Engaging the Spirit of Racial Healing within Critical Race Theory: An Exercise in Transformative Thought
Rebecca A. Tsosie
Arizona State University (ASU) - Sandra Day O'Connor College of Law
Michigan Journal of Race & Law, Vol. 11, No. 21, 2005
This article focuses on Critical Race Theory and two arguments associated with it: Idealist and Materialist. Professor Tsosie contends that both of these theories are important for understanding Critical Race Theory. She connects the two debated ideas with the concept of justice, another principle theme of Critical Race Theory. Tsosie talks specifically about the problems surrounding the status of Native Hawaiians to demonstrate how race is used as a basis for determining their civil and political rights. Professor Tsosie attempts to identify the foundation of Critical Race Theory as the need to achieve social justice for oppressed groups.
