Helping CRT laws backfire

CRT bans are vague for a reason. Specificity has an unwanted effect of publicizing exactly the topics the RWNJ's want to hide.

I think it's our job to flood social media with innocent sounding questions about banned topics.

"Is the 3/5 compromise in the original constitution an allowable topic?"

How about ?:

Jim Crow laws
Economics of cotton in early U.S. history
Asian exclusion laws
redlining
History of civil rights pioneers like MLK, Susan Anthony etc.
Books by non-white authors, gay authors

The list is endless.

But simply posing the questions will publicize the topics. Probably 75% of Americans never heard of the "3/5 compromise" but asking about it's educational allowability will promulgate the topic.
You can't hide truth.

1. The abbreviation CRT and its individual words are ripe for satire

in schools or online.

Repeated use of CRT with alternative words. Cathode Ray. Cardiac Recreational Therapy

Chattanooga Rumba Tournament
Chicago Railroad Terminal

2. Yes! The Streisand effect

Great idea, it sounds like a variant of the 'Streisand effect" ...

The Streisand effect is a phenomenon that occurs when an attempt to hide, remove, or censor information has the unintended consequence of increasing awareness of that information, often via the Internet. It is named after American singer Barbra Streisand, whose attempt to suppress the California Coastal Records Projectís photograph of her residence in Malibu, California, taken to document California coastal erosion, inadvertently drew greater attention to it in 2003.[1]

4. That's interesting. I'm sure that in the end Barbara enjoyed the increased focus on

herself. Not that she needed it. I'm among the many people who enjoy her music and
her movies and her desire for privacy.Thanks for being part of my daily DU education!

5. Why do they crow "cancel culture" when they are the very ones wanting to cancel things



they don't like, but screams and whines when politically correct topics can't even be discussed without triggering their sensibilities.

Ban books, Burn books

Poor poor babies can't handle the history of our nation building.

10. It will happen, and it will be quite entertaining

It will happen, and it will be quite entertaining when our 21st century "Nopes Trial" begins.

"My good sir, are you admitting, here in court, that you actually taught history?"

"Yes, Sir. I am. I teach that the Civil War did happen. I ask them to think about it"

"Boy, you test the patience of this court. Do you have any evidence that there ever was a Civil War?"

Adding: Crazy Republican Tall-tales

14. Because I saw a documentary on Sherman's March to Terminal B

You know, when he burned Hartsfield-Jackson airport to the ground. I mean, it's named after Stonewall. Duh.

It's was at the same time he banned Coke and Donald Glover albums.
