Florida Middle Schoolers Will Now Be Taught That Slavery Had ‘Personal Benefit’ for Enslaved People​



New academic standards slammed as "a big step backward" will require teachers to instruct that enslaved people "developed skills which, in some instances, could be applied for their personal benefit"

Newly approved academic standards from Florida’s Board of Education will require middle schools to teach that enslaved people "developed skills which, in some instances, could be applied for their personal benefit" — a line that has ignited significant controversy among teachers' groups.

The standards, which were approved Wednesday, come in response to the state's 2022 "Stop WOKE Act," which stated that race must be taught in "an objective manner" that does not "indoctrinate or persuade students to a particular point of view." The measure pushed far-right lawmakers' rhetoric that teaching Black history makes White people feel ashamed, instructing that no student should be made to feel "guilt" or "responsibility" for actions previously committed by members of the same race.

DeSantis says Black people benefited from slavery by learning skills like 'being a blacksmith'​

  • Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis said Black people learned beneficial skills as slaves.
  • "They're probably going to show that some of the folks that eventually parlayed, you know, being a blacksmith into doing things later in life," DeSantis said at a press conference.
  • Florida approved a new African-American studies curriculum that teaches about the "personal benefit" of slavery.
Gov. Ron DeSantis of Florida said Black people benefitted from some of the skills they learned in slavery — and students in the state will soon learn about that "personal benefit" in Florida's education curriculum.

Florida's Department of Education on Wednesday approved a new curriculum for the state's African-American Studies program in public schools which instructs students on the personal benefit of slavery to Black people.

"They're probably going to show that some of the folks that eventually parlayed, you know, being a blacksmith into doing things later in life," DeSantis said at a press conference on Friday.
 
How long will it take before he is labeled a RINO or something worse? I doubt if Tim Scott would ever take a stance like this. He is going to lose his ginny card.


The only Black Republican member of Florida’s congressional delegation is pushing back against a newly-adopted teaching standard that requires middle schoolers learn that some African Americans benefited from slavery.

“The attempt to feature the personal benefits of slavery is wrong & needs to be adjusted,” Rep. Byron Donalds (R-Fla.), a sophomore Republican and former state representative, wrote in a tweet on Wednesday.

Florida’s new teaching standards faced a huge backlash since approved last week, with Democrats and civil rights leaders condemning the state and the DeSantis administration. Vice President Kamala Harris last week visited Jacksonville to castigate Florida’s education officials while civil rights leaders hinted this week that they may sue the state.

The Florida Department of Education adopted new teaching standard for middle schoolers to learn that “slaves developed skills which, in some instances, could be applied for their personal benefit.” The standard will be in a new Black history curriculum for Florida students.
 

Florida loses another multi-million dollar event over 'racist' DeSantis policies​


Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis' "war on woke" has cost the state another event that would have generated millions of dollars for the local economy.

Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc., the oldest Black fraternity in the country, is moving its 2025 conference from Orlando due to the 2024 Republican presidential hopeful's "harmful, racist, and insensitive policies against the Black community," reported the Tallahassee Democrat.

"Although we are moving our convention from Florida, Alpha Phi Alpha will continue to support the strong advocacy of Alpha Brothers and other advocates fighting against the continued assault on our communities in Florida by Governor Ron DeSantis," said general president Dr. Willis L. Lonzer III in a press release.

The event was expected to generate $4.6 million, according to the intercollegiate fraternity whose membership historical figures such as Martin Luther King, Jr., Thurgood Marshall and Adam Clayton Powell.

This did not take long, he forgot his role, he is a field hand.


Knives are out for the congressman long held to be tapped as DeSantis's successor in Florida after he questioned state teaching standards about slaves learning skills they could 'benefit' from​

  • Florida middle schoolers will be taught that some Black "slaves developed skills" they could benefit from.
  • Rep. Byron Donalds, the sole Black member of the state's GOP congressional delegation, voiced his displeasure with that.
  • In response, DeSantis' campaign staffers compared Donalds to Vice President Kamala Harris.
After tweeting out condemnation of Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis' new educational standards requiring students to learn that some Black "slaves developed skills" they could benefit from, Rep. Byron Donalds has been inundated with attacks by DeSantis' gubernatorial and presidential campaign staffers.

"The new African-American standards in FL are good, robust, & accurate," Donalds tweeted Wednesday morning. "That being said, the attempt to feature the personal benefits of slavery is wrong & needs to be adjusted. That obviously wasn't the goal & I have faith that FLDOE will correct this."
 
Nothing will happen, but its a good story.

