Tenets of CRT:
Critical Race Theory (CRT) is an organic field, continually developing to reflect the changes needed to dismantle white supremacy, and as such the number of major principles are not set in stone. As a result, major themes across CRT literature can be represented by the following 8 principles:
Critique of [neo] Liberalism/Neo-Marxist
Racial Legal Justice
Whiteness as Property
Interest Convergence/Material Determinism
Story and Counter-storytelling
Elevation of Pragmatic Knowledge
