In part – even a half century after the Jim Crow era came to a close – it’s because our schools do not do a good job teaching this history. To address this deficit, SPLC's Teaching Tolerance program last year released “Teaching Hard History: American Slavery.”
So it gon be interesting from what approach will they teach this history. American slavery history should discussed WHY Africans were chosen and WHY were Europeans so desperate to implement this savagery on unsuspecting human beings. European history [476BC to 1619 AD) should be included in the teaching of American history so that we all can understand the sick mindset of the European....especially the five European countries that enslaved Africa: Spain, Portugal, Britain, France and the Netherlands [including the Dutch]. So again it will be interesting how they are gonna released "Teaching Hard History: American Slavery to the educational system cuz not too many including some black scholars wanna talk about the "real" nasty dirty funky TRUTH of [African]slavery in [white] America. But!.
