You are a hispanic woman married to a white man. Together, you and your husband have mixed race children. The CRT ideology brings a conflict into your immediate situation. Can you elaborate on that?
Angela and I broke down some of the language and messaging of CRT, but what I’d like to do is talk to you about how this effects families who are obviously dealing with this issue from a different perspective. In my family, per CRT, my husband and boys are the epitome of an oppressor, especially because they’re white Christian males. But in your family, your children are supposed to see their mom as the oppressed and their father as the oppressor. Where does that leave your kids? How dangerous is this ideology for the next generation and what will be the effects if the church doesn’t step in and intercept it?
Some don’t realize why CRT is racism. They think they’re fighting racism with this ideology. Why is that a false conclusion?
I love one of your posts on IG when you’re in a shirt that says, “Critical Race Theory is Racism” (which we can find at the link in your bio and I’ll put it in the show notes as well). You boldly speak to the church about how to address racism and it is not with CRT. If someone in the church is passionate about speaking into racism, how can they do it effectively?
I like to get to the heart of issues because I know we will never find the cure if we don’t. You mention being secure in your identity. In a lot of ways, race is being attached to identity through CRT. Why is this unbiblical and what advice can you give to those who struggle with their identity because of the color of their skin?
