Conservatives actually love critical race theory -- when they turn the subject to 'oppressed' White people

If you're trying to figure out why so many conservatives despise critical race theory, here's some historical context you should remember:
White conservatives oppose critical race theory -- only when it's applied to Black people.

But many have no problem adopting some of CRT's language and core insights when complaining that contemporary America discriminates against White people.
This is the audacious double standard that's often overlooked in the current debate over critical race theory. Many White conservatives roll their eyes when Black people claim that systemic racism exists, that racism is baked into the nation's policies and legal system, and that it can't be reduced to individual prejudice -- all key CRT concepts.

She is apparently is not a fan of "equal protection under the law" or the rest of the Constitution. Most dems aren't.
