STOP Teaching Kids That America Was Always Racist: How 1776 Unites is Winning the Battle Against Distorted, Damaging Histories

From Jerry Newcombe: "Already the Woodson Center has seen some changes: “As a result of our essays that we wrote … Nikole Hannah-Jones, who was the author of the 1619 Project actually revised it … We forced them to back away from, and change, the reasons for the Revolutionary War,” [said Mr. Woodson]. Initially, the 1619 Project promoted the false idea that America’s War for Independence was held for the purpose of protecting slavery.

Dr. Carol Swain argues that the 1619 Project sends a “very crippling message to our children” by conveying the idea that racism is in our national DNA. It basically says that no matter how hard you try, you will always be a victim of hopelessly racist America." Read the full essay here.

Assessing Police Killings of Black Americans:
1776 Unites scholar Robert Cherry puts the tragic headlines in context and finds the media stoking misguided fears

"Now, we are told, the problem is systemic racism that stunted academic skill development: [George] Floyd grew up in a housing project and was forced to go to inferior schools. Of course, [The Washington Post] ignored the downside of being raised in a single parent household or his decision not to expand his skills through vocational training. What ended Floyd’s life was indefensible, but the focus on systemic racism doesn’t help us guide others coming from his circumstances to make better choices." Read more at Real Clear Policy.