DeSantis Caught Using Taxpayer-Funded State Vehicles to Campaign​


A car crash in Tennessee earlier this week revealed that Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis has been using state government vehicles for his 2024 presidential campaign, the Sun Sentinel reported. If it hadn’t been for the crash, though, nobody would even know he was doing so. That’s thanks to DeSantis’ own state legislature, which passed a recent law that shields the governor’s travel records from the public. As a result, DeSantis is essentially free to use resources funded by Florida’s taxpayers to fuel his presidential aspirations. “It’s absurd that he’s using public resources and public infrastructure to campaign,” said state Rep. Anna Eskamani, (D-Orlando). “He’s using state resources to boost himself politically.” Eskamani acknowledged that, had it not been for the crash, no one would have known about DeSantis’ use of state vehicles. “It makes you wonder how often state vehicles and public employees are being used at out-of-state campaign events,” she said.

controversial Florida social studies curriculum that includes a lesson on how "slaves developed skills" that could be used for "their personal benefit" is over 200 pages long, with plans for multiple grade levels and topics included. The full document can be viewed online or you can read it at the bottom of this story.

The lesson in question can be found at the bottom of page 6 of the document, with the code "SS.68.AA.2.3." This means it is a lesson for students in sixth to eighth grade, taught as part of the curriculum's "African American History Strand," or category.

The lesson asks students to "Examine the various duties and trades performed by slaves," including agricultural work, painting, carpentry, tailoring, domestic service, blacksmithing, and transportation. That is followed by a "benchmark clarification" noting: "Instruction includes how slaves developed skills which, in some instances, could be applied for their personal benefit."

South Carolina Senator Tim Scott, another presidential candidate, saying in a recent town hall that slavery had "no silver lining."

"What slavery was really about [was] separating families, about mutilating humans and even raping their wives," said Scott, who is the Senate's only Black Republican. "It was just devastating. So, I would hope that every person in our country — and certainly running for president — would appreciate that."
 
Oh NOW they are black all the sudden.

Well, it’s a week with a Thursday in it, and Florida is, once again, revising its educational standards in alarming ways. Not content with removing books from shelves, or demanding that the College Board water down its AP African American studies curriculum, the state’s newest history standards include lessons suggesting that enslaved people “developed skills” for “personal benefit.” This trend appears likely to continue. What follows is a preview of the latest edition of the dictionary to be approved in Florida.

Aah: (exclamation) Normal thing to say when you enter the water at the beach, which is over 100 degrees.

Abolitionists: (noun) Some people in the 19th century who were inexplicably upset about a wonderful free surprise job training program. Today they want to end prisons for equally unclear reasons.

Abortion: (noun) Something that male state legislators (the foremost experts on this subject) believe no one ever wants under any circumstances, probably; decision that people beg the state to make for them and about which doctors beg for as little involvement as possible.

Isn't he EVERYTHING the GOP wants? The guy that was a thug and got his life right without yelling racism and begging for handouts?

Leprosy cases in central Florida account for nearly 20% of national cases. What to know​



Rising evidence is pointing to the possibility that leprosy has become endemic in the southeastern U.S. with Florida being named among the top reported states.

In a recently published research letter regarding emerging infectious diseases, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) said that Florida is witnessing an increase in leprosy cases lacking traditional risk factors and recommending that travel to Florida be considered when conducting leprosy contact tracing in any state.

Leprosy, which is scientifically known as Hansen's disease, is a chronic infectious disease that primarily affects the skin and peripheral nervous system.
 

AP Psychology effectively banned in Florida because of gender, sexuality chapter​



Florida superintendents were advised Thursday by the state to nix their Advanced Placement Psychology classes unless they exclude any topics related to gender or sexuality, according to The College Board, which oversees the AP program.

Such a shift would mean the courses couldn't be called Advanced Placement, however, or used by students to earn college credit, the College Board said. And the organization is advising Florida districts not to offer the class until the state reverses its decision, saying any AP Psychology course taught in Florida will violate either state law or college requirements.

"We are sad to have learned that today the Florida Department of Education has effectively banned AP Psychology in the state by instructing Florida superintendents that teaching foundational content on sexual orientation and gender identity is illegal under state law," the College Board said. "The state has said districts are free to teach AP Psychology only if it excludes any mention of these essential topics."

In June, the College Board said it would not alter the popular AP Psychology class after the state asked the organization to review all AP courses to see if they "need modification to ensure compliance" with a Florida law and state Board of Education rule targeting instruction on sexual orientation and gender identity.
