The media is still attacking Gov. DeSantis for rejecting an AP African-American class over BLM, queer theory, police defunding and general racism. The governor’s people have yet to note that it includes the writings of domestic terrorist Angela Davis or racist Ta-Nehisi Coates.

And the Biden administration decided to step in.
The White House on Friday called it “incomprehensible” for Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) to block a new Advanced Placement (AP) course for high school students on African American studies.
“It is incomprehensible to see … this ban or this block, to be more specific, that DeSantis has put forward,” press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre told reporters, noting the Biden administration does not play a role in dictating school curriculums.
“They have banned more books in schools and libraries than almost every other state in the country. And let’s not forget, they didn’t block AP European history, they didn’t block music history or art history, but the state chooses to block a course that is meant for high-achieving high school students to learn about their history of arts and culture,” she said.
Let’s discuss one of those arts in particular.
TOPIC 4.10 The Black Arts Movement This topic explores the influence of the Black Power Movement on the emergence of the Black Arts Movement’s artist-activists and intellectuals in the 1960s and 1970s. Students may examine various forms of visual art and an example of the writings of Amiri Baraka.
Shall we delve into some examples of the writings of Amiri Baraka?
“I got the extermination blues, jew-boys. I got the Hitler syndrome figured… So come for the rent, jewboys, or come ask me for a book, or sit in the courts handing down your judgements still I got something for you, gonna give it to my brothers, so they’ll know what your whole story is, then one day, jewboys, we all, even my wig wearing mother gonna put it on you all at once.”
“Atheist jews double crossers stole our secrets crossed the white desert to spill them,” Baraka ranted. “The fag’s death they gave us on a cross… they give us to worship a dead jew and not ourselves.” “The empty jew betrays us, as he does hanging stupidly from a cross, in an oven, the pantomime of our torture, so clearly, cinemascope the jews do it… the little arty bastards talking aritmetic they sucked from the arab’s head. Suck your pricks. The best is yet to come. On how we beat you and killed you.”
“We are all beautiful (except white people, they are full of, and made of shit),” Amiri Baraka wrote. “Come up, black dada / nihilismus. Rape the white girls. Rape / their fathers. Cut the mothers’ throats,” he wrote.
Karine Jean-Pierre finds it incomprehensible that Florida isn’t welcoming genocidal antisemitism and racism with open arms? She probably does. We know that the Biden administration certainly welcomes it.
Pierre and the media should be asked about Amiri Baraka and be made to defend this racist filth.
