Default Florida bill could shield whites from ‘discomfort’ of racist past

Oookkkk

Florida could shield whites from ‘discomfort’ of racist past
A bill pushed by Republican Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis that would prohibit public schools and private businesses from making white people feel “discomfort” when they teach students or train employees about discrimination in the nation's past received its first approval Tuesday. The Senate Education Committee approved the bill that takes aim at critical race theory — though it doesn't mention it explicitly — on party lines, with Republicans in favor and Democrats opposed. Democrats argued the bill isn't needed, would lead to frivolous lawsuits and said it would amount to censorship in schools. They asked, without success, for real-life examples of teachers or businesses telling students or employees that they are racist because of their race...

“This bill's not for Blacks, this bill was not for any other race. This was directed to make whites not feel bad about what happened years ago,” said state Sen. Shevrin Jones, who is Black. “At no point did anyone say white people should be held responsible for what happened, but what I would ask my white counterparts is, are you an enabler of what happened or are you going to say we must talk about history?” DeSantis held a news conference last month in which he called critical race theory “crap," and said he would seek legislation that would allow parents to sue schools and employees to sue employers if they were subject to its teachings.

!st i've heard of this.
At 1st take it looks like reverse "SAFE SPACES" for snowflake white people who don't want to think about the racism of the US's past.
so they can claim they've been 'triggered' so they don't have learn history.
"erasing history" or something.

I suspect there's more to the story but ... maybe not.. the world has gone kinda crazy.
everyone is so sensitive about reality.

Use the RIGHT pronouns or else!
Teach America (American whites) have always been GOOD or else!

No, A Proposed Florida Law Doesn’t Make It Illegal To Make White People Feel ‘Discomfort.’ It’s A Hit Piece Against DeSantis.

Quote:
The Associated Press on Tuesday provided a wildly inaccurate description of a basic civil rights bill being pushed by Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-FL), falsely insisting that it would “prohibit public schools and private businesses from making white people feel ‘discomfort’ when they teach students or train employees about discrimination in the nation’s past.”

The bill mentions race but does not single out white people, and the relevant portion of the bill insists that subjecting people as a condition of their “employment, membership, certification, licensing, credentialing, or passing an examination, to training, instruction, or any other required activity” that members of any race, sex, or national origin are inherently racist, sexist of oppressive is wrong. The language is a shade more specific than typical civil rights protections.

The bill does mention the word “discomfort” twice, but it is not specific to white people. One section says that “An individual should feel discomfort, guilt, anguish, or any other form of psychological distress on account of his or her race, color, sex, or national origin.” The second mention is the same but is a subsection relating to the legislature’s acknowledgement that “all individuals are equal before the law and have inalienable rights.”

DeSantis’ spokeswoman Christina Pushaw pushed back against the AP report, noting that the word “white” nor any other specific race, is mentioned in the bill.

“The bill was introduced by a Hispanic lawmaker to prevent any kind of race essentialist indoctrination,” she added.

Rewriting or blocking inconvenient history. Where have I read that before...

and honestly what enlightened person would want to live in those states?

it says “An individual should NOT be made to feel discomfort, guilt, anguish, or any other form of psychological distress on account of his or her race, color, sex, or national origin.”
So yes the sentence is used by santis to protect white people

So I guess Germans can't sit in a class room where WWII history is taught?

The Germans kissing Hitler's butthole did it not do so because of their ethnic background, religion, et cetera. They did it for the same reason other deluded sycophants (redundancy) have done it. They were dumbasses.

Oh, let us be candid here, okay?

Presumably, your thinly veiled reference to "the predominantly stoopid people states" is a slight toward the Southern states (as regarding which, Florida is one).

Am I correct?
