Texas GOPers don't want kids to learn about Martin Luther King, Jr., Susan B. Anthony, & Cesar Chavez, and they want kids to think the KKK wasn't morally wrong. Yeah, right!

 If Texas GOPers have their way, children in Texas schools will be, in their warped minds, "shielded" from actual history, such as the following:

*---Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s famous "I Have a Dream" speech, which can be easily accessed online, anyway.

*---Susan B. Anthony and the fight against suffrage, which led to the 19th Amendment.

*---Cesar Chavez, and the plight of migrant workers in California.

*---The truth about the Ku Klux Klan.


Why do Texas Repugnants want to do this, anyway? This is taking the fight against "critical race theory" a bit too far. Farron Cousins explains:

What these morons don't realize, or don't care to admit, is that this is denying students the truth about historical events that shaped this country. These fools are threatening to drag the Lone Star State back to the days of the Civil War, or further. Next thing ya know, they'll try to whitewash the Alamo.........

We can never end institutional racism by pretending that it doesn't exist. We must call it out wherever it is. As the old saying goes: those who forget history are doomed to repeat it.

I use that Santayana quote very often. Speaking of doom, I'd say the GOPers treat Citizen Pampers like he's a mashup of Dr. Doom & Darth Vader, the way they kow-tow to him.....
