(CNN)Board members in a New York school district attempted to discuss a diverse curriculum and critical thinking -- but it erupted into a debate about critical race theory.

The board meeting was not about critical race theory, but it didn't stop some members of the audience from demanding the Commack school board take a stance on the issue.

The other four board members in attendance agreed that they did not support what they understood critical race theory to be, but advocated for diversity and critical thinking in the curriculum.

That included the sole board member of color in attendance, Justin Varughese, who was repeatedly interrupted while trying to make a distinction between the curriculum's diversity efforts and the "bogeyman" of critical race theory.
