This fall, students in Texas are going to begin using history books that paint a very different picture for southern America. One of the primary alterations the revised books make is that the issue of slavery during the Civil War was only a “side issue.” The books also omit the history of the Ku Klux Klan and Jim Crow laws, effectively eliminating the history of racism from the American South.

America’s Lawyer, Mike Papantonio, appears on The Big Picture with Thom Hartmann to discuss this.
