The Iowa House of Representatives on Tuesday passed a bill that would ban diversity training that includes the idea that Iowa and the United States "are fundamentally or systemically racist or sexist."

The bill, House File 802, provides requirements for any diversity training carried out at Iowa public schools, within the state government and at state universities.

It prohibits a total of 10 "divisive concepts" to be taught, including "that the United States of America and the state of Iowa are fundamentally or systemically racist or sexist, that an individual, by virtue of the individual’s race or sex, bears responsibility for actions committed in the past and that an individual, by virtue of the individual’s race or sex, is inherently racist, sexist, or oppressive, whether consciously or unconsciously."
