Michael Brown on Race Is Now the Elephant in the Room Even When There Is No Elephant

We are in real danger of doing deep, lasting damage to the very fabric of our nation by making everything into an issue of race. In fact, the more we blame every problem on race, the deeper our race problems will get. We will see things that are not there. We will misdiagnose the symptoms. We will overcompensate. We will make things worse.

In the end, we will deepen the divides that do exist and create new divides where they do not exist. And rather than foster reconciliation, healing, unity, and progress, we will produce bitterness, resentment, anger, and condemnation. We will go backwards rather than forwards, all in the name of justice and equality.

Yet every day, from our children’s schools to the popular culture, a false and dangerous narrative is being pushed. We either confront it, or we implode.

Mary Margaret Olohan stated concisely that, “CRT [critical race theory] holds that America is fundamentally racist, yet it teaches people to view every social interaction and person in terms of race.”

If someone is rude to you, it’s because of race.

If you get fired and another person gets hired, it’s because of race.

If you get sick and your neighbor doesn’t, it’s because of race.

If you get a poor grade in school, it’s because of race.

That’s because everything is about race and America is fundamentally racist.

If you are white you are guilty by default; if you are a person of color (especially Black) you are a victim.

That is now the lens through which everything must be seen. That is the filter through which everything must be interpreted. That’s why I said that soon enough, we are seeing things that are not there.
