Once the United States abolished the despicable Jim Crow laws of the Dixiecrat Democrats, systemic racism began to disappear. Those systemically racist laws literally ruined the progress the black people were making after slavery. Jim Crow kept them from land ownership, decent schools, and living a life of equality.
Democrats still like Jim Crow laws, only now they are aimed at whites alone. Their laws favoring all people over whites are systemically racist laws.
Last night, a history scholar was on Life, Liberty and Levin. Professor Peter Wood, President of the National Association of Scholars, expressed his deep concerns about the 1619 Project, a new, dishonest telling of history that is currently in 3500 school districts so far. It is anti-American and anti-White. It is also anti-Semitic.
None of what you are being told in this retelling is true, and it was concocted by non-historians who are also left-wing journalists.
A newspaper, the NY Times, thinks they have the right to re-write history.
