Whatcha Reading?? Lies My Teacher Told Me

on September 14, 2012

I was going back and forth trying to figure out whether I wanted to promote things on here or not. I’ve decided I will. Now when I made this decision I crossed some things off the list immediately. I’m not going to get into discussing movies and TV shows, I’m not a critic. Or music for that matter because I don’t listen to the radio on a regular basis anymore, I have playlists to get me through the day. What I will pimp out on my page, besides blog posts I love, are books. I mentioned before that I’m a HUGE BOOKWORM. So every once in a while I will spread the love for books that really catch my attention.  Soooo…..first book to be pimped out….

Lies My Teacher Told Me by James W. Loewen

Now I’m not someone who scours the NY Times Bestseller list looking for new books to buy. I like to wander around the bookstore from section to section looking at titles. Which would explain my completely random collection of books. So when I saw this one I stopped, had that confused head tilt dogs do, and crept over to the book and started flipping through it. My, my how interesting. Needless to say it came home with me. This book is all about challenging the conventional way history textbooks discuss life before we were born. James Loewen makes a great point about how the majority of textbooks whitewash history and make heroes out of people who probably shouldn’t be. I’m only into the second chapter but this book makes you sit there and go “Why in the hell didn’t I ever think that was odd” or “Now that you mention it, what‘s up with that??” Here’s an example: In a lot of history textbooks Woodrow Wilson has always been credited with championing women’s right to vote. <–Now that is pure bullshit. Wilson was NOT a fan of giving women the right to vote and he was a huge, HUGE RACIST. He used to make “darky” jokes during cabinet meetings. Another good point Loewen brings up is the fact that nobody talks about Helen Keller’s life after Anne Sullivan taught her Braille. Well here’s an insight for you, Helen Keller was a socialist and supported Communism. Betcha right now you’re opening Google and searching for that info..go right ahead. Then find this book and get yourself a copy because there is much more learning ahead beyond what I’ve shared.
