DFL Rep Says White Kids Should ‘Feel Bad’ About American History

Hayley Feland, Alpha News, April 18, 2023

Rep. Athena Hollins, DFL-St. Paul, who is “openly pansexual,” said in an interview that American history should make white kids “feel bad.”

“What I’ve been told when I talk to people is that white kids feel bad about what happened in the past,” Hollins said. “And I said they should. They should feel bad. It was terrible what happened.”


Hollins is an attorney and a diversity, equity, and inclusion professional. She tweeted a few days before the interview about the removal of Rosa Parks’ race from elementary school textbooks in Florida, saying, “This is erasure of our history. ALL of our history.”

Florida education officials said that the book publisher “overreached in its efforts to follow Florida law.” {snip}
