The Horrifying American Roots Of Eugenics

Throughout my Education years, I’ve always wondered if the schools that I attended, will I really learn everything about America history? I feel like the school system has been hiding so much that they think we as students should not know about. I even noticed that some teachers or even most teachers do not like to teach the curriculum that was given. I remember reading my history textbook about the Holocaust and my teacher would get mad at the text because not all the information that happened in the past were not given. My teacher even suggested that there is more things that were left untold by the government. After school, I would go use my mother laptop and search in more information on the textbook and about the Holocaust, there were …show more content…

I believe so, but it is my job and also my children job to at least stop this mental impression on being the perfect human race and accept the beauty of your own skin tone, eyes and hair and overall loving yourself as you
