An early to work GOOD MORNING!!! to you all! Yup, no time for a Hershey walk this morning. Had to get out the house early to make it to the Stomping Grounds Coffee Shop.
Think About it Thursday Ed-vise today. Cause it’s time to put on our thinking caps!
Let’s think about the narrative that gets spun on things.
Recently, the Texas Senate (God bless Texas) passed a measure about limiting what teachers can teach. Of course, being Texas, it leans heavily on not teaching ANYTHING about slavery or racist. It’s TX SB3.
Now, the press is ALL over it. So is every liberal talking head. Which brings up the narrative topic.
Understand, I do NOT support this bill whatsoever. I find it an attempt to remove civil liberties and freedom of speech as well as an attempt to “Dumb Down” science and history.
The narrative being spun says starts with “Texas Senate passes measure.” Then it goes to “Texas passes measure.” See the difference?
Then, it goes from “Texas passes measure limiting teaching of slavery” to “Texas passes measure preventing discussion of KKK.”
See the difference? Add to that, can you see what headline will get clicks? Then, once you click on the headline, where do you think The Algorithm (no longer the web) will take you?
Yes, racism and slavery IS part of the ‘Merican Story. They ARE part of the narrative that brought us to this part in our timeline and dictated how we, as individuals, treat each other (Ooooh! That’s controversial). However, saying that a state passed something that prevents discussion about a specific topic (like KKK), that pushes the people of that state away from the table of conversation and into the privacy of a voting booth where they vote for a racist like Trump. Think About It.
Check the facts and get the narrative straight!
I’m just saying
That’s it for today. Take care of yourselves. Check in on each other and remember that War might be God’s way of teaching geography. Maybe!
