U.S. History Text: White, Christian Americans Finding It ‘Difficult to Adjust’ to Becoming Minority. By Susan Berry.

A soon-to-be-released updated edition of an Advanced Placement (AP) U.S. History textbook teaches students that white Christian Americans are finding it “difficult to adjust” to becoming a minority and puts forward the perception that President Donald Trump’s election occurred because his apparent “racism connected with a significant number of primary voters.”

Unfortunately, the tilt of this text is entirely typical of the left-liberal bias that pervades just about every other AP U.S. History textbook.” …

“It’s just a particularly clear example of the left-liberal bias that pervades nearly all of the College Board’s AP U.S. History course material, from the Trump administration right back through the colonial period.”
