What Are Our Kids Are Being Taught?

It is often said if you do not know your history you are doomed to repeat it. In the Rialto Unified School District, students were assigned an essay to promote critical thinking asking them if, based on the evidence, the Holocaust actually happened. I asked myself what are they teaching the students and what curricula are the teachers using? Are they using the Internet as their source or just allowing students to express themselves without any credible sources.

Whatever is going on, the Board of Education must get to the bottom of this embarrassing situation.

Next they will be saying that Blacks were not an enslaved people in America or those who were enslaved were happy. Many of our young people do not remember that after slavery we had over one hundred years of Jim Crow Laws in America of which I lived under in North Carolina. Currently we have the Tea Party of the National Republican Party and the United States Supreme Court doing everything in their power to return us to that time in US History.

We have some historians rewriting our history books to soften the impact slavery had on us. We were stripped of language, food, name, culture everything we knew and now they want to alter that which we know to be true. Like I said if we do not know our history we are doomed to repeat it. We cannot allow that to happen.
