Has the history of the last 500 years been a record of who had technology and who didn't? If native Americans had had machine guns 500 years ago then what would have been the history of slavery in the South? So do we continue into the future letting palefaces know more and controlling education or do we continue this fixation on slavery that was just a symptom of less technological power.

Hey nat55. I think we also need to understand the nature of white supremacy as well. Which is the most important when we live and operate under that system today. White people are willing to do anything to maintain the perceived power. So nothing they do should surprise any of us.

As ER said, it is not only elementary school where this information is omitted. It is omitted in middle school, high school, and of course in college, unless you take it upon yourself to take an African American/African studies course. Though I’ve never taken an African/African American studies course in college, I would wager that 90% of the most pertinent information is still omitted. What our children wind up learning is the same MLK, Civil Rights Movement, Brown vs. Board of Education,...

Hi sunnubian , I a gree with all you say here. I chose the g rade school because in it there's already a captive audience so to speak. In other words, by law, every AA child must attend the classes set up for him or her there. One advantage is that it would eliminate the need for any of them to seek out such knowledge (libraries, book stores, etc.). Therefore, although it would be difficult, and perhaps impossible, to overcome the opposition to get such a plan implemented, I believe that It...

It all boils down to very simple psychology; First you brain wash the people [wash their brain clean] then you have a "Blank Slate" to indocrinate their brain with whatever it is that you want them to believe, think, fear, love, hate, desire, or be indifferent to, creating a "Self-Fulfilling Prophecy" effect that insures the indoctrination(s) will be carried out by those people.

You will not escape the internal logic of Capitalism unless you directly challenge it as a system. Notice that while the title of the article suggest corruption while the article itself walks through the logical outcomes when "the concept of treating inmates as commodities that must be grown for profit." Whenever you read words like "marketplace" and "incentives" dealing with any aspect of a social service.....people would be wise to through up a red flag.
