Rep. Byron Donalds (R-Fla.) ain’t happy with the effort by his Govner to sell slavey as a ‘benefit’ for Blacks…..
And he’s gotta be REAL stupid…..
Other’s are giving him a hard time because they think the Black guy should joining his party in dissing his ancestors realities…
Oh, The Trump people come down on this on Donalds side against DeSantis…..
Rep. Byron Donalds (R-Fla.) clashed Wednesday with aides to Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis and his presidential campaign after the congressman expressed reservations about new education guidelines in the state focused on African American history.
Donalds, the lone Black Republican in the Florida congressional delegation and a supporter of former President Donald Trump’s 2024 bid, tweeted that the state’s new standards for African-American history are “good, robust, & accurate.”
“That being said, the attempt to feature the personal benefits of slavery is wrong & needs to be adjusted. That obviously wasn’t the goal & I have faith that FLDOE will correct this,” Donalds tweeted.
Florida’s new guidelines, which passed last week, require lessons on race to be taught in an “objective” manner that does not seek to “indoctrinate or persuade students to a particular point of view.”….
DeSantis aides were quick to criticize Donalds, accusing him of parroting White House talking points in the wake of sharp criticism from Vice President Harris and other administration officials.
“Supposed conservatives in the federal government are pushing the same false narrative that originated from the @WhiteHouse,” Jeremy Redfern, DeSantis’ press secretary, tweeted in response to Donalds. “Florida isn’t going to hide the truth for political convenience. Maybe the congressman shouldn’t swing for the liberal media fences like @VP.”
Donalds responded with surprise that he was taking incoming after expressing support for most of the changes…..
