    No, the negative perception is about CRT itself, and the way it causes people to interpret racism in everything around them. The negative perception is about the trash Weltanschauung that comes with it, the inherent resentfulness of White people- White history, cultures, and achievements- and the fact that many people want nothing to do with the ideology that comes with CRT.

    They can't even explain CRT, but they're sure they're against it!

    Believe me, blindly calling anything related to equity, civil rights, or diversity CRT is very much a thing, particularly in schools.

    That is the right wing disinformation about CRT that you are repeating here.

    Listen to what professors explain what CRT is and you will see it is nothing like how the right wing is spreading disinformation and propaganda. We see a member who has been influenced here.

    This is what CRT actually is from a credible source:

    critical race theory (CRT), intellectual and social movement and loosely organized framework of legal analysis based on the premise that race is not a natural, biologically grounded feature of physically distinct subgroups of human beings but a socially constructed (culturally invented) category that is used to oppress and exploit people of colour. Critical race theorists hold that racism is inherent in the law and legal institutions of the United States insofar as they function to create and maintain social, economic, and political inequalities between whites and nonwhites, especially African Americans. Critical race theorists are generally dedicated to applying their understanding of the institutional or structural nature of racism to the concrete (if distant) goal of eliminating all race-based and other unjust hierarchies.

    Facebook and the usual suspects are to blame. Propaganda messing with people's emotions. Toss in how it'll hurt your "children and grandchildren" and you got people emotionally manipulated.
    Make people frightened, then hit them with the disinformation. Irrational people can't think straight and will believe anything.

    You could try the link?

    Seemed pretty straight forward to me.

    CRT is the legal and social theory that seeks to understand and address things such as systemic racism and built in structural racism.

    Given that definition, and a real world example, it would be hard to know what to conclude. Seems like a very vague, malleable, ambiguous definition.

    No wonder there are so many arguments about it - it's clear as mud.

    I found it pretty clear and concise. Basically it examines how society evolved through the centuries, and despite the Civil War and several amendments to the Constitution the USA still needed the Civil Rights Act to help protect black citizens in a mostly white America. It goes on to explain poverty and why black people have prejudice against them. Perhaps you've heard of recent home appraisals for black people vastly less than for white people. One example of a black owned home was a suspiciously low appraisal, and then when a white friend posed as the owner the appraisal came back significantly higher. Also addressed is how much easier it is for white to accumulate and pas son wealth than black families.

    There has been quite a bit reported in recent decades about this.

    The question is: why are conservatives distorting what CRT is, and where it is taught?

    Do they have an ulterior motive to oppose the things it reveals about American culture, namely racism?

    Yes, and they blame all those problems on white people ("whiteness" or "white supremacy"). Nothing he said was incorrect. It's a far-left neo-Marxist ideology.
