Watching these videos and learning about other incredibly racist historical events in the US on other platforms as of late has really made me realize just how patriotically skewed my US History education has been. In my high school AP European History Class, I remember learning about the good, bad and ugly in European history, with a large emphasis but on the injustices and atrocities witnessed during the times of the conquistadors and the Holocaust as well as their lasting effects on present European way of life. Yet, AP US History class focused almost entirely on our innovation and success in colonization, the enlightenment era, world wars, etc. Some of this information discussed in the videos, such as the Japanese internment and the displacement of Native Americans, was brushed upon very lightly in class and glossed over with a kind of "we apologized and everything is fine now because America is the land of the free" mantra. I know now that this is complete bull, I wish I had known then and spoken out. I'm considering sending some of these videos to my previous AP US History teacher (I believe he is still at that high school) and asking where these were in our education, if he knew about that history, and if so, why he didn't teach it. I am just now learning about the "father of gynecology", Dr. Sims; I wonder if my gynecologist knows about him. I'm just learning about the gasoline baths. And continued redlining. I'm so disappointed in my high school for not teaching this - we are so much more able to repeat these shameful actions if we never knew they happened before.
