Bill Resnick talks to Malik Miah who made a living as an aviation mechanic and spent most of his life fighting racism in the unions. He has written several books and hundreds of magazine pieces. Bill and Malik discuss Critical Race Theory – what it is, the complex ways racism is reproduced in this country, and how and why the right including the Republican Party is attacking its use in the schools and, in the process, seeking support from parents.
