The division in America began in grade school

    And now we are reaping the results of local educational decisions. How could we have expected to be one nation when the very history we were taught about our nation as kids contradicted itself depending on were you attended school. In the South, kids were taught one version of history and in the North, kids were taught a different version of history. As adults, we retain those lessons as part of our own personal ethos and we inevitably clash with others that have a different version of history.

    You can argue which version was correct all day, but the fact is that we are only a divided nation because we allowed alternative histories to be taught without considering the consequences down the road. Any kid that attended school in New York and then transferred to a school in Georgia will tell you that the history being taught in either place was wildly different. This was a huge mistake that we are only witnessing the consequences of today. We can't change what happened in the past, but we can recognize the incongruity we brought upon ourselves and correct many of the falsehoods that passed as actual historical events.

    Those too far down the rabbit hole of division will resist and are likely too far gone to persuade anyway. This is why critical race theory is so important. Critically analyzing history instead of white-washing it is the only solution to this problem. If you're not willing to look at history critically, you're just part of the problem and a product of the broken system that produced the divisions in the first place. Taking a step back and looking at our history through a critical lens shouldn't be controversial unless you don't want the truth. I suspect many don't.

    Anyone able to tell me exactly what they teach in the South that is so terrible?

    Just going to say it. Critical Race Theory itself is a tool of racial marxists and racist grifters. I would have hopped on the grievance train because its such easy cash, but then I remembered I hold myself too highly for that.

    Good On You.

    That is how We The People destroy the Ideology of Division practiced by hateful despicable disingenuous self-serving angry persons like Little Joe.

    Do you mean actually teaching the history of racism in this country is radical? You prefer the white-washing states like Texas do over the teaching actual historical events? Maybe the real tool here is the brush that is used to paint history rather than teaching history. As an example, were you ever taught about the Tulsa race riots? Of course you weren't and neither was I. Were you ever taught about the native American Genocide? Of course not. Were you ever taught about the Tuskegee Syphilis Study? I'm guessing that you prefer the white-washing to the real history because that was how you were indoctrinated. Critical race theory looks at actual documented events. I'm sure that makes you uncomfortable and icky. It should.

    That's not it at all. We're divided because Marxists can't survive, otherwise.

    You gave him an opening.

    I warned you.

    This clown doesn't want discussion. He wants all to practice the Ideology of Division. Everybody should call him out on his phoniness and manufactured hate and targeted deliberate stupidity, instead of trying reason and fact and intelligent conversation.

    Little Joe already knows all that. He has led a failed life and wants everyone to fail with him.

    The only response to a person with the despicable intent he has, is to call him out constantly, without flowery prose and with direct bluntness of his attempts to divide the People. He is a clown. Give him no quarter and no leeway and no respect.

    Let him post his BS. Don't assume he means any of it to be taken seriously or that he believes in any of it. He is looking for the weak link that he can exploit in a disgusting attempt to be "relevant".

    I was taught plenty about racism.

    CRT, and anti-racism as Ibram X. Kendi (rich, but also somehow constantly oppressed) claims that the ONLY way to fix the injustices of the past are to impose injustices today. These race grifters pull all of these arguments about “your ancestors enslaved mine” as if it’s fact.

    also, yes, I was taught about the Tulsa massacre. Where I live, we certainly were taught about the Native American ‘genocide’ (not really one considering the largest reason for population decline was various infections inadvertently brought to the new world)

    maybe you were blowing spitballs back then.
    if there was less “filler material” in your child’s curriculum, your child would be sleeping like half the kids were when I was in school.

    you’re making decisions about schools after being separated from them for, what, 30 years?

    I know

    Only reason I’ve put up with it at all is because it gives me practice to put down the more considerate of his kind. Fortunately, they still exist although diminishing.

    Yes, they do, and it is the War I also choose to wage.

    anything that doesn't resemble Dickensian England or Somalia is Marxist

    It doesn't matter what you call yourself. You're either a Constitutionalist (aka. "American") or you're not.

    You guys continually accuse everyone else of being the reason for divisions in this country and yet you support the white-washing that is at the core of the division. That tells me everything I need to know about where and how you were raised and "educated"/indoctrinated.

    You like the divisions and are all too happy to white-wash anything you can't abide. You are the type that will have to be made irrelevant in order for this country to realize it's full potential. Do you already feel that irrelevance creeping up on you? You're already a smaller and smaller proportion of the country. Do you feel isolated yet? You will.

    For all of your belly aching and whining, you sure don't see the train that is coming straight at you. You are a dying breed of misfits that cannot learn and must be swept into the dustbin of history. Does it hurt? Hurt to know that you are a lost cause? Just like the South will never rise again, neither will you. This I have confidence in. Your kind never wins the day. You just can't learn from history when all you can do is distort it. Losing is your forte.

    No, it doesn't matter what you call me. You're either an insurrectionist or a Constitutionalist. You can't be both. And we have seen where your ilk stands already.

    No Constitutionalist believes in violating the Constitution to save it. Instead, we prefer to engage on boards like these to demonstrate the error of your ways. You're the rebellious son I never had. :)
