Critical Race Theory and Interest Convergence in the Backlash Against Affirmative Action: Washington State and Initiative 200


by Edward Taylor ó 2000

The backlash against affirmative action is gaining political momentum as liberalismís defenses are overwhelmed. This article utilizes critical race theory (CRT) to present a counter-argument to both conservative calls for colorblindness and the incrementalism of traditional liberalism. Using Washington Stateís Initiative 200 as a case study, it argues that CRT not only can inform the debate over affirmative action, but has the potential to reinvigorate multiculturalismís social activist roots.
