Senate Bill 411 was introduced on July 10 by, among others, Senator Darling who represents Whitefish Bay in the Wisconsin Senate. Although phrased as race-neutral and never referring to critical race theory, it is designed to prevent schools from teaching about the realities of racial oppression over the last 400 years and to absolve whites of any responsibility for acknowledging or addressing continuing discrimination of minorities in our society. It also prevents anti-racism and anti-sexism training for employees of public school districts.
