“The ideal of this country is based on the organic worth of people as individuals. So what we should be trying to do is to look at people insofar as we can without regard to race. And critical race theory is exactly the opposite. That's all it sees. It reduces people to that one identity marker and that demeans their humanity. It's really, it's wrong and it's really dangerous,” said Talent.
