Recently, The Root engaged in gross historical malpractice by giving voice to people who would benefit greatly from learning their own true history. They created a short video titled "No Country for Me." (And if this was independently produced, well, then, they do nothing to correct the record. So either way, they are at fault for not doing more to get down to "the root". Pun intended.)
This is (among many reasons) one of the reasons why I recorded William Cooper Nell's 1855 book The Colored Patriots of the American Revolution as an audiobook. There are many outlets out there, even outlets such as The Root who benefit greatly from lying about black history.
The only reason why The Root is able to get away with this is that for so long the progressives who control our school systems have engaged in a mass coverup of the truth of American history.
Shame on The Root for lying to its own readers and perpetuating this coverup! Shame on The Root for not pointing out that Britain brought slavery to this continent!
The Fourth of July, Independence Day, is worth of celebrating, by both whites and blacks!
