    The idea that Washington's Birthday became President's Day as some sort of nefarious attempt at historical revisionism is laughably preposterous.
    Except that's exactly what happened. Your idea that it was to honor Lincoln only means that you will believe whatever you're told.

    But YOU know the REAL reason, amirite? Do you have any evidence to support your cockamamie theory?

    The mother of an eight-year-old wants to know why a Tennessee school teacher gave her child a handout from the Nation of Islam that portrayed the presidents on Mount Rushmore as being racists.
    Well, you know, if the shoe fits.

    By today's standards - yes - they were racist. They just didn't care back then which is why slavery and other practices were permitted to continue for so long.

    But to try to claim they were NOT is absurd.

    Yeah, and it was ridiculous. You honestly think Washington's Birthday was changed to President's Day to diminish the historical relevance of the Founding Fathers. That is beyond stupid.

    I am a history major and through my many years of history classes K-12 + five years of college I never had a teacher who emphasized the bad over the good when it came to the Founders. After all, what make the biggest impact in history: Jefferson's Louisiana Purchase or his philandering with slave women?

    They don't have to 'emphasize" it.

    You claim it's called "President's Day" to honor Abraham Lincoln. That speaks for itself.

    Let's at least give credit to half of those on the mount: Washington and Jefferson. What other country besides America on the planet was more free back in 1776?

    Anyone else??? Huh????

    I don't belive Washington and Jefferson were any more racist that our current installment, Barak Obama---who continually reminds the world of his Blackness---even though it is semi-Blackness.

    Now Islamic people are the very last people on the earth that should be complaining about slavery (this just cracks me up).

    You see, the very first place to outlaw slavery was Iceland back in 1117. The Nordic countries were at the forefront on human rights. Islamic nations are the among the worst, knowing that Saudia Arabia was the last nation to outlaw slavery.

    If Liberals want to cry about slavery, let them go the the nations where slaves can still be purchased: Togo, the Ivory Coast, Senegal, and many others. You sure won't see the Nation of Islam going into these areas and protesting about it.

    They won't do that. They'll complain about American history regarding slavery, women's right's, voting rights, and so on but will ignore modern slavery, the sale of women into slavery, FMG, and so on. In fact they will even bar women who suffered from Islamic atrocities first hand from speaking.

    America is their target for their complaints and has been for the past generation. They haven't a clue outside that.
