I think it’s going to cause a lot of divisions. I think it’ll cause people to think of themselves more as a member of a particular race based on skin color, rather than based on the content of their character and based on their hard work and what they’re trying to accomplish in life.
Gabe Kaminsky in The Federalist, explains Governor DeSantis’s banning Critical Race Theory in Florida schools:
The new law states classes must “be factual and objective, and may not suppress or distort significant historical events, such as the Holocaust, and may not define American history as something other than the creation of a new nation based largely on universal principles stated in the Declaration of Independence.”
It also instructs teachers to have conversations with kids “appropriate for the age and maturity level of the students.”
Florida’s decision comes a month after DeSantis vowed to take action on critical race theory. He told reporters at a press conference it is offensive for taxpayer funds to go toward indoctrination.
Florida joins Iowa, Tennessee, and Idaho in this decision. As Critical Race Theory infects more and more schools with its divisive rhetoric and hate, it is wonderful to hear that at least some states are combatting an ideology that defines individuals by their race, rather than their individuality.
