I Hate It Here and Tom Cotton is Why

This is the final episode of my first season. 30 and out. I was trying to figure out where to “end it,” and the number 30 just stood out to me.

This episode ties closely into last episode but points out why, even though classism is the truest war, we still must combat racism if we want to be free. Check out the following excerpt for some context before jumping into this, my final episode of the first season.

Republican Sen. Tom Cotton introduced a piece of legislation on Thursday that will prohibit the use of federal funds to teach the award-winning New York Times piece The 1619 Project in K-12 schools.

Under the proposed Saving American History Act of 2020, schools that teach the curriculum, which covers the early history of slavery in America, would be ineligible for federal professional development grants.

Cotton, a senator from Arkansas, defended the controversial bill in statement to the National Review on Thursday.
