“Florida’s curriculum”, Monterey Herald – July 26, 2023
Dishonest Kamala Harris is at it again. She stated that the new curriculum being taught in Florida on Black history claims that slavery was good for Black people. What the curriculum actually did state was that many Blacks through their perseverance learned job skills like becoming blacksmiths and other skills in slavery and used them after becoming free. The study praised Blacks’ perseverance and will to overcome slavery and become successful and it did not praise brutal and evil slavery.
The new curriculum was written by Black scholars such as Dr. William Allen, former chairman of the civil rights commission.
Other facts, brutal Black-on-Black slavery existed in Africa for many centuries before and after the U.S. existed, many Black African leaders sold thousands of Blacks into slavery to the new world, and thousands of Blacks owned many thousands of slaves in America. Black and white liberals never admit that 350,000 white Union soldiers died fighting against slavery in the Civil War. Liberals never admit that the United States and England were the first two countries to abolish slavery and that an all-white Congress overwhelmingly passed the 13th, 14th, and 15th amendments, to abolish slavery, to allow Blacks to become citizens, and the right for Blacks to vote. Liberals never acknowledge either that the English navy destroyed slave camps in the West. The U.S. Supreme Court freed African kidnapped slaves in the Amistad case over Spanish claims of the slaves and as the rest of the world continued slavery, we ended it in our country.
