Hey kids, it’s time for Rewriting History with Judge Andrew Napolitano.
No joke, in the Texas public school system elementary students are taught that tariffs were the reason for the civil war, not slavery. We had an entire curriculum built around it.
Don’t forget that as one of the largest textbook markets, many other states have to buy Texas-approved textbooks. Not only does Texas screw up their own children, but they screw up the kids of other states as well.
Seriously every person who went to public school in southern states that I know think that this is the god damn truth and it infuriates me.
history is all kinds of fucked up the way they teach it in schools. Here in nyc they teach you as if slavery was only in the south and the north was all ‘freedom! yea! no slaves!’ when it took me until college to learn that the streets I walk on were paved by slaves, that this city was on the south’s side during the war because of all the money it was making off the slave trade, that we almost tossed out the remains of the slaves buried under our feet (nyers, check out the african burial ground in lower manhattan and have your lives changed)
fuck this whitewashed pansyass history
