Mom’s Complaint Causes Textbook Rewrite
Roni Dean-Burren (in the picture) got a text message from her son, Coby Burren, with a photo wrongly reporting on the Atlantic Slave Trade during the 1500s through 1800s.
The captions in the McGraw-Hill history book wrote:
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.
Obviously, writings like this are caused to soften the blow for whites today about what their ancestors did during this period of illegally kidnapping, killing, raping, and holding captive innocent children, men and women from Africa and Europe.
If people read the wording “workers” it is presented as if this was a economical move that benefitted the workers and the goodhearted United States of America.
This got a lot of attention, in fact, so much attention that McGraw-Hill are recalling the books and rewriting it correctly. We commend Coby and his mother Roni for making a statement against how history is told and how it really went! 🙂
