Relatable with Allie Beth Stuckey: In perhaps its most controversial move yet, the Biden administration did not honor Dr. Seuss during National Read Across America Day. If we keep canceling authors for their perceived problems, will there be any books left to read? Maybe just the ones by Robin DiAngelo or Ibram X. Kendi. This kind of cultural revolt against anything “old” has been seen before in Mao’s China, to horrifying effect. The progressives of today have a similarly utopian dream, but the road to get to the equity they want so much is laden with suffering. Maybe we should stop burning books, literally or figuratively? They want math to be more equitable too: Some teachers are now being told that it’s white supremacy to look for a single correct answer to a problem.
