“Whitewashing History” 0
The Richmond Times-Dispatch’s Michael Paul Williams explains, in the context of a column about Virginia Governor Glenn Youngkin, whose first official act was to ban critical race theory in schools, where, again, it is not taught. A nugget (emphasis added):
Youngkin, in his order, gives an obligatory nod toward teaching about “the horrors of American slavery and segregation, and our country’s treatment of Native Americans.” But then, he absurdly opines that “critical race theory and related concepts are teaching our children to engage in the very behavior the Constitution prohibits.”
This all-consuming concern over “inherently divisive concepts” and the Constitution is rich coming from a member of a political party in thrall to a former president so divisive that he inspired an insurrection that the vast majority of GOP lawmakers are loath to acknowledge or investigate.
