Map: See which states have introduced or passed anti-DEI bills

As most know by know on Friday the University of Florida fired all of their diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) staff to be in compliance with a new state law.

This is a move in the right direction and a good start.

While Florida is moving in the right direction it’s only one of a handful of states that have passed legislation to restore some semblance of sanity to state government and state funded education.

NBC News has created a map which shows which states have passed anti-DEI legislation, which states are considering such legislation and those who have done nothing.

Here’s more via The Blaze:

The University of Florida is the first college to fire all diversity, equity, and inclusion employees in accordance with a new law signed by Florida Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis.

The university had previously dedicated $5 million to support DEI implementation but announced Friday that it would reroute that money to a faculty recruitment fund.

DeSantis celebrated the announcement from his official social media account.

“DEI is toxic and has no place in our public universities. I’m glad that Florida was the first state to eliminate DEI and I hope more states follow suit,” he tweeted.

State Democrats, on the other hand, were outraged and furious.

“I am stunned but not surprised at the elimination of DEI staff at University of Florida, my Alma Matter,” said state Rep. Yvonne Hinson. “The culture wars engaged in the Republican dominated Florida House of Representatives will continue until Floridians have had enough and develop the will and determination to flip the majority in the Florida House.”

Let’s hope more states, especially red states, embrace common sense and make a move in this direction.

Ron DeSantis may not have been the best presidential candidate ever but he is certainly the very best governor in the United States of America.
