African and Native American labor was not used very extensively to build things. The builders tended to be poor European immigrants in the east and poor Asian immigrants in the west.
I agree. This is the "History" Channel. Well, that and aliens, UFOs, loggers with axes, Nostradamus theories, you know the really good TV that can really compete with "Jersey Shore".
Just one more reason--we're upto 1,517,436 now--I HATE the Hitler Channel. This series, from title to theme to execution, seemed incredible closed-minded to me. Come on, History Channel. Show me "The Women Who Were Innovators but Confined to the Home" or "The Races Who We Give No Credit To"
.Know your history!! Men Who Built America. Explains the link of the Rockefeller, Vanderbilt, Standard Oil, Tesla, JP Morgan and more. There is no mention of Blacks, Native Americans or Asians Killed or treaties broken to lay the railroad or oil pipe lines. Details rise of electricity, oil and trains.. Tesla wanted whole world to have FREE ELECTRICITY. JP Morgan, cancelled the project. Murder and lies omitted from MEN WHO BUILT AMERICA. who didn't care about the people they stole it from.

Black Men, Quotes Statements Truths, American History, True Tho, Black People, So True, Forget Vs, Shouldn T Forget, Black History
I have never found this argument logical, hence the reason I am so relentlessly in support of Black History Month. When people want folks to "get over slavery" it just makes me realize their guilty conscience is talking. No one wants you to "forget" something they're not responsible for.
Very racist!! So we should never forget when whites become victims, but it is ok to do so when blacks are victims? So when young black men are shot and incarcerated we should just forget? In the words of Lauren Hill "you think our lives are cheap, and easy to be wasted"
"The attitudes of some white people are inconsistent when it comes to historical memory." ..... people need to stop ... no one is saying to get over slavery it was a horrible period in history but it wasn't just BLACK people who were forced into slavery ... what needs to stop and what people need to get over is the fact that people thinking it's okay to act a certain way because of events over 100 years ago ... even 50 years ago ... times have changed!!! your ancestors would be ashamed!
Everyone's history is American history and deserves equal exposure under the sun.
Never Forget vs. 'Forgotten' Screw you, fucktard whites
.WOW its true tho! So quit telling me to get over it¡
So true! one of these things is not like the others?

True of many (if not all) countries, including the USA. Don't get me wrong. I love my country. I love the best that it is and has been. But I'm not willing to just accept those areas where it still needs improvement. #patriotism #revisionist #history #corporate #government
Truth be told... Cases in point are the invisible WMD of Saddam Hussein, the atrocities and broken treaties with the American Indians, what happened with the incarceration of countless thousands of innocent Japanese Americans during WW2, etc. These speak to the evilness and corruption of the greedy and powerful...
I've known this for a while as a US citizen, but it is true for all nations and their history books. The same story will look completely different for opposing countries. You can't always trust the picture painted for you when the painter has an agenda.
I had a history teacher who actually knew this and used his own specific history books to teach us because he didn't want us to learn the bias
How objective are secondary/tertiary historical sources, such as History books? Should they be objective, and if so, how would we ensure that? If not, what criteria should be employed in selecting what to put in?
Too true! I once had a history teacher who made us watch what Columbus did, and how the natives Americans had huge civilizations many years before Europeans came. How the English, and Spaniards decimated their cultures. None of that was in our history books.
Wow, well said!!! . . #politics . . #economy

little red ridding hood, or a deadly weapon?

Little Red, Red Riding Hood, Bottle Of Wine, Banned Books, Gun Control
This is honestly up there as one of my favorite photographs. It stirs up such a reaction in me that America would rather ban books (yes-the US banned certain versions of Little Red Riding Hood b/c she had wine in her basket) than assault weapons. This is proper photojournalism for current events and I have major respect for this piece.
Gun Control Ad. Little Red Riding Hood was pulled from a California school and challenged by another because it mentions wine.
One child is holding something that's been banned in America to protect them. Guess which one. Answer: we keep 'Little Red Riding Hood' out of schools because of the bottle of wine in her basket. Why not the assault weapon?
WOW! The ad contrasting an AR-15 with a classic cautionary tale (which was banned by two California schools in 1990 because Little Red Riding Hood is carrying a bottle of wine in her basket, (a detail taken directly from the original 17th-century story by Charles Perrault)
We keep "Little red riding hood" out of our schools because of a bottle of wine in her basket. Why not assault weapons?

Up until it was briefly held by Italy in 1931 to 1945, Ethiopia was the only African territory that resisted complete colonization by Europeans. Italy did indeed colonize part of ancient Ethiopia, the area along the Red Sea that became known as the independent country, Eritrea. However, under the leadership of Emperor Menelik II, Ethiopia resisted European attempts to colonize all of the country.

Noor was run over and killed by her own father in a parking lot in Arizona because she had brought "dishonor" to her family because having her picture taken with boys and wearing modern clothing was too Westernized for her father's taste... JUST a little reminder to those who still believe in "TOLERANCE" from the muslim (islam), or better known as the religion of peace population.
Iraqi-American Noor was murdered by her Iraqi-American as an "honor killing" America for being "too western" . MSM ignored.
This was Noor Almaleki, victim of an honor killing by her own father here in the US. Every woman in this country should be protecting each other from this.
Do You Want Sharia Law? The war on women from Obama and Muslims. This young woman was the victim of an honor killing by her own father here in the US. Every woman in this country should be protecting each other from this. AMERICA WAKE UP!!
This is Noor Almaleki, the victim of an honor killing by her own father here in the US. Noor's father repeatedly ran her and a friend down after months of stalking the girl, who persisted in trying to break free from his control.

