Critical Race Theory and Equity are very similar in their ideology and end results. Equity is not the same as equality. Equity is tied to the term social justice. Equity means equal outcomes, which is very different from equal opportunities. Social justice demands things be taken from individuals in one identity group and given to those in another in order to achieve equity. Individual achievement, character and responsibility do not matter. List of Equity Consultants used throughout Minnesota.

How to Push Back Against Critical Race Theory, IFA article by Nancy Huff, educator
“In education, teachers who teach CRT will view every subject through the lens of race, keeping in mind that one race is the oppressed and the other race is the oppressor. All existing thoughts on racial justice are to be challenged and altered to explain the struggles of the oppressed.”
Christopher F. Rufo has lead the battle against CRT. Below are a few of his articles on this issue.
- Critical Race Theory Would Not Solve Racial Inequality: It Would Deepen It (PDF)
“In simple terms, Critical Race Theory reformulates the old Marxist dichotomy of oppressor and oppressed, replacing the class categories of bourgeoisie and proletariat with the identity categories of White and Black.”
– Critical race theorists falsely accuse the United States of being a fundamentally racist nation and condemns capitalism, individual rights, and the Constitution.
– Critical race theory ignores evidence that shows that family structure, educational attainment, and workforce participation are the primary drivers of inequality.
– Critical race theory seeks to undermine the foundations of American society and replace the constitutional system with a near-totalitarian “antiracist” bureaucracy.

- How to Fight Critical Race Theory
Critical Race Theory: What It Is and How to Fight It
“Critical race theorists must be confronted with and forced to speak to the facts. Do they support public schools separating first-graders into groups of “oppressors” and “oppressed”? Do they support mandatory curricula teaching that “all white people play a part in perpetuating systemic racism”? Do they support public schools instructing white parents to become “white traitors” and advocate for “white abolition”? Do they want those who work in government to be required to undergo this kind of reeducation? How about managers and workers in corporate America? How about the men and women in our military? How about every one of us?”
