First, there was the 1619 Project. Now The New York Times has a limited series called “Nice White Parents” because they’re the people who get in the way of “building a better school system.”

The “1619 Project” from The New York Times received criticism due to inaccuracies. A fact-checker on the series even knocked on the paper after it ignored her expertise.
