Debate: The 1776 Report / Commission v. the 1619 Project.
A NY Times-sponsored initiative, the 1619 Project is set to be endorsed by Biden and his Secretary of Education.

Imagine a school wherein the the American Flag and Pledge of Allegiance are replaced by Pride and B.L.M. flags with the Black National Anthem played before sporting events. Entirely possible!
