Deroy Murdock recently had a piece published in Newsmax that explains why the movie Respect is the antidote to critical race theory.

According to Deroy in Newsmax:

R-E-S-P-E-C-T is the antidote to CRT.

Respect detonates three core tenets of Critical Race Theory:

a) Whites are racist oppressors.

b) Blacks are downtrodden victims of white bigotry.

c) Cultural appropriation is evil. Each race should horde its aesthetic and stylistic offerings among its own people. Whites, especially, must keep their greedy hands away from anything aesthetic that lacks European roots.

Intentionally or not, Respect incinerates these false and disgusting ideas that undergird CRT.
