Woke Critical Race Theory Panic!

Generated with imgflip
  1. Tie life experiences to wealth. Lacking wealth, a person can’t defend themselves in American society — it costs a lot just to live here. Black people don’t have wealth because they, like plenty of white people, experience cultural discrimination based on how they speak and dress.
  2. Remind them that race is an artificial construct — white people are diverse in origin, as are Black and brown. Black people have taken the originally derogative label black and reclaimed it as have many rural white Rednecks. Both are victims, though now equally, of elitism.
  3. Point out that people of all kinds, however you group them, generally want the same thing: autonomy. They want to be free to live well, work, have families — and you can’t do those things if you are constantly in fear of poverty or losing your job because of a bigot… of being canceled because of who you were born.
