For 11 years, Professor Duke Pesta gave quizzes to his students at the beginning of the school year to test their knowledge on basic facts about American history and Western culture.
The most surprising result from his 11-year experiment? Students’ overwhelming belief that slavery began in the United States and was almost exclusively an American phenomenon, he said.
Is this so surprisig? Hstory is a subject seemlyu npt taught any more or hstory in the past s viewed to be unimportant.
With a black president the schools ran to pushing the narrative that somehow whites here in this country were to blame for their misery. The fact that slavery flourished long before with blacks selling other blacks and some nations still doing it never enters the skulls of those indoctrinated by the left.
