Trump cracks down on anti-racist reading

He called anti-racism training and reading “Anti-American”. Yep. You read that. He just needs an oily mustache to twirl now to fully complete the cartoonishly evil caricature. My fantasy hope is now that he catches Covid, lingers in a bed for a painful month or two, then is saved by a trans Black/Mexican immigrant doctor who went to school on an affirmative action scholarship. Fuck you, you shitstain on the tightie-whities of society.

As a balm/chaser, read this article on how BLM has impacted the book media.

Donald Trump has directed the Office of Management and Budget to crack down on federal agencies’ antiracism training sessions, calling them “divisive, anti-American propaganda”.

The OMB director, Russell Vought, in a letter Friday to executive branch agencies, directed them to identify spending related to any training on “critical race theory”, “white privilege” or any other material that teaches or suggests that the United States or any race or ethnicity is “inherently racist or evil”.

The memo comes as the nation has faced a reckoning this summer over racial injustice in policing and other spheres of American life. Trump has spent much of the summer defending the display of the Confederate battle flag and monuments of civil war rebels from protesters seeking their removal, in what he has called a “culture war” ahead of the 3 November election.
