    Well they were Democrats, sometimes FDR Democrats. And one is indoctrinated into politics maybe at a superficial level. But one isn't indoctrinated into politics at a deep level. One is indoctrinated into values and worldview at a deep level, what a person should be, how life is etc.. That's the actual deep stuff parents and other significant adults indoctrinate. Plus that any political indoctrination gets heavily influenced by their surroundings.
    If you want something to get done, ask a busy person. If you want them to have a nervous breakdown that is.

    My immediate family has voted all over the ballot from Republican to Independent to Wild-Assed Maverick. From Eisenhower to Shirley Chisholm and Ross Perot. I don't know where the indoctrination was, but similarly to ApatheticNoMore, I suspect it's more about values than doctrine.

    What specific things from the "1619 Project" are being taught in schools? Which books, articles, sources, lesson plans?

    Mostly, when I hear "1619 Project", it is from people using it as a scary-monster-under-the-bed sorta thing to rally the base, much like mention of "Critical Race Theory". So when I hear the phrase, my natural inclination is to dismiss the speaker.

    Wouldn't mind some details.

    The sense I'm getting is that the (particularly) Southern legislators trying to cancel the teaching of factual history are protecting white folks from getting their feelings hurt or taking any ownership of the sins of our forefathers. Or something.

    Tybee, this is eye opening for me. I could spend months on this site learning history from a new perspective while contrasting it with what I was taught - undoing what someone here rightly call my "indoctrination," hoping to have the wisdom to end up better educated and not under yet another spell.

    Thanks.
