What more study of racial problems has taught me

Every Republican-dominated state has passed laws restricting how racial issues are discussed. Colleges in Florida are going further and barring classes that “compel” beliefs. Colleges are supposed to be places where ideas are allowed to be discussed, even if they’re controversial. This is a serious escalation. I am worried about the future of education in red states such as Florida and Kentucky. If GOP officials ban any teaching at public schools or universities on race that conservatives don’t agree with, they will prevent people like me from getting a complete education.
