Critical Race Theory analyzes existing power structures in American society from a conscious awareness of the pervasive institutionalized racism embedded in American legal, social, economic and educational structures. Challenging white privilege and white supremacy, liberalism and meritocracy, Critical Race Theory recognizes that disempowerment is not solely caused by race alone. Critical Race Theory is a multi-dimensional theoretical approach to analyzing and deconstructing the intersecting complexities of American culture.
