Jon Stewart’s new episode of his Apple TV show saw the comedian host left-wing guests who took on the topic of race in America, arguing that all White people are on some level inherently racist and uphold the “systems” and “structures” of racism in U.S. law and culture.
It was yet another example of ideology crucial to critical race theory (CRT) receiving a prime media platform, which MSNBC, CNN, ABC, and other mainstream media outlets have pushed consistently while at times denying CRT exists.
The topic of CRT was reignited this month when Republican lawmakers fielded questions about it to Supreme Court nominee Ketanji Brown Jackson. Liberal media networks subsequently accused the GOP of racism, sexism, and more.
Back in January, when it was announced that President Biden would make good on his campaign promise to nominate a Black woman to the Supreme Court, “The View” co-host Sunny Hostin pushed back on the idea the president was playing “identity politics” and argued the candidate would likely be “overqualified” because she had overcome institutional and systemic racism.
