I could not help but read and think about Critical Race Theory. The kind of CRT that indeed requires some intellectual heft, not the misnamed CRT which equates to banning the accurate portrayal of the Black experience in schools. Now, I'm at the starting line with my understanding of it but I am expanding my mind more by learning more about it.

Awesome take on the power of white art highlighting racism. I've never watched Gone With the Wind. My mom loved it, I know that. I probably should watch it for the first time. In retrospect as a straight white male growing up in the 1980s, they did a pretty poor job marketing the movie to me.

I'm not sure I've seen it honestly, though I read the book multiple times for a project I was working on.

Victor Ray's a scholar who does a good job explaining CRT. https://www.nbcnews.com/meet-the-press/meetthepressblog/q-critical-race-theory-really-new-book-tries-explain-rcna40960
