Susan Rice in 1986 book: Make
white students learn black history

Daily Caller, by Charles C. Johnson

Original Article

Posted By:NorthernDog, 11/29/2012 9:40:47 AM

In a 1986 book by U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice, the future diplomat argued for the aggressive inclusion of a black history curriculum in American schools, claiming that its omission had “crippling effects” by “providing a child with no more than … a white interpretation of reality.” The 86-page book, “A History Deferred,” served as a guide for secondary and elementary school teachers wanting to teach “Black Studies,” and was published by the Black Student Fund, an advocacy group where Rice had an internship. “Susan’s interest in the study of Black history

History is history. Why try to divvy it up between black and white?

I love it when a rich, Stanford educated yuppy tells me that we ought to teach black kids about "black history". Teaching them what the word demagogue means would be a good start. Teach them that for all the nice speeches the legacy of Martin King is burnt cities, intractable poverty, murder and an unthinkably high number of black men in prison. In return the black community has a few idiots like Rice making lots of money and creeps like Jay-Z making even more. Congratulations.

She should be concerned about teaching black students how to speak English and learn to read. Then perhaps some math could be added to the mix.

I agree, let´s teach them black history, not forgetting to include the African tribes that sold their own into slavery. Lets not omit that it was the GOP and Abraham Lincoln, not a democrat that freed the slaves. Lets also teach the history of the KKK and which party that sick clan came from. Let´s also not forget the ´64 vote on civil rights, with several democrats voting against. Lets also include the whole Rodney King verdict response that set off the Amish....oops I got that one wrong.

OK have it your way. At least start at the beginning, though. (below paraphrased from Sowell):
1. Black tribe in African interior captures its neighboring tribe members.
2. Captives sold to Muslim (themselves black) slave traders.
3. Slaves marched to port city, Muslim traders sell captives to European traders.
4. With a nod to the late Paul H, we now know the *rest* of the story.

As a retired history teacher, I assure you, no one can make anyone learn history...it has to be soaked in hrough the skin to learn it...regurgitating answers on a test is what happens at our schools anymore...when there is not a good interface between what the Suits want and what the kids yearn to own and know about themselves and their heritage, stupidity ensures in the teaching of such subjects.
Political correctness creeps in and agendas get inserted into the books and lesson plans.
I locked my door and taught the truth.
The Dutch and English did not go about Africa, snaring the poor innocent natives for enslavement.
Their black brethren rounded them up and delivered them bound one to another, to the slave traders, so in its advent in America, "Black History Month" started with the little Dutch guys whittling on their new shoes at the dock,in west Africa, while the brutish neighboring tribes rounded up the ones they knew they could catch and sell.
Truth is rarely pretty
but if you follow the money, it is always there.
Dr.Rice allowed the US State Department to turn a totally blind eye to the machetes and rapes in Rwanda in ´94, that lapse is on her....and history proves it.

I am getting old (61) and I lived in the Bad Old Days but I ALWAYS knew about Black history.

I still remember when an Angry Black Chick asked me "did you know there really is a place called Timbuktu" But before she could launch into a tirade about how Black history has been neglected. I said, "Yeah, it´s an ancient city in Mali and was a center of trade"

She wilted. See, this old white chick likes to read and learn things. Something that the perpetually aggrieved need to do more of.

Are blacks a separate nation like China or England or a separate continent like Europe? Isn´t that how history is usually taught? American blacks are part of American history. I´m sorry for Ms. Rice that American was founded by all white men, but that is the truth. Liberals can´t handle the truth.

Blacks have made history by committing more crime than anyone else throughout the world. I am sick and tire of the constant black this,black that. Get over yourselves, learn to speak english, man up and raise your ghetto brood, and start appreciating white America for constantly providing such an ungrateful tribe of in your face racists!

A white entepretation of reality? Is there a different, totally different black enterpretation??? Ohh the sarcastic things I could say, but I wont. The truth is there is reality in our universe and our own individual enterpretations of it. The twist the enterpretaions of reality around racism, itself a human invention, is itself an extreme form of racism.

Mrs Rise is not interested in equality or justice for all. She has been raised in a world that justifies and perpetuates racial hatred based upon the premise of revenge against past misdeads both real and imagined against all white people, whether they are decendents of those who may have mistreated their ancestors or not.

That people is just another form of institutionalised racism. Not one bit better that causasion fools in white costume burning crosses. Nay even worse as it is coddled and prepetuated by popular culture and our so called news media.

FOR SHAME!

Hey, great idea- so long as the kids lear the full truth of black history, like the initation of the slave trade, selling their black brothers and sisters for cash, also the savagery, the brutal mass ignorance (even before slavery), the slavish ritualism to black devil worship- the list is long and disgusting, but, certainly would be interesting to any student of real history- not the fantasy pap delivered by libtard fiction writers standing in place now of American history!

After the American black slaves were freed, my maternal great grandmother was sold, by her father to cover his gambling debts, at eight years old, to be the "apprentice" to a seamstress until she turned eighteen.

This was in the 1880´s, before electric lights or treadle sewing machines were common. Ailcy Anna spent the bulk of her childhood sitting in a corner, making seams of tiny stitches all day long, and being beaten if the stitches were too long, or crooked.

Throughout the early years of this country there were "indentured servants" some because of debt payment, but many more were "working off the cost of passage"...the ticket for the ship that brought them to this country. Most of them endured living and working conditions much worse than slaves did.

