  • Several of the founders were well aware and often said that the issue of slavery was going to be a major stumbling block into America's future. After the Civil War, oppression only got more imbedded in the society - and people tried to cloak bigotry in layered deniability and religious justification when obvious.

  • It could be instructive to use the teaching of history in the UK. They do quite a lot less whitewashing about their history than the US does, it seems to me.

  • I'm saying this as a Canadian. Americans should be demanding BETTER, FACTUAL education across the nation. It's rather insulting that we, up here in Canada, are better educated about the TRUE American history on average, than the average American is. And the reason for that is this, WE DON'T WHITEWASH OUR HISTORY. WE TEACH IT, WARTS AND ALL.

  • What could be more tone deaf than, on May 5, ignoring Cinco de Mayo and focusing on Juneteenth instead? Are Joe and MSNBC planning on ignoring Juneteenth on June 19? Somehow I doubt it. And Democrats wonder why they’re losing a Latino vote they should have a lock on. Their own actions show how they take Hispanics for granted even as they show constant, overweening fealty to black Americans.

  • "Which history should be taught"? How about the history that actually happened, which there seems to be widespread resistance to among whites. The non-"white"washed history of slavery, the non-"white"washed history of the attempted genocide of Indigenous people and subsequent national theft, the non-"white"washed history of how the southern border came into existence. The widespread ignorance of these related issues among whites continues to do tremendous damage every day.

  • but the whole focus on the dialect is the problem because the opposition isn't between dates. the opposition is between the idea of america doing at once something exceptional. then promoting that it's the definition of exceptionalism. actually too when it comes to what's exceptional there's a context that has to be referred to. it can obviously only be bloody as part and parcel of the achievement. but that's the history. so that from there the perspective can then accept america's shortcomings, and see it's history as a continuum that includes successes as well as failures without concluding one or the other is definitive. again it's american exceptionalism that's the problem when it comes to the proper way of handling american history. drop it and see difficulties within a context that allows mitigation however and the story can actually pretty easily be told, thanks!!

  • Binary thinking occurs because, while we live in a complex world, some still seek simple easy answers - which are almost always the wrong answers. They haven't done the reading, thinking, questioning - they haven't done the work. They take the easy way out, looking for a politician/TV talking head/Elmer Gantry to tell them what to do, what to say and what to think.

  • A really good book on the topic is _Lies My Teacher Told Me,_ by James W. Loewen, which discusses the failings of American high school History text books. Omissions, alterations, fabrications of this country's history do a huge disservice to students of color because they aren't shown to be integral to the growth and success of the US, and a disservice to white students because it gives them a false sense of self-importance. That's not to say that there weren't important white contributions, of course. It's just that they were not the _only_ contributors.

  • Well we learned about origin stories from Elizabeth Warren. Throughout her life she was able to profit from a false narrative about her American Indian heritage. He was able to obtain set-asides at college and she was able to advance because of affirmative action. Now we know that what she thought and what she told everybody was absolutely false. As a person with Scottish heritage which I can prove, my Scottish ancestors were imprisoned and enslaved by the Romans and then by the British. I think of the horror that my ancestors endured while in slavery. This history has had a profound impact on me and has driven me to succeed. As a lesbian female I worked hard to gain an education and then an advanced education, I grew my own business so that I would never be enslaved again. I am able to chart my own course. People with African heritage are being sold into slavery as we speak. A young Somali teenager can fetch as much as $150 to $200 on the African slave markets. The great thing about the professors book is that the United States government outlawed slavery as is the result of Juneteenth.

