So lets not teach history in school because it might antagonize people
you have a point matt. Crow and I were discussing in another thread about
Ancient history, really, everyones version is going to be different.. its how
they seen it at the time..
you know history has to be discussed.. its going to be wether we want to or not
people want to know. or at least get somewhat of a better picture..
I understand what bubba is saying when he speaks about sterotypes..
because its the same with other nationalities that dwell in the past. to which
I wont mention ( thats a whole nother issue) but at the same time, its hard to not
discuss it, people keep saying we did this, you did this, and they did that..
but, this was much worse then anything weve ever experienced in our civilized
world as we know it.. people say get over it, but thats not reaching into the compassionite side of yourself.. and saying, well, I have to just let this go.
yes, we are in a war right now, but, its nothing like what happened then, and
war is horrible in any way you look at it, now and then..
there is now sterotypes against Americans, even though some know us very
well. our country is still the BAD GUY and I am sure it creates Problems NOW>
what can we do about it?? well. lets see, how about we try to understand better
each others countries for one.. try to come together on a certain level, instead of
theres never going to be happy medium until we all find a way to agree on history
and the present.. we cant all see it one way.
Bubba, you came to America.. did you see anything that would make you think
we are heathens?
we are sterotyped by all of the world for our war on terror..
