Book publishing giant McGraw-Hill has been taken to task by a mother in Texas after her son alerted to her that the textbook “World Geography” in the section titled, “Patterns of Immigration,” the trans-Atlantic human trafficking of Africans was considered immigration and enslaved Africans were referred to as workers. Roni Dean-Burren took to YouTube to call out the book and McGraw-Hill agreed to make changes. However, the damage is already done and they will not make the changes to the textbook until the next edition. While it is great that the changes will be made but most history textbooks are filled with white supremacy lies and should not be used at all. What do you think?
