Donna Brazile trumpets a cliche:
As we celebrate our precious freedom, it’s important that we use it to look honestly at American history—much of it good, but some of it immoral and horrific. That includes the enslavement of Africans and their descendants and the systemic racism against black people that persists today.
Ms. Brazile seems to believe that critical race theory is essential to looking “honestly at American history.” Regrettably, she doesn’t explain why or how.
I’d like to know what we get from CRT that we do not get from other sources. What is its unique or merely special contribution to understanding American history?
