    Refreshingly straight-forward in its analysis and its proposed solution.

    The problem: civil rights law, gender equality and anti-harassment law.

    The solution: chuck em all.

    Repugs tactics in their racism strategy

    1. Repugs are not racist

    2. there is no American racism now

    3. racism and slavery not to be taught in k-12 or college

    4. Civil War was northern war of aggression against the honorable, peaceful Confederacy (no mention of slavery).

    5. white are the martyred victims of racism, not non-whites

    "woke" is Repug ridicule and denigration of people and talk of anti-racism

    From William Hazlitt's essay "On Predjudice"

    So far then from the charge lying against vulgar and illiterate prejudice as the bane of truth and common sense, the argument turns the other way; for the greatest, the most solemn, and mischievous absurdities that mankind have been the dupes of, they have imbibed from the dogmatism and vanity or hypocrisy of the self-styled wise and learned, who have imposed profitable fictions upon them for self-evident truths, and contrived to enlarge their power with their pretensions to knowledge. Every boor sees that the sun shines above his head; that 'the moon is made of green cheese,' is a fable that has been taught him. Defoe says, that there were a hundred thousand stout country-fellows in his time ready to fight to the death against popery, without knowing whether popery was a man or a horse.

    woke is nothing but ridiculing, insulting by racists like FK etc, of anti-racists. For the racists, anti-racism is the enemy, so must be JimCrowed to death

    There is also the hilarious myth America lies to itself with, that it's God's preferred country, aka The Chosen Country, is a shining light on the hill, Better Than All The Rest, moral/ethical/Christ-like paradise on earth.

    NONE of that is true, total and complete lying BULL

    Focusing on the definition of CRT misses the point of the current mediagenic moral panic, which gets way more mileage from turning CRT into a catchall. It's propaganda akin to the Red Scare of the 1950s.

    The point is to bully teachers from challenging the still prevalent lost cause mythology that puts the emphasis on the defense of cons utional rights and southern paternalism, rather than human bondage, the ideology of white superiority and the more or less continuous racist terrrorism since the Reconstruction.

    I will never forget when my grandad figured out I was Woke when I told him what our Texas History teacher taught us about the Alamo (John Wayne was left out of my version) The look on his face at a middle school student... my dad laughing and asking my grandad what was wrong. Comedy.

    This woke stuff can be fun.
    And it will work itself out because we have and will continue to crap in our pants like Uncle Donald.
    And people will be honest about where the smell comes from.

    long, detailed essay on neo-confederate ideology in public education.

    the DAC pretty much wrote the standards and did a lot of the public advocacy that ensured the lost cause ideology would dominate school textbooks in the southern US.


    Up until 1980, Mississippi's public schools used Lost Cause textbooks exclusively and it took a federal court order to make them stop.
    Consider what happened in Texas in 2010. As part of a highly publicized revamp of the state social studies curriculum, the Republican-controlled Texas Board of Education removed slavery as the central cause of the Civil War and replaced it with states' rights and secession, with Republican board member Patricia Hardy calling slavery "an after issue." The Republican members also considered referring to the slave trade as the "Atlantic Triangular Trade" before finally settling on "Transatlantic Slave Trade."


    The new curriculum was silent on the KKK during Reconstruction and failed to mention the Jim Crow era at all. It also equated Confederate President Jefferson Davis and Abraham Lincoln.
    It would be 2018 before the Texas standards were revised. They now blame slavery, secession, and states' rights equally as causes of the Civil War.

    I want to understand white rage and I'm white," Milley told lawmakers "What is it that caused thousands of people to assault this building and try to overturn the Cons ution of the United States of America?

    "I've read Mao Tse Tung. I've read Karl Marx. I've read Lenin. That doesn't make me a communist," Milley continued. "So what is wrong with understanding, having some situational understanding about the country for which we are here to defend?"
