Recently, on the Black News Channel, Temple professor and BNC host Marc Lamont Hill asked Manhattan Institute Senior Fellow Christopher Rufo to “name something positive about being white.” This took place during Lamont Hill’s 26 minute interview with Rufo about the pros and cons of Critical Race Theory in America.
This video highlights the excerpt, but also brings attention to the impact culture has on racial disparities in the United States (something Rufo attempted to analyze during the interview), and how exploring culture has become increasingly taboo with anti-racists and those who push Critical Race Theory in education and government.

The president of Juilliard’s Black Student Union, Marion Grey, insists Black lives do not matter at Juilliard. Grey says she was traumatized after participating in NYU theater professor Michael McElroy’s workshop titled “Roots to Rep,” where students were required to listen to a mock slave auction taken from an episode of “Roots.” This video examines Professor McElroy’s objectives, excerpts from Marion Grey’s response video, and a clip from the mock slave auction itself, and analyzes how aspects of Critical Race Theory and anti-racism seem to be at odds with the very people these approaches aim to help.
