My appearance on the Speech First podcast with Cherise Trump: Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion is “the Marxist class struggle reformulated as racial struggle converted into action items at a corporate level.”
We covered many topics in depth, including the structure and projects of Legal Insurrection Foundation (CriticalRace.org and EqualProtect.org), how DEI has penetrated deeply into education, how it is how CRT is put into action, and whether there is hope or not.
"You have to AFFIRMATIVELY adhere to their ideology. […] It's so embedded in academia."

WAJ (38:24):Well, I witnessed in many ways the birth of critical race theory. So I graduated Harvard Law School in 1984, and that’s where it formed, it was critical legal theory at the time, but it had very racial aspects to it…. Nobody used the term at that time, critical race theory. It was critical legal theory. And critical legal theory was a very marxist view of the law, from a class-based perspective that the law does not seek truth. The law does not seek any real justice. The law is just a mechanism to maintain the class structure and the power structure.
Critical race theory took that Marxist class structure and substituted race for class. So critical race theory views our legal system and our laws while seemingly neutral on their face as actually just mechanisms to maintain a racial hierarchy in the country and to maintain racism. And that it’s embedded. You don’t have to be conscious of it. It is everywhere. You can’t get rid of it. And that’s why you have to constantly struggle against it. That’s Ibraham Kendi’s formulation that …
CT (39:45): You’re, but this is also like right out of the Mark Engles playbook. This is a constant struggle. Right. That struggle.
WAJ (39:53): But it’s race as opposed to [class] …
Now that, that is the theory. So they are somewhat correct when they come back and they want to argue over, well, is it critical race theory? Is it not? That’s a legal theory taught in law school? Well, yes, that’s true.
DEI is how critical race theory gets put into action. DEI takes those same concepts of racism embedded in society, of racism being everywhere, being unconscious of racism, and having to struggle against it, and puts it into action through training, through indoctrination, through other things…
WAJ (41:57): ….So that’s what DEI is, it’s the Marxist class struggle reformulated as racial struggle converted into action items at a corporate level.
