Literally the first thing I found. 

 

I know a pinterester (or whatever they call themselves). I'm putting her on this.

I just realized that we could have named him Doakes and had the collar say, "Surprise, mother pupper"

 

Oh well. Too late!

Went to DC last night to see the 8th and I Marine parade.

 

The choreography and precision that they have is very impressive.

 

Its definitely worth going down there to see it.

As a student and teacher of history, the 1619 Project has been extremely informative and rewarding.

It's frustrating to learn what you haven't been taught. it's informative, but also pretty frustrating. 

 

For example, the Tuskegee experiments should be required knowledge. And, yet...

I definitely see how that is frustrating. On the other hand, many people seem to be frustrated that this publication has come out at all.

I do think ignorance relating to this subject is partly why we have the problems we do around race. It's harder to take certain positions when you have a deeper knowledge of the history related to them.

100%.

 

I actually brought up Tuskegee because I did a quick fb poll last year (to the day) that asked how many people knew about this. A lot more "yes" than I expected, but I think people were fronting for social media.

The other short article on the medical experiments during slavery and the impact they still have today was an eye opener to me.

The overall impact of slavery is unfortunately still immense, which is why I detest when one dismisses it because of how long ago it was.

The sheer amount of African-American history is overwhelming, not to mention harrowing. Plus there's the white washing of it that we have all been exposed to. So the level of ignorance is understandable, yet it's a problem, and I wish people would try to educate themselves more on the topic before reaching some of the conclusions that are commonly reached on the subject. The 1619 Project is an excellent resource to do so and has greatly further educated me on the subject. For that I am grateful.
