Exclamation Point

What the hell… do these “history teachers” …teach?

 

“Texas officials: Schools should teach that slavery was ‘side issue’ to Civil War,” says a Washington Post headline.

 

“Side issue?”

 

In the midterm elections, several Republicans sought to stifle the Black and Native American vote.

 

A few weeks ago, we witnessed… the worst… anti-Jewish… massacre in U.S. history.

 

Footnote one might overlook, right?

 

How about an ant… to crush?

 

No comfort to my recurring nightmare: at an Auschwitz gas chamber… Zyklon B…

exterminating me-a Jew, by Hitler’s definition.

 

No side issue to me.

 

Human history plagued by genocides, massacres, dispossessions, slavery, lynching,

segregation…

 

No side issue…it’s an exclamation point!
