What stood out for me today was how "Thomas Jefferson" proclaimed himself as part of the American society and how he brought up injustices in African Americans, not that it's not important for America's history to bring that up, but he never told us about any Native American injustices. For example, the Trail of Tears where 3/4's of the Cherokee people died while walking that icy, deadly path. How "Americans" treated them as savages, which is rather ironic since the Native American people welcomed them here and have never instigated first. People today who hail themselves as Americans are only citizens of America, not truly American. The Native Americans today live in poverty and strife.
