It’s a small thing, but a thing nonetheless:
Americans overwhelmingly reject the idea of banning books about history or race. One reason for that: a big majority also say teaching about the history of race in America makes students understand what others went through.
Large majorities — more than eight in 10 — don’t think books should be banned from schools for discussing race and criticizing U.S. history, for depicting slavery in the past or more broadly for political ideas they disagree with.
Eighty percent seems not just conclusive, but decisive. It’s an interesting article, but most of the facts are contained in infographics that would be unfair to share here. It gives me hope.
