AUSTIN, Texas – The Texas State Board of Education adopted a social studies and history curriculum Friday that amends or waters down the teaching of the civil rights movement, slavery,............
Why would anyone, that isn't a racist............... think that this is a good thing?

I suppose next, they will start teaching how blacks were better off being the property of other human beings?

Never have so many politicians, screwed so many Americans...just to make one black person lose his job.

Re: i just may have to move to texas

TX has a history of rewriting history to suite their agenda.

The TX History that every student is required to be taught in the 7th grade has large parts that are just factually incorrect. It completely ignores the fact that the Americans were actually illegal immigrants that took over a foreign country and lied, cheated, and stole to do it. They also dramatically lied about the battle successes grossly exagerating the numbers and timelines.

A very small group of men were elected by a very few number of voters to school boards w/ the intention of permanently altering the facts in TX textbooks. Many other states buy off of the standard TX textbooks so this doesn't just make Texans more ignorant, but up to 75% of American school children more ignorant as well.

TX will now teach Creationism as a viable alternative to you know, science. A clear violation of seperation of church and state.

TX will now change the facts of the civil war and barely mention slavery at all and avoid the topic altogether as the factor that led to the war. It references trade differences as the cause instead. It was suggested to rename the Civil war "The War of Northern Aggression".

The Civil Rights movement is no longer considered relevent so moving forward TX students will think that TX was attacked first by Mexicans, then by Yankees, and blacks have had it just dandy here the entire time.

They want to rewrite the McCarthy era primarily by saying that he was correct and their WERE indeed Communists in the government (there wasn't) and the fact that he ruined lives and really altered things (such as adding 'in God we Trust") was completely justified.

Conservatives have decided that some facts are more like opinions. That their is an opinion, and so therefore there must be a counter opinion. But facts are facts. They want to lie to our children for personl gain and it really shoes how broken our system of government is.

I'm officially...Stroke-less.

Seriously, do you really think that expressing a different opinion (and the mental pause/thinking/reflection that may take place as a result)...........is a bad thing?

And do you think I really enjoy being called names, threatened and talked smack to................even if I do see injustices I think need corrected?

Let me tell you, it's no easy task to constantly take abuse for speaking out against the inequities (as I see them) in life but, what would feel worse (to me)....................... is letting them slide.

Edmund Burke once said, “All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.”

And racism, discrimination, fairness and not looking after those who can't look after themselves................are all things in my book that we can/should do something about.

Obviously....................... not everyone agrees.

Never have so many politicians, screwed so many Americans...just to make one black person lose his job.
