Leaders in education, politics, and other areas gathered in suburban Evanston
Sunday to ask that the Illinois State Board of Education change the history
curriculum at schools statewide, and temporarily halt instruction until an
alternative is decided upon.
At a news conference, State Rep. LaShawn K. Ford said current history
teachings lead to a racist society and overlook the contributions of women
Before the event Sunday, Rep. Ford's office distributed a news release "Rep.
Ford Today in Evanston to Call for the Abolishment of History Classes in
Illinois Schools," in which Ford asked the ISBOE and school
immediately remove history curriculum and books that "unfairly communicate"
history "until a suitable alternative is developed."
Why do I have the feeling that Ford will only be satisfied if the
1619 narrative forms the core of the new history curriculum?
Probably because you're an idiot that constantly jumps to conclusions.
Just a guess.
The simple fact is that our schools teach a version of history that
leaves out the facts, and tends to glorify figures that don't deserve.
When the curriculum finally resembles what YOU believe, we're going to
hear a lot less (or at least a lot less GOOD) about George Washington
and Abe Lincoln and a lot more about how wonderful Karl Marx, Vlad
Lenin, Lev Trotsky, Chairman Mao, Fidel Castro and Pol Pot were....

God forbid we actually teach what happened.
You wouldn't know the truth if it hit you hard across the ass with a 2 x 4.
Nope, Rhino. I'm in favor of teaching facts, not fantasy. Your
continual bullshit about Communism and Marxism is nothing more than a
desperate clutching at straws.
Washington was absolutely shitty when it came to slave-holding. He just
WAS. They all were.
You won't read about that in most history books, but he was a really
shitty human being, in terms of owning slaves.
You want details? Sure... but be sure to cover your virgin ears, cuz
you aren't going to like it - but these are the FACTS.
"But there’s also a record of him ordering an enslaved man to be whipped
for walking on the lawn, Thompson said. Washington aggressively pursued
runaways, and took steps to prevent his enslaved people from being freed
accidentally while visiting free states. Plus, he was a workaholic, and
sometimes expressed an obtuse dismay that the people he enslaved didn’t,
by his estimation, work as hard as he did.
Washington left instructions to free the 123 people he owned when he
died, which was a rare move at the time, and one that he hoped would set
an example. But those instructions came with some big asterisks. First,
he stipulated that the enslaved people wouldn’t actually be freed until
after his wife’s death."
Washington was a product of his times... and should be taught that way.
History will show when Tyranny came to the streets of America, the 3%,
Militiamen and Gun Nuts, who like to dress up as GI Joe in tactical
gear, were nowhere to be seen.
