Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News

The first complaint filed under Tennessee's new anti-critical race theory law specifically targeted a book about Martin Luther King Jr. and the civil rights movement, calling it "anti-American." The 11-page complaint " filed by the Williamson County branch of conservative parents group "Moms for Liberty" " alleged that the book "Martin Luther King Jr and the March on Washington" was among a set of lessons promoting "Anti-American, Anti-White, and Anti-Mexican" teaching at Williamson County Schools, a district south of Nashville. The conservative group specifically protested a photo of segregated water fountains and images showing Black children being blasted with water by firefighters. The group claimed that an accompanying lesson plan showed a "slanted obsession with historical mistakes" and argued it shouldn't be taught.

Clear into the 1980s there were still public parks in the south that black people were afraid to set foot in.

And yes they were afraid of being assaulted by white people.

These were clean wholesome well dressed hard-working law-abiding moral Americans who didn't feel safe due to their own skin color.

Dr. King in a moment of Bleak humor said that the Civil Rights Movement should thank bull Connors for doing in the daylight what had been done in darkness to black people for centuries.

Some of these 'Moms for Liberty' are probably in some of those photographs and don't want the world to see them.

It's a conspiracy to expose the Bigots. Ooh the Horror. The world will know. More importantly, the Children, will know. Got to burn those damn pictures. They're too real and irrefutable.

It wasn't like that at all. It was just normal living,back then....
