A mother in Washington this week said she was outraged by an AP history lesson which extolled the virtues of slavery and accused Hillary Clinton of “setting back” the women’s rights movement.
Archaeologist and author Rachel Grant wrote on Twitter that she felt physically ill after her daughter brought home a 55-page packet titled “U.S. History Special Victims Unit,” which she described as a “non-white male hit list.”
“This is what her AP history teacher is including as part of the curriculum! Advanced US history with a sharp lesson in present day racism,” Grant explained.
According to the document, African-Americans “took full advantage” of welfare programs that were created by President Lyndon B. Johnson’s “Great Society.”
