Yeah...the "westward expansion" is taught from the viewpoint of the "liberal left". Puhleez.

How many classrooms teach that it was the systematic extermination of several civilizations. (Yes, different tribes can be viewed as different civilizations)

Hell, I nearly got kicked out of grade school back in the early 70's for arguing that they weren't teaching history, but, propaganda.

I agree with the idea of "historical context, not a racial one". However, I disagree with the point that "I feel it fuels negativity and hatred towards certain groups to this day" That is a cop-out. Those groups don't need any fueling.
