Education

Talked to a bright young black man today, and I mentioned that the Revolutionary War had lots of great people to learn about. He responded, "Yeah, they were all slaveholders, I'm not going to look."

I'm dismayed. How did his teachers miss Agrippa Hull? Casimir Pulaski? Crispus Attucks?
Do you think that it's the teacher's fault? Or the students' fault?
