Not What It Seems

A website with the deceptive name “AboutHollis”, currently touted on a huge sign at the intersection of Route 122 and Route 130, pretends to warn about “Critical Race Theory” in the Hollis/Brookline school district. It is, in fact, full of misinformation and boilerplate conspiracy theories, buttressed by unattributed hearsay, and clearly intended to generate misplaced outrage over a non-existent “problem.”

As a white parent of two of the small handful of Black children in the HB school system, I have over the past decade closely monitored how racial issues have been taught in this community. There has never been anything even vaguely resembling the crazy stuff on that site.
