Thought I'd cook up a thread to open some dialogue on a subject we're all very comfortable talking about. Yes, you guessed it right; Critical Race Theory. For this thread, I'll try to keep the OP intentional somewhat vague, but I'll provide additional resources are the bottom of the OP for additional research on the topic. This is can be a very complicated and nuanced topic that will cover things such as culture, empirical research, BLM, economics and philosophy. If any of these topics offend you, or you are not well-researched on the topic; I would ask you from refraining in discussion.
Why is this topical?

I'll keep the prompt very open:Critical race theory (CRT) is a theoretical framework in the social sciences that examines society and culture as they relate to categorizations of race, law, and power. [Source: Wikipedia]
