    Looks like the whole revamping of textbooks to be more conservative has ruffled more than just a few feathers. :lol:

    The article is long on allegations but short on examples. Gee, what a surprise.

    And Liberals have been teaching or rather not teaching the whole truth since the 70's. I hope the State of Texas takes this to court and thrashes these lying sacks of shit.

    Fail.

    It's impossible to include EVERYTHING that has ever happened in a history curriculum. Therefore prioritization is necessary.

    Thess pussies disagree with the prioritization and surprise surprise, they're crying to big gubmint about it.

    I'd like to see a list of exactly what they object to...I found that they make the Black Panthers into evil villans while describing the KKK as something of a love group. :cuckoo:

    Provide evidence that supports your claim. Can't be to hard you CLAIM to have seen it. Provide us with evidence that Texas curriculum makes the KKK into a love group. As for the Black Panthers THEY WERE a terror group. Or rather became one. ANd looks like they still are.

    Isn't it funny how when Texas wants to teach the truth it really hurts the USA haters. I am tired of the true history of the USA rewritten and lied about.

    Do you have any idea how long it would take to tech the whole truth? Or how much it would upset your world view to hear it?
