Ugly freedoms

A colleague recently shared this guest essay from NY Times on the ways in which freedom is appealed to in order to block things such as the teaching of critical race theory. It argues that freedom can be used to exclude and harm minorities, rather than being a right for all. 

It's a shame that this is too late for this year's iteration of PAIR1004, but it's something that might well be useful in future.

Disappointing though that the NY Times refer to the author as 'Ms. Anker' even while describing her as a professor. (I don't know her, but she seems to be an associate professor.)
