On Critical Race Theory by Victor Ray

"If you can control a man's thinking, you do not have to worry about his actions. When you determine what a man shall think, you do not have to concern yourself about what he will do. If you make a man, feel that he is inferior, you do not have to compel him to accept an inferior status, for he will seek it himself. If you make a man, think that he is justly an outcast, you do not have to order him to the back door. He will go without being told; and if there is no back door, his very nature will demand one”. ~ Dr. Carter Woodson~

On Critical Race Theory, Victor Ray decoded the art of racism as it ought to be done and understood! Why critical race theory matters and why we should all care is what the author, Victor Ray, insightfully and conscientiously highlighted in his book, "On Critical Race Theory".

On Critical Race Theory, the author diligently exposes all the racist traits America harbors which are ever unchanged in practice from the Jim Crow era of racial segregation to the Donald Trump MAGA, the modern era of cementing white supremacy, from decoding the language of racism and drive away the negative narratives about race, thus, racial biases analyzed in a language that any reasonable mind can adhere. The author successfully unmasks racism in America, "Racism is America's Central political fault line...Critical race theory shows how this fault line runs through the American institutional systems”.

My takeaway from this book is that, in most cases, books are not written maliciously to antagonize people and society but rather to enlighten and educate the public. The author underscores the myths and deep-fake narratives about critical race theory in this context.

Books expand knowledge, elevate thinking, and sharpen understanding… For those who are blind and or deaf about what racism is and or stands for, I would urge you to read this book with an open yet reasonable mind, for reasoning is the essence of understanding...There is no book on critical race theory like this!
