All heil Donald!

 

Charlottesville

The critical race theory below from American Historian Heather Cox Richardson showed up in my email last night, and I could not help myself.

Very nice, Heather.
Often have I quoted the Declaration of Independence as the "red-eye-law" for the founding of USA.
Alas, the Declaration was written and signed by white men, and while it says all men are created equal, it did not mean that, obviously. And, it left out women having any unalienable rights at all.
I found this online just now: 
 
"Five decades after the ERA was approved by Congress in 1972, Virginia ratified the amendment in 2020, and the quorum of 38 states was finally reached. A federal judge ruled this month that it’s too late to add the amendment to the constitution, because the process should have been concluded nearly forty years ago." 
 
Ruth Bader Ginsburg was quoted as saying she would be satisfied when there were 9 women on the U.S. Supreme Court.
In the Declaration are 4 separate reverences to Deity, none of which resemble Christian lingo. But then, the author Thomas Jefferson was a Deist. I read some years ago that he led the charge in his home state Virginia's Legislature to stop it from making Christianity Virginia's official religion.
I don't hear or see anything about that critical history being taught in American schools.
Nor schools teaching that JFK, RFK and MLK all were killed after they opposed a rich white man's war in Vietnam.
I sometimes wonder out loud if black U.S. Military service men and women fighting rich white men wars overseas are still pickin' cotton?
Meanwhile, the South as risen again, so to speak, and the Confederacy's new national capitol is Mar-a-Lago, and if you doubt that, look at photos and film footages of the Jan 6, 2021 riot in the national Capitol, of any large Trump rally, and of the 2017 Charlottesville rally. Look at the seas of white faces. All heil Donald!!!
