I want to introduce a new strategy and term to you. It’s simple: call Critical Race Theorists and its activists “neoracists.” This isn’t my term, but it’s a good term, and it can stick. If you tune in to this episode of my subscribers-only podcast, James Lindsay OnlySubs, I’ll walk you through the term and the need for it, explaining how they have rigged the game to prevent the right term, “racism,” from sticking to their theory and activism. This brilliant neologism (and, no, it’s not mine) is a useful workaround to that problem, allowing people to name a blatant injustice and to make a clear, principled call against racism and neoracism at the same time. Join me for a short discussion of the term and idea!
