White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre called Florida Governor Ron DeSantis’ objections to the new Advanced Placement course in African American Studies for high schoolers “incomprehensible.” She said DeSantis wants to “block…the study of Black Americans.”
Shameful. This takes race-baiting to a new low.
The College Board that prepared the curriculum apparently agrees with DeSantis. It has just stripped away many of the topics DeSantis objected to. Are they racists too?
The College Board hasn’t released the curriculum publicly, but leaks reveal that the curriculum’s history of slavery and the Civil War remains intact. What the board eliminated is Critical Race Theory, unalloyed praise of the Black Lives Matter movement, reparations, and something called “Black Queer Studies.”
What is that? According to its authors, it’s “the concept of queer color critique, grounded in Black feminism and intersectionality, as a Black studies lens that shifts sexuality studies towards racial analysis.”
This is leftwing gobbledygook that has nothing to do with American history. How many in the media have alerted Americans to what is really being taught and WHY DeSantis tossed all this in the garbage bin. All this lunacy is going on when we have a four-alarm crisis in public schools with reading and math scores at their lowest level in decades.
