    Sooo, Native Americans and Blacks are supposed to be grateful for all the wonderful treatment they have received throughout American history? I'm confused...

    IF the Tea Party isn't racist, why do they want to "whitewash" history?

    So you prefer that our Children are Taught that Slave Owners were all evil scum? With no context of the times? How Slaves were Treated, How many Slave Owners Freed there own Slaves?

    Are you actually claiming there was nothing at all good to be said about anyone who ever owned a slave?

    lol

    Yeah, I had a right wing friend argue with me the other day that, "Slaves of those days were more parts of the family."

    Right, if you can sell members of your family...:eusa_eh:

    Nooo, I'm saying let's we "truthful" about it. Let's also be "truthful" about how Native Americans were treated. It's a simple concept...

    You are such a liar dude, They want the Full History taught and not just the Dumbed down Liberal Version that says Slave Owners were Evil Trash, and Indians were all Divine Peaceful Noble People that never killed a white man for any other reason other than Self Defense.

    You are the one who wants to Wash History. Wash it of the full truth and present your Personal Vision of it. Hell Some people think it is Racists to even Point out that when White people went to Africa to get slaves, Most of the time they did not catch them themselves. They Bought them, From Other African Blacks!!!! But try pointing that out and you are just a racist who longs for the days of Slavery according to most Libs.

    We are very Truthful about how they were Treated, Truthful to the point that (and I know cause my kids are both in elementary) that what they are taught today is pretty one sided in Favor of the Indians and Against the South. Which is of course much more black and white than the Reality was.
