The Texas Senate voted earlier in July to pass legislation that would limit the teaching of critical race theory (CRT) in schools. In response, Democrats and media outlets are promoting a serious, and untrue, allegation about the bill’s intent and outcome.

Julián Castro, former Democratic mayor of San Antonio and later Housing and Urban Development Secretary under former President Barack Obama, called the legislation “an assault on history” in a July 19 tweet. He claimed the bill would erase historical figures like Martin Luther King Jr. from the Texas curriculum and frame the Ku Klux Klan “as the good guys.”
