Smart people with popular indoctrination

Very sad to hear a great subject fall into the memes of popular racism exposed in critical race theory and intersectionality. Keep logical stop pushing the falsehoods of crt, you may believe it but it makes you sound stupid and dogmatic! As a if person without the integrity to be listened too.
