Hey Soledad, Derrick Bell Agrees With Our Definition Of Critical Race Theory

In this audio dug up by Verum Serum, Prof. Derrick Bell explaining some core tenants of Critical Race Theory.  As Verum puts it: “But I thought according to Soledad O’Brien, Critical Race Theory was just about the intersection of race and politics and stuff?”

Verum also found writings of Bell’s that shed a bit of light on the origins of President Obama’s emphasis on “empathy” in his judicial nominations.  

“The empathethic perspective also comes from the Critical Race Theory tradition, which suggests that a diverse judiciary greatly shapes judicial decision making, legal analysis, and, by extension, the law itself. Specifically, judges who hail from different social or cultural backgrounds may provide a more nuanced understanding of facts, evidence, and credibility determinations than judges who lack such experience.”
