Like don't get me wrong this isn't the case everywhere, and I know that. But it's prominent enough that I'd rather not risk subjecting myself to that kind of shit. If I want to get heated at fascists, white supremacists, bigots, and the like, I have twitter for that -w-'

Honestly I think the only thing that saved my historyeducation was the IB program. When I learned that international history curriculum it was honestly amazing. We not only learned how to properly analyze historical sources, but we learned about America's CIA coups in South America, and U.S willful ignorance of the Rwandan just because they didn't think that people would be interested in Rwanda. We also learned properly what America did in Korea and Vietnam. Of course, international curriculum didn't focus on America, but IB absolutely destroyed my idea of American history. You don't walk into class for the third week in a row ready to learn the death count for a fourth CIA sponsored coup in south america, or watch footage of only the whites being evacuated from Rwanda as people beg to be taken with because they're literally about to be murdered, and walk out still believing all of the weird history textbook propaganda. I learned more in one year of IB history than 11 years of American history curriculum.

They made us physically replicate the conditions under which slaves were transported across the Atlantic - or try, with the twenty-eight or so of us there were. Sixth grade, around 1997, laying on the floor as close as we could get, scooting closer like cordons of wood, with the littlest in the class climbing on top while the teacher said something no one heard about how there would be eight layers of people and nobody moved for months. It caught some of their attention when she said that people just peed right where they were stuck, which horrified the class more than the following explanation that most of those thusly transported didn't even survive. Fascinatingly, while we discussed the actual slave trade and its horrors, we never stopped to look at how the wealth of the South (and honestly, the US as a whole) was built on the stolen labor of those who did survive the trip.

This is frightening. I didn't know MLK was such a liar. He claimed that it didn't cost the nation a dollar to expand voting rights, but the problem is that it did. The voting rights were not libertarian, they were the government spending money to subzidize infrastructure so that black people could vote. Then, guess what, MLK goes full-Marxist and advocates for wealth redistribution by the government. I had never seen this clip of him before. Fuck MLK, this was horrific.

Republicans like to argue that removing statues will eliminate our history. 1. I learned about WWII and Hitler's massacre of the Jews and never once did I see a statue commemorating Hitler or any of his command staff. 2. You know what does remove history, telling schools they will lose funding if they teach a curriculum based on slavery. Much like this piece says, I didn't even know what Juneteenth was until last year. Democrats today want to remove statues that glorify some of our nations most bigoted figures. Republicans actually want to eliminate history.

This is very much similar to the People's Republic of China not mentioning 1989 Tiananmen Square Protests in their History Text Books. Even the British do not mention their colonial history in their textbooks accurately, especially about the British Raj.

The amount of respect I have lost for your work after finding out you’re associated with the next for autism event is astronomical. If you can’t do the one google search it takes to listen to autistic voices on this matter, then I dont trust you to properly research your stories. Nothing about us, without us!
08mlascelles преди 9 дни
@T Lindsay thanks, I’ll do some more research when I get the time!
T Lindsay
T Lindsay преди 9 дни
OK so it has come to my attention through a few replies ( I left this comment on a lot of different videos) that people don't necessarily know where to find this information, and your right one google search without the right terms wont produce the information. Bear with me there is a lot of history here that not too many people know about so I'll try to give a brief run down. A really good source of information that explains it in easy sound bites are @beckspectrum and @paigelayle on TikTok who are hosting a counter fundraiser on the same date. @the.Autisticats on Instagram also have fantastic compilations of information and links to the evidence for all of the info below. Next for Autism is inextricably linked with Autism Speaks, an organization that the autistic community at large, myself included, considers to be a hate group, and their blue puzzle piece a hate symbol. Their primary mission is to research the cause and cure of Autism, in no uncertain terms, let me be clear - that is code for eugenics because finding the cause leads to terminating pregnancies solely on the basis of them resulting in an autistic child, and because Autism is a neurotype, not a disease, there is no cure. The only "cure" is to eliminate or restructure the entire brain, which is not possible to do to a human being and would result in their death. They have also engaged in harmful propaganda targeted at parents of newly diagnosed children, notoriously their "I am Autism" campaign in 2009, that engages in harmful stereotypes about autistics that absolutely dehumanize us and work to shape how our own families view us before we have any tools to advocate for ourselves. They also use these propaganda methods to push ABA therapy which is considered by many autistics to be abusive with some centers such as the JRC, which the The American Human Rights Organization and Disability Rights organization tried to have shut down for torture, heavily endorsed by Autism Speaks. Since the announcement of the livestream fundraiser both organizations have heavily edited their websites to the point of near gaslighting those of us who have been trying to call attention to the matter. I haven't even touched on the funding of these organizations, because so many other people have done it better, rest assured, nearly none of the money donated to these so called charities or fundraises actually goes to any autistics people or even their families who may be struggling to pay for therapies and treatments that may actually be improving their lives. Then there is also the matter of Mark Rober himself, the host of the event, and his video "The Truth About My Son", he engages in harmful stereotyping such as infantilizing disabled people with the narrative that we "show us [able-bodied] people the little things that are important] and by saying that disable people cannot succeed to his definition of success. He also did not remove footage of another persons autistic daughter even after asked repeatedly to do so, only blurred her face.

