Southern Baptists Keep Quarreling Over Critical Race Theory
Seminary presidents issued a statement last week saying that “affirmation of Critical Race Theory, Intersectionality and any version of Critical Theory” is incompatible with the Baptist Faith and Message, the denomination’s core beliefs.

Their statement launched another wave of discussion around the place of critical race theory in Christian discourse and teaching, with fellow Southern Baptists and Christian leaders outside the denomination weighing in.

The term “critical race theory” (CRT) is frequently ill defined. According to scholars, it is an approach to the issue of racism that analyzes systems and biases embedded in social structures. ...

Well, I agree I was at fault and not reading the article from Christianity Today--which is good. ---especially if you took note of the following.

In it there was this reference:

Committee Members wrote:
Q: One of the concerns raised over the resolution is the origin of these theories. Does the committee acknowledge this concern? Does the committee or the resolution endorse CRT/I?

A: Yes, we understand the concern, and have benefitted from discussion with individuals who have expressed it. We want to be clear that we acknowledge CRT/I originates from people who are not Christians and hold views that oppose the Gospel. No one is claiming that CRT/I is Christian or that all of its cultural applications are in line with Scripture.

At the same time, as with other secular theories, not every observation is wrong, sinful or unhelpful. But even insights that describe the social dynamics of our society accurately remain insufficient to address the sinful heart of man....

excerpt from, "Q&A with the 2019 Resolutions Committee about Resolution 9"

Mike, the above might answer your comment?

There are Independent Baptist churches all over Lubbock. I don’t know why you don’t obey II Corinthians 6:14-17 and come out of the SBC cesspool. Many of my ancestors are buried at Southern Baptist churches, and the churches now are just as dead as they are.

Yes , I’m glad that Southern Baptist seminaries are “ standing against “ CRT. However, many of the same seminary presidents were supporters of BLM , which is the incarnation of the Black Panther Party. So., for everyone to speak the same voice.. now, is disingenuous. Watch John Piper explain his view of CRT or even Danny Akin or JD Greear. It would be refreshing if seminary presidents just encouraged the Bible and didn’t spend their time firing conservative professors , much like Al Mohler firing of 4 conservative professors who stood against CRT, cultural Marxism and the collapsed tier of what once was the evangelical missionary vision of the SBC.
So when good ol Al Mohler speaks against CRT , remember, he fired professors who were against it before he was for it when the heat of the kitchen fire became unbearable. So, he changed the conversation.

The smallest minority is the individual. Group think is for those who value that which has no value, things such as skin shade.

Leviticus 19:14-16 - 14 You must not curse the deaf or put a stumbling block in front of the blind, but you are to fear your God; I am Yahweh.

15 “You must not act unjustly when deciding a case. Do not be partial to the poor or give preference to the rich; judge your neighbor fairly. 16 You must not go about spreading slander among your people; you must not jeopardize your neighbor’s life; I am Yahweh.

1 Corinthians 5:12-13 - 12 For what business is it of mine to judge outsiders? Don’t you judge those who are inside? 13 But God judges outsiders. Put away the evil person from among yourselves.

Churches must put their focus back on events within the Body but, at the same time, be the Good Samaritan to those outside.

Timothy, considering Nebraska's one of the Whiter States, we can't blame racism for the amount of incarceration of Whites besides other races in the state, I would say also. Christianity Today did mention Trump's problem with the idea, without going into detail. the following article will go into little more detail.

No doubt, one of the better articles on how Critical Race Theory came to be and what it is

"President Trump Has Attacked Critical Race Theory. Here's What to Know About the Intellectual Movement"

Jim, do you suppose mass incarceration could just possibly be a result of mass lawbreaking? Or that being poor may be a consequence of poor choices? It’s just something to think about sometime when you’re not having other liberals doing your thinking for you.

Emma Green wrote:
...Since at least 1995, the church has been publicly repenting for its history of racial discrimination. Arguably, it has made progress; minority participation in Southern Baptist congregations has blossomed. Yet after two decades, the public-policy arm of the church is still focused almost exclusively on conservative social issues, rather than topics like poverty and mass incarceration, which have a significant impact on racial disparities in America....
“Most of my white brothers and sisters place a great emphasis on individualism and meritocracy,” said Thabiti Anyabwile, a black pastor who heads a church in southeast D.C. “Most of my African American brothers and sisters, we've had a group experience. Our experience in this country has been defined first and foremost by this pigment that we share. So when we have these conversations about how to make progress, African Americans go to group experience pretty quickly. We speak in ‘we.’ And white Americans go pretty quickly to individual and speak of ‘I.’”

Leave it to Christianity Today to muddle things regarding this latest flash point between Progressive and Biblical perspectives.

CRT is not ill-defined. Good for those seminary presidents to stand up against it.
