Bizarro World USA

NYT quotes via Examiner:

The goal of The 1619 Project is to reframe American history. If you want to understand the brutality of American capitalism, you have to start on the plantation. The sugar that saturates the American diet has a barbaric history as the ‘white gold’ that fueled slavery. Why doesn’t the United States have universal healthcare? The answer begins with policies enacted after the Civil War. America holds onto an undemocratic assumption from its founding: that some people deserve more power than others. What does a traffic jam in Atlanta have to do with segregation? Quite a lot. Here you will find reading guides, activities, and other resources to bring The 1619 Project into your classroom. We will be sending some of our writers on multi-city tours to talk to students and we will be sending copies of the magazine to high schools and colleges. Because to us, this project really takes wing when young people are able to read this and understand the way that slavery has shaped their country’s history.

We were going to make some clever and snarky comments, but we’ll pass on that, only noting that these fools and the faculty lounges that taught them really believe this rubbish.

Brief insane NYT update: your lawn is evil too.
