Is CRT Marxist? Most definitely. As it became increasingly clear that classical Marxism was providing a very poor solution for economic problems, Western-Marxism abandoned Marx’s singular focus on economic class and instead focused on social and cultural factors. But it kept Marx’s approach of identifying victims and oppressors. A number of the intellectuals that had a prominent place in the early development or foundation of CRT, CLS, and CT identified as either Marxists or Communists. Today, in addition to race, the Marxist template of victim/oppressor is used to create division among people by gender, gender identity, and sexual attraction.
