Kamala Harris recently gave an interview with ABC in which she made some truly absurd comments about how Florida's new school curriculum is supposedly promoting the great benefits of slavery from which Black people benefitted back in the day.
That's obviously false. Nobody in their right mind would ever think that a human being would be better off being a slave than making their own decisions.
ABC tried to get sneaky and leave that part of the interview on the cutting room floor in order to protect Harris.
It didn't work.
The footage got out.
Now, Dr. William Allen, a Black scholar who helped craft Florida's new curriculum, is speaking out to confirm to America that everything that Harris said about the curriculum was absolutely false.
"The only criticism I’ve encountered so far is a single one that was articulated by the vice president, and which was an error," Dr. Allen said. "As I stated in my response to the vice president, it was categorically false."
Yesterday, @abcnews aired a very small section of their interview with a member of Florida’s African American History Standards Workgroup, Dr. William B. Allen.

It's important to share the news to spread the truth. Most people won't.
