Do you know how hard it is for “Prager U” to make news for its own ignorance? That’s like Jim Bakker making news for selling a sham product. It’s what they do.
And yet the right-wing propaganda outlet posted a truly epic self-own:
Young people are enamored with "anti-racist" rhetoric because they think they are fighting racist systems in America. The TRUTH is they are fighting America itself and the very values the country was founded on.

Young people are enamored with “anti-racist” rhetoric because they think they are fighting racist systems in America. The TRUTH is they are fighting America itself and the very values the country was founded on.
So people fighting racism are actually “fighting America itself and the very values the country was founded on.” Uh… yes? That’s exactly it. PragerU finally got something right.
And the entire Twitterverse let them know it.
So what you're saying is, America itself and the very values the country were founded on were in fact, racist.
Got it. And yes, America was founded on numerous racist values/beliefs. And ignoring those facts keeps America from being the best it can be.
Thanks for clarifying!

You know that famous painting of the signing of the Decleration of Independence? Somebody put a red dot over the face of every slaveholder. Behold, the values our country was founded on: pic.twitter.com/oYfq3DthR5

You seem really upset that you can't own people as slaves.

lol the first time prager "university" has actually taught anyone the truth and it was still an accident

The irony is that PragerU accidentally showed why the teaching of our nation’s racist past in public schools is so important; too many people are blissfully unaware of atrocities committed in our country’s name.
So… thank you?
