From the AP:

Florida could shield whites from ‘discomfort’ of racist past

A bill pushed by Republican Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis that would prohibit public schools and private businesses from making white people feel “discomfort” when they teach students or train employees about discrimination in the nation’s past received its first approval Tuesday.

“This bill’s not for Blacks, this bill was not for any other race. This was directed to make whites not feel bad about what happened years ago,” said state Sen. Shevrin Jones, who is Black. “At no point did anyone say white people should be held responsible for what happened, but what I would ask my white counterparts is, are you an enabler of what happened or are you going to say we must talk about history?”

The AP doesn’t even tell you the name of the bill so you can go look at it yourself.

Vanity Fair has probably the worst headline on this bill:

Florida Advances Bill That Would Ban Making White People Feel Bad About Racism, and No, That’s Not a Joke

CCN’s headline is almost as bad:

Florida bill to shield people from feeling ‘discomfort’ over historic actions by their race, nationality or gender approved by Senate committee

This is all red meat for the white fragility crowd.

Ron DeSantis is a white supremacist who must censor free speech to keep delicate white people from having their feelings hurt.

Except thats not true.

The bill is SB148 and this is what is says:

 

 

So the bill says aabsolutely nothing about not making white people uncomfortable.

It if fact says nothing at all about white people.

What it does say is that you cannot discriminate based on race, make people feel guilty about their race, or assign moral value to people because of their race.

The bill also explicitly requires teaching about slavery, the Civil Rights Movement, and the Holocaust.  It just cannot be done in a way that states or implies people living today bear and collective guilt for past atrocities they did not participate in because of their race.

All of this strikes right at the heart of what Critical Race Theory teaches, i.e., that white people today have a collective blood guilt for past grievances and should be forced to pay recompense because of it.

That’s why the media must slander this bill.

Any normal person who reads it, including traditional moderate Liberals, would have no objection to it and really wonder at the motives of those who did object to it.

What sort of monster doesn’t want to ban making people feel guilty because of their race?

The media can’t let people know what’s actually in the bill and they have to hang it like an Albatros  around the neck of Ron DeSantis because they are scared absolutely shitless of him.

You have the text of the bill now.

It is your duty to use it and counter the narrative whenever you see it on social media.

If you have normie friends who are aghast at what DeSantis is doing, show them the text of the bill and ask what’s so objectionable about it.

This bill needs to pass in Florida then the Republicans need to pass it again at the Federal level nationwide.

  1. I don’t know why this would bother them. The left’s education industrial complex has been trying to protect students from ‘discomfort’ for a while, especially the ‘discomfort’ of failure.

  2. The leftists talk about equity, not equality. They are adamantly opposed to equality. This bill says everyone is equal, and singling out any group is wrong.

    But… in order for the poor oppressed blacks (who are, for the most part, dead now) to feel equal, they have to be in a position of dominance. (Equity, not equality).

    It is not enough for whites to treat blacks as equal. Whites must elevate blacks above them. And, this bill says “Nope. Not happening.” thus, it must be slandered

  3. Battlefield Prep for 2024. Everyone will point to these news stories with lurid headlines, and other similar stories that will be published in the next 12 months before the 2023 Presidential Campaign Season starts. The idea is to hamstring one of the best Republican Candidates.

    They will do little to attack some candidates like JEB!, because they prefer them. They know these candidates and don’t hate them like they hate Trump, Cruz, and DeSantis.

    1. You are going to see lots of stories about lots of potential Presidential Candidates. Take them all with a huge grain of Salt like J.kB is doing. Do not believe them without vetting them.

  4. “are you an enabler of what happened”

    Hm.

    Anyone else see a problem with that question?

    Grammatically, it’s called mixing tenses, but I’m pretty sure it’s not just a simple grammatical mistake.

    He’s saying that if white people don’t “feel uncomfortable” about what happened in the past, said white people are somehow enabling what happened in the past.

    How, specifically, can someone be an “enabler” of something that happened long before they were born?

    So basically he’s saying that we’re not responsible for what happened in the past but we should feel guilty about it anyway…or something.

    Not to mention that the statement immediately preceding that question is patently false: “At no point did anyone say white people should be held responsible for what happened”.

    So, at no point has anyone suggested that white people owe blacks “reparations” for what happened in the past? ‘Cause being required to pay reparations sure sounds a lot like being held responsible to me.

    I’m guessing that State Senator Shevrin Jones holds an advanced academic degree. Only a victim of higher education could make such a contradictory and logic-free (not to mention dishonest) statement and expect it to be received as accurate and profound.

    1. Yup. From Wikipedia:

      “He attended Florida A&M University, where he graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in biochemistry and molecular biology in 2006.

      In 2017 Jones obtained a Masters of Education from Florida Atlantic University. He later earned a PhD from the same institution.”

      Doctorate in Education no less. That explains a lot.

      I wonder if he insists that people call him “Dr.”
