Critical Race Theory
The Critical Race Theory or CRT, whose origin can be traced back to the left-wing academic discussions in the 1970s and 1980s, looks into the American history through the lens of racism and recognises the systemic racism that persists in the US in the current times. This theory underscores that the racism is an everyday experience for most people of colour.
Reports found little to no evidence on critical race theory being taught at the educational institutions in the country, though the overall concept were part of the curriculum. However, several states passed legislations to limit how the CRT or related concepts can be taught in the educational institutions.
