GOP sensitivity training takes place in room named for plantation


The House GOP is learning about “successful communication with minorities and women" in a very unusual setting

BY KATIE MCDONOUGH


The Burwells were among the “First Families” in the Colony of Virginia. They also happened to own several plantations — and slaves.

So naturally the GOP would host lawmakers eager to learn about “successful communication with minorities and women” in a room named for those plantations.

Naturally.
