This video talks about the isuues minorities face when learning about history in school. I can relate to the issue that he addresses in this video. When I learn about US history I was discoraged by the negative portray of miniorities. Sometimes we forget that history is written by man it is his- story to tell and his opinions. There are biases and untold stories from different perspective. This is a issure that discorages minorites interest in history. They can never connect to the people and their ancestory are always protrayed in a negative image or the repeated token figure.
When I took history class I was very interested because all I learned about was Europeans and the slave trade. The same message being repeated with the same outcomes. I tried by best to be attentive and learn the information. When I took my finals for history class we was assigned to discuss what it means to be american and I took that opportunity to vent about issue that minorites have faced as the nationed improved and growth, the struggles they endured and look at the postivie aspect that miniorites overcome.
