    As far as I can tell, CRT says racism can be institutionalized so you don't have to have a racist in power for people to suffer from racism. Sounds possible; not likely, not unlikely, just possible. For Pete's sake, look at the stats for death sentences and how black defendents are much more likely to get a death sentence than white defendents over the same crime.

    So go ahead. Tell me why I need help.

    It's the logical conclusion to extreme leftism in the US. It all comes down to that.

    I find it amazing you could type two sentences so utterly devoid of content. Bravo sir.

    Please explain how fighting institutionalized racism is "extreme leftism". Or are you saying only the left fights racism?

    Based on the way the GOP has been acting lately, I'd say that only the left are the ones fighting racism.

    Why does Papa Obama hate white people?
