“1619 Project” creator Nikole Hannah-Jones defended her revisionist history of the United States, claiming the fact that millions of Americans are wary about Critical Race Theory means that conservatives’ pro-white propaganda has spread.
A Pennsylvania school district unanimously voted on Tuesday to defy a bill if it were passed into law that prohibits teaching “racist” concepts, such as that any race is superior to another.
The Pittsburgh School District passed a resolution which said it would defy “harmful legislation,” such as the Republican-backed bill called HB 1532. “
Board member Devon Taliaferro said, “[Children] deserve leaders who will stand up for their rights and blasted “radical politicians” who she claimed were trying to censor curriculum.
“I hope that we will be the leaders that our students need as they carry on the legacy of the future… which starts with policy and the things that we can control.”
HB 1532, if it were passed into law, would prohibit teaching “racist and sexist concepts” in school districts, and is “aimed at curtailing the divisive nature of concepts more commonly known as ‘critical race theory.‘”
“Critical race theory further divides us by making the immutable traits of race and gender a prime factor in how we view others – exactly the opposite of Dr. [Martin Luther] King’s dream,” according to a description of the legislation.
“Our legislation makes it clear that no Pennsylvania school district, public postsecondary institution, or state or local government entity shall teach that any race or sex is superior to another, that any individual based on their race or sex is inherently racist or sexist, or that any individual should receive favorable treatment or be discriminated against based on their race or sex,” the bill states.
