Again the bottom line is there are flaws in the curricula of History courses and or Project initiated namely as you mentioned above the "1619 Project" and ANY introspection based on inaccuracies will be a futile attempt on teaching the subject populace about the importance of racial equality and prevalent bias in society...

A few videos about inaccuracies in "1619 Project"... nice try though ...


Well you probably do not like this one because it is from RT:


And what about a project of some kind for the atrocities committed against Native Americans???
you miss the forest for the trees yet again. I am not saying the 1619 Project is an accurate representation of US history. I am highlighting the fact that people care enough to debate the subject at a national level. While other nations brush such concerns under the carpet and pretend it never happened.

Slavery was long practised and thrived in Europe, Asia and the middle east, especially prevalent in the islamic world including the Ottoman empire that abolished slavery in 1924. It isn't an American phenomenon, slaves have suffered far worse and for much longer in Europe, middle east and Asia. Do you see a similar debates in these societies? Modern day slavery thrives in the muslim world, UAE, Kuwait and Saudi and yet no one is discussing it.

I concur.

Oh Lord ... BUT other nations DO NOT brag blatantly to be a sole "champion of freedom" and liberty for ALL...

..America is flawed we know it, we are working on it.. while the rest that have a great deal of soul searching to do themselves couldn't even be bothered. One of the two will learn, evolve and improve the other won't.

Maybe we are not qualified to solve the problem.Like committing genocide and continuing apartheid for more than 100 years.When we commit similar crimes, we will also reflect on it.

By the way, how do you reduce the 40 million native Americans to 1% of the original number?

Only time will tell of the progress ...

That is your point of view of things based on your experiences OTHERS might have a totally different view based on their experiences ... so the result of soul searching for ALL should be to evolve and improve together for the sake of humanity and NOT to BULLY the weaker smaller ones into submission ...

That sounds great and all but I’ll tell you why it’s largely meaningless. This entire country was founded on stolen land. So basically you’re saying that virtue signaling is enough to compensate for the genocide of an entire race? The ethnic cleansing of entire continents? It’s meaningless because it doesn’t address what was lost. When white Americans start shipping themselves back to Europe and allow native Americans to reclaim this land, then that would meaningfully address the wrongs of history. Other than that, just saying “sorry” while continuing to live off the riches of what was stolen is actually quite meaningless. And that is why I really don’t see any possibility that natives, blacks and Latinos will ever let go of their resentment against white America and this is why as whites slide below 50% of the population, we will likely see increased chaos, strife, racial conflict and hatred boil to the surface. A common American identity and understanding of history is fraying and will only become more conflicted.

you have a poor grasp of history if you think anyone is native to any land since the dawn of man.
Not even the Japanese can claim they are indigenous to their lands. All land is stolen from someone through conquest.
When we commit similar crimes
you commit them even today. China has one of the bloodiest histories In all of recorded time.
By China I mean the land mass that represents todays China.

It's a Nazi theory, no wonder US never hesitates to invade and bomb other countries around the world, you have this crazy theory to back you up.

So you won’t even admit that this country was stolen by Europeans and populated by Europeans by means of genocide. This just proves my point, the virtue signaling is quite meaningless and will do nothing to stem the immense resentment against whites due to historic grievances. That was fine and dandy when whites were completely dominant in population and power but as they lose control l, like what is transpiring now, things will get ugly. Look at South Africa.
