Black advocacy group warns against travel to Florida – RT World News

NAACP Says Gov. Ron DeSantis’ Anti-Revival Rhetoric Is ‘Open Hostility’ Toward Black People

The NAACP, the black advocacy group founded as the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, issued a travel advisory for the state of Florida on Saturday, citing what it described as the Governor Ron DeSantis. “Aggressive Attempts to Erase Black History and Restrict Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Programs in Florida Schools.”

“Florida is openly hostile to African Americans, people of color, and LGBTQ+ people,” read the review. “Before you travel to Florida, please understand that the State of Florida devalues ​​and marginalizes the contributions and challenges faced by African Americans and other communities of color.”

accusing the state of having “criminalized protests, restricted the ability of educators to teach African-American history, and engaged in a blatant war on diversity and inclusion,” the NAACP denounced what it called “an apparent quest to silence African-American voices”, claiming that DeSantis made it clear that “African Americans are not welcome in the State of Florida.”

In addition to facing the “open hostility” mentioned earlier, the travel advisory warns those venturing to Florida that their children will be deprived of “An accurate African-American story, which includes a history of slavery, segregation, racial injustice and systemic racism.”

NAACP President and CEO Derrick Johnson accused DeSantis of turning against America’s democratic ideals by removing an advanced African American studies course from the public school curriculum and urged black Americans and their “allies” For “Rise and Fight” against the governor’s policies in a press release accompanying the advisory.

DeSantis argued that the AP class in question was full of factual inaccuracies, amounting to “indoctrination” rather than education. He encouraged the College Board, the company behind the AP system, to submit a revised curriculum with “lawful and historically accurate content.”

Florida’s Stop WOKE law, passed last year, prohibits schools from teaching that anyone is inherently racist or responsible for historic atrocities because of their skin color, and DeSantis has urged the State Board of Education to ban the teaching critical race theory. The governor responded to accusations of racism by pointing out that Florida law already requires the teaching of “all of American history, including slavery, civil rights, [and] segregation.”

The NAACP listed the Stop WOKE Act alongside the Anti Violence, Disorder, and Looting and Law Enforcement Protection Act and the Constitutional Transportation Act as “controversial anti-civil rights measures” inflicted on the black community by the DeSantis government.

As of the 2020 census, Florida was 12.4% black, 18.7% Hispanic, and 61.6% white.
