Last week, Vice President Kamala Harris gave a fiery speech attacking Florida’s new standards for teaching African American history, in particular, the teaching about slavery. She said, “just yesterday in the state of Florida, they decided middle school students will be taught that enslaved people benefited from slavery. They insult us in an attempt to gaslight us, and we will not stand for it.” When you have absolutely no ability or skill as a politician, and you are completely unlikeable, your only resort is to try to enflame the racial divide in the country, and she has succeeded in doing so. NAACP President and CEO Derrick Johnson piggy-backed on Harris’ speech, calling the legislation “an attempt to bring our country back to a 19th century America where black life was not valued, nor our rights protected.”
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis called Harris’s remarks “absolutely ridiculous, totally outrageous”, and defended the legislation that he signed into law by stating, “these are the most robust standards in African American history, probably anywhere in the country. Anyone who reads that will see that it’s very thorough, very factual, and for them to try to demagogue it… Nobody is buying their nonsense anymore.”
Dr. William Allen, a black professor and a member of the Florida African American History Standards Workgroup, who co-authored Florida’s educational curriculum told Fox News that the newly approved curriculum that teaches students about slavery and black history, and “is devoted to telling the truth whereas Kamala Harris has retold a lie.”
