Third Black GOP Congressman Calls Out DeSantis

If there's one Republican who didn't need anymore negative press lately, you can probably guess who it is:

Ron DeSantis.

Sure, Donald Trump gets his fair share of negative press, I know that.

But Trump is such an enigma that he's able to turn ANY attention into good attention.

Think about it. Even Republicans are admitting that it looks very possible that Trump committed some very serious crimes after reviewing the facts of the evidence against the former president.

Despite that, Trump is as popular as he's ever been.

He's been absolutely killing every other potential Republican in the field.

Including DeSantis.

Now, DeSantis is facing a public relations nightmare after a third black GOP Congressman has called out Florida's new educational curriculum for the way it handles slavery.

Despite one of the scholars who wrote the curriculum stating that Kamala Harris' assertion that it promotes the benefits of slavery in America and suggesting that the vice president was simply speaking nonsense, a number of people have jumped all over Florida lawmakers.

Representative John James, a Republican from Michigan, just became the latest one.

He said that DeSantis had "gone too far" when he defended "a recently approved K-12 curriculum in Florida that has drawn ire from other Black Republicans for its questionable framing of slavery."

"Slavery was not CTE! Nothing about that 400 years of evil was a ‘net benefit’ to my ancestors," James said on Twitter.

James said that he agrees with Representative Byron Donalds of Florida and Senator Tim Scott of South Carolina, two other Black Republicans who have said there should be some changes to what Florida plans to teach.
