Black history should include a discussion of the black men who fought with George Washington. There were also black men who fought against Washington with the Tories. I would guess that history won't be discussed. That history does not gift you with $13.6 million in one fell swoop. I watched a presentation on documentary channel called "what do black men think". The synopsis was the their problems were caused by government largesse and black leaders perpetuating victim hood.

You are correct. Schools do not focus on that tidbit of history.
