(THE POST MILLENNIAL) – On Sunday, CNN's Brian Stelter sat down with 1619 Project creator Nikole Hannah-Jones to talk about the widespread backlash the controversial project has received in the American public.
"I think we're gonna look back someday and say, 'Wait, they tried to ban the 1619 project?' Like, we're gonna look back, it's gonna make no sense in 30 or 40 years," said Stelter on Sunday's airing of Reliable Sources.
"But is this just the whitelash in another form Nicole, just, you know, some white Americans afraid to deal with the realities, so they don't want to hear it, they try to ban it, and then someday their kids are going to laugh it off," Stelter continued.
