Black History Month 2011: 'Are Whites Entitled To Write Black History?' (VIDEO)

"when wites write history they tend to leave out the true history of everyone they screwed "

No. When SOME whites write history they do that. To generalize that ALL whites do that is racism. There are plenty of white authors who do tremendous jobs of correcting past history and telling the story of indigenous people and people of color. Howard Zinn's People's History of the US is a classic, other authors also include Noam Chomsky, Michael Parenti, and Gore Vidal, all white men.

Also, if you look at the people who work for the Hoover Institute or other right wing think tanks I'm sure you will find people, Condoleeza Rice for example, who write the kind of history you attribute only to white people.
