BANNING BOOKS IN FLORIDA-
A Florida law, passed in 2021, forbids instructional material from containing “the theory that racism is not merely the product of prejudice, but that racism is embedded in American society and its legal systems in order to uphold the supremacy of white persons,” or references to the 1619 Project, the New York Times work that focused on the role of slavery in the nation’s founding. In other words, do not make us and our White privileged feelings uncomfortable talking about our racism, and our enslaving Blacks based on the color of their skin.
THE LAW PRECLUDES material which contain “culturally responsive teaching as it relates to [critical race theory]” and “social justice as it relates to [critical race theory].”
THE LAW "ASKS" : Does "the book" solicit “social-emotional learning”?
The inclusion of any of those topics would be grounds for elimination.
TWO OF THE NEWEST ADDITIONS IN FLORIDA AND THE COUNTRY to the banned books list are:
Stamped: Racism, Antiracism, and You by Ibram X. Kendi and Jason Reynolds. This book, published in 2020, is a New York Times best-seller that explores issues related to race, racism, and anti-racism in America. It has been banned and challenged for allegedly including "selective storytelling incidents” and not including instances of racism against all people.
All American Boys by Jason Reynolds and Brendan Kiely. This is the first year that the book appeared in the list of top 10 most challenged books. It tells the story of two teenage boys as they handle police brutality and racism within their community. The book has been challenged for many reasons, including drug use, profanity, alcoholism, and anti-police sentiments.
AHH, BOOK BANNING IN GERMANY, ERR KKKFLORIDA AND AMERIKKKA.
