You wouldn’t think racial sensitivity training would be controversial, but that’s not the case.
For years, it’s been attacked by white supremacists and conservatives who want to shut Black people up – and now the president has granted them their wish.
President Donald Trump has alleged that training addressing topics like critical race theory and white privilege, which are norms in anti-racist teachings, are "divisive, anti-American propaganda."
The question this forces us to ask reveals the truth.
Racists think they can erase our history and silence us, but we know how important our stories are. Trump’s efforts only affirm how important it is to teach people about the power white supremacy has in this country. They will NEVER stop us from educating ourselves!
