Ron DeSantis invites Kamala Harris to Florida to ‘set the record straight’ on new Black history standards

Harris said during a trip to Florida this month that state officials wanted to “replace history with lies” by suggesting enslaved people benefited from skills used during forced labor.

Gov. Ron DeSantis on Monday invited Vice President Kamala Harris to Florida to discuss the state’s new Black history curriculum after Harris delivered remarks there blasting the new standards for suggesting enslaved people benefited from skills used in forced labor.

“In Florida we are unafraid to have an open and honest dialogue about the issues. And you clearly have no trouble ducking down to Florida on short notice,” DeSantis wrote, referencing Harris’ last-minute trip that was first reported by NBC News.

“So given your grave concern (which, I must assume, is sincere) about what you think our standards say, I am officially inviting you back down to Florida to discuss our African American History standards. We will be happy to host you in Tallahassee,” he added.

A Jefferson County woman was sentenced to nine years in prison at U.S. District Court in Louisville, followed by three years of supervised release, after being convicted of mailing communications to her neighbors in 2020 threatening to injure them because of their race.
