The Past

Looks like Haley Barbour isn't the only one recounting a different version of the past.  Texas new curriculum softens the facts a bit, it seems.
“The decision to accent in the curriculum standards positive aspects of slavery and of slaveholding leaders of the secessionist Confederacy like the treasonous Jefferson Davis will likely have a negative impact on all children who are taught this distorted and biased approach to one of the more brutal forms of oppression devised by mankind,” Texas A&M sociology professor Joe Feagin wrote.
