Y'all, even Ruby Bridges is Critical Race Theory now
The little black girl who integrated schools is now a threat to white sensibilities. Or something.

Now a book about and by Ruby Bridges is considered too dangerous for young white minds to have to grapple with. Yes, that Ruby Bridges, the little black girl with the pigtails who became one of the brave faces of integration.
Why? Well, I’ll let the Tennessean tell you:
One of the books she specifically referred to was "Ruby Bridges Goes to School," written by Ruby Bridges herself. Bridges, when she was age 6, was one of the first African American students to integrate New Orleans' all-white public school system.
Steenman said that the mention of a "large crowd of angry white people who didn't want Black children in a white school" too harshly delineated between Black and white people, and that the book didn't offer "redemption" at its end.
