    1. Don’t go to the 5 nation reservation there either if you are white my cousin will make payment

    2. @sharon trujillo you people make me thankful,

      Thankful to be from Oregon, I know that we have protests but we grow cannabis

    1. @Frail Bones Biden BS. The Democrats and Republicans traded places in the 20th century. The party of Abraham Lincoln is now the party of the Confederacy.

    2. @whatitis myman : It’s straight from the White supremacist playbook. Detraction in order to weaken or cloud the issue. It’s best to just ignore it and continue conversing with those more worthy. Right now, the WSs are terrified because we are talking about things they would rather remain buried.

    3. @Nathan Lewis LOL! Yes they met up and switched sides??? Obama was the first clean intelligent black man? Yeah it sure sounds like they switched!!!!

    4. @Richard Clarke He was found not guilty Little BOY blue sheep!!! Even Trump’s black tenants said so! Little BOY Blue Sheep!!!

    1. Exactly! Systemically withheld from school history books, brown /bronzed historical placards, holidays, etc. But there were a bunch of confederate monuments, streets schools and emphasis in history books.

    2. @Everton Rowe in fairness you can purposely overlook something. But definitely wrong awkward choice of words.

    3. @Anarchist86ed provide that it wasn’t real. Don’t think that people are going to take a lier word for anything anymore.

  1. Thanks MSNBC for educating us non-Americans about a history that also doesn’t make it into our American History books. The Tulsa Race Massacre – didn’t know but not surprised. Juneteeth – had no clue about those emancipation shenanigans. Two more years of enslavement to make plantation owners more money – and a bit more time for them to practice rapey, lynchy behaviours. Wow. (And I don’t mean that in a good way, either.)

    1. @Thomas Armsworthy Jr Hi. No, not really. That’s the american spin on things. There was no clear winner in that War, and we did sack the White House! Given that our national ego isn’t suckled to fighting wars and pounding our chests, we’re ok with a well-timed retreat (unlike The Vietnam War). Aside from losing the 48th parallel – what a difference that would have made in our collective weather! – most of us don’t care about a war with USA. Heck, we barely care about the battles fought in our own yard. (I will also suggest reading a canadian history of The War of 1812. Interesting times.)

    2. Well said, and as sociologist perhaps we should share with our Neighbour that Canada is guilty as well for attempting reconciliation without the whole truth in our history books either (with respect to aboriginals still fighting for a fair recompense.

    3. @EvilisWhereEvilThinks I totally agree! It’s not only disgusting what the Canadian Government with a policy of assimilate or else carried out by the Catholic Church did to the Indigenous Peoples in this country, we are shamefully slow to act. An apology and admitting fault was big first step (National Apology 2008) and at least we’re not hiding from it. The only revisionist history in canadian schools will be the inclusion and critical discussion of this ugly part of our past and the consequences. And don’t get me started on how ‘The Monarchy’ reneged on their end of the Treaties and have done nothing since 1871 to uphold the legal documents that they signed! (The friggin’ cowards. What good are they in Canada, anyway?)

  2. American history is filled with uncomfortable truths regarding race and immigration, the sooner Republican snowflakes come to grips with it and learn our full history so we don’t repeat it the better.

  3. These uncomfortable truths will never make it to the ears that need to hear them. Conservative media outlets can’t show diversity, it would upset the base. Same reason Trump didn’t show compassion for George Floyd, he thought it would show weakness to his base of voters. They don’t want to feel responsible or get called out. Being held accountable is what Republicans avoid at all cost.

    1. I agree with everything you said except for why trump didn’t show compassion for George Floyd. The reason is trump has no compassion to begin with.

    2. They hear them they ignore make excuses downplay and claim that’s things have changed.overflowing with bullsh.t

  4. There is a notable contrast between taking down confederate statues to tell the perspective of history through a new lenses and suppressing modern history of January 6th.

  5. We are ALL here on earth as spiritual beings having a human experience. Our lives are a blink of an eye in relation to the age of mother earth, and all that is. There are Universal laws governing our existence as physical beings, , all revolving around truth, love and justice. All contrary actions create bad karma, and these horrible things pink people have done and continue to do against Black people in US and around the world will destroy them.

    1. @Joel Goldsmith It’s not about survival. It’s about whether your spirit will graduate to a higher level of being or whether it will remain in the lower levels where hate,violence,injustice,hypocrisy, lies, manipulation, etc etc thrive.

    2. @Evans Kinyua That’s a theory. Wishful thinking. You’re repeating something you want to believe. Believing in this opens yourself up to being more susceptible to believing in other far fetched ideas and conspiracy theories. Be careful what you allow yourself to believe in. It can be bad for you.

    3. They are reaping what they have sown . Our Creator said that he who leads into captivity shall go into captivity. He who lives by the sword, gun, bomb shall die by it. Those are our creator’s words. He is not a man that he would lie. APTTMHY May The king Reign Forever . APTTMHY

  6. Like holocaust deniers, African American people have had to struggle against systemic denial of their historical horrors here.

    1. Exactly. We judge other countries as being hypocritical if they don’t acknowledge their violent past, but totally exempt ourselves from any kind of responsibility and remorse. As witnessed by conservatives getting upset by “apologetic” leaders. We can never move forward if we don’t acknowledge AND apologize our crimes. Depending on one’s race, we live with the benefits or deficits of the past.

  7. How about this:

    We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. That, to secure these rights, governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed.

    ALL men are created equal – not just whites, not just blacks, not just Asians, not just

    Unalienable rights – not just for whites, not just for blacks, not just for Asians , not just .

    The consent of the governed – not just whites, not just blacks, not just Asians, not a minority (that means you Republicans), BUT EVERYONE !

    But this is just the Declaration of Independence, not the Constitution. That means that it doesn’t apply, right?

    1. Alfred, give us a year any year, in which America could be said to have lived up to these ideals. Americans are enarmored with “great rhetoric,” but hate truths and real actions!

    2. During the writing of the constitution there were slaves, many of the founders owned slaves, so no that didn’t cover black people because in there eyes we were property.

    3. @@S Ro – so does that mean you are against the lines in the Declaration of Independence? Why don’t you go live in Russia or North Korea or China?

    4. @@Lemmon Harris – never, but we strive for it. Well, at least all the non-Republicans strive for it.

  8. Before you can teach American history in American schools you have to teach the students how to learn. Then you have to teach them that what happened before today matters. They have to suss that today is the way that it is because of what happened yesterday. Schools have been “teaching” a sanitised and approved by The Powers That Be story of the past and at the same time, avoided the concept of different views of the past that depend on from where you are looking. Perspective, POV and critical thinking with an open mind. If you can’t instill those basic tools in your students, what is the point of going no deeper than having them memorise names and dates?
    I’ll tell you: there isn’t one. If you’re not going to do it right then just make sure that they can make their own breakfast and then let them go.
    Oh yeah, one related point: Those who committed the atrocities in Tulsa and the other cities, if asked, would have identified themselves as Christians. Amen.

  9. “Perhaps if we had done it decades ago we wouldn’t be here”. You’re not pure, don’t believe the hype and get over your selves (those who believe in American exceptionalism).

  10. Am ashamed to say I lived in Tulsa when I was a child and not once did I learn about this in school. I’m white and angry that history books in my school omitted this tragedy.

    1. Juneteenth is yet another attempt to appease BLKs. The history of Tulsa is a lie. Slavery is a lie. Nothing of what they tell you is real.

  11. Having my home firebombed is fortunately something I’ve never had to live through. Although I have known people who did. They were Palestinians who still carried the keys to property that was stolen from them. Yet another story of injustice that American children are ignorant to.
