(MENAFN) According to an African American journalist and political analyst, the racist US system aims to cover up the past crimes done by the country's dominant interests.
To avoid offending school kids, several US instructors proposed using "involuntary relocation" instead of slavery.
The Texas State Board of Education rejected a workgroup of educators' request to rethink referring to slavery as "involuntary relocation" in second-grade classes on Thursday.
The task was assigned to a workgroup of nine educators, including teachers, social studies specialists, instructional coaches, and a professor from the University of Texas Rio Grande Valley. It was one of many such groups advising the state education board a year after lawmakers passed a law prohibiting teachers from discussing topics that make students "feel discomfort."
Abayomi Azikiwe stated amid an interview with Press TV on Saturday, “This denial by the Texas State Board of Education is quite hypocritical. There are officials in Texas for political reasons have denied the actual history of the United States as it relates to African people. The racist system wants to cover up the historical crimes committed by ruling interests.”
