If you’re wondering why Cornel West would praise DeSantis’ “education” policy: he sits on the bird of a company - along with Christopher Rufo and the head of the Heritage Foundation - that directly benefits from DeSantis’ policies.

Replying to @nancygilesnyc and @brianpmangan
Yes. I found it hard to believe until I saw it myself. Here's a link to list of the board members of CLT Tests - Jeremy Tate's company. West is sitting there right alongside R*fo and the president of the Heritage Foundation, among others.. https://cltexam.com/about/leadership/

Dr. West is running for president on the People's Party line. Granted this party does not have automatic ballot access in any of the 50 states, or Washington DC, any state he does get on the ballot can only damage Biden by peeling votes away from Biden.
I am not sure what Dr. West is hoping to accomplish by running for president in 2024.

DeSantis’s Revolutionary Defense of the Classics

Promoting the Western canon shouldn’t only be a Republican talking point.

He defines nonsense like this as cultural racism, because it implies that the culture of black people (or women, LGBT+, or [fill in the blank] minority) isn't culture to be celebrated or taught, only the White European culture is worth any of that.

Mr Kendi has it right that such a view is utter rot. "Classics" are in no way limited to the traditional Euro white-male dominated Western canon. Other cultures have their own classics that also deserve representation in our education system.

So instead of teaching Don Quixote or Moby Dick, teach The Tale of Genji. What, it's not a classic because a Japanese woman wrote it 400 years before Cervantes was born, or 700 years before Melville?

Ramsay is a prick, but this meme sums up what I have to say about these prats who blather about the (white male) supremacy of the "Western canon" all the time:
