What alternative universe does the OP live in. It is certainly not the one those with common sense occupy. I just cannot get with the "white children are being oppressed by their Black and Muslim classmates theme". White and oppressed don't even belong in the same sentence, as it relates to the U.S. racial dynamics, and everyone knows this.

Why dont we celebrate the fact that ancestors of white children in America shed blood to officially end slavery


???? Are you one of those history class-deficient people who thinks the civil war was actually about slavery?

Well it wasn't in Lincolns plans originally.

Quote:
“I am not, nor ever have been in favor of bringing about in any way the social and political equality of the white and black races.

I am not nor ever have been in favor of making voters or jurors of Negroes, nor qualifying them to hold office, nor to intermarry with white people.

And I will say in addition to this that there is a physical difference between the white and black races which I believe will ever forbid the two races living together on terms of social and political equality. …
