Wow.. I didn’t know that
File under : things I wasn’t taught in school
Reblog the hell out of this everyone.
Actually one of my teacher in “primary” school told us that.
This is a lie.
Yeah, definitely is a lie. Plus, the French were involved in slavery just like the English/Americans so why would they pay homage to the slaves? They didn’t give a fun about black people. You know what it took for the black slaves in Haiti to get their freedom from the French? Full on war. France was not trying to give up that system.
France might not have tried to give up, just as guilty as other European countries..But hey, as long as they acknowledged their mistakes and tried to make up for it, that doesn’t have to mean immediately that it’s a lie..Goshh if Americans researched and studied other people’s history other than their own instead of confidently trying to judge the shit out of the world..
