    Wow. I was blinking a couple of times at the responses.

    I think it’s critical (!) to examine all things. But the examination has to be truthful and honest.

    It’s hard to climb down from a position you feel you must defend because you are embattled and running out of resources and room to maneuver, but it might be time for the good doctor to admit that his conclusions were hasty. When you’re shifting the goalposts, you perhaps don’t understand the playing field.

      Oh, and I asked for permission to use their words, saying I would profit nothing but to further the cause of antiracism and would link their works. Y’all got me! Hahaha. So glad these are the best responses Shenvi and you all can come up with. Leaves entirely intact their clear rejection of his false construction.

    How would you characterize Critical Theory? Have you written something? If so, could you refer me to it? If not, where can I find a definition that would be faithful to the intents of the critical theorists? Dr. Bradley Levinson says the Intro to his book captures the “core” of critical thought. What book was he talking about?
