    not upset .... it would just be better if you don’t exactly try to speak for Black Americans ... I know you are supporting the rid racism cause .. and that is a great thing ... but you can post things that may be offense to Black Americans and not be aware of it .. I am just saying

    Brad the problem is those who instigate the racial division and ignite the “fuels of hate” under the gist.

    Do you believe this?
    Extreme leftist views of what you’re saying, do.

    I am confused where I spoke for black people exactly. That is why I asked for a citation.

    Another strawman. You are trying to insert an argument or position I never made.

    To the original point. Andrew Jackson owned 150+ slaves. Andrew Jackson was responsible for the Indian Removal Act, one of the darkest chapters in American history. There were plenty of other objectively awful things he did as well.

    You can call it whatever you want. People need to learn about that stuff, not just the overly rosy positive achievements while fully ignoring those facts. You learn the good and the bad then form your own conclusions.

    Racial division?

    you literally said “whitewashing”!

    I dont think that’s a real thing.
    i’m sorry, it’s an ambiguous, vague, extremist term.

    my marriage is American History ... if you don’t live it .. you don’t really know anything aside from literature from a book ... living it is on a whole nother level ... you far more understand it .. you understand the Black American culture .. living that creates a more complete understanding of .. Why ... were... when and how

    Putting a black lady on a $20 bill ... I know black people who will not even except a $20 bill .. but when placing a Black American person on something ... know what you are doing .... just a piece of advise .... I know your intentions are good ... do you know why Black Americans would dislike a $20 bill ... I know it sounds petty ... but these things are not petty to Black Americans

    Whitewash is not even referring to race. It is a popular term.

    Metaphorically, whitewashing refers to suppression or "glossing over" (possibly a close parallel construction) of potentially damaging or unwelcome information.

    The fact that you have never heard of it is just incredulity.

    Feel free to use something like glossing over, ignoring, painting an overly positive picture if you would prefer.

    I appreciate that - and your sharing.

    It sounds like lots of such experiences would take a toll on anyone and serve as perpetual reminders of immutable characteristics. Yet I hope you and yours have far more on being treated as individuals/ by your character.

    An oreo should be a compliment, of course. And make sure you don't excuse your White boy language yourself as that is no different.

    She is on the bill because of her importance in American history, not because she is just black or a women. It is rather ironic that she is re-placing a prominent slave owner that also lead the trail of tears. You have someone who was fighting for equality, not fighting against it.

    Putting race everything! (regards apparent racial division US)

    It's complicated... There's a big debate on this.

    I'm optimistic future.

    its just funny how the system only works when it is putting you down elsewhere instead of building up sincerely instead of cancerous.

    True. I can't remember the last time I actually used physical cash, even before COVID.
    I might use it at a swap meet or something if someone doesn't take a credit card or digital payment.

    Andrew Jackson was a cruel ... inhuman mother fucker ... ... the bastard is important because we learned what not to be .. just as the rest of history ... although we can be mad at it ... even try to relive it ... we use history as guide of what not be .. we can never remove it .. if we chose to keep our minds in it and not learn from it and move forward ... we remain stagnant ..

    the system goes backwards ... when we make it go backwards ... there is times when a little rewind is necessary.... but to stop the picture and stay there is toxic for all of humanity.... it is as close as completely reliving history without actually being there .... once issues are under correction and results can be seen resolution ... it’s time to move forward and into the future ahead of us IMO

    our country has always been a nation of immigration.... there isn’t hardly one race of people in the country that haven’t done evil ... it’s when races start playing “ mine is bigger than yours””” that has always caused divide in America ... this is as old as America itself

    What actually seems to always happen when races play “ mines bigger than yours”” then all the races that aren’t the topic of them dispute start screaming out they are victims as well ....this is across the whole world and absolutely nothing new .. although we know some races have taken substantially more than others ... it’s all about resolution to conflict and moving forward ... stagnant escalates because focus becomes “mine is bigger than yours” and other races just up their convictions of being more victimized
