The American people should be quite upset about what the Texas State School Board recently approved for its Social Studies Program. This new approval will affect their history books and have a great affect on how and what is taught. Unfortunately this ramification could extend way beyond Texas and have an effect on most of the country. What was just passed is a bigoted way to keep the truth from being exposed about what happened to the African-America People of Color and the slave trade of which the United States participated.

The real history and the ugly truth of what happened to the African-American People of Color, the slave trade and slavery in this country has never been told in the history books of this country, and the African-American People of Color have never been given a formal apology by this government, which is something that I point out in my book "Born In The Wrong Country."

Texas now wants to use the Bible and Biblical teaching in the school system; I understand this because the Bibles that are in circulation now and used in this country were written by the White man. Look at the King James Version of The Holy Bible, and ask yourself what does that infer? When something is named after someone like King James, one must not be naive to think that he didn't have any say about what went into The Holy Bible. King James was a White man with immense power as most kings had, and what he said was law. One would have to be completely naive to think that just because his name was on the Holy Bible, that he was a devout Christian who was filled with love and respect of all people of the world. Let's face facts and look at the various slave issues of the Bible.

One might say that writing has become my fondest passion; it is a love that always gives, and one that I feel comfortable sharing. I write because writing has become the voice in which I can speak to many people, share experiences, stories and (more...)
