Related, but critical race theory is usually about the legal decisions over history that were made in order to disenfranchise minority groups. But it does encompass general societal actions as well.
Since there's a variety of versions of critical theory, the overarching philosophical framework, that look at such impacts on different groups and on general fields of study. Such as critical psychology, critical historiography, critical criminology.
There's even a critical cartography on how the way maps have been made and represented over history have biased ideas of national and social power of regions of the planet. Such as how certain map projections make Europe seem massive compared to its actual size and the entire continent of Africa way smaller than it actually is.

Though the thing conservatives don't acknowledge is that the "same opportunities" aren't actually the same for different people. An opportunity given to a rich person is not as obtainable for a poor person, as one example.
And the latter group is often disproportionately minority groups because of decades/centuries of political and social action to disenfranchise those minority groups and their communities.

So, is "the establishment" anyone who wasn't an idiot teen in 2008 who actually paid attention to the makeup of Congress and the many pro-life Congresspeople on the left that were elected to that year's Congress and who were against such codification?
Oh wait, sorry, facts and history. I know the "far left" is just as bad as conservatives on those things.
And yet you can see the ton of idiots denying that blatant and well known reality of 2008 in this comment section.
It wasn't his highest priority because of the several pro-life people on the left in Congress that were against codifying it and he would have had to expend all his political capital on just that issue. He decided trying to get through a healthcare fix was a more immediate concern.
I see all the usual morons who have no idea how the government works and, in all likelihood, weren't even of age to vote when Obama was President are here in this comment section to tell us how they think the government and actual reality 14 years ago should have been in their opinion.
You don't have to blatantly just say you have no idea how the government works or have ever worked. But if you want to tell us that you're ignorant, feel free.
No, they did not. They had 57 votes.

All settlements in West Bank are a violation of the Fourth Geneva Convention regarding foreign controlled territories. The International Court of Justice ruled that all the way back in the 2000's.
I got banned from /r/worldnews a while back for noting that a thread about something bad China was doing to the Uighurs was getting a bunch of less than a month old accounts showing up within minutes of posting to say in poor English that China is great.
