Let’s Talk About Critical Race Theory

And what we’re really trying to say

Yep. That’s all we’ve been taught

First off, let me say I think “critical race theory” is lousy branding, much like “defund the police.” Both terms are somewhat misleading about the end goal. Moreover, they are off-putting to the very people we need to reach, defeating the purpose of hoisting either banner.




At Politically Speaking, we come together to share our views on politics and society. We are a proud supporter of equality and fair treatment for all people. We stand against racism and the oppression of people of color. Here at Politically Speaking, when we see, we speak!
