Font is not times new roman, and is a color other than black. Government is spelled with a capital G mid-sentence.

C'mon OP, where are those critical thinking skills?

My people ( First Nations) suffered a couple hundred years of hell and the loss of their homeland..And we're barely worth a few paragraphs in a North American history lesson.

And I am supposed to be angry at the rumour of the Holocaust being dropped from History books..Sorry I am disgusted at what the Third Reich did to it's Jewish population but I am more angry with the lack of history concerning my people. But that would of course paint the British the French, the Dutch, and to a lesser extant the Spanish in a bad light..and we can't have that now can we?


The winners write history. It sucks. That much is known.

One is a case of conquest (a relatively dishonorable one at that) and the other is the case of an established country turning upon itself and those around it when it's government got too big and the wrong people came into power.

The latter is more relevant to modern times with the globalization of the economy generally making things more peaceful. Neither should be forgotten but the holocaust is a more unique event in the grand scheme of things.

First Nations mate, or preferably Nehinawewin properly speaking but I don' expect my people's conquerors to do us the justice of at least remembering the names of the nations they conquered. But don't you dare use that degrading and racist term " American Indian" to address my people with.

This.

In my home country of Mexico the indigenous people still suffer from racism and discrimination.
The sad thing is the the white and mixed raced Mexicans don't give a damn.

I'll get it right for the sake of the Hehinawewin peoples. The history is there, it has more to do with the ignorance of history in general and the utter lack of historical education in school though can't speak for European Countries. At least a few individuals do study that history if even only on there own. Historians in general see the European colonial powers as exploitative and abusive to out right genocidal against native population. Though that is of little consolation to the people who lost so much.

It's this thing they do, the whites that is. They always try to whitewash everything they do while pretending their victims of their genocidal polices were the evil ones. And when they aren't whitewashing they are just outright ignoring stuff.

Personally I feel as if the Europeans had stayed in Europe world history would be a little bit nicer. But nope they felt like making the world theirs one corpse at a time, one theft at a time , and one rape at a time. And to boot they claimed the name of God to do so.

Interesting I can not remember the holocaust being taught in my school history? they talked about civil wars
and maps etc. They discussed the trail of tears -Cherokee nation but never discussed Jewish holocaust? I guess
different teachers go about different lectures? anyway, I did enjoy reading the Diary of Anne Frank then saw the movie
gave me chills..

What they teach in schools is what the bare minimum idiot should absolutely know about history. Anything beyond that is your responsibility as an intelligent person.
