    Wow, this is GREAT! Since the Texas choice of textbooks gets used by most schools throughout the nation, the ’Yankee’s will finally read the truth about the War of Northern Aggression, and how it destroyed the halcyon South where happy darkies sang as they picked dat cotton and everyone lived in peace.

    I’ve heard that ’Yankee textbooks said the War was completely justified, dragging the South kicking and screaming into the 17th century, but now those ’Yankees will finally read the truth.

    Slaves may be workers, but regular workers sure aren’t slaves. You can only stretch euphemisms so far.

    This is a great cartoon. The image and message is so clear.
    Slaves working land stolen from Indians made our country great and we must not pretend otherwise..

    Actually, the Texas choice of Textbooks problem went out when computers became capable of changing the truth in the textbooks sent to other states and inserting the messages that Texan’s wanted their children taught………………………………………….

    I managed to get through about a year and a half of Texas history in the 1960’s and had to move to Illinois to find out that the defenders of the Alamo were actually rebelling against the Mexican government because they had outlawed slavery.

    It’s my understanding that McGraw-Hill is sending out patches for their text books. On occasion I had to glue those little strips of paper into publications while sitting in a windowless, sound-proofed room. The people that have to do this to those text books have my sympathy.

    “Forced migration” isn’t much of an improvement.

    An exact quote:
    “The Atlantic Slave Trade between the 1500s and 1800s brought millions of workers from Africa to the southern United States to work on agricultural plantations.”
    How long was this verbage out there before it got objected to? How many schools? How many states? How many teachers, principals? How many editor?
    When we homeschooled, my wife completely avoided history ‘textbooks’. They are generally egregious. This just happens to be a more egregious example of their frequent egregiosity. There are plenty of ways to read history without resorting to textbooks.

    What did you expect? The truth?

    H I S T O R Y = HIS (S)TORY….. get it?

    The victor gets to write the story. Truth? maybe. But, you can rest assured that whatever the truth is, the story will paint the victor as a shinning beacon on the hill while the loser is …well … a loser and not entitled to any consideration as to motive and may well paint him as the devil in disguise.

    Hey, every single race of people, every single nation state has kept slaves and – in due course – been slaves. Why even today there are nations that approve of and have slaves.

    So it is not uncommon. And yes, text books should tell truth regardless of who is framed as good or bad.

    But that is not human nature.

    So who is it that let Texas print all the text books and why?

    I’d say follow the money but……

    I expected somebody somewhere to have noticed it by now. It’s in the wild and there are plenty of people of plenty of persuassions who have had a chance to see it.
    Did they see it and not care?
    Did they not look?
    Don’t parents read their children’s textbooks?
    Don’t teachers?

    And while on the subject, slavery still exists in East Africa today. I personally bore witness of it in Uganda. I cannot say I saw it in Tanzania.
    TZ is more famous for hacking albinos for magic potions. Just google “Tanzania albino”. What you read is true, except for the parts where the officials claim to be curbing it. The western-educated ruling elite are the biggest consumers (side note for another day: ignorance is not the problem; education is not the solution), especially when elections loom, as they do now.

    What a ridiculous situation. I just can’t accept the premise that school districts can’t print their own darned books – after they’ve carefully vetted them and removed the virulently nutzoid revisionist history. Or maybe just dump them on to tablets, and eliminate the whole bookprinting thing entirely.

    With their own propaganda.
