Got slurs?

Franklin Graham provides a good example of why it’s so difficult to have a serious, educated conversation in this country.

Critical Race Theory is a very dangerous socialist, communist idea that has now made it mainstream in our schools by school boards who are supporting this leftist socialist ideology. Parents must rise up against the school boards and let their voices be heard. I would encourage Christians in these communities to be involved and run for school boards. How important it is for Christian men and women to take over the school boards so they can influence for the good.

But, of course, Critical Race Theory hasn’t anything to do with socialism or communism; those words are thrown in as gratuitous slurs meant to foreclose further discussion of Critical Race Theory.

FWIW, I don’t find a whole lot of the work going by that name very convincing; often, it seems to be no more than an effort to clothe anti-white malice with a patina of academic respectability. Even so, racism per se is a matter worthy of discussion, and attempting to bury the subject with inflammatory misdirection toward irrelevant economic language deserves contempt.
