S01E17 – Is Critical Race Theory a big deal?

In this episode of Finding Common Battlegrounds, we discuss Critical Race Theory (CRT). Josh argues that CRT is being taught. Ryan agrees that it is being taught in college, but not really in K-12. Josh also argues that CRT is influencing society and can lead some people to adopt a victim mindset. Ryan equivocates on the degree to which it is influencing society and also dislikes victim mindsets. Ryan takes a more meta approach in this episode and explains what Critical Theory is, then gives specific examples of Critical Race Theory and illustrates how it is used to analyze laws, policies, and regulations. Josh generally agrees with Ryan’s description of critical race theory. And, as a bonus, Ryan gets Josh to agree with a statement by Karl Marx (shortly after hell freezes over).
