Do you support teaching Critical Race Theory? The NAACP weighs in on a Florida instance of the national effort by Republicans to ban the subject in schools. NAACP Statement on CRT bill in Florida - Director of Education Innovation and Research, Dr. Ivory Toldson "Florida Governor Ron DeSantis is backing legislation that prohibits public schools and private businesses from teaching aspects of history that make white people feel "discomfort." Like most Americans, I can trace my lineage back to the same racist enslavers whose crimes Gov. DeSantis is trying to conceal. However, we can also trace our lineage to abolitionists, enslaved insurrectionists, civil rights activists, and humanitarians. Undoubtedly, the intent of the white "discomfort" legislation is not to conceal the atrocities of historical white racists; it is to facilitate the agenda of present-day white racists. We recognize this tactic as nothing more than a way to revise the reality of history and erase the crimes committed against humanity. We will continue to push back against any and all attempts to dispel true American history." Source: https://naacp.org/articles/statement-governor-desantis-support-anti-critical-race-theory-bill
