David Waldman delivers us to Friday! Probably because he didn’t have to drive over a bridge in Pittsburgh to get there.
Who isn’t wild about Harry? The same Tennessee school board against Maus, because of “the cussing”, believe the song “I’m Just Wild About Harry” is a little “too hot” for kids... Ironic isn’t it, that the song was originally controversial for implying that Black people were capable of romantic relationships? In the board’s defense, they might not have been aware of that, as that district has always been untouched by CRT, and that song has long been purged of race… pretty much.
You’d think ol’ times there are not forgotten, but some do have selective memories. Glenn Youngkin is banning the teaching of “critical race theory” in his state but forgot he helped set it up in his kid’s school. In Florida, civil rights are a memory some would prefer to soon forget. Fox News can’t remember any Black people that made it through school. (Republicans on the judiciary committee will sure be surprised to see a Black woman in business attire.) Joe Rogan actually can’t remember seeing a Black person outside of a National Geographic.
Senior Black Correspondent Darwin H.M. reports that the NFL is down to a single Black head coach after it pledged to do better with diversity, as Black coaches are required only successes and allowed no mistakes over any season.
Sarah Palin, on the other hand, can be as dumb as wants, wherever she wants, and waiters will find her the best table.
Texas redistricted to reduce Black and Hispanic voting power. That’s probably against the law, but they’ll work around that also. Arizona will just pass a law to allow them to change any election they don’t like.
The Equal Rights Amendment has been almost for most lifetimes, but maybe it’s more almost now.
