He compares it to "an exorcism"

I have to think there is something about the CRT hoax that has created an internal debate for your nephew.

In general I think the GOP's CRT hoax has created a teachable moment -- "You want to ban history? Hmmm..why?"

He can substitute black for white in his fantasy version of history and yet there is no denying that race-based slavery never happened to white people in America. There are no word games or mental gymnastics that can point to a white version of the Black Wall Street Massacre of 1921 or make Obama into the inverse of Woodrow Wilson.

What DID happen? Real families, real people, real children were chained and groomed and displayed and traded like so many used cars without regard to their humanity. Americans SHOULD be embarrassed and therefore they should have some desire to erase the ugly parts of the truth but they should not be allowed to actually do so.

Facing facts may be the more painful and more challenging path but it is the only path that leads to the future.
