Critical race theory is taught to law students because systemic racism is real and they need to understand it to be able to defend their clients. The day that white people fear for our lives when being pulled over by the police you can complain about racism. The day the justice system starts incarcerating millions of white people unjustly for years longer than necessary in order to fund our for-profit prison system you can complain about racism. The day politicians start scheming to make it harder for you to vote you can complain about racism. The day white men are paid less than others for your work you can complain about racism. Until then, you're just another whiny white man crying about absolutely nothing. All of your rights remain intact.
