Most Americans were reared on whitewashed fairy tales about the United States’ history with race. I wish we didn’t have so much ugliness in our history to contend with, but we do.
It’s time for us to grow up as a country and face the whole truth.
Many white Americans seem to be waking up to this fact. But there is an element on the right committed to pretending that they are the ones being victimized by the changes sweeping the country. These changes challenge the one-sided narrative of America crafted by a select group of white men.
The most recent freakout on the right is in response to the demolition of statues and petitions to rename buildings that represent various white supremacist leaders of yore from Christopher Columbus to Robert E. Lee.
