Seems like you don't understand what CRT is, then. CRT states that oppression is inherent in all cases where majorities or powers exist. He's basically saying that if that's true, then he couldn't have succeeded due to his supposed impossible disadvantages. He's not directly challenging the practical expressions of systemic racism, etc....(which are real) He's challenging the theory, itself, to show that it's not the absolute, factual law that some people have started to believe.
It says that systematic racism was the basis and foundation of ALL the Systems that were created by the White Majority in order to protect their status.
It doesn't mean that all of those systems are still the same today or haven't changed over time. It just says that all the public, social, and economic systems were created to be inherently favorable to the white person and discriminate against the POC.
It says the basis of all our systems was racist when it was started, and MANY of those initial racist systematic things STILL exist to this day...thus making the social, public, and economic systems inherently racist until the fallacies of the unbalanced beginnings of the system can be adjusted and made fair for all races
