4. yeah

 

are you really teaching the unknown histories? Yeah, I would have like to have known the real story of slavery and the reason(s) for the civil war. I would have liked to have known about the vulture capitalists of the time(carpetbaggers) who destroyed any chance at national reconciliation and instead accounted for many of the reasons for the ensuing racial segregation. I would have liked to have learned about how racist america really was, in my high school days and beyond. That last statement doesn't need expounding on does it. You want a link? I have a friend who is a middle school teacher. He says Vietnam is a footnote with no mention of the dictators we backed to keep that war going at the cost of 50-thousand + plus american lives and a uncounted number of Vietnamese lives. I wonder how history books will deal with Bushmonkey/darth lies and ensuing WARS? I don't even think bin the dead ladin was in Afghanistan when we went in. Please stay bored and I feel sorry for your uninformed students who like I was are in store for a rude awakening in the real world. No schools have never taught this "stuff" and I doubt your students had full disclosure. Because if they did you wouldn't have had your job long. Am I wrong?
