it was strike down thankfully. But the fact that it was proposed, to change it into a softer term is disgusting. And why was it changed like this? Maybe it's because Republicans, don't want history to be taught critically. Maybe because teaching history critically, may teach people people to look at history and race critically, or in other words, giving the means for people to figure out CRT themselves. Because teachers don't teach it, we get inklings of it through history, but never directly told or stated. (CRT is not taught until collage) Maybe it's because talking heads like tucker Carlson, keep saying that CRT, is making people hate their country. And so now, to curb that, the same ideology is now trying to change what is taught in history and how it's presented. Changing the absolute horror that is slavery, and trying to make it look more palatable, is inexcusable.

I wonder why you weren't raging when schools were indoctrinating kids with critical race theory, openly being racist against white people and pointless gender studies?

Slavery was/is bad - has been around for thousands of years, was not invented or started in the west, it is still rife in many parts of Africa and Asia and other places in the world. Maybe schools should be teaching how North African's were roaming the seas for hundreds of years around the coasts of Europe and enslaving entire villages as well as ship crews. You never hear of this in schools as it doesn't seem to fit the narrative some want to push.

This is a decent proposal. The initial and perhaps most egregious crime was uprooting those people, and there is not enough focus on this. Also the people who owned the slaveships don't get flag for this at all, which brings the whole discourse into question.

I am researching the problem of slavery in the past and present at the university. I have written several articles on this subject. On the page https://graduateway.com/essay-examples/slavery/ you can read quite interesting information about slavery and its manifestations in the modern capitalist world.
It is very strange.

An interesting point and this type of discussion is usually shut down PDQ. Not just those who owned the ships, but those who profited in any way from slave labor. The plantation owners in the American south were engaged in some dastardly and inhumane farming, but they were really big fish in little ponds whose wealth and profits didn't compare to the big whigs who ran cotton as an industry. The cotton picked in Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, etc. was baled up was then put on boats, transported to NYC, and brokered by Yankees for sale to England. It was mega-business, and it supplied a large (majority?) portion of the cotton that fed the linen mills in England that kickstarted the industrial revolution. Everyone who made money off that economy was complicit. England may have 'abolished slavery' before the USA, but they were happy to buy slave-labor raw product, and in Egypt and India where cotton was also being grown on large scale, the indigenous workers there might as well have been slaves throughout the 19th century. It wasn't until more tech came along ... the cotton gin, farm engines, trains, and more efficient ways of packing cotton for transport and storage prior to use, that the amount of human labor needed to maintain production of clothing for basically the entire 19th century world began to decrease. All that while, 100 years give or take of early industrialization, who was really getting rich off slave labor?

This is the most stupid comment I've read in my life.

The KKK was a violent arm of the Demonrats party.
Abe Licoln is the FOUNDER of the Republican party.
Woodrow Wilson congratulated D.W. Griffith for his "masterpiece" pro-slavery propaganda in 1915.

Get your facts together, please.

Well the dots connect as soon as you see the big 'makers', what kinds of people they truely are. Bottom line is, when merchants run your country/empire it is all going to sh** and everyone will suffer eventually until natural order is restored.

Ummm that's part of you know. Slavery? It's taught in general broad terms of the events but every part of it is condemned. So i'm not sure where your coming from. A lot the focus is put onto the slaves working conditions and how they were bare minimum commonly abused and treated like complete shit. And at worst slaves straight up being murdered. But slaveships are mentioned, and by affiliation, complicit.
