Critical Race Theory, or CRT, is a theoretical and interpretive mode that examines the appearance of race and racism across dominant cultural modes of expression. In adopting this approach, CRT scholars attempt to understand how victims of systemic racism are affected by cultural perceptions of race and how they are able to represent themselves to counter prejudice.
So how does Critical Race Theory work in the real world? How does it compare to a worldview like the Christian world view? Today on Educate For Life, Kevin has as his guest, Dr. Joe Miller. He has almost a decade of experience as a teacher and administrator in Christian higher education. He has a diverse educational background and 20+ years of pastoral experience. He has authored multiple books and journal articles on topics such as church construction, leadership, history, and biblical theology.
Understanding Critical Race Theory is crucial to understanding current events in the United States and around the world. According to CRT, only the minority truly understands the nature of race and oppression. The systems in place are forms of oppression and must be overthrown because they are inherently racist. Even the use of logic is a form of oppression.
