Episode 174: “Race Marxism” with James Lindsay

James Lindsay is someone who truly understands Critical Race Theory and doesn’t believe a word of it. As James explains in this episode of The Bill Walton Show, “Critical Race Theory is a disaster.

In the wide-ranging interview, he explains things like “anti-racist”, systems of privilege, Queer theory and how all these theories start with the conclusions you want to reach.
