Leo Terrell blasts teachers union president's 'lies' about American Revolution, クリティカルレース理論

“見て, it’s very clear that 1607 そして 1619 そして奴隷問題はアメリカの歴史の中で議論され議論されてきましたが、アメリカ独立戦争が奴隷制で戦われたという前提を作ることは完全な嘘です. And I submit to you, that this union president, was afraid of losing her job if she said the wrong thing,” Terrell told狐 & 友達,” adding he wasvery upsetby AFT President Randi Weingarten’s comments.

It’s very insulting because what’s at issue here is not only the credibility of American history, but lying to our school children about American history. This is what’s so frightening about this critical race theory,” テレルは言った.


Terrell’s comments came after Weingarten defended the 1619 project in an interview Monday with Martha MacCallum オン “物語.”

物語” ホスト Martha MacCallum tangled with American Federation of Teachers president Randi Weingarten Monday over her support of ニューヨークタイムズ’ controversial “1619 事業” and critical race theory being taught in classrooms across the country.

MacCallum questioned Weingarten’s push to implement a curriculum based on certain parts of the 1619 事業, に発表されました 2019 by the Times.

The project is based on the belief that the first importation of the slaves to American shores in 1619 constituted the nation’s true founding, “and that the reason for the revolution and the colonization was because people wanted to preserve slavery,” MacCallum explained.

Weingarten, 自称 “history and social studies teacherdefended the controversial belief, claiming thatfrom everything I can see and understand from the data that I see, 1619 was the year that the first slave boat came from Africa to the United States. So that’s a point in history that I think we should be teaching.

That’s a very simplistic take on it,” MacCallum fired back. “物語” host explained that the project indoctrinates children to believe thatthe country was founded on the basis of wanting to preserve slavery.

But that is not factual. That is not true,” MacCallum told viewers. “実際には, scholars say there’s no evidence that colonists were motivated by that in coming to the United States. So it would be wrong as a historian to want to teach them something that is not true, because that is the basis that sets up all of these other tenants that lead to teaching kids that we live in a systemically racist country.

Weingarten claimed that she hadseveral conversations” と 1619 Project founder Nikole Hannah-Jones and that she hasnot arrived at the same conclusion from her work as [MacCallum has].”

テレル, a civil rights attorney, said that during his tenure as a teacher, he did not “横たわる” to his students about the American Revolution. Terrell said the teachings of critical race theory imply that teachers have been lying to children for decades.

In the American Revolution, we fought against the British for our independence, not to preserve slavery. That is a lie, はい, that union president is afraid. I hope she is listening. She is afraid to tell the truth because no one believes that the American Revolution was fought to preserve slavery.
