Many Members Of The Church Are Confused By Those Conflating Root Out Racism with Critical Race Theory
The Charge from President Nelson and President Oaks to "Root out racism" and "lead out" against prejudice does not imply support for Critical Race Theory. In fact, looking closely at President Oaks' words since President Nelson made the charge in the October 2020 General Conference, shows just the opposite.
Yet many members of the Church and BYU professors make the claim that this important message from our Church leaders is to be carried out through radical leftist ideologies and practices. We need to be able to discern the differences.
