Gianno Caldwell: The AP African American Studies Course Florida Banned Had Little To Do With Black History

Fox News Political Analyst Gianno Caldwell joins Fox Across America With Jimmy Failla to share his thoughts on the backlash Governor Ron DeSantis has been getting after Florida’s Department of Education decided to reject an AP African American Studies course.

“When I saw that, I did go on Twitter because I saw the letter that the Department of Education put out, which I thought was a poorly written letter, because it was too open to interpretation. And I said in my tweet, I need to know why this AP class does not reflect Florida’s values. And then I began to research, and I see the the queer studies and all this other stuff. It’s nothing that has anything to do with African American history. And then I’m like, okay, well I understand now, but they could have done a better job. They should have done a better job explaining it to people so people don’t get confused because no matter what you do, if you say as a Republican about any issue that has to do with Black Americans, there’s going to be scrutiny there. But you need to make sure it’s very clear and not ambiguous as to what you mean when you say something. But thankfully, I agree with his decision to ban that course. And they even said it in a letter. They said, once you create actual African-American AP studies based on the history of our country, then we’re open to dialog and conversation on it. And I absolutely agree.”

Gianno also tells Jimmy about being kicked out of Paradis Books and Bread in North Miami over the weekend because of his political views. Listen to the podcast to hear what else he had to say!
