Apple recently announced its next iPhone update will include a feature that warns U.S. users under the age of 18 before they send or open text messages with nude photos.
That’s all well and good but why is Apple allowing users to send children under the age of 16 nude photos?
Doesn’t Apple know that sexting involving minors is strictly illegal in most states and under federal law.
Sexting is the taking, sending or receiving of nude or sexual photos or videos by electronic means, whether through a text message, social media or email.
Why doesn’t Apple understand that it may be a party to sexting to minors when it knowingly transmits nude photos to minors? Apple should block such material if it has notice, which it is admitting that it has when it warns a child who is about to open or send a nude photo.
Apple declined to respond to an email request for comment.
Memorial Day is intended to honor the sacrifices of soldiers who fought and died for American values like freedom and equality.
But the new race narrative being promulgated by the New York Times’ The 1619 Project effectively rejects this concept with respect to the Revolutionary War.
The Biden administration is promoting the teaching of The 1619 Project, which claims America’s real founding year was 1619, the year African slaves arrived in Virginia, instead of 1776, the year the Declaration of Independence was signed.
The central tenet of the project, which is being distributed in curriculum form by the Pulitzer Center at Columbia University to schools around the country, is that Americans fought the Revolutionary War to protect slavery and slavery has been at the heart of everything America has done since then.
It seems to matter not that Gordon Wood, the premier historian of the American Revolution; James McPherson, the dean of Civil War historians; and Sean Wilentz of Princeton University say there is absolutely no evidence that slavery was a factor in the Revolutionary War. “I don’t know of any colonist who said that they wanted independence in order to preserve their slaves,” said Wood.
