The Facts

  • The Florida Senate Education Committee has approved a bill banning workplaces and schools from causing people to feel 'discomfort' or 'guilt' because of their race, sex or national origin.

  • Though not explicitly mentioned, the bill reportedly attempts to prohibit concepts related to CRT.


The Spin

Left narrative

This is another attempt to whitewash Black history and make white people feel better. You can't teach important topics like slavery if you're worried about causing "discomfort."

Right narrative

The bill doesn't ban uncomfortable subjects from being discussed; it codifies the idea that nobody is inherently racist, sexist or oppressive solely by the virtue of their race or sex.
