Today is a hot topic for many, and I know it’s controversial in nature, but it needs to be talked about because it’s affecting our kids and the generations to come. Why? Because it’s seeping sneakily (and not-so-sneakily into our schools). Critical race theory.
What is critical race theory? It is the ideology that is behind most of the diversity and inclusivity training in school and the workplace, and these trainings are actually counterproductive because they’re leading to more bias and fear. It is a lens through which to see the world (a worldview) - it shapes how you view politics, theology, and education.
Critical theory sees everything as the oppressed versus the oppressor. It is deconstructing those constructs until they get down to fitting into this worldview of the oppressed versus the oppressor.
Why does this matter? What’s the big deal if our kids are being taught it in schools? Isn’t inclusiveness and diversity training a good thing? That’s exactly what I have Andrew Rappaport on with me to talk about today. The language in our culture is changing, and we need to be aware of what the truth is behind it all.
Andrew is the preaching pastor of Grace & Truth Bible Church in Bucks County, PA, and founder and executive director of Striving for Eternity Ministries and the Christian Podcast Community.
