Wednesday, CNN ran a segment making the case that opponents to “Critical Race Theory” don’t even fully understand what it means.
“Do these vocal opponents of critical race theory actually understand fully what it is?” host Brianna Keilar asked Elle Reeve.
Reeve replied “No.” She then asked. “Why should they? It’s an academic theory mostly taught at the grad-student level.”
She went on to say “critical race theory is an academic framework that says racial inequality is perpetuated by the racism embedded in America’s laws, not by individual bigotry.” ace theory is being misconstrued as an idea that attacks white people.
Grabien Media founder Tom Elliott ripped the CNN report, calling it “everything wrong w/ the modern media: Rather than interviewing subjects of a story & reporting their comments, the reporter starts w/ her own preconceived notion — these parents are idiots — cherrypicks a few for mocking, then shapes her report around advancing her own narrative.”
CNN's Elle Reeve asked both sides of the debate to define "critical race theory."
