Soledad O’Brien: Okay, you can stop tweeting me about Critical Race Theory now

posted at 4:15 pm on March 12, 2012 by Allahpundit

Via the Daily Caller. I sympathize with the Political Math guy’s take on this but this clip is so dumb that you should watch it for the entertainment value, if nothing else. The key bit comes at 2:50. Remember when Joel Pollak described CRT as an argument that “the civil rights movement was a sham and that white supremacy is the order and it must be overthrown,” earning instant sneers from O’Brien? She restates his position here for her guest, Professor Dorothy Brown, as “he said Critical Race Theory is all about white supremacy.” Brown seems taken aback by that, understandably — the way O’Brien phrases it, it sounds as if Pollak was claiming that CRT was itself white supremacist in nature, which is insane. So, good job to everyone involved here in debunking something that no one is claiming. The other possibility is that Brown understood Joel’s point perfectly well despite O’Brien’s mangled attempt to restate it and simply thought his description of the discipline was wrong. If that’s the case, we have an even bigger problem. Go read Jim Treacher’s post to see why, paying special attention to the law review excerpt he found and who the author is. Either Joel’s being sandbagged here by an academic who agrees with him when the cameras aren’t on or the whole conversation’s FUBAR because O’Brien couldn’t get his position right when asking her question.

For the record, National Review checked with Harvard Professor Stephan Thernstrom on Friday to settle the great Pollak/O’Brien CRT dispute and got this response:

Stephan Thernstrom, a professor of social history at Harvard, explains to National Review Online that he sees Pollak’s explanation as “a little crude but essentially right. O’Brien is simply blowing smoke.”

Thernstrom explains that “CRT does boil down to the assumption that white supremacy lives on, only in more subtle ways. Proponents would refer more often to ‘white privilege’ than ‘white supremacy,’ but I’m sure you could find them using the former term as well.”

He notes, however, that Pollak “certainly” went too far in his claims about what CRT proponents think about the civil rights movement: “They admire it greatly because it was a mass movement by blacks and led by blacks. . . . But they would maintain that the actual legislation and court decisions that resulted from it were very minor advances that made hardly a dent in the oppressive structures created by whites to keep blacks down.”

Tom Maguire went dumpster diving through the NYT’s archives and found that their treatment of CRT over the years dovetails with Pollak’s definition too. O’Brien could have conceded the accuracy of his definition during their interview and stuck with the argument that his association with Bell means nothing when assessing Obama’s motives, but she and CNN evidently felt obliged to go the extra mile of trying to make it look like Pollak quite literally didn’t know what he was talking about. Go figure that Joel, a Harvard Law grad, knows what’s being taught at Harvard Law.

Soledad O’Brian then has Dorothy brown on her show to rebut Joel Pollak, who Soledad conveniently does not have on the show to defend himself, and Dorothy Brown lies to CNN’s viewer.

From one of Dorothy Brown’s own publications.

First, critical race theory seeks to expose the entrenchment of White supremacy and the reality of the continued subordination of people of color in the United States (and throughout the world), and to unravel its relationship with the rule of law.

More specifically, race crits examine how racial power constitutes and reproduces itself through the apparatuses of law and culture. Second, race crits are not satisfied with merely naming and understanding their observations and discoveries; they also are committed to transforming the relationship between law and
hegemonic racial power in order to destabilize that power.

Third, like critical legal scholars, race crits continue to reject notions of objectivity and neutrality in the law, and the idea that legal scholarship can and should be so characterized.

SWalker on March 12, 2012 at 4:24 PM

This is exactly why O’Brien’s “Black in America” and “Latino in America” series were so indescribably stupid. She’s vaguely invested in racial liberalism. But didn’t really consult people who study the black or latin experience in this country.

libfreeordie on March 12, 2012 at 4:24 PM

What? They didn’t bring Jay Wasshisname in to go over how Pollak is racist for talking about CRT while white?

It was one of the most entertaining bits of the whole original segment. I wonder why they don’t even bother to mention it?

