I remember learning tid-bits of this stuff in middle and high school, but clearly did not delve too deep into details, because I don't think the school systems want us to know how controversial our history is. I have always loved studying history, but watching the videos on Carlisle Indian Preservation and Japanese Americans being moved to military zones continues to prove that so many aspects of our nation's history were based on racism and separating those who are "different." I am in the medical field and learning about J Marion Sims disgusted me. My heart hurt for Anarcha. Can you imagine? 30 procedures before "getting it right." Our nation has made some progress in certain areas of racism, but then continues to move backwards in other areas. We have a long way to go to provide justice for everyone.
