Censorship of differing viewpoints in education is as good as indoctrination.

Please continue to teach the facts about systemic racism. Be a model for the rest of the country. I hate that I went 38 years before I learned about it. I could have been a better friend for POC had I been aware. Let's not raise another generation in blind ignorance. Pave the way!

I believe that the curriculum our children are offered needs to include topics/discussions like what this video attempted to present.

The Henrico School Board should not apologize for the spotlighting of the truths that impact the African American population. The video is a highlight of the truth and not a condemnation of race relations.

Without teaching actual history, you are doing a disservice to the children of Henrico. We send our children to school to be educated not to be entertained.

To stop a conversation on racial inequality because some people felt uncomfortable is exactly why the video needs to be shown followed by an honest conversation.

I agree that we as whites do say too little about discrimination in US society, and the long and painful history back to the days of slavery. We also should apologize to our Native Americans whom, we shouldn't forget, we almost wiped off the face of the earth.

Thanks for adding your voice.

There is room for a honest discussion regarding structural inequality that persists.
