National Archives Website Places “Harmful Language” Trigger Warning On US Constitution

They have to trash all of our Past perceptions of rights to instill a new awareness of change that must come?


As part of the National Archives’ “institutional commitment to diversity, equity, inclusion, and accessibility,” it is now flagging “potentially harmful content,” which is defined as reflecting “racist, sexist, ableist, misogynistic/misogynoir, and xenophobic opinions and attitudes” or being “discriminatory towards or exclude diverse views on sexuality, gender, religion, and more.”

A National Archives ‘task force’ on racism has suggested placing trigger warnings around the building housing founding documents including the U.S. constitution, as well as declaring that the historical portrayal of the founding fathers has previously been “too positive”.

Fox News reports that the group has proclaimed the National Archives’ Rotunda building, which houses the Declaration of Independence, the U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights, as an example of “structural racism”.

The task force has decreed that the building lauds “wealthy White men in the nation’s founding” and that documents on display contain “legacy descriptions that use racial slurs and harmful language to describe BIPOC [Black, Indigenous and other People of Color] communities,” as well as other offensive terms including “elderly,” “handicapped” and “illegal alien.”

    the left hate the constitution how may times have we heard its just a bunch of out dated BS that needs to be retired and new rules put in place . the founding fathers were raciest and nothing they said or wrote is note worthy

    JMHO the men who put pen to paper had a insight into what a government can and would do and did all they could to protect the people they had the foresight to cover about any thing that could happen in the future of the country

    and many of them gave up so much to get it including there lifes and riches we own it to them to honor and fight as they did to keep what little we have left
