President of Columbia University Says Critical Race Theory is ‘Urgent and Necessary’

Columbia University president: ‘Critical race theory’ is ‘urgent and necessary’

Lee Bollinger, president of Columbia University, believes that Critical Race Theory is “urgent and necessary.”

Columbia News interviewed several Columbia Law School professors to explain CRT, as well as efforts from Republicans to “demonize” it.

“Critical race theory and the essential scholarship it has advanced may challenge many long-held views, but that is what makes this work so urgent and necessary,” Bollinger told the outlet. “I could not be more proud that it is taking place at Columbia. This is, after all, what makes universities such vital institutions in society.”

“In the finest tradition of Columbia Law School, our brilliant faculty were among the foundational thinkers and continue to lead the dialogue on this vital issue,” added law professor Gillian Lester. “Their scholarship, teaching, and advocacy have illuminated the pervasive effects of structural racism in our society and in the law. That they have persisted in the face of hostility and outright falsehoods is testament to their vision and determination.”

The article also quoted from Kimberlé Crenshaw — the law professor who coined the term “intersectionality.”

“It is a way of looking at law’s role platforming, facilitating, producing, and even insulating racial inequality in our country, ranging from health to wealth to segregation to policing,” said Crenshaw of Critical Race Theory.

“Critical race theory and the essential scholarship it has advanced …”

I guess Mark Twain was wrong. It should be Lies, Damn lies, and “scholarship.”

    They live in an ivory tower and not the real world. It’s easy to believe the bullcrap when you never have to sully your hands with actual work.

    Plumbers and electricians, by way of contrasting example, know that there are real-life consequences if they ignore facts and reality.

CRT, or variants of it, started slithering and sliming their way via indoctrinated, falsely indignant undergrads into medicine back in the early 90s. It remained kind of like a sub-clinical, “indolent” infection that just suddenly became worse in the last two years. It was a pain in the butt to deal with then, and is even worse now.

As far as it being “necessary”, Bollinger just means how much grant money his faculty can produce from even more absurd Marxist positions. He would not give a hoot if it didn’t produce some kind of income.

The poor zhlub doesn’t want to have to face a riot on his campus.

One should remember the recent exposure of how Columbia–under that phony president Bollinger–ha s been exposed as guilty of ripping off students and the
federal government with phoney MA programs such as film studies
