    NYC primary clusterfuck

    Well, Georgia (and other states) have repeatedly stated their intentions to do so over the years, and have repeatedly used methods that disproportionally target young and nonwhite voters using means that are known for a high number of false positives. This , in comparison, the usual...

    Did you take a class in critical race theory?

    :lol: Insn't this that same clown that drew doctors and nurses dancing right outside the room of some grandma that died of COVID? What a jackass. Ah. The OP. Nope, and what little i do know is picked up from actual experts on twitter, news clips, etc. But even an hour of research shows...

    Did you take a class in critical race theory?

    I knew who he was years ago. I never heard about any serious connection to CRT until the far right started screeching about him. Not a shock to hear he knows a bit about it, as it runs somewhat alongside his personal advise line of fighting racism, in the same society, with all the same...

    Universities should be free speech zones!!!11!1one

    Howling that the government should outlaw broad categories of speech is certainly contradictory to espousing "free speech". Not sure how that confuses you. Actually, it's long established that university teachers have a broad right to free speech in lectures, aside from those that directly...

    Did you take a class in critical race theory?

    Sounds like the standard far-right extremist line to me. More screaming about the horrors of "diversity", "the 1619 project", unsourced tales about some local school curriculum or other, and so forth. Did you think this video would help you somehow?

    Happy Juneteenth one and all!

    "teaching of history with the neoracist CRT" is the position your side in the debate has taken, by conflating it with, among other things, the 1619 project, "controversial" topics, and so forth. By the way, here's an article on a similar right-wing freakout back in the 60s that you likely won't...

    Happy Juneteenth one and all!

    You may remember this same logic from "BLM is Marxist!" (it's not really, the vast majority of people involved are still concerned with police brutality) and "BLM is a terrorist group!" (still 0 people killed, and no planned or executed terrorist attacks, in mid-2021). Basically, the same...

    Universities should be free speech zones!!!11!1one

    Well, the real problem with Coulter and particularly Milo is that they target specific students for harm, which is a gross violation of the university's obligations to the student body. He shouldn't be allowed to give public speeches not because he's "conservative", but because he's a threat to...

    Happy Juneteenth one and all!

    Well, the "useful" point, as far as CRT goes, is that it was a product of black legal scholars as a continuation of the Civil Rights movement, by demonstrating that "colorblind" equality was more ore less worthless, and a serious consideration of race is merited and likely required. ...by the...

    Happy Juneteenth one and all!

    And it ends at the exact same discussion, which is the point I was making. This has nothing to do with "CRT", it's the same attempt to stifle basic history/social studies.

    Happy Juneteenth one and all!

    Particularly true given how incredibly quickly right-wingers insert race into just about anything - eg. "Obamacare/the stimulus is reparations", "Obama banned deepwater offshore drilling because he's a Kenyan anti-colonialist and not because of that disastrous spill in the Gulf, he's not even...

    Happy Juneteenth one and all!

    Yes, we went over that, and why it's such a badly written piece of legislation. Nothing to do with CRT, regardless.

    Happy Juneteenth one and all!

    Well, since CRT explicitly rejects the idea of an "inferior race", you'll have to quote that specific part of the law. Oh, and the fact that many of these state laws are phrased stupidly is *exactly* the point.

    Happy Juneteenth one and all!

    I mean, who wouldn't turn to their racist violent murderous police to protect them from harm even though this police force, like others in the US, likely has a dismal crime clearance rate in the low-mid single digits, and helped lay siege to a community in Ferguson not too long ago? Anyway...

    Happy Juneteenth one and all!

    Few of them even mention "Critical Race Theory", although many of them do mention "the 1619 Project" which is completely different. I note that the 1619 project is "divisive and racist" because it frames 1619 as the start of the US (when one marks the "start" of nthe US is of course arbitrary)...

    Happy Juneteenth one and all!

    What's dishonest about it? If some parents say "I don't like that", then it's controversial. If some kid's upset because he says "slavers were white, teacher says they're bad, I'm white and thus bad." That's another problem. Oh it also says you can't teach the idea that one race is superior...

    Happy Juneteenth one and all!

    Except... You then have to explain *why* there was a racist, brutal system of chattel slavery, and if you want to be honest, that this was when the Emancipation Proclamation was *enforced*, not just when people heard of it (they knew of it very quickly due to southerners in other states...

    Happy Juneteenth one and all!

    I mean, yeah, when you're literally trying to outlaw any teaching of "controversies" or "racial subjects", it'll be linda difficult to discuss what Juneteenth is about. And it's obvious that these "anti-CRT laws are really about preserving Lost Cause mythology and other such garbage, in the...

    Texas in Crisis

    Seems like the sort of thing you expect when you elect people to actually run the state and local governments, instead of wallowing is culture war nonsense. Who knew? Well, probably the folks that vote for dems in Texas, first and foremost.