@08mlascelles Thank you so much for this genuine critique! It has come to my attention that not a lot of people know the terms or spaces to look for this information. I think his genuine compassion and outrage for other injustices is what shocked and appalled me so much, I really do want to believe if he knew the ramifications of this type of event he would join others like internet personalities Rhett and Link, who have withdrawn. I just wrote a bit of a mini essay for another comment so I'll hop back over and repost it here because I truly believe more people should know. These "charities" make their decisions that shape the public perceptions of our autistic identities, often with only one or two autistic board members that they actively work to silence while the rest of their boards heavily feature corporate interests. If nothing else that is one of the most important reasons it is important to listen to #actuallyaustic voices.
08mlascelles преди 15 дни
I truly don’t mean to be obtuse here, but after more than one google search, I didn’t see any evidence of Next for Autism being a bad organisation... You clearly feel very strongly about them, and I’d just like to know why? John Oliver seems like a very compassionate person who puts his money where his mouth is, and I doubt he would knowingly support a bad organisation. I genuinely just want to know why you hate the organisation so much! All the best either way mate.

As someone who went to catholic school their whole life, I can confidently say we were taught that the civil war was fought because of slavery. I didn’t even know about the state’s rights bill shit until watching the confederacy piece. Even as a 9 year old child I knew slavery was wrong and a terrible thing. Also that Harriet Tubman was an amazing woman who freed slaves because it was the right thing to do.

Just catching this story and it is so untrue. Sorry John Oliver you got it all wrong. No one human can learn every fact about a subject and all of society can not be held accountable. The human experience is based on a number of things (education, upbringing, experience, etc.) you just want to blame and judge. Your point is to get you ratings. Good luck I know you need to make a living.

If you don't teach histories truth how can we hope or expect the future to be better. There are some of us who actually did study history and I would argue that the American school system dose exactly what it was intended to. They teach us just enough to provide low level labour job's, to fear and never argue with authority, and when we are being unfairly attacked and harmed to suck it up and absolutely know that the authorities are not going to help but. Quite the contrary if you rase too much hell about it the authorities will turn on you. All of that were clear messages I received growing up in public school, I was taught all of that in as a bullied white kid in a small town America. I think if I had had to deal with endemic racism also I likely would have ended up in jail for violently venting my frustration, that almost happened as things were. So do I think the schools are failing, not unless you believe they are there to educate your children. What they are there for is to train, limit, and enculturate them making them better cogs in the machine.

My story about my ignorance of black history isn't American, but it does pertain to slavery. When I was in school, I was taught about the Atlantic slave trade, how despicable the conditions on the ships were, what life on the plantations was like, and about the Underground Railroad. We also got taught that the slave trade was abolished in the British Empire in 1807, and that in 1833 we abolished slavery entirely. Fast forward a few years. A documentary by noted black historian David Olusoga is on the TV. I'm not really watching it, but whatever I'm doing otherwise is not engaging enough to stop me from intermittently paying attention to it. I happen to see Olusoga start talking about reparations when slavery was abolished. Not reparations to the slaves. Reparations to the slaveOWNERS. We paid £20 million - 40% of HM Treasury's annual income at the time - to slaveowners to compensate them for the loss of the human beings they owned. A fundamental fact about the history of slavery in my country's empire, and a grievous injustice, and I only learnt about it because I happen to be occasionally glancing a documentary that was on only by chance. That's not right. I shouldn't have acquired that knowledge in such a haphazard way. It should have been taught to me and my classmates in school. Black people deserve better. Frankly, everybody deserves better. I feel lied to, and far dirtier for knowing that, consciously or unconsciously, the truth was kept from me than for knowing that our moment of enacting the bare minimum of humanity and morality was sullied by a hideous assessment of who was wronged by slavery and who deserved restitution. We need to do better.

It was the first time I had ever heard about it, and the more I learned about it the more I realized just how much history was just completely buried. I learned about Juneteenth around the same time, when I saw many Black twitter users that I followed talking about it in reference to trump's rally. I'd never once heard of it before then.

I wonder if Americans know that slavery wasn't localized to just their country. Throughout history slaves have been kept. As of 2018 India still had upwards of 8 million slaves. Other countries such as China, Pakistan, North Korea, Nigeria, Indonesia all still have slavery. As usual America only wants to focus on themselves, but surprise there is a whole big world outside your borders in which over the years every type of skin colour has been made a slave. We need to LEARN from our past, but not let it define us.

So I’m a history major, longtime fan of the show and a liberal, but I do have a tiny bit of a problem with saying that the states was not the cause of the civil war. TECHNICALLY, it was, because states were pissed that the federal government had been making laws regulating slavery, so they seceded. So it when right wing people say that states rights were a cause of the civil war, they are correct, however the specific rights that those states wanted to have is over slavery. So both are correct, and I do think schools should make that clear

Sadly, it's not just ignorance of their country's racist history, it's a large portion of society that have been instructed in race theory and who willfully ignore it anyway because it makes them uncomfortable. Look at the number of states currently pushing bills to ban critical race theory from being taught in schools, on the grounds that it makes white students "feel guilty." They're shifting that feeling of distress and despair back onto those who weren't born white or straight, while coddling their kids into believing that there's always been equal opportunity for all, but just white families were the ones smart enough and resourceful enough to work for it. So, I hope you don't have much sympathy for them any longer, because these are deliberate decisions being made to keep children from gaining empathy and perspective.

I find it bizarre that I have a better understanding of the civil war than most Americans from my Danish history class. That's not to say that Denmark gets this stuff right our history books tend to skip over Greenland and how we participated in the slave trade but it definitely shows that this is very much a political issue.
