Again, the elitist prig is making "assumptions" he knows nothing about. MLK is a major item that is brought up in US history several times. This is what I was talking about earlier, which apparently he didn't care to read or he chose to forget. It's the idea that we have made many mistakes in our history. But we're not the POC curt wants us to be. We have attempted to learn from our many mistakes. You're correct though. THAT is the point of what DeSantis wants in the books. It's also what the GOP wants told. No woke crap, just what happened. Of course, it may be better than what curt understands. This area went through Sherman's march to the sea (which curt said wasn't all that bad after the history was changed and he fell for it hook line and sinker). Interestingly, I was taught about the march in CO and was told how horrible it was. Of course, we also learned about the Buffalo Soldiers, because one of their large forts was in CO. Sand Creek was part of a racist governor's plot that took the CO guard there and murdered mostly women and children.
A big thing here is the treatment of indigenous tribes here before the mid 1800's. And honestly, the federal government had little to do with that. That's on the state government.

You're going to be a valuable resource to the SS community as long as Florida and DeSantis are prominent in the news. You bring two things that will benefit us. One is the reality that you are a Floridian, an on the scene reporter. The other is that you consume fact and can, and want to, distinguish fact from propaganda.
Progressives are going to want to believe lies about DeSantis and, as they've demonstrated, they are happy to blast lies about DeSantis, as the Beatles sang, across the universe.
So, thanks. Just for being there.
