Obama renames (reverts) Mount McKinley, our highest mountain.

    It's been obvious for a long time that Obama really dislikes the traditions of the USA. Especially white, conservative, Christian traditional America. It is also rumored that Michelle is a very racist woman toward whites. Obama's purpose was to divide America. And he has done that very well. Racial tension seems very high in the media/news right now.

    Lol he's a moron for not being cool with racist and slave owners just because it was "ok" back in the day? So in 1989 it was perfectly okay to hate gay people?

    I'm a moron for faulting men, who were most likey Christians, for owning slaves because it was "acceptable at the time"? Get the f*ck outta here. And yes I don't like homophobes from the 90s either.

    Definitely. Despises them.

    You can also see it the happenings he/they comment on. Like how it took days of complaining before he lowered the white house flag for the marines killed in Chatanooga but he'll comment on Trayvon and Michael Brown and Gates the Harvard professor.

    Bring back our girls but never a comment about Christians being driven out of the middle east.

    And Michelle always talks about racism in this country and her experience where instead she was the product of affirmative action; from the HS she attended to Princeton to that cushy, overpaid $300g hospital job she had

    I hear you. I just expect it now. Wait, there is more to come. Wait til he's in his last day in office. We haven't seen anything yet.

    the abolitionists who ended slavery in american and the british empire were christians. But hey, they are reaping the benefits of their ancestors and doing bare minimum with it.

    Acknowledging some of the founding fathers slave ownership and racism in school texts is not rewriting history it is teaching it so perhaps the same mistakes are not repeated.

    Muslims and blacks in Africa were also involved in the slave trade.

    Why not comment on slavery today? Who owns them, where, the color of their skin and the religions they most likely practice?

    Unless you were really just trying to make some anti-white political point that really has nothing to do with McKinley or your concern about slavery anyways.

    We've done that. Do you really think the civil rights movement hasn't been incorporated into our history books yet? That what you are saying has been hidden from students in public schools?

    And is all this sensitivity helping race relations or making them worse? I think we are more likely to end up with another Vester Flanagan who sees race in everything and views himself as a victim who needs to fight back.

    Yes all people who own slaves are equally awful. But I'd bet no country who owns slaves are founded on the principle that "all men are created equal". By the way I'm a white catholic guy from New York. So I dont hate white or religious people. I just hate racist hypocrites and people who refuse to acknowledge that our founding fathers were flawed men.

    I was just talking about how mentioning in school books how some of the founding fathers were racist and owned slaves is not rewriting history.

    Well it was inserted in a thread that has nothing to do with slavery or our founding fathers - McKinley was neither.

    And if that's how you feel, start a movement to get Washington off our dollar bills and our the names of elementary schools all over the country. It happens to not apply in this this case.

    I've been to Denali, the place is huge. I doubt there are many indigenous there who are upset about it's name because I doubt many can even see it. Alaska is a gigantic place.

    I picture the politically connected grievance leaders listing this as some bullshit grievance they have.

    Believe me, it's there. Do you have a kid in public school? They study the civil rights movement as much as any other subject.

    So can we agree that the evils of slavery wasn't something everyone was blind to as evidenced by these abolitionists?

    As far as the mountain being renamed, who cares? Every other thing in this country is named after a dead president, what's the big deal if a mountain gets renamed?

    unlike the decades of harmony before him???

    I grew up in various ethnically diverse and poor neighborhoods, and it was MUCH much worse in the 80's and 90's. Everything seems esacalated now because of social media and ubiquity of video on phones.

    Real life on the streets has never been safer. The instances where tension really is elevated is only due to more presence of media and cameras in "racially sensitive" situations, ie Ferguson.

    I wish you'd stop fearmongering in every post about how America is facing "dark times" and how Russia is dangerous, the economy is crashing, God is flooding the world, etc etc.

    The Leave it to Beaver world you long for is dead, and its never coming back. And the world is better for it. Obama can rename the entire state of Alaska Denali for all I care. We were at the brink of a true non-imaginary global catastrophe when the value of everyones mortgages turned to dust in 08. And you give no thank yous to Obama for averting disaster?

    The Civil Rights movement is covered but slavery as it relates to the founding fathers isn't. Basically slavery isn't important until the Civil War, then there's a chapter on Jim Crow and then nothing until the Civil Rights movement.

    I saw this on facebook early today. I guess it being named after a president wasn't good enough for him? I swear, 2016 can't come quickly enough