Iraqi-American Noor was murdered by her Iraqi-American as an "honor killing" America for being "too western" . MSM ignored. The Main Stream Media ignored the story! You can't tell me it wasn't important enough for the MSM to cover! SHAME ON YOU CBS,NBC,ABC,MSNBC, and CNN!!! YOU ARE YO BLAME FOR Covering up for Obama and pushing his ideals! What happened to reporting and keeping us abreast of the Wes and the President honest? YOU ARE TO BLAME!
Do You Want Sharia Law? It's a war on women from Obama and Muslims. This young woman was the victim of an honor killing by her own father here in the US. Every woman in this country should be protecting each other from this. So ridiculous that they bring them here and expect them to not become "westernized", then kill them for it?! They should have moved to a land where they like the laws. Poor Michelle if Sharia is achieved in the US, she will have to move or they will stone her to death!
Did you know that "In God We Trust" was added to America's paper currency in 1957 in response to the Soviet Union's anti-religious stance and the McCarthyist Communist Cold War Witch-hunt? Looks like Church and State are coming together....

Did you know that "In God We Trust" was added to America's paper currency in 1957 in response to the Soviet Union's anti-religious stance and the McCarthyist Communist Cold War Witch-hunt? - I don't think this belongs on our dollar or anything else in our country. Our country was founded on religious freedom, it seems like we're based on Christianity and this isn't religious freedom to me.
Fear leads to religion, & never the embrace of the teachings of peace. What began in the Civil War rapidly progressed during the Cold War. Panic creates piety. That's also, incidentally, when the Pledge of Allegiance was bastardized.
Did you know that "In God We Trust" was added to America's paper currency in 1957 in response to the Soviet Union's anti-religious stance and the McCarthyist Communist Cold War Witch-hunt? dollar bill
No, it was NOT always on our money. This is because when our money was originally made, we had this handy little thing called separation of church and state!
History Lesson. The words "in God we trust" were not added to the dollar bills until after 1954, out of fear.
Its all to keep the people in control! "In God We Trust" was not always on U.S currency. And the words, "Under God" were not always in the Pledge of Allegiance. Both phrases were added during Republican President Eisenhower's administration.
"God" was not always on U.S currency. nor was "God" always in the pledge of allegiance.JUST WAIT ,,, IT WILL SAY IN OBAMA DOLLARS
"IN GOOD WE TRUST" WAS NOT ON US MONEY UNTIL 1957!!! BE INFORMED!! demand it to be removed; seperation of church and state; religious freedom also means to be free of religion and all its many atrocities regardless of branding.
TRUTH...."God" was not always on U.S currency. nor was "God" always in the pledge of allegiance. Quite a shock when it happened.

TRUTH! Dammit. I have so much rage when I hear people talking bullshit about poverty being the poor person's fault. Poverty isn't a judgment of God against the person living in it, it's a judgment against those of us who see it and refuse to do a damn thing about it. THIS is the sin poverty reveals.
Truth be Told... It's when corporations and politicians turn their backs and ignore people and jobs for the sake of greed and profits over the needs of employees and the general welfare of this country.
Poverty is not a lack of character. It is a lack of money. A lack of opportunity. A lack of investment. It is when society turns its back and makes you invisible.
Truth be Told... Actually, it's more commonly when corporations and politicians turn their backs and ignore people and jobs for greed's sake.
The Truth ~ try to get a meal without money, get money without work, get work without a wardrobe, keep clothes without an address, need I go on?
Love this quote because poverty affects an entire country when society turns its back to citizens and don't care about their people.
“Poverty is not a lack of character. It is a lack of money. A lack of opportunity. A lack of investment. It is when society turns its back and makes you invisible.” “You did not get to where you are all by yourself. A successful person is a few bad things away from losing everything. If you are someone that made it, be proud of what you accomplished, but also realize everything and everyone that has helped you on your way to success. Do not call a homeless or poor person lazy

Teaching perspective to students can be difficult.However, Human Rights issues resonate with them. Try using this, Slavery perspective. I love this quote and I think it would be great to have as a unit theme quote. Its very important to make this distinction for students.
Yes functioning, intelligent, brilliant, culturally rich people were taken, and THEN broken AND THEN made into slaves....TRUTH
In Honor of Black History Month, I present Black History facts. It is right to celebrate the sacrifices and accomplishment of our ancestors and other Black Hero's that paved the way.
Black history should be a daily thing, not just one month a year where non-black people allow you to celebrate the history they have informed you about which is nothing more than slavery usually. Description from pinterest.com. I searched for this on bing.com/images

Type of Source: Picture from mollymakingmoney.wix.com Date of Origin: 1920's Women's suffrage became a large issue in the 1920's to 30's. Women had to fight for their rights to vote and even to be classified as 'persons' In 1916 Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta gave women the provincial vote, later in 1917 Ontario and BC followed. In May of 1918 all Canadian women were granted the right to vote, except Quebec. Anderson, Doris. "Status of women." The Canadian Encyclopedia. 2/07/06.

19th amendment: 3. It was not until 1848 that the movement for women’s rights launched on a national level with a convention in Seneca Falls, New York, organized by abolitionists Elizabeth Cady Stanton (1815-1902) and Lucretia Mott (1793-1880).
