Response to mountain grammy (Original post)

15. I just remember my US history class in high school ......

Virtuous European settlers overcame those savage Indians
Founding fathers were wonderful men
Better dead than Red
Women and People of Color had a few moments, but really aren't that important

.......... I knew it was all bullshit even then, in the late 1980s, but once I got to college, started doing my own research and learned actual American history, I just got mad about it all.


We need more Howard Zinn, and less Prentice Hall.
