WEST VIRGINIA (WOAY) – The Anti-Racism Act, a response to the national conversation about race, sex and ethnicity has been advanced by the House Education Committee in a 17-7 vote.
The committee made some changes to the original bill. These changes would prohibit public schools from teaching some of the following:
-One race is morally or intellectually superior to another race
-A person by virtue of their race is inherently racist or oppressive
-A person should be discriminated against or receive adverse treatment because of their race
The House Judiciary will be reviewing the bill in the final week of West Virginia’s legislative session.
