Are you implying that the majority of slave owners in the United States were not in fact Whites? Furthermore, would you not argue that it has historical significance because the differences in economies and views on social liberties eventually led to the separation of the Union, a bloody civil war and finally the formation of the country as we know it today? It's taught for a reason. It's called context.

Facts are not hate-breeding and propaganda. Are we supposed to tell children that the Nazi's didn't hunt down the Jews... your own people, because it might condone hate-breeding and propaganda against Germans?
Remind everyone again why your family left the Soviet Union. Should we not teach that anymore out of fear that Russians might become targets of hate?
Get the **** out of there.
