How much do you believe our history informs people's beliefs and behavior today? What information in this module stood out to you or impacted you the most?
I think the history we are taught completely impacts our beliefs and behaviors. For example in school we were taught about the civil rights movement and made to believe that racism is a thing of the past. And that the only racism left that exists are those belonging to white supremacy groups.
Ignorances is bliss.
To be completely honest, prior to watching these videos I only knew a fraction of what I learned. I had been blissfully unaware that much of what I have learned in school had been taught in a way that keeps majority of white men and woman ignorant to how our country was built.
I always had this idea that our Country was this great place that accepts all races and we are all living peacefully and equally. I can tell you now that idea has been completely shattered and I am deeply saddened that I was blinding walking through life thus far thinking we are all equal when in reality we are not.
