With today’s society and IQ level, I felt it prudent to point out the obvious. You cannot erase history. Snowflakes can remove everything that they want in an attempt to hide history. However, the fact remains the slavery did happen. The same people that wanted to protect censorship rights are the same ones censoring history. They claim their actions are to protect future generations, but in essence, they are making their children fragile eggshells incapable of functioning in society. States continue to remove statutes and redesign flags. Yet, movies continue to portray slavery and unjust social issues as seen in the writer’s eyes. In other words, their interpretation of history.
Instead of focusing on the negative connotations that these statutes and flags portray, look at the positive side of history. Instead of telling children that their ancestors were slaves and Americans owe even more to them, point out the prominent figures throughout history that fought for social justice and equal rights. This would encourage races to get together again. One should be in awe showing their children this is how we were treated centuries ago and these individuals were able to get us the rights we take for granted today.
If Americans continue with the urge to erase history, can we please erase 2008 to 2016? Why, you ask? Those are the years Obama was president of our great nation. Obama was a lot of things but great was not one of them. I can think of a lot of black people that would make a great president and are worthy of being America’s first black president. For instance, Morgan Freeman or Dwayne Johnson would do just. Numerous individuals believe President Trump caused all the heartache the rest of the world has with the United States. I like to think of those people as race horses, because they couldn’t see the shit that Obama prolonged or outright caused from his inaction as “serving” as the president. The only thing he did was hold the title. So, if we are erasing history, let us not stop at slavery.
My viewpoint on erasing history is simple. Removing historical statutes and connotations will not change history. Why? Because our sacred United States Constitution will not change and it mentions slavery throughout this national treasure. You want to remove these prominent figures and historical times throughout history and continue to lie to your children, by al means do it. So long as it doesn’t affect me, my family, or the truth!
