Kamala Harris Is Terrified
Because If Your Kids Learn This In School, It's Over For The Establishment.
Richard Phillips spent 46 years in prison for a crime he didn’t commit.
While incarcerated, he learned to paint. When he got out, those paintings would sell for thousands.
Louis Zamperini was a US Air Force bombardier shot down in the Pacific in 1943 and then captured and tortured in multiple Japanese POW camps for over two years.
But he learned about gratitude, going as far as to write letters to his captors years later, forgiving them.
Classical artist Andrea Bocelli was blinded by glaucoma at 12 years old. But his ears and windpipe worked just fine, so he focused on singing and playing music.
He would become the “world’s most beloved tenor.”
While successful, I doubt these people would call their challenges “good things,” yet they found silver linings in their misfortune.
And something similar happened when black slaves were freed.
For example, a slave that worked as a blacksmith could pass that skill to others or gain employment molding metals.
Believe it or not, slaves performed tasks that people make a living doing today, such as cooking, carpentry, boat operations, or seamstressing.
But most schools teach us captivity only consisted of blacks picking cotton while white men whipped them from atop a horse.
And Florida wants to change that.
Unfortunately, Kamala Harris, among others, condemned the recently approved curriculum, claiming it teaches students that blacks overall benefited from slavery in an attempt to “whitewash history.”
But these teachers plan to clue kids in on much more, and Kamala is panicking.
Blacks Benefited From Slavery?
When Florida passed the Parental Rights in Education Bill, leftists branded the legislation as the “Don’t Say Gay Bill,” leading people to believe the word “gay” was restricted in schools.
But it was a lie.
In reality, the law only barred schools from including LGBT content in the curriculum for students under eleven years old.
More on that here:
And they’re doing the same thing with Florida’s 2023 State Academic Standards for Social Studies, which directs educators on what material to teach students.
Here’s the section Kamala and others denounced:
The cackling hens at The View weighed in, questioning whether Florida educators consulted with black people.
An unnecessary task as black people were among the writers that created the standards.
How racist of Whoopi to assume the policymakers were white.
Dr. William B. Allen, a political advisor that’s written books such as Rethinking Uncle Tom: The Political Thought of Harriet Beecher Stowe, assisted in approving Florida’s African-American history curriculum.
And yes, he’s black.
Here’s what he said in response to Harris’ accusations, according to Jacksonville.com:
I just want to foster and encourage everyone to take the time to read, or as I said in my response to the vice president, I think every intellect can understand the language written there if people only take the time to read it,-It’s only those who don’t take the time to read it who will misstate it. -Dr. William B. Allen
So I did.

What’s Really In The Curriculum
To sum it up, nowhere within the standards claim slavery was a good thing, nor does it shy away from the horrors of our history:
It goes on to describe Reconstruction and the violence that came with it:
It also includes the oppression of other groups, such as Jewish, Native American, and Asian peoples.
So why did Kamala and others attack the agenda and its creators?
Because it teaches that slavery existed in every society in history and that Africans kidnapped their own people and sold them to white slave traders.
It also describes how blacks helped build this country, fought in wars, invented things, created art, and persevered despite enslavement and discrimination.
And the establishment wants black people to maintain a victim mentality and avoid discussing modern-day slavery and trafficking.
But it’s all a distraction.
Because Kamala and the establishment are terrified your kids might learn the following.
Don’t Let The Kids Learn This!

A corrupt government that wishes to expand will do anything to survive, which means ensuring people can’t care for themselves.
Our government put us through the wringer, destroying businesses, lying, and tearing this country apart.
They don’t want us to understand history, how to grow, or see we’re on a dangerous path.
They want us to be sick, dumb, and racist, so we don’t realize the real issue is the establishment vs. everyday Americans.
Not Democrats vs. Republicans.
But perhaps most importantly, they don’t want us to know what it is to be free.
Like Phillips and Zamperini, they want us locked up and isolated.
And they want us blinded like Bocelli.
But as many oppressed groups and individuals have done before, Americans will persevere.
