The teacher at a college is being blasted for having history incorrect.
The quiz had multiple choices and the black student was stunned to have been corrected. Two of the choices were:
“C”: “Black family bonds were destroyed by the abuses of slave owners, who regularly sold off family members to other slave owners.”
“D”: “Most slave families were headed by two parents.”
Student picked “C” (wrong). Most slave families were headed by two parents.
Just off the top of my head, “D” seems correct, makes sense that a slave owner would find that it’s more efficient and overall works out better for slave families to have both parents around.
MAKES SENSE LIKE OMG SO TOTALLY MAKES SENSE.
But NOoooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo, the Black Entertainment Television online site has to write up and perpetuate the myths of “C”.
And Google of course has to perpetuate it as well (notice the end of the Uniform Resource Locator).
So there was a civil Twitter war that President Lincoln started and the girl who was graded “incorrectly” (correctly) says “she hopes that she raised awareness about whitewashing history.”
OMG whitewashing history? Is this what they are promoting? That is sickening.
People who believe that crap are slaves to their media masters!
While slavery was institutionally recognized by most societies, it has now been outlawed in all recognized countries, the last being Mauritania in 2007. Nevertheless, there are still more slaves today than at any previous point in history: an estimated 45 million people remain enslaved worldwide. The most common form of the slave trade is now commonly referred to as human trafficking. Chattel slavery is also still practiced by the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant. In other areas, slavery (or unfree labour) continues through practices such as debt bondage, serfdom, domestic servants kept in captivity, certain adoptions in which children are forced to work as slaves, child soldiers, and forced marriage.
Debt bondage is especially prevalent in the United States.
