"The Book Version Of The New York Times’s 1619 Project Doubles Down On Junk History"

Five eminent historians — Sean Wilentz, Victoria Bynum, James McPherson, James Oakes, and Gordon Wood — wrote to the Times that December to express their “strong reservations” about the project, which they said contained “errors and distortions” about major events that “cannot be described as interpretation or ‘framing.’ They are matters of verifiable fact, which are the foundation of both honest scholarship and honest journalism.”

I'm so tired of people trying to indict the USA for having a history. Trying to divide us along racial lines and view everything through the lens of racism is not honest and does not help society. It is divisive and leads to more anger and divisiveness. Our leaders are playing identity politics with us and it is working.

We live in the time of victims, whoever can claim the most victim-hood seems to win. (Though I don't know what they win, victim points?)

Yep they sure like to ignore a country didn't even exist in 1619, or the colonial power struggle where ,England,France and Spain would finally throw their hands up in the air and say ''we give up our claims'.

And then there was the whole Russia and Alaska thing.

It's really amazing native Americans are sitting back and letting it all get stolen from them again by CRT charlatans.

In the course of his reply, however,Silverstein admitted that the primary purpose of the 1619 Project is not to illuminate the past or deepen the public’s understanding of American history, but to use history to advance an argument about the present: “The very premise of The 1619 Project, in fact, is that many of the inequalities that continue to afflict the nation are a direct result of the unhealed wound created by 250 years of slavery and an additional century of second-class citizenship and white-supremacist terrorism inflicted on black people.”


In other words PROPAGANDA.



He went on to cite a number of inequalities between white and black Americans, things like median family wealth and incarceration rates, which he says were “the starting point of our project.”


Guess there are no white people locked up, and there are no poor white people.

Jake Silverstein is a world class liar, and a bigot.

Speaking of that rag the NYT.

The NYT deserves to suffer the fate of The Mummy-Hom Dai.

I hope O'keefe sues the pants off them and takes them to the cleaners.

History is history, you cannot change it. These people that have cows over this stuff and act like you CAN change history (lol, fools) have nothing else to offer the planet other than stirring the #-pot for attention.

Another nail in CRT.




Forced labor in Sub-Saharan Africa[16] is estimated at 660,000.[17] This includes people involved in the illegal diamond mines of Sierra Leone and Liberia, which is also a direct result of the civil war in these regions.[18] In 2017, the International Labour Office estimated that 7∶1,000 people in Africa are victims of slavery.[19]

Many nations such as the Bono State, Ashanti of present-day Ghana and the Yoruba of present-day Nigeria were involved in slave-trading.[45] Groups such as the Imbangala of Angola and the Nyamwezi of Tanzania would serve as intermediaries or roving bands, waging war on African states to capture people for export as slaves.[46] Historians John Thornton and Linda Heywood of Boston University have estimated that of the Africans captured and then sold as slaves to the New World in the Atlantic slave trade,[47] around 90% were enslaved by fellow Africans who sold them to European traders.[48] Henry Louis Gates, the Harvard Chair of African and African American Studies, has stated that "without complex business partnerships between African elites and European traders and commercial agents,[49] the slave trade to the New World would have been impossible, at least on the scale it occurred."[48]


An inconvenient truth.

CRT pushers are the new Ashanti crew.
