Kamala Harris: Slavery “Benefits” in Classrooms? What’s Next, Dinosaurs in Politics? 🦖📚
TL:DR; Kamala Harris gets fired up in Florida! 🌴 VP Harris throws shade at the state’s education board for suggesting Black people benefited from slavery. Asks: What are we REALLY teaching our kids? 🤷♂️🎒
In sunny Jacksonville, VP Kamala Harris had some not-so-sunny words for Florida’s education leaders. Like a scene from a blockbuster movie, she stood strong in front of educators, lawyers, activists, and lawmakers, vowing to challenge the curious claim that Black people might’ve had a few perks from… slavery? 😲 Yeah, you read that right.
So, who’s the antagonist in our plot? According to Harris, it’s those she brands as “extremist so-called leaders”. Think of them as the villains trying to “rewrite American history”, possibly with a quill from the 1800s. 🕰️
But wait, there’s more! These leaders aren’t just writing fairy tales about slavery. Harris points out they’ve been busy little bees 🐝 banning books and pushing other, let’s say, ‘questionable’ laws in Florida. Ever heard of the ‘Don’t Say Gay’ ban? Or what about the prohibition of certain classroom reads and changes in voting and reproductive rights? Our VP’s on a roll, folks!
“Outrageous” was the word of the day for Harris as she took on the recent decisions by Florida’s education board. She called their moves “an abject and purposeful and intentional policy to mislead our children.” Strong words, but then again, what’s more crucial than our future, aka our kids? 🧒👧
Harris wasn’t all about the doom and gloom, though. She sounded the rallying cry, asking Americans to group up – like an epic team-up of superheroes 🦸♂️🦸♀️ – and stand together for truths foundational to America.
To top it all off, in true cinematic climax style, she declared: “Let us stand always for what we know is right. Let us fight for what is right. And when we fight, we win.” 🎬🍿
So, here’s a brain teaser for ya: When classrooms start suggesting the ‘benefits’ of slavery, what’s the next big twist in our educational plotline? Dinosaurs in the Senate? Aliens founding the U.S? 🛸🗽
