    Seriously. A small lunatic fringe will always be stupid, its best to ignore them and ostracize them to let them know that their behavior is not acceptable in civilized society. The worse thing we can do is make the assumption that this sort of thing is normal.

    I'm failing to see the quote that states the TN tea party wants to remove all incidents of slavery and genocide from American textbooks. Maybe someone can point it out to me.

    This is silly...of COURSE they should continue to teach our history. In fact they should expound...the history of Native Americans as slaveholders, the history of freed slaves as slaveholders, the history of slavery throughout the world...they should teach it ALL...not just the sanitized evil white Euroslaveholder history.

    Might even be helpful to teach which cultures continue now as then to embrace the barbaric practice of slavery.

    I live in TN and I support the Tea Party. I know people who are Tea Party members and never have I heard anyone wanting to remove slavery from textbooks.

    Well God really had nothing to do with American politics until 1956 then we started to put it on our money and everything...
    But seriously why would you want slavery removed from the textbooks? Does it make your "perfect little America" not look so perfect or something?

    Alfons, it has nothing to do with God. When teaching history, what happened should be taught. Slavery, while a horrible stain on our history, happened. Therefore, it should be talked about.

    Again, show me the proof that the TN tea party wants to remove slavery from textbooks.
