Something I want to post from John Oliver’s show.
Why? We need to learn about our actual history, about the mistakes we’ve made and problems we’ve causes or allowed to happen at the expense of other people around the world or other americans. Like some of what happened to black people, native americans, asians and others. It’s not about saying “america is bad” no! it’s knowing what we’ve done wrong in our past so we can do better. We can still talk about the good we’ve done like fight off nazis (but also mention they’ve been here too) and sent people to the moon. As John mentioned in this segment, if you don’t teach our real history, you are teaching white supremacy, to something along those lines.
