Unfortunately there is a purposeful agenda in the educational system which targets Black people with extreme left-wing material and revisionist
I spent over a year at an Urban community college to earn some of my core requisite credits "cheap" and in a misguided attempt to "broaden my
horizons" before I transferred to one of the top schools in the country to finish my degree. At the time, I was young, a lot more liberal than I am
now and because I had come from a sheltered community made up of 99.9% upper middle class Caucasians thought it would do me "good" to experience
A bit part of this was being the only white male in my English Lit, Creative Writing and American History classes. not surprisingly, these classes
were all taught by Black professors who converted the curriculum into "Black history month, 12 months per year". (Which was fine, that was one of my
goals in even attending the school, to get some of the "hidden history" and other perspectives).
What I wasn't prepared for was the extent to which it was taken. Where I had no issues with Martin Luther King being presented as a great man
spending months hearing how Malcom X was an elevated being second only to Jesus, more important than Gandhi, etc was hard to swallow. Worse, the
students were expected to completely agree with the classroom point of view. There was no debate, no discourse. You were expected to nod your head and
shout "yessir!" apparently.
History classes were the worst. All the founding fathers were evil slave holders, the Civil War had nothing to do with slavery (that it wasn't a war
goal at the start publicly doesn't change the fact that Lincoln and the entire Republican party were abolitionists and planned to end slavery the
minute they could do so, that drive almost derailing the effort due to the fact that Lincoln refused to compromise or wait further). They even taught
that the entire, real reason for the establishment of the American colonies was ONLY to continue the practice of slavery due to England banning it.
When things occurred, how, etc were not to be taken into consideration....
What's really scary about seeing crap like this in the media is the fact that so many people today have zero education in civics, US government,
history, etc. They can make most any claim and millions of people will believe it because it was on T.V.
