Today’s quote from the New York Times 1619 Project:

“Some might argue that America was founded not as a democracy, but as a slavocracy.” – Nikole Hannah-Jones

This anti-American, opinion-based “history” is being taught as history in some Iowa schools. There is a bill in the Iowa House, however, to defund schools that teach The 1619 Project as a history curriculum.
