    who should teach history
    who should preach america's lies
    about our past struggles to survive
    with out infulltrating our minds wit pioson
    wanting me to kill my aggression for
    your people
    due to the oppression
    that mine faced
    when you push this nationalism ish on my plate
    who should preach history
    to the young that barely kno
    wrong from right
    kickin them wit info on various battles
    struggles
    and fights
    this symbolizes nothing
    but ignorance
    who should write history
    cuz the champs always seem to
    twist
    and turn
    hisory around
    in their favor
    so wat should we do
    who should we listen to
    i cant just sit back
    and continue to be lied to
    about all the things america
    didnt do for me and my people
    i just want to spread the word
    to all
    that reading
    self knowledge
    experiences
    rmemories
    wisdom
    is all we need to move on
    but the question remains
    who should teach history
    who should preach these white lies?
    cuz i cant wait to hear some real ish..........

    Hmmmmm,
    this is one of those question where
    you kinda take it as being rhetorical
    because i mean who should teach it?
    I really enjoyed your work, it has such a great vibe as well as flow...

    On point poet, the only ones who should teach history are those who will tell the complete story, but alas, that isn't the case. Thanks for this.
