Should White Feminists Do Critical Race Theory?

Well if this isn't a question we have had to tackle before. In my quest for CRT articles that do not pose copyright issues I came across this one.

White Feminists Doing CRT: Some Considerations

It was written by a white feminist explaining her perspective on why white feminist theory is important to the CRT debate. She also poses some questions for those who are white and are engaging the CRT genre. I myself have my own opinions, but since my blog is new and undiscovered, I figure I will put this article out here and let it marinate. Then I can add my fifty cents worth or so after myself and others have a chance to digest it.

Here are some questions to think about:

What is the purpose of Critical Race Theory?
Does the involvement of white scholars hinder this purpose or further it?
Having thought about this...What is the role of white scholars in Critical Race Theory (if any)?

Welcome to Critical Race Theory: A Forum for Discussion

It is my hope that this blog will provide a forum for dialogue around the genre known as Critical Race Theory. I will be posting articles, excerpts, and comments as frequently as I can. I will also be offering suggested readings and resources for those who are interested. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or ideas for future content. I am a busy working mom, but I am committed to racial and social justice, and would like to further these goals through education and discussion.
