Another move attempting to erase a dark period of this nation’s history occurred yesterday as WPBF-TV 25 reports that Governor Desantis’ administration has blocked African American Studies from being taught in high schools.

In a letter last week to the Florida College Board, the state education department said:


 “As presented, the content of this course is inexplicably contrary to Florida law and significantly lacks educational value, in the future, should College Board be willing to come back to the table with lawful, historically accurate content, (the education department) will always be willing to reopen the discussion”


Personally, I think the extreme systematic racism this country embraced in most of the 19th and 20th centuries should be taught to show students the progress or lack of how far (or not) the country has come with race relations.
