New College Course- Whitewashing History 101


UniversalImagesGroup / Contributor

The University of Colorado-Denver is offering a course to help survey the American political thought.

Instead of learning about actual history, the course will focus on such things as- anti-black racism, public feelings and settler collolnialism, while also featuring tarot cards and poems. The the cherry on top?  Every single white male in American history has also been omitted from the history.

“You can’t whitewash history. I’m not in favor of taking down Confederate stations just for giggles. If a town votes on that then that’s fine, but the mob can’t decide that. The idea that we shouldn’t teach about slavery in the United States? It happened!”
