Remembering Mark Doumit

CRT reverses Rev. King's dream

To The Eagle: The analysis of Critical Race Theory in last week’s Eagle was concise, elegant, and precisely backward. Classifying all white people as oppressors and all other skin hues as victimized underdogs, reverses Reverend King’s dream by...

Supreme Court once ruled Blacks are not people
