Anti Oppressive Practice AOP I have chosen AOP as the second critical theory in this piece because I believe it is compatible and intersects well with the components of CRT. AOP is a principle and a theory that seeks radical change to how society is structured by advocating for anti-racial and anti-discriminatory on how power and wealth is determined and shared, a change for social justice just as CRT. (Robins 2011) describes AOP as a central on the misuse and usage of power on and by different system within community.

He shows that people need to rely on themselves in order for this world to move forward and improve. Emerson builds the audience’s confidence in their own abilities in order to persuade them to lead social reforms and change society for the better. Throughout Emerson’s essay “Self-Reliance”, anaphora, metaphors, and various tropes and schemes are used to personify and exemplify the actions that need to occur so that the transcendentalist philosophy can come to fruition. Education, slavery, and rights for women and Native Americans are inspired to become a social norm and in order for that to occur, people need to rely on themselves.
