Why Critical Race Theory Harms The Black Community

At its core, CRT stems from the concept of critical theory and therefore aims to divide people into “oppressed” and “oppressor” groups, foment hate and chaos, and eventually disintegrate our society. It claims that concepts such as white privilege are the reality, and we should pursue equity instead of meritocracy.

But as a black former U.S. Air Force officer and pilot living in a nearly all-white community for the last 18 years, my personal experience here has not been rooted in oppression, division, and racial privilege being stacked against me. Instead, I’ve experienced equality, unity, and mutual respect.

Yes, people in my community see that I’m black, but that’s not how they define me or my kids. Isn’t that what the civil rights struggle was all about? Isn’t that what people of color have fought and died to establish in our country? By engaging in CRT, we risk losing the equality that Americans have fought for, and the end result will not be progress.
