Legendary civil rights leader Robert Woodson was an American hero who championed excellence. Woodson has taken on the role of villain Nicole Hannah-Jones, who recently released an expanded version of her collection of anti-American essays, “Project 1619,” which emphasizes horror versus heroism. in the description of American history.
“Nikole Hannah-Jones’ latest iteration of the controversial ‘Project 1619’ has once again proven itself to be unreliable, and in some cases, as guilty of revisionism as the calendars. history of mistakes it seeks to correct,” Woodson wrote in a journal article Daily mail.
Woodson is a realist. He grew up fatherless in a low-income black neighborhood in Philadelphia. His experiences of discrimination and racism led to his involvement in the civil rights movement in the 1960s. Despite dropping out of high school, Woodson overcame the hardships of the times. childhood and earned an Ivy League master’s degree.
His story is heroic. Woodson was not a victim; He is the embodiment of excellence. He is a virtuous man.
NS ‘Project 1619‘ is quite easily dismissed. For example, the claim that the preservation of slavery was the real cause of the American Revolution, which was the focus of the original publication, is clearly false and ignores issues such as unrepresentative taxation, Stamp Act and the list goes on.
As a realist, Woodson is fully aware of the evil episodes in the film American history and past efforts to cover them up. The Commonwealth of Virginia, for example, “requires children studying in America to teach slavery as a benign institution, in which happy and disinterested wage earners are grateful recipients.” free food and housing,” Woodson noted. “This was not 150 years ago, but as recently as the 1970s.”
The real problem, according to Woodson, is that “the story of black people in America as told in American classrooms is often the story of what has been done to us, not what we have done in response. again.”
Having dedicated her career to helping low-income people of all races overcome poverty, Woodson has seen “countless Americans overcome homelessness, abuse, addiction, bereavement. body, and more to become successful, productive, and redeemed.”

Instead of focusing solely on the evil done by men – the oppressors will do anything to keep the oppressed under their control – Woodson championed everyday heroes who have Overcome incredible difficulties to succeed.
We need more heroes, not more victims.
Hannah-Jones not victimize, although she, and many like her, will teach students that all minorities are victims of white men who are stubborn for their domination.
“There is something particularly tiresome about middle- and upper-class educated blacks who have never picked cotton or sat in the back of a bus because it hurts so much,” Woodson writes. suffering about wrongs that they have never even experienced. These are the same people who sow discord by covering up the truth.
It’s not just bourgeois blacks who sell fake stories for profit and fame. Woodson CenterScholar Delano Squires notes, “We are currently besieged by white libertarians who are seeking remission of sins they did not commit, and by black libertarians who are want to be asserted about the injustices they do not suffer.”
There’s something surreal about it all. These people are either cynical or dangerously delusional. Either way, they’re off balance in their treatment of history.
To illustrate the nature of those who try to see America as irreparable for past sins, Hanna-Jones, in response to Kyle Rittenhouse’s verdict, tweeted: “In this country you even can even kill white people and walk away if those white people are fighting for black lives. This is the legacy of 1619”.
In this country you can even kill white people and run away if those whites fight for black lives. This is the legacy of 1619.

Rittenhouse Last week was cleared of all charges related to the shooting of three men in Kenosha, Wisconsin, during a riot.
This kind of rhetoric by an influential public figure is a poison to incite hatred, rather than find a cure.
The 1619 Project is a collection of essays that “sparked a storm of controversy not because most Americans wanted to deny that slavery was really terrible, but because the authors weaponized the system.” Slavery to try to manipulate the country into adopting a progressive policy agenda is just a fraction of what Woodson observes a fraction of Americans support.
“In contrast, the Woodson Center of 1776 units The curriculum tells the stories of ordinary black Americans who suffered from slavery and segregation but triumphed and achieved remarkable things. ”
The Unites 1776 curriculum is launched in 2020. The Woodson Center website says the curriculum “represents a nonpartisan and intellectually diverse coalition of writers and investors. thinkers and activists focused on solutions to our nation’s greatest challenges in education, culture and upward mobility.
“1776 Unites maintains a particular focus on voices in the black community who celebrate black excellence, reject victim culture, and present millions of black Americans who have prospered by acceptance of America’s founding ideals.”
Important Race Theory, of which 1619 is just a repeat, seeks to create a world where sin can never be forgiven. This is hell. It is anti-American. It is a deviation from the Judeo-Christian values on which America was founded.
In fact, it is a major deviation from the Western tradition. From Leonidas at the Hot Gate to World War II, liberals stood up to tyrants. Critical racial theory promotes autocracy.
Divide and conquer is an age-old strategy of Marx. Karl Marx reduce the complexity of the human experience to brute-force economics, which pits workers against bosses. Critical race theory attempts to reduce the human experience of race. They are the same monsters in different clothes.
Throw Big Tech into the mix and you have a brewing nightmare. Today’s tyrants will envision a world where everyone is willing to be enslaved. For that to happen, everything needs to be in black and white: the oppressed and the oppressors. This is what they are teaching in our schools.
There is no place for heroes in this dark vision. Like all totalitarians, Hannah-Jones and her friends seek to be the oppressor, rather than the oppressed. There is no other option in their nightmare-filled world.
Thank God for people like Bob Woodson. He is a realist and a hero, not a thinker. He lives in reality, not a production version of it.
Heroes are, in essence, living examples of excellence. Students need role models they can look up to, not hate.
We need 1776 units our classroom curriculum. Students need to reveal their human potential instead of stifling it by dichotomizing mistakes and myths.
