Smells like outright black descrimination and racism by gov. DeSantis of Florida!!!

The department of education says why Florida does not want Black History Classes.

This crap by the DeSantis administration is incredible. It stinks of black discrimination and racism.

"Florida Explains Why It Blocked Black History Class—and It’s a Doozy"

"The Florida Department of Education says it banned AP African American History because it teaches students about activism, intersectionality and encourages “ending the war on Black trans, queer, gender non-conforming, and intersex people,” according to a document the department sent to The Daily Beast.

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis rejected a request from the College Board to provide the class in high school classes in the state Wednesday. The move comes in the same week the far-right Republican—who a judge just ruled violated free speech laws by firing a prosecutor for being “woke”—requested info on trans students from universities state-wide.

DeSantis’ administration further made their anti-LGBTQ stance known in their explanation for prohibiting the class, simply listing “Black Queer Studies” as a violation of state law.

A representative for DeSantis said the now-banned class “lacks educational value and historical accuracy” in a statement to The Daily Beast."

1. DeSantis is providing compelling evidence confirming Critical Race Theory claims

2. Let me explain.

I briefly attended a school in his town (Pointe Vedra) in 1980, about 10 years after integration. Recess and lunch consisted of 25 white kids playing dodgeball against 2 black kids.

Let's please change the discussion and call it doe what it is. DeSantis and Florida Republicans are as racist now as Floridians we're in 1950, even if they find Black Republicans useful. so this shouldn't surprise anyone.

DeSantis predictably opposed Black studies because his beliefs are that white people were just treating black people the way they deserved.
