Some may be surprised that I’m saying Stop the CRT BS
Some who have followed my rants over the past year have tried to peg me. Those who think my heart is in helping society be better (aka “the left”) might think it strange that I am agreeing with critics of CRT. Those who think I’m trying to lean right may, with a surface read of this article, say, “Right on!”
Either way, they’re missing my point.
We can keep going this way. Maybe it’ll all be resolved with a bloody civil war. Perhaps it will simply be a cold war that keeps us in our red or blue basket, estranged from the world and angry.
That’s kind of sad, don’t you think?
We can’t train ourselves out of this hole. We can make a personal decision. Here’s an idea….
Grab a link to an MSM article from a venue you don’t agree with. Read it. Then block 10 minutes. Close your eyes and think about the article. Open your eyes. Read the article again. Find one (just one) thing you agree with. Now close your eyes again and think about how you would have emerged from reading that article had you not been asked to think of one thing you agree with.
Then, try it again.
You just might find that there is no clear answer to anything. And THAT’s when we can begin to heal.
We are a collective people
It would be so much easier if we were a homogenous people. But we aren’t. In a collective, there isn’t room for absolute. There is only room for best thinking about all sides, clear decision-making, and regular revisiting of the issue.
Are you going to perpetuate the binary thinking? Or will you find the courage to get beyond it?
If you do find the courage, I suspect you will find that we all have more in common than not.
