This was largely new for me. And I constantly feel angry and embarrassed by our US history classes for not sharing stories about the Bath Riots which led to Nazi Scientists making formulas for what they did during the Holocaust, and American Indian adoption to snuff out and assimilate the American Indians, or even the female testing on Black and minority women.
There were few things that I went into this module knowing other than the vocabulary and while it doesn't surprise me it does frustrate and upset me. It upsets me that we don't address our racism throughout our country's history like other countries have. Even more than not addressing parts of history, we minimalize what we do talk about and as a teacher it bothers me. Our textbooks and lessons as history teachers glorify all the wrong parts of our nation's timeline of events . They also minimize, distort, or falsify what happened during the Japanese internment camps, the civil rights era, dealings with American Indians, and expansion west to name a few.
I look forward to more videos which will help me to understand how many groups of minority people have been affected by white politics. I need that knowledge base to have and give examples to others who were as misinformed as I was .
