I am a fellow at the family. Research council in washington. Dc and has served on the board of several conservative constitutionally. A centered organizations. And you read something. Recently we talk a lot on this podcast about critical race theory You have also talked about critical race theory and how it undermines racial can you expound on that a little more. I know for people on the left. That's a surprising statement. Could've grace theory as it has been advanced Sets up a hierarchy of racial types It under the guiso attacking racism Actue deepens the institutional racism that that might exist in the in. The world look those proponents critical race. Theory of believe that america was locked into a moment of history their their motto is sixteen nineteen model and they believe that as a consequence of being frozen moment. America is irreparably a racist and must be reconstructed torn down and fundamentally reconstructed whether they are those of us who understand history as a process that america was not frozen in the sixteen. Nineteen modality We in fact had a seventeen. Seventy six Birth as as as a nation and while there are moments in our history since seventeen seventy six where there have been a racial challenges What we have is a universally accepted principle that that the government no form of government is the grandeur human rights are human rights are gifted guy inherited human dignity and governments can only i recognize and and and protect those fundamental under mental human rights and so critical race theory out basically says that there is this cabal of racial geniuses who in fact can unfreeze from a moment that they claim that we are frozen in sixteen nineteen and do their critical of manipulations Can change into the perfect utopian society and that is just pure is just pure nonsense. Since seventeen seventy six as lincoln opined a we are not a perfect nation but we are perfectible nation. an we've seen tremendous tremendous advancements in in racial harmony eight and the breaking down those barriers to opportunity have been based on race and we have seen a tremendous transformation in our country.
