Christopher Rufo: CRT Is Based on the Prison Politics of Racial Segregation
To see the possible results of critical race theory (CRT) and the type of society it could create, we can look at the prison systems where many of CRT’s ideas were formed. This is according to writer, filmmaker, and researcher Christopher Rufo, whose research into race politics within the prison system led him to research the origins and possible results of CRT as it spreads through American schools, corporate trainings, and government.
He explains there is a parallel between CRT and prison gang ideologies, which emerged from black nationalist and Marxist-Leninist revolutionary movements in California in the late 1960s and early 1970s.
Rufo also details how CRT attempts to represent an anti-racist movement, but in reality, encourages hatred and racism. He explains “They’re telling certain employees you can’t mix with these employees during these diversity training programs because you are dangerous to each other. You should actually be in some ways hostile to one another.”
And as CRT trainings are finding their way into schools, businesses, and government agencies, the discriminatory roots of the system may even be illegal under U.S. law. Rufo explains, “By delivering that message, a lot of attorneys that I’ve worked with believe that you’re violating the First Amendment, which protects your right to conscience; the 14th Amendment, which guarantees equal treatment under the law; and also the Civil Rights Act.”
