We do have two Americas. Unless we start to understand why a wall has been erected to divide us the wall will never come down.
The ACLU emailed a podcast today that is a must listen for those who want to know why liberals and progressives are outraged at citizens, parents, and Republicans who are opposed to Critical Race Theory. It is only 35 minutes but it is very enlightening.
I have 2 1/2 pages of notes I could add, but I’m only going to give you a couple. Nowhere in this podcast are democrats blamed for anything. They aren’t blamed for the KKK, it is implied people showing up at school board meetings would support them today. White Supremacy is demanding cameras in classrooms while the same people don’t want police body cams.
This podcast is filled with easily disproven rhetoric, but if you don’t know the un-truths being told you can’t bridge the divide CRT is intended to create. We have to know. Take 35 minutes to listen, then comment.
One more hint: The lady being interviewed is associated with this website: https://www.aapf.org/
That website is associated with Howard Zinn, a guy who doesn’t think America is exceptional: https://www.howardzinn.org/myth-american-exceptionalism-mit/
