There were six Republicans and three Democrats who voted in favor of the bill in the Florida Senate committee that was run by Republicans, which meant that the bill passed.
During a media event in December, DeSantis also talked about CRT. He said that the proposed law would help keep CRT out of schools and the workplace, calling it “state-sanctioned racism” that creates a “hostile work environment.”
Critical Race Theory is a way to think about and deal with inequality and racism in the United States. A lot of people have also made the term political and said that Marxism is bad for the American way of life.
Under the new law, people would not be able to make people “feel uncomfortable, guilty, anguished, or any other form of psychological distress because of their race, color, sex, or national origin” under the new law.
Beside that, it would also say that employers can’t train their employees in ways to make people think that they should be discriminated against because of past actions by other people of the same race, color, sex, or national origin. This means that they can’t make people think that they should be discriminated against or get bad treatment because of what happened in the past.

A man said, “This isn’t even a ban on Critical Race Theory, this is a ban on Black History.” They don’t want white people to feel uncomfortable. Let’s talk about how uncomfortable it can be to be different from the norm. I know that my ancestors felt bad when they were taken away from their children. ”
In a statement that was emailed to CNN, it was DeSantis press secretary Christina Pushaw’s job to say what the governor thought about “discrimination based on race, color, sex, and national origin.”
In her letter, she said the bill “makes it clear that no Floridian should be subjected to discriminatory content and rhetoric.”
Every Floridian should have the same chance at success, no matter what their skin color is. In other words, this means treating everyone as an individual with his or her own set of traits, experiences, and goals, not as a member of this or that group of people. “She said,”
Then, Pushaw said, “It is frankly disturbing that anyone would be upset about these ideas in 2022.”
