studied CRT, I understood it to cover quite a few topics.
Mainly race issues, LBGQT+, feminism etc…
Now people are trying to tell me, my understanding is completely wrong.
They say, CRT has nothing at all to do with race, LBGQT+ feminism etc..
They say that CRT is just a starting point, of which someone can take issues.
They go onto say, that it can be taken in a good direction, or a bad direction.
But the problem is not CRT.

What is your understanding?

I have yet to see people talk about CRT, in a way that does not get into things like these.
When Churches embrace the CRT, they end up going against many of their core doctrines.

I'll make this CRT extremely easy to understand:

1. White: (caucasian) BAD

2. Non-White: (victims of Whites) GOOD

That is my understanding in very simple terms.
Also my understanding is that “Intersectionality” could be called
the fruit of CRT.

[quote]Intersectionality If Derrick Bell is the father of CRT, then he is the grandfather of Intersectionality. The idea was popularized by Bell’s Harvard Law School protege, Kimberlé Crenshaw, and is best summed up in her two seminal papers: “Demarginalizing the Intersection of Race and Sex: A Black Feminist Critique of Antidiscrimination Doctrine, Feminist Theory and Antiracist Politics,” published in 1989, and “Mapping the Margins: Intersectionality, Identity Politics, and Violence Against Women of Color,” published in 1991. I offer the full titles as they give a glimpse into Crenshaw’s worldview. Put simply, Intersectionality is about the multiple layers of oppression minorities suffer. For instance, if a black person has one layer of oppression, a black woman has two, a black lesbian woman has three, etc. The Encyclopedia of Diversity and Social Justice offers a helpful summary: Our experiences of the social world are shaped by our ethnicity, race, social class, gender identity, sexual orientation, and numerous other facets of social stratification. Some social locations afford privilege (e.g., being white) while others are oppressive (e.g., being poor). These various aspects of social inequality do not operate independently of each other; they interact to create interrelated systems of oppression and domination. The concept of intersectionality refers to how these

CRT in my view refuses to judge people by the content of their character, as MLK famously suggested we might do. It insists that race, gender, "gender identity," and various other factors should be used instead.

It is toxic, and it consciously promotes division rather than healing.

While not strictly part of Marxism, its proponents are usually Marxists and vice versa, and, hopefully, I don't need to explain to anyone here why Marxism and Christianity are fundamentally incompatible.

I see the whole far-left wing in the Western world as basically a collection of people who, more intensely than even the average person, hate everything God loves, and love everything God hates.

If CRT is not about race, then why call it the Critical Race Theory? It's about destroying western civilization by making it evil.

Critical Race Theory
