Despite the death of Andrew Breitbart, his political gotcha machine is still in operation. Apparently that machine is intent on creating an intellectual-ideological link between President Barack Obama, former Harvard Law Professor Derrick Bell, and Critical Race Theory (CRT).
If you’re interested in learning more about CRT, read Andrew Hartman’s December 6, 2011 post titled “Post-Civil Rights Intellectual Ferment.” I wasn’t able to hear or read Andrew’s paper as presented at the 2012 AHA meeting, but I’m sure he’d be willing to expand on its contents in the comments here or in a new post. If you desire more than Hartman’s analysis CRT is also discussed in Daniel Rodgers’ Age of Fracture. – TL
PS: Check out all of the images that come up when you conduct a Google Image search for CRT. I had no idea so many books had been written on the topic.
