“American Priority is proud to invite you and your family to celebrate America’s independence with us in South Dakota in partnership with Black Hills Speedway,” they announced on their website. “We have a full day of fun planned for you at the American Priority family 4th of July celebration taking place at the Black Hills Speedway in Rapid City.”

“The event begins at 3pm on July 4th and will kick off with live music, fun activities for the children, food and beverages for ticket holders, and appearances from a few very special guests. As the festivities continue into the evening, we will have races taking place on the track and will end the night with a spectacular 4th of July fireworks display,” they continued.

American Priority describes their organization on their official website as follows:

American Priority was founded in 2018 on three main principles: Liberty, Integrity and Equality. After the 2016 election, our country got a fresh chance at reimagining the American Dream that seemed to be fading from view. With President Trump’s win the status quo was wholly upended and a new breath of air was given to America. It gave us a chance to redefine our priorities as a collective people. Liberty has been at the heart of our country since it’s founding. With the advent of technology and the digital age, this profound concept has begun to fade. Integrity is so critical to a functioning society – be it personal integrity, institutional integrity or journalistic integrity.

At such a critical juncture in our country’s history, we are learning things about our institutions that have confirmed our worst instincts. Equality is also a bedrock of America’s promise. Throughout the history of this nation, we have fought to secure equality of opportunity for all. It quite literally was the basis of our Civil War. With these three principles in mind, our founder Alex Phillips put together American Priority – to refocus and retool our collective energy into promoting the ideals that have made America what it is, and what will continue to define it in the future. Though we sometimes see a shift away from these great ideals, American Priority strives to serve as a company that can bring them to the forefront through a variety of events, lectures and other means. It is with these three guiding principles that we do everything we do.

Virginia School District Stops Celebrating Dr. Seuss on Read Across America Day Because of the “Racial Undertones” in His Books

It’s all so tiresome.

Published

on

The Loudoun County School District in northern Virginia has stopped celebrating Dr. Seuss during Read Across America Day because of the “strong racial undertones” in some of his books.

Research in recent years has revealed strong racial undertones in many books written/illustrated by Dr. Seuss. Examples include anti-Japanese American political cartoons and cartoons depicting African Americans for sale captioned with offensive language,” the district wrote in a statement.

Given this research, and LCPS’ focus on equity and culturally responsive instruction, LCPS provided this guidance to schools during the past couple of years to not connect Read Across America Day exclusively with Dr. Seuss’ birthday. Dr. Seuss and his books are no longer the emphasis of ‘Read Across America Day’ in Loudoun County Public Schools,” the statement added.

To be clear, this does not mean that Loudoun County School District is outright banning Dr. Seuss’ books. They are still available for children to read in their libraries and classrooms.

Read Across America Day is celebrated every year on March 2, the day of Dr. Seuss’ birthday, and many schools across the country celebrate National Reading Month every March.

The National Education Association, which created National Reading Month and Read Across America Day, started to distance themselves from explicit promotion of Dr. Seuss in 2017 and now promotes non-white authors who write books about “racial justice,” “inclusivity,” and so on.

Dr. Seuss, whose real name was Theodor Seuss Geisel, worked as a political cartoonist in addition to illustrating and writing children’s books. Interestingly enough, Geisel was a passionate supporter of FDR and a lifelong liberal Democrat.
