“To teach children that the American Revolution was fought in part to secure slavery would be giving a fundamental misunderstanding not only of what the American Revolution was all about but what America stood for and has stood for since the Founding.”

Historian Sean Wilentz, quoted in the NY Post story

Good! Any “professor” who promulgates a “history” that is not only biased but also wholly false not only does not deserve tenure at any reputable institution of higher learning but should be summarily fired, repudiated, and held up to ridicule. Of course, that won’t happen because she (hope that’s the preferred pronoun–that’s really sarcasm because I totally don’t care) is a member of a protected class or actually several, including POC (and you can take that acronym either–or both–of two ways), Democrat/Socialist/Communist, and “journalist.” We know how much “journalists” dislike being criticised.

Yet, Hannah-Jones’ project has won a Pulitzer Prize and the author has received numerous awards.

Which only further demonstrates the total farce that Pulitzer Prizes have become. Lately, there seems to be a special category for the prize: fake news.
