I do not think there should be any limitations on what the student is taught in any subject. Expecially history and math.
The history of slavery should be taught for Black and white students to understand.
I read my grandsons social studies book and slaves were described as integrating to the US for jobs. Summed up slavery in 2 paragraphs.
The student that is not taught his history, at home or school, will be lost as he grows in this US. His history is a part of who he is.
This Black student, who does not know his history, may think white superiority is normal and acceptable. Will accept that his inferiority.
Many of our kids and young adults do not know their history and have no interest in learning.
Some don’t even know the history of the Civil Right Movement.
So these students, who don’t know their history, go on to college, and one day wants to write a paper on a topic related to Black History.
Since they were never taught Black History they drawing mental blanks.
Big props for passing along this very appreciated and quite welcomed overview of the evolution of American capitalism with all of us!!!!!Does anybody know The Whole Truth?
Black Americans just emphasize part of the truth. Analyzing the economics is a bigger deal than we have been told.
I wholeheartedly agree bientempo. Half of America's nose in the air Bougie Negros don't even know why they demand every statue, painting, sign or slogan ripped up, torn down or bulldozed immediately lest they petition the NAACP to take up their cause which the NAACP bootlicks only handle A-List Blacks or high dollar causes and only if their Democratic Party handlers approve it. Thanks to NAACP's fake rage "Amos and Andy" was removed from TV by CBS which in turn rendered Alvin Childress, Spencer Williams and Tim Moore unemployed. I like the money thing. It's true, like the slave museums if you're going, don't half step, go all the way or just do us a favor and just go away.On the other hand as someone who does not live in the USA I have a hard time understanding the problem people are having with your founding fathers an wanting to remove history. This would be like Dominicans wanting to tear down statues and painting of Duarte, Sanchez, and Mella
agreed yes they were for the most part slave owners. on the other hand without them you might still be a part of Britain or a piece of Canada. Their writing of your constitution was really unique to the world at that time, and still is.
I have trouble believing that the students are so traumatized by the statues and paintings.
I would guess that they don't have a problem using money which has pictures of your presidents.
THANKS TO DESTEE FOR RESTORING MY FLAG!!!
