Accurate accounts of history can reveal fascinating 


nuggets of truth and moments in time that gives


 us deeper and more meaningful insights of our


 ancestral past and our true identity.


When students are miseducated and can 


only glean from  unfavorable stories and stereotypes 


reported on the news read in newspapers, heard on


 radio, seen in movies and on television... they 


end up having little to no respect or appreciation for 


African Americans because of negative slants, etc. 



In far too many cases, African Americans are grossly 


over-looked or hardly ever described in a positive light 


to any of us. The children and our world should be


righteously taught the truth about African Americans 


both historically and currently. 


History helps us to dig deeper to see the importance of 


slavery to the American narrative. It helps us better 


understand the cause and effects of slavery and see how


 and why people of color are still being racially


 marginalized.


How can one promote liberty, freedom and 


democracy, on one hand, and a system of


 subjugation and exploitation of people of 


different hue... on the other?


True history helps us to understand ourselves and the 


world around us. It gives us a clearer picture of how the 


various aspects of society works and how people have 


behaved, generation after generation, in an effort to impose


their delusional idea that a superior race exists. 


Many historians are credited as people who, without 


compromise, pursue truth, by way of fact. On the other 


hand, revisionist historians capitalize on the historian's 


professional credibility, and present their pseudo history 


as true scholarship. By adding a measure of credibility to 


the work of revised history, the ideas of the revisionist 


historians are more readily accepted in the public mind


 and tends to fit their political, social, and ideological 


contexts.



These devious lies have revealed an arrogance and 


entitlement which has affected every generation of 


humanity, and sadly, this disinformation is still being 


condoned, promoted and actively embraced by those who 


would rather live generational lies... than face the truth. 


Our collective past, from the first civilizations, the middle 


ages and into the modern era are overflowing with 


astounding discoveries of strong, faithful and fearless 


people who, may not be mentioned in our classroom


 books, but they have contributed greatly and provided 


strong and sound shoulders for us all to stand on.

Lies and distortions about our racist legacy have


 laid the deceptive groundwork for imminent 


catastrophes, i.e., racial indifferences, injustice,


 systemic oppression, redlining neighborhoods,


 inequalities, police profiling, police brutality, mass 


incarceration and many other expressions of 


hostility and/or discriminatory practices.



These historical distortions and/or ideologies 


were created by those who came before us and 


they passed these distortions and/or ideological


influences on to generations following them.