    • @Constituent A perhaps not an expert but as a political adviser to numerous Democrat office holders it is my job to know things. I might suggest that you do likewise. I know Liz. She is a friend of mine. She continues to contact me for political donations and I do from time to time offer her some free advice. All her life she thought she was an American Indian. She was not on the registry, she was not a tribal member and she was constantly urged to take a DNA test to prove her heritage. Finally, at long last she took a DNA test and she found that she has less American Indian DNA than most people. Liz really stepped in it. This was a huge political failure however, to her benefit she is recovering from it and is acting like nothing ever happened. She is also a millionaire, a ‘One Percenter’ but I’m sure you knew that. Get vaccinated, stay safe, stay healthy, be alert.

    • @RJCHOICE I am saying any slavery is a disgusting practice and abhorrent institution. I find it repulsive to view one set of peoples bound by slavery as less important than another peoples We recall the work of John Stuart Mill, the English philosopher and political economist who said, “almost every people now civilized have consisted in majority of slaves.” We also note a research at UK Berkeley who catalog the living conditions of slaves on plantations in the antebellum South. We know that the same conditions today exist in the minority enclaves of our most progressive cities. We also note that as previously stated, slavery is still alive and well in Africa today. Flea markets exist in Africa and the buyers of human suffering still exist in the Arabic world. I am glad that you are so obsessed with African slavery and I would suggest You go to Africa now, perhaps Somali would be a good starting point, and work to end the practice of slavery.

      T. R. CampbellT. R. Campbell12 dager siden
    • @RJCHOICE Your post is resplendent in racial bigotry and racial triggering. The revisionist history spewed referencing “favorite children,” and ‘privilege’ and the term ‘whiteness’ is shocking but not unexpected and Is intended to disparage an entire race of people. I mentioned that slavery is still alive and well today in Africa. Slavery was alive and well in Africa and the Middle East long before the Atlantic slave trade began. We have to remember the huge African trade empires that existed at that time and were involved in the Middle East and Arab slave trade, selling captives. We have to remember that the trade empires allowed Europeans to establish ports in West Africa. We have to remember that the Europeans could not enter the interior of the country and to do so was a death sentence. The African empires then found great profit in selling captives to the Europeans. When we look at the very complete records of the Atlantic African slave trade, we know that the vast majority of human suffering were shipped to South America and the Caribbean islands. Others were sent to the Americas under British control long before the Revolutionary war. Following the war between the states the United States ended this “peculiar institution”, however it is still alive today can you stay Africa. I am highly offended by your attempt to diminish one form of slavery over another form of slavery. It is all a diabolical institution and to say that one group of slaves were better off than another is absolutely disgusting and should be called out.

    • Yet and still if you choose to compare the Scottish immigrant experience to the imported and enslaved African in the North American British colonies for many Scotts it was a place of "free" land and an opportunity to become wealthy by participating in some way large or small in the slave economy once they were granted "whiteness" by the W.A.S.P society at large. Many who have benefited from that perspective, now behave like "favored children" when confronted with their privilege in contrast to the sibling that suffered the abuse of a parent that did not love their children equally. The "favored" child often gets defensive and is usually in denial of any "special treatment" being responsible for their relative success compared to the abused sibling. This answers Joe's question as to "why so many do not like to hear the true history of the United States when it reveals the origin of our society's inequities. Who wants to hear that the parent who showed them, love, was actually a cruel and abusive oppressor to the other children who were forced to labor and support the family.

Obviously, there is no comparing BLM to the KKK or any alleged jury nullification perpetrated by black jurors to actual nullification practiced by an all-white jury to this day.

    • “We must believe in a future where color of skin is no more significant than color of hair” - Sam Harris Nothing is sadder than a person that views others, and themselves, through the distorted lens of race. What is dividing us, is more of a class struggle, which has been with us since the dawn of human civilization. What poor people of all races want, is to blame other races for their poverty and hardship in life. And both parties pander to this horrible idea, for votes and support. Unfortunately, many Americans want to cling onto past grievances, and seem stuck, and unable to move on with their lives. Like this women, want to say, I’m a marginalized class of people. Why would she think of herself like that? Her entire core belief operates from marginalizing herself, and providing why others have done it to her ancestors in the past.