I have no patience with blacks who walk up to me, carrying a chip on their shoulder the size of a railroad tie, screaming, "You owe me ´cause you´re white and I´m black!"

The attitude of Susan Rice...and by extension, Barack 0bama...is not very different for the above quote.

I have paid my share more recently than they have, and if Barack´s ancestors were involved with slavery at all, it was on the "capture and enslave" side, not the beaten and starved side.

Listen up Susan, many of us know more about black history than any liberal professor teaching blacks that those poor slaves came here and whites took advantage of them. Many of them never touched American soil when they left Africa.
We were around when MLK was a whore monger and his wife laughed all the way to the bank.
BTW How many times have you gone to the home country, sent money, or adopted an African child ?
Perhaps it´s blacks that should learn black history.

Chef says preparing healthy Passover
seder to suit Michelle Obama

Chef Vered Guttman braved the challenge of preparing a White House Passover seder in line with Michelle Obama´s healthy eating guidelines and lived to tell her story. "The traditional seder fare is hardly fresh or healthy," Guttman wrote in a post-dinner review about incorporating vegetable sides to "offset some of the Jewish carbs" like gefilte fish and matzo ball soup. And her hard work to keep it healthy paid off, as both the President and First Lady praised her quinoa-kale salad and even inquired after the recipe. Guttman, a D.C. based caterer, worked with White House executive chef Cris Comerford

A new poll shows former secretary of state Hillary Clinton´s (D) numbers hitting their lowest point in six years. Meanwhile, it finds that the Republican Party is experiencing something of a renaissance. The Fox News poll, from Democratic pollster Anderson Robbins Research and GOP pollster Shaw & Company, shows Clinton´s favorable rating dropping to 49 percent, compared to 45 percent unfavorable. The last time her numbers were in that ballpark was during the 2008 Democratic presidential primary race. After she ended her campaign, her favorable/unfavorable split was 47/46. Other polls have shown Clinton´s numbers --

DENVER | Colorado Democrats abandoned their own divisive abortion proposal Wednesday, axing the bill after one lawmaker expressed indecision and it became clear they might not have the votes to pass it in a chamber where every vote matters. Democrats used a legislative maneuver to shelve a bill that would have banned any state regulation of reproductive decisions such as abortion and contraception. It had been scheduled for a vote Wednesday evening in the Senate, where the party holds a slim one-seat majority. The move came after Sen.

Pro-Russian activists carrying automatic weapons seized government buildings in Slaviansk and set up barricades on the outskirts of the city. Official buildings in several neighboring towns were also attacked. The developments have increased concerns of a possible "gas war" that could disrupt energy supplies across the continent.

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?

First, the good news: We are close enough to the end of the Obama presidency for his crowd to talk about a presidential library. Now, the bad news: Obama´s retirement is still 1,008 days distant. Plenty of time though to round up the dough to build it somewhere. Figure they need Solyndra-style money, at least $500 million. The last two presidents – Bill Clinton and George W. Bush -- built their legacy edifices totally with private money. [Snip] However, Obama supporters have a different take. They think taxpayers should put up $100 million in public money for Obama´s library.

Less than 16 hours after Chelsea Clinton announced she was pregnant, a lot of major news outlets started staring into the crystal ball of Chelsea’s womb, wondering what this currently floating zygotic multicellular being meant for the prospects of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign, which is also a floating, zygotic, multicellular being. Their answer: The immaculately conceived Clinton child could mean everything. And no, it’s not just the fact that having a grandchild could be personally fulfilling to Hillary and Bill (mazel tov, by the way), or that a cute baby would be a sweet cherry on top of Hillary’s already

Glen Campbell has been suffering from Alzheimer´s for over three years, but the Grammy-winning singer, 78, has recently moved into a facility, PEOPLE has confirmed. "He was moved to an Alzhemier´s facility last week," says a family friend. "I´m not sure what the permanent plan is for him yet. We´ll know more next week." The "Rhinestone Cowboy" crooner first opened up about having Alzheimer´s to PEOPLE in an exclusive 2011 interview. Campbell and his fourth wife, Kim Woolen, decided to go public with the news because Campbell hoped to embark on a final farewell live tour. The couple wanted his

The first step is admitting… It was a simple question to someone accustomed to much tougher ones: What was her proudest achievement as secretary of state? But for a moment, Hillary Rodham Clinton, appearing recently before a friendly audience at a women’s forum in Manhattan, seemed flustered.(Snip)So…no definitive successes and some clear-cut failures. And that’s the generous New York Times assessment. The Democrat fantasy story about Mrs. Clinton paints her as strong and accomplished on her own. In reality, this is a woman who is professionally defined almost entirely by two men in her life, both of whom happen to have

Remember when Lois Lerner, in answering a planted question at an American Bar Association conference, admitted the IRS had targeted conservative groups but tried to pass it off as the work of rogue agents — “our line people in Cincinnati”? Today we know there were indeed federal agents involved. But they weren’t rogue, and they weren’t confined to IRS workers in Cincinnati. Thanks to a Freedom of Information request by Judicial Watch, we now have an e-mail Lerner sent to colleagues noting the Department of Justice was looking into criminal prosecutions of these tax-exempt groups. We know something else, too. These investigations
