Conspiracy Race Theory
Reviewed in the United States on August 29, 2019
I read this book to learn more about Critical Race Theory. In the process of this endeavor, I continually ran into truth claims void of evidence, false presuppositions, racial stereotyping and straw man arguments. The book did help me understand Critical Race Theory better than I had previously understood it. It also revealed to me that the entire theory is build upon a house of cards whose foundation is sand. It’s presuppositions concerning “whiteness” and the assumed collective motivations of the white race toward colonialism and the obtaining and holding of power over other races are on the par of conspiracy theories. It not only explains CRT from a legal profession standpoint, it holds an implicit bias in support of it. The typical presuppositions are promoted including the concepts of oppressed and oppressor being race based. Other false presuppositions include theories concerning implicit racism in law enforcement, the implicit racism of nation states enforcing national boundaries, inequity in education based on racial divide and the free enterprise system in international free trade being implicitly racist. If you can stomach the implicit bias in this book, you might be able to gain some insight into the mindset of a CRT advocate by reading it. In that since I recommend it. However, I do not recommend serious consideration of its conspiracy theory tendencies.
