    Critical Race Theory...

    The idea that racism is so inherent in the 'system' that the system itself must be dismantled.

    Reparations...

    The idea that people who have never committed a wrong must pay off another group of people who haven't had any wrong done to them.

    So believe in reparations is radical. I dont believe in reparations but it is obviously that slavery and racism has given whites a significant advantage.

    why is so hard for conservatives admit that racism goes on. we need laws and regulations to stop racism and present equality for all.

    A black man complained about racism lol

    I guess now every black person is radical lol

    It's wrong ducks, because destroying that system also destroys the ONLY means any of us have to advance ourselves, REGARDLESS of race.

    I didn't kill Indians either. But somehow supporting reservations and all sorts of goodies that Indians get is never questioned by Conservatives (for the most part).

    That's on our dime too.
