From everyday conversations I have, to reading reports of changes to history textbooks... in the immortal words of Popeye the Sailor Man — "I've had all I can stands, 'cause I can't stands no more."
Time for a little myth busting.
Just keep in mind, if you don't happen to agree with me, that's okay. History is to a very large degree, objective.
Just don't tell that to a liberal.
Especially a liberal history professor.
But before you read any further know this, history isn't pretty. There's plenty of blame to go around.
There was a genocide of the American Indians at the hands of the Europeans.
Much to the chagrin of the historical revisionist, the American Indians were slaughtering each other by the bucket load way before the evil White European Christian males ever showed up.
And in light that there are more American Indians alive on planet Earth now vice when Cristoforo Colombo first blew into town, that isn’t much of a so-called "genocide."
Butchering the people down the road from you wasn't invented by nor is it the sole purview of Europeans.
Those from the Orient shouldn't be called Orientals.
Have you ever heard of Occidental College in California? There’s a reason it’s called Occidental. That’s because it’s out west. Get it? Occident - West, Orient - East.
Ergo; the Chinese, Japanese, both of the Koreas, etc, etc, happen to be on the far eastern part of the Eurasian landmass (aka: The Far East). So to correctly use the English language… wait for it… they’re Orientals.
If it would make the PC Nazis feel better to refer to the Irish, the Germans and the Spaniards as Occidentals, then knock yourselves out.
Christians started the Crusades.
The revisionists seem to have missed the part of history detailing the Middle East and North Africa were largely Christian, that is until the armies of Mohammed invaded for no other reason than to spread Islam by the sword.
With both the minority Arab Christians as well as Europe’s Christian pilgrims to many Holy Sites in and around Jerusalem continually being robbed, kidnapped into slavery and in many cases, murdered by the conquering Moslems, Pope Urban II called for the Crusades to free the Holy Land from the Mohammedan invaders, not the other way around.
Whites are totally responsible for slavery in America.
There was very little reason for white slavers to go inland in West Equatorial Africa in search of victims. After all, why should they risk life and limb when there were black Africans willing to sell captured rivals snagged in the latest inter-tribal raid?
Liberal academia may not tell you, but the unvarnished truth of the matter is that the slave trade was just as lucrative for blacks in Senegal and The Cameroons as it was for whites in Charleston and New Orleans.
The Revolutionary War did nothing to free blacks or emancipate women.
First off, we never fought a revolution… we fought a War of Independence. The Founding Fathers never sought to dethrone George III nor invade England. We just wanted independence from the Crown.
But I digress, when the Treaty of Paris took effect seven years after we declared our nationhood, the only Colonial class that won its freedom were those men who were free whites (yes, there were white slaves) who were not only over the age of 21 but also propertied.
What the narrow-visioned revisionists fail to teach is that the War of Independence was a very needed step in the eventual freeing of all the slaves and the emancipation of all women.
As the old Chinese saying goes, the longest journey begins with the first step.
