You know how schools have always taught American HIstory from the
European view. Well this has outraged Black Parents. So the Black Parents
asked them to offer African American History as a REquirement.
They asked for this 40 years ago and with Philadelphia celebrating
Black History 365 days a year. I’m surprised it took this long
but African American History is NOW a requirement.
This makes Philadelphia stand out as the first major city
to make Black History a REQUIREMENT for GRADUATION.
The course will be about how Black Africans became
Americans through the colonial period, achieving freedom, the
Civil war and afterward, economic development for Blacks
in the last century, civil rights movement and black
ALso, it will focus on Frederick Douglass, IDa B. Wells,
Dr. Charles Dreaw.
THe Philadelphia School district has a total of 185,000 students
and two thirds of them are OUR Black people. The School REform
Commission is the panel of people who sets the rules which
has about 2 Black people and 3 white folks. So now the course
of Black History is mandatory in all 53 high schools, not JUST
an ELECTIVE. IT’s required. ANd that’s how it should be, everything
our Black people did paved the way for college and more and more
riches. WIthout Black people, there would NOT be paper to make
ANd Like the withering IDIOTS there are, Mr PErzel said
that Black History will divide not unite the people. But remember
in my other article, it was integration that got Black Businesses
in the mess it was in. ANd even still after all OUR BLACK people
been through ofcourse its supposed to be required, after
all OUR BLACK people have done it’s supposed to be required.
ANd plus the school district is set in its decision and not
going to go back on it because of one BLATANT IDIOTS. THere are great people behind a GREAT
idea but also a few idiots on the sidelines
just waiting like opening up their mouths.
NO ONE should say that Black history should
not be required. IF there are white people
who want to skip the class and not
graduate oh well because Black History
is required in Philadelphia to graduate!
There were other idiots to leave their stupid remarks
but it REMAINS that BLACK HISTORY is REQUIRED
for high schools in PHILADELPHIA.
Philadelphia is leading and let the other states follow
in the same direction. Supporters were dismayed by the
folks who said it should NOT be required. Like they said,
the white man and his sidekick
white girl has robbed US BLACK people of our KNOWLEDGE of OUR
BLACK history. Every time I research BLACK ACHEIVEMENTS we get
our stuff back.
THe course will talk about the origins of civilization in Africa
and early developments of AFrican History. I know it must hurt
white folks to hear about what they DID NOT do, So what.
The truth is BLACK PEOPLE created numerous things.
Patricia Thomas Whyatt taught Black History to an ALL BLACK
school of 900 students and cleared up misconceptions about
OUR BLACK RACE.
