Nikole Hannah Jones and Megyn Kelly had a heated exchange on Twitter after a decision was made about teaching racial curricula in US schools.
The U.S. Department of Education published its criteria for this year's American History and Civics scholarship competition, and it was through Secretary of Education Miguel Cardona that it was not a requirement for scholars to incorporate coursework based on or on Jones' 1619 project or the works similar are edited by writer, author and professor Ibram X. Kendi when grants are given. Those who can apply for the scholarships include "colleges or nonprofit educational organizations, museums, libraries, or research centers". Applicants will receive approximately $ 1.7 million.
Megyn Kelly agreed and cheered the decision not to include racism and slavery in the curriculum of American history and civics courses.
'That's great! People went up against the federal agencies that rewarded schools that teach Kendi and the 1619 project, and it worked! ”She tweeted. Remember, the loudest voices on Twitter (that's on the far left) / the news (that's 'woke up') don't represent the majority of Americans. Your voice is important. "
Jones snapped Kelly back for applauding the decision, pointing out that Kelly is no longer a political correspondent for Fox, which canceled their show in 2018, nor for NBC.
“I think it's good that you no longer pretend you're a journalist. Take care, ”she tweeted.
Kelly replied, “Says the woman who quietly tried to clean up her dishonest 'reporting' without even having the backbone to admit her shameful mistakes. Because of this, scholars from L and R have classified your work as anti-historical and dangerous. It is nowhere near the K-12 training. "
Jones then tried Kelly's journalistic skills or lack thereof.
"If only I had done some pervasive journalism like Special Report: Santa is White," she wrote.
While this is disappointing news, Jones continues to thrive. She recently accepted a permanent position at Howard University, where she will help build the Center for Journalism and Democracy.
