Members of the Tennessee Tea Party are lobbying to erase any instances of slavery or genocide from being connected to the Founding Fathers in order to prevent their reputations from being tarnished.
The audacity of this action alone is absurd. Part of the reason why students learn history is so that they can learn about the mistakes the United States has made and prevent them from ever happening again.
Omitting slavery from history is equivalent to erasing segregation, Jim Crow laws, and the entire Civil War! Slavery is a huge part of American history whether the Tennessee Tea Party wants to admit it or not. Tell the Tennessee Representatives to veto this ridiculous action!
Dear Tennessee Representatives,
Slavery cannot be erased from American history. You must stop the motions made by the Tennessee Tea Party to erase slavery and genocide from history books immediately!
There is no possible way you can give an accurate account of American history without including the mistakes made by the Founding Fathers in the past.
