    Why not? The history of Christopher Columbus doesn't exclude the Indians, so what is inaccurate about the factual history?

    I understand there are many who are plagued with guilt related to the Indians, and have a need to place halo's around their history and culture, so the pushback is required, but the dtory of of Columbus is rather simple, and rather important.

    It is. It's criminal how the left treats the black community.

    They make up a mere 12 percent of the U.S. population, yet they are 70 percent of the prison population. They are the most unemployed, the least educated, the most dysfunctional within their communities, and the most broken in their family structures. You don't see these epidemic problems in the Hispanic, Asian, Indian, Middle Easterm, etc, communities.

    Years of condescension and abuse from entitlements and pandering from the left has incapacitated much of the black community, and they are literally taught from a young age to associate anything negative in their lives with racism. They believe white America sits around in private rooms devising ways to make their lives as miserable and hopeless as possible.

    And there is a faction of conservative black America that has escaped the liberal vortex that wants so badly to help, but the media and left give them no voice, and ridicule them to no end.

    That's your party. That is all there is to your party. It's shameful.

    How else would you suggest they treat black America and keep them as 95% Democratic voting block then?
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Maybe people who aren't so focused on skin color and race might not think about skin color and race when they plan a menu of common foods that almost everybody enjoys? Would you believe that fried chicken and cornbread are staples and frequently served in my household and watermelon is one of my very favorite summer things. And I never once--at least up until now--associated them with black people.

    And now I am feeling resentful that our well intended but racist people are requiring me to associate a race with foods that I just considered good food and would serve to everybody without a second thought.

    You may be the only person who hasn't thought of the black people, fried chicken connection or heard of it. Geez, in China they've even got "Obama Fried Chicken" restaurants. Seriously, google it. The pictures in this thread aren't something we just made up now off the top of our heads.

    The real problem: "Booo Hooo, why don't they vote Republican? Waaaaaaah! We lost because they all voted for Obama...."

    My party? I was unaware of how the Independence Party of Minnesota treated people.

    We're not Europeans, and it's not 1503 anymore. We don't have to teach history from that perspective. Should we include how Columbus treated the natives, or is that just liberal revisionism too?
