Alabama Bans Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion programs

Watch Roland S. Martin discuss how Alabama lawmakers passed SB-129, which prohibits public entities like schools and universities from promoting diversity, equity, and inclusion programs. Alabama Governor, Kay Ivey has signed the bill into law

The law says schools cannot fund initiatives that teach concepts that "any individual should accept, acknowledge, affirm, or assent to a sense of guilt, complicity, or a need to apologize on the basis of his or her race, color, religion, sex, ethnicity, or national origin."

The law will take effect on Oct. 1.
