Some of the things I that were eliminated, deleted,rewritten, and disparaged are people such as Columbus,the Civil Right Movements, and In the article it is also mentioned the study of Darwin will be replaced with military advanced technology. Many names were dropped because they are considered no longer relevant to history. Can you imagine the uproar in the meeting room when it was suggested our POTUS not be included in the book? How could he not be included when his election was such a major accomplishment for America....heck the world. Wow.Wait, and to cause a row about the man's middle name is ludicrous. People, Obama didn't name himself. I even have a nephew named Jesus (pronounced as in my Savior) and his parents definitely don't belong in the Bible.
At one time the in the boardroom the discussion was to also eliminate Christmas from the list of important holidays. Crazy.
After writing my biographical version of America's History I can understand the need to leave out some people because there are just too many to applaud. But to leave out people and events because they are not deemed socially correct or don't further your politically agenda is ridiculous. I at least included a list of as many people as possible in the back of the book. In my mind history was written in more than Black & White and that is how it should be read.
A few examples of newscasts.
