    Thanks for your analysis!

    This is also an interesting point for #12, Delgado says that not all CRTers believe in all the tenets he sets out.

    Voddie: “According to Richard Delgado, the worldview of CRT is based on four key presuppositions:”

    Delgado: “Probably not every writer would subscribe to every tenet set out in this book, but many would agree on the following propositions.” As you pointed out, he then goes on to list more than four tenets.

    Thank you for taking the time to explain all this. At the risk of making Bauchman’s mistake (since I haven’t read this book!) I found it helped me understand some things I’ve been wondering about.

    My own observations:both sides are right . Both sides are wrong. Both sides think they have all the answer.

    Claim: “Harvard Law professor Derrick Bell and some colleagues held a conference in Wisconsin, where Critical Race Theory was officially born” (p. XI).

    a) Derrick Bell and colleagues did not hold a conference in Wisconsin in 1989. Rather, Kimberlé Crenshaw, Neil Gotanda, and Stephanie Phillips held a conference in Madison, WI on July 8, 1989, titled “New Developments in CRT.” Dr. Bell was merely invited and subsequently attended.

    Ridiculous, pathetic nit-picking that has zero pertinence to the worth of an excellent book.

    That the author opens his piece with something so weak suggests that the rest of the piece will be unimpressive.

      Read the whole piece. Your hero says that he is describing the subject of his book. Yet, he gets everything wrong when doing so. Get an education, don’t worship men.

    I find it ironic that Voddie, and others, take issue with story telling/use of narrative as a way of conveying truth when the vast majority of the Bible (which they, and I, hold to be inerrant) is a narrative! To think that those created in God’s image would dare use a similar way to communicate truths is absurd.
