Is Critical Race Theory Illegal?

Teaching critical race theory in the public schools is immoral, but it is legal unless the legislature in a given state has banned it. On the other hand, for an employer to inflict CRT training on employees against their will can be legally problematic. And even in the public schools, promoting CRT while discriminating against expression of other viewpoints may violate the First Amendment.

Today the Upper Midwest Law Center, fresh off its victory over the City of Minneapolis, in a case in which a state court judge ordered Minneapolis to hire more police officers to comply with that city’s charter, held a press conference to announce several new legal actions, all related in some way to critical race theory. (Disclosure: I am a member of UMLC’s Board of Directors.)

From the press release announcing the actions:


In the end, the evil of critical race theory and other forms of Marxism will be defeated when the public at large understands what they represent. Meanwhile, legal action can be a valuable means of reining in discriminatory conduct by employers and others, and also a part of the ongoing educational process. Kudos to Upper Midwest Law Center for taking on these important cases.

‘Racist and divisive’: Minnesotans take critical race theory fight to court

Minnesotans are fighting back against the "racist and divisive" ideology of critical race theory, which they say has overrun their workplaces and schools.

Some Minnesotans say they have been bullied, retaliated against, and even demoted for speaking out against critical race theory in their places of work and education.

And now they are taking matters into their own hands, they said at a press conference earlier this week at the Minnesota Capitol, where three new lawsuits were announced.

In two of the cases, the parties are required to present their claims to the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission before proceeding with a lawsuit. In a third case against Lakeville Area Schools, a lawsuit has been filed in federal court.

“Our clients are bravely confronting CRT-inspired bullying, indoctrination and retaliation, which is not ‘training’ or persuasion,” said Doug Seaton, whose Upper Midwest Law Center is representing the plaintiffs in all three cases.
