Defining Critical Race Theory
Like postmodernism twenty years ago, terms like CRT, intersectionality and wokeness are being disagreed on fiercely in both Christian and mainstream circles, yet often (although not always) people are talking about strikingly different things. I can’t be sure, but it seems to me that Neil might agree with large parts of CRT if it was defined by Rasool, and Rasool might disagree with large parts of it if it was defined by Neil. My experience suggests that is frequently true in this discussion, and that before wading in to cheer or condemn something, we first need to be clear on exactly what it is. This conversation helpfully illustrates why.
