Derrick Wilburn, a father of three and the leader of the Rocky Mountain Black Conservatives, says he fundamentally objects to Critical Race Theory and teachings “inspired by” Critical Race Theory (CRT) in K-12 classrooms. He also says he disagrees with the notion that “America is an oppressive nation to people of color.”

Dr. Phil references studies showing that, statistically, Black people and other people of color have higher rates of incarceration and receive stiffer sentences when convicted of committing similar crimes as white Americans.
