Book cover of Gaslights and Dog Whistles: Standing Up For Facts Over Fiction in a Fearful and Divided World

Racism is one of the most polarizing issues in the U.S. and along with it, Critical Race Theory (CRT), which examines how systems and policies perpetuate racism. The theory came about in the late 80s when a group of legal scholars set out to answer the question: “If discrimination on the basis of race or gender is illegal, why is it still happening?”

Their research suggested that racism (and sexism, they determined) in the United States is not a coincidence, but rather an outcome that is the result of the biased and slanted policies and practices that have disadvantaged non-white people in the U.S. for more than three centuries.

CRT has become a catch-all phrase for restricting how racism and history are taught in schools, and how diversity, equity and inclusion are discussed and taught to leaders in federally funded companies. To date, 35 states have passed or considered legislation on race education. Similarly, many corporations – even some that are privately held – are fearful of the ramifications of holding their leaders to account for leading inclusively.

“Gaslights and Dog Whistles” creates clarity out of the chaos and panic surrounding CRT. It provides intervention strategies, tactics, and approaches to address the critiques and assertions of CRT skeptics and the anti-CRT lobby. Ultimately, it illuminates the path to constructive dialogue to both understand divergent points of view and opens up a world of new possibilities for all of us to move from fear to partnership.
