On Tuesday, "The View" co-host and activist, Whoopi Goldberg, launched into a rant after Florida's education department prevented a proposed African-American history course from incorporating various theories about race and sexuality.
During a panel discussion about the potential 2024 primary matchup between Florida Governor Ron DeSantis and Donald Trump, Goldberg made his comments.
During the discussion, Sara Haines noted that DeSantis' candidacy gave Trump supporters an opportunity to "off-load" from their former president.
As she discussed the topic, Goldberg noted that DeSantis' position as the governor of Florida allows him to decide what education can be taught in the state. She also said that there is a lot of racism in the state.
The Florida Department of Education rejected a high school's plan to offer an advanced placement course on African-American history, which would have featured units on feminism, queer studies, and intersectionality.
According to Griffin, Trump cannot beat DeSantis in the upcoming primaries. Instead, he should be focused on defeating Virginia Governor Glenn Youngkin and New Hampshire Governor Chris Sununu.
During the discussion, Hostin noted that Glenn Youngkin had stated that people should refrain from talking about transgender people and African-American history.
Despite his statements, Griffin noted that Trump would not go as far as DeSantis when it comes to teaching African-American history.
During the discussion, Hostin noted that Glenn Youngkin had stated that people should refrain from talking about transgender people and African-American history. In response, Goldberg said that she would like to see a school book that's about teaching CRT. She also noted that the country is going to be facing more issues related to race and sexual orientation.
In the prohibited course, unit 4 features a section that talks about African-American methods and movements. It also includes a lesson about Black queer studies, which is a theory that focuses on the intersection of sexuality and race. According to the syllabus, this discipline aims to introduce students to a Black studies perspective on sexuality.
According to Bryan Griffin, the press secretary for DeSantis, the Florida Department of Education ruled that the course did not meet the requirements of the state's curriculum. He also noted that the course promotes a political agenda and violates the state's ban on CRT.
CRT teaches that America is racist, and encourages students to examine social interactions and institutions in terms of race.
Besides banning CRT, DeSantis also passed legislation that required students to learn about a massacre that occurred in Ocoee, which is said to have happened after a black man tried to vote.
Under Florida law, students are required to learn about the history of African-Americans, such as the slave trade and the abolitionist movement.