Lily on March 12, 2012 at 4:24 PM

Race baiting works.

faraway on March 12, 2012 at 4:24 PM

I’m honestly surprised that more isn’t being made of the other liberal commentator on the show saying that Pollack is “afraid of black people” when he is in fact, married to a black woman…

She could have if she knew the definition herself. It seems as if she got caught unawares and unprepared until a producer read her some righteous Wiki reference in her earpiece.

D-fusit on March 12, 2012 at 4:29 PM

CRT was an intellectual development in the late 1970s and early 1980s in which some scholars, perturbed by what they perceived as a loss of momentum in the movement for racial equality, began to doubt that the constitutional and legal system itself had the capacity for change.

This criticism mirrored a Marxist attack long voiced in academia: that the Constitution had been a capitalist document incapable of allowing for the redistributionist change necessary to create a more equal world. To create a more equal world, the Constitution and the legal system would have to be endlessly criticized – hence critical theory – and torn down from within.

The Marxist criticism of the system was called critical theory; the racial criticism of the system was therefore called Critical Race Theory.

ted c on March 12, 2012 at 4:29 PM

who cares

gerrym51 on March 12, 2012 at 4:18 PM

I do.

And many other Americans do too.

This is just one small example of how the media has manipulated the public over the years.

If this episode occurred 20 years ago, Soledad wouldn’t have even felt the need to bring the topic up again to try to save some credibility. They would have been happy that Soledad would have lied in the first interview and would have not worried about any type of backlash. Because after all, letters to CNN’s office aren’t made public worldwide.

But with the internet has come the ability for people to see all the facts from numerous viewpoints.

And that’s why she had to bring on an “expert” to try to show she knew what she was talking about. An attempt to silence the disagreement she was seeing through social media.

And then in an attempt to gain some kind of advantage on the narrative, it actually blew up on her face because now she has really exposed how biased she and her “expert” were.

Her expert publicly stated prior to this kerfuffle the exact same thing as Pollak.

So the fact this is one small example of how the media has manipulated the public, I care a great deal.

People need to be aware they cannot trust any source. They need to go to numerous sources in an to attempt to get the real truth.

ButterflyDragon on March 12, 2012 at 4:29 PM

Challenge the the control of liberal misrepresentation of the dialogue. Challenge and ask them to explain it. Stop the MSM control of dispensing their version of the truth.

They are the ones that don’t have the degree in “advanced economics”.

FlaMurph on March 12, 2012 at 4:29 PM

So, good job to everyone involved here in debunking something that no one is claiming.

This could have easily been avoided by having Pollack back on to discuss – if he were inclined to grant O’Brien a rematch.

But that would have led to more embarrassment. The straw man/appeal to authority combo was all CNN had, so no opposing voice allowed.

If you want a good laugh, go check out her Twitter feed. She is being deluged with tweets mocking her. There are even some hashtags to go along with the fun.

If she continues to make a fool of herself, CNN will intervene. For the MSM, it’s all about the brand equity of the MSM. They’re willing to chuck a Dan Rather or Charlie Gibson overboard, so long as the sacrosanct MSM remains intact. If Soledad continues bungling her defense of CRT (and by extension the MSM’s non-vetting of Obama), then the sun will set on Soldedad’s career at CNN.

In other words, keep up the pressure!

——————

Canadian Critical Race Theory: Racism and the Law
*************************************************

Carol Aylward, professor law and director of the Law Programme for Indigenous Blacks and Mi’kmaq at Dalhousie Law School, applies the principles of Critical Race Theory (CRT), a recent movement in public-interest/civil rights law, to Canadian racial problems and issues.

Especially noteworthy is her treatment of litigation,

which successfully weds the insights of this new body of jurisprudence with the everyday problems of lawyers working for racial justice.
**************

In this respect, at least, Aylward vaults Canadian thought far ahead of its forerunner and challenges her U.S. counterparts to rethink their neglect of praxis.

That quote is a footnote to this statement that’s in the second paragraph (not counting footnotes and quotes) of Browns text:

Although CRT does not employ a single methodology,5 it seeks to highlight the
ways in which the law is not neutral and objective, but designed to support
White supremacy and the subordination of people of color.6

Brown, of course, will suffer no consequences for her lie. Neither will O’Brien.
