7. Excellent. Last night I heard someone make a similar point about CRT.

Instead of just shrugging it off as a fabrication, Terry McAuliffe could have used that as an opportunity to decode it as racism and directly defend African Americans. (i.e., "Do you folks see what CRT is a euphemism for and what is actually under attack here...?" )

That is a great lesson that we cannot just dismiss the culture wars but we need to explain what they really are and dismantle them at the core, and use them as an opportunity to fight for the minority interest under attack.

"If they see you fighting for them, they will fight for you (at the voting booth)" is the point this person was making. Black Americans in WV didn't' feel like McAuliffe used that opportunity to really fight for them.
