Shit I learned in school

...because, really, I DO believe there's a deliberate sabotage of Public Education being done simply by handing a "liberal" program over to be administered by "conservatives". In 7th grade in Texas you're taught Texas History. Some of it would be almost unrecognizable from a Yankee point of view. For instance, we were taught that the Civil War wasn't about slavery, it was about State's Rights. State's Rights to spend civic money and exercise military and police powers to enforce slavery. We were also told, and I have reason to believe that it's gotten worse, we were told that the Slaves were well treated, given decent food and housing, and Medical Care. Happy Days on de ol' Plantation wif all de Darkies singin' and happy and de Massa jes' lubbin all of dem! O, de sun shines bright on my old Kentucky home it's summer and the darkies are gay... You smile and laugh and sing because the Massah would beat you and maybe have you killed if you indicated any dissatisfaction with the arrangement. It's that simple.

National “burn the confederate flag” day, 9/12

Because the Hatemongers and Deathmongers have gotten increasingly abusive in their rallies to drum up support of Killing People. While they say they're not Racist about it in any way, they do fly the Confederate Battle Flag, the "Southern Cross" and sometimes bear signs saying "Not Hate, Heritage" and the Hate Flag. It's a heritage of hatred. Of forcing Americans to surrender their liberties before birth based on THEIR heritage and the color of their skins. Their Hate Heritage, and mine, killed about 300,000 AMERICANS who opposed their Slavery and another 180,000 of their own comrades. Fighting for nothing more, from their sick point of view, than Hatred of other human beings that is so fierce even today that they feel it was right to keep them in bondage. 19631
