Woke leftists will cancel anything, most recently they have put a target on the head of William Shakespeare. They claim that he is a racist, and a misogynist.
Left learners no longer want to teach history. They want to label it as bad, and erase it. From Lincoln to Churchill, and everyone in between. Nobody is safe, but everyone is racist and not worthy of being remembered.

“An increasing number of woke teachers are refusing to study the Bard — accusing his classic works of promoting “misogyny, racism, homophobia, classism, anti-Semitism, and misogynoir.”
A slew of English literature teachers told the school library journal (SLJ) how they were ditching the likes of “Hamlet,” “Macbeth” and “Romeo and Juliet” to instead “make room for modern, diverse, and inclusive voices.”
Some teachers have begun teaching Shakespeare through a “more modern lense” which is certainly better than pointlessly eliminating him all together.
These woke professors claim that his works like “hamlet” and “Romeo and Juliet” perpetuate “toxic masculinity” a stretch at best.
These works simply have characters with different personalities, some good, and some bad.
