Poll: More Gen Zers have negative views of capitalism than of CRT

The bulk of teenagers and young adults born between 1997 and 2008 (61 percent) are either unsure or at least neutral on the topic of critical race theory, the latest culture war issue for conservative media figures and state-level Republican officials who have accused schools of attempting to brainwash children with an academic and legal theory about the deep roots of systemic racism in the United States.

Just over 1 in 5 (22 percent) Gen Zers view critical race theory positively and 19 percent view it negatively, with college-aged or older Gen Zers (those between the ages of 21 and 24) being slightly more likely to approve of it.
