Power is access to money, information, decision making rights, and a reach of ideas - this is a really good example of that. It used to be that this kind of pushback would have stifled what @nhannahjones put together. This is an example of power traveling differently.
What she did is hugely important and these people are used to their narratives being the only narratives. Even with all the scholarship behind #1619Project the desire is to squash any narrative that differs from their own is the goal. They are used to having all the power.
You see in the comments someone claiming that more people would pushback if it weren’t for the “woke police” and one - what kinda proof do you have. And two, you cowards, how long do you think she and other Black scholars had to get pushed back on to get this work published.
Folks really lose their minds at changes in power. It is really wild.
