Youngkin, Race baiter!

American Racism is in full effect in Virginia elections tomorrow.
The Republican party is swinging it like a bat, and their base is loving it.
Youngkin or Trumpkin as I like to call him, are playing the race card.
He is claiming he will stop, Critical Race Theory (CRT) from being taught in public schools.
Here’s the lie, CRT is not taught in public schools anywhere in America. It a post grad level class.
Republicans are saying, CRT, teaches white children to be ashamed because they are white.
They want certain books, like “Beloved”, written by a Nobel Prize winng author banned.
A woman claims her son, had nightmares after reading the book in school. (Hope he doesn’t play video games or watch movies, or read the bible).
Trumpkin is using the term “parents education rights” as his main reason for running.
It’s a racist dog whistle, because interview, after interview I’ve seen on TV of his supporters bring up Critical Race Theory, as their reason for supporting Youngkin.
Black Babyboomers know this playbook, very well. It’s anyone born after early 60’s, these racist tropes might seem new.
America is taking an ugly bend bsckwards.
