Opinion | @KeishaBlain: The plan to center a Juneteenth event around so-called “displaced white refugees” is deeply racist. It’s also part of a larger effort to distort historical narratives and, in this case, miseducate the public about slavery in the US https://t.co/YClDnJWRIJ

Quoted @GovRicketts

Critical race theory is an attack on our country’s core values.

If a body of scholarship designed to explain how racism permeates American institutions "is an attack on our country's core values," what are those values? https://t.co/5887tByS57

I've said a version of this before. But making laws outlawing critical race theory confirms the point that racism is embedded in the law.
