New York City public schools have been slammed for introducing a children's book that highlights a "queer" main character that praises AOC and her Squad while teasing Mitch McConnell. A book called: What You Don't Know: A Story of Liberated Childhood has reportedly been distributed to NYC school libraries, according to the New York Post.

The book was authored and drawn by Brooklynite Anastasia Higginbotham and centers around a black "gay sixth-grader" named Demetrius, who isn't out yet but understands to love himself and navigate school, home, and church. Demetrius can be seen in the book feeling comfortable and "safe" around his mother swearing, while unsafe in church.

She and another mother said the principal of PS 3 in Pleasant Plains refused to spread it among students. The school was also reportedly going through other books to determine if they were appropriate for students. One of the crucial points in the book is when Demetrius and his mother attend church, and he has awoken conversation with Jesus.

As the boy's soul leaves his body, he is met with Jesus, where he asks the holy figure if he "knows what's happening down there?" and if it "hurts your feelings if I don't believe in you?" The understanding Jesus replies: ``It's my job to believe in you and I do." Demetrius then asked Jesus: "So we're cool?" The big man replied: "Always."

Jesus replies that he wouldn't, but that "everyone is invited to love and be loved." As they continue to fly down what seems to be a red carpet, a Billy Porter lookalike appears wearing a black dress, to which Demetrius asks if he should be loved. Jesus replies: "Especially him! Love the dress, Billy!" Next up is a Mitch McConnell look alike, where Demetrius asked: "Even...?" Jesus replies: "Yes."
