30. Which History do you teach, that written by Republicans or Liberals?
Or do you know? History is often written by the winning side of the argument and that means it might not be completely accurate. Math is accurate as is science. Do you teach how Native Americans did their farming or how they have been treated from day one after Spanish (Columbus) arrived upon our shores? Do you teach that virtually every single Treaty signed by the US Government with Native Americans has been broken? Do you teach how we stole California from Mexico by force of arms? History is just the winner's story.
