It's nothing but a clumsy attempt to smear long-overdue inclusion of minority perspectives in curriculum. History is ugly and new lesson plans aren't even scratching the surface. Teachers could talk about how slave owners raped their "property" then enslaved their own mixed-race children. Or about how slaves were shackled and stacked like firewood in wooden ships for weeks with horrendous mortality rates. Or about how redlining in mortgage lending, sharecropping, and the prison industrial complex have put minorities on an uneven playing field in recent history. The GOP definitely doesn't want nice white kids in the South learning about any of that.
