European-American View of U.S. History Considered the Norm
As America becomes a country which no dominant racial group, the perspective of American history taught in the public schools becomes increasingly critical. Whites can no longer assume the white way of doing things in the United States is the correct or normative way. Whites can also no longer assume the version of history taught in the public schools is the version preferred by whites. I wonder how the descendants of slavery and genocide would interpret American history.
Some contend our country is divided today because some want us to turn back the clock and act like this is a previous era.
