  • Al Jazeera English published this video item, entitled “Should ‘Critical Race Theory’ be taught to US students? | The Bottom Line” – below is their description.

    Reverend William Barber, president of the Repairers of the Breach social justice movement, tells host Steve Clemons that the US needs a “third Reconstruction” to really break free of its racist past.

    The debate on how to teach US racial history rages in classrooms across the country.

    Progressives believe Americans should know more about white supremacy and modern-day discrimination against Black and brown Americans in everything from housing to healthcare.

    Conservatives believe that “critical race theory” pits Americans against each other and challenges the idea that the US is the greatest country in the history of the universe.
