Committee Advances “Divisive Concepts” Bill to Alabama House without Debate


An Alabama legislative committee has advanced a bill that would ban “divisive concepts” in classroom lessons and state diversity training, including that white people should feel guilt over the actions of their ancestors.

The House State Government Committee advanced the bill with no discussion Tuesday.

Black members of the committee objected to the quick voice vote.

The bill now moves to the full House of Representatives.
