If we do not face and address racism, bias, and mistakes of our past, we are creating a generation of students who will not know reality. I cannot ignore facts from the past as a history teacher. If our politicians can look in the mirror and think ignoring the past is beneficial in respect to our country and citizens, then I encourage them to have a sit-down conversation with every teacher they represent in their state. History is not moving backward; it is moving forward.
