I was thinking about Holocaust and moon landing deniers and I was wondering if in the future people in the USA will deny that black people were ever made to sit in the back of the bus, barred from living in certain neighborhoods, required to go to separate schools, drink from separate water fountains, etc.
“No, that never happened. That’s propaganda made up to make white people look bad.” “There were no colored schools, churches, neighborhoods, water fountains. If there were, it’s because black people CHOSE to live, go to school, drink there.”
There’s documentary evidence of the Holocaust, including people who were there (now mostly very old), books written, aerial photographs, the testimony of the soldiers who liberated the camps–but some say it’s all lies. Same with the moon landing.
I can see the history of Africans who became African-Americans undergoing similar revision in the future as those people who were adults in the 50s and 60s die off.
I don’t have much hope for the future of our country.
