McGrawHill Textbooks refer to African slaves as ‘workers’

  
Absolutely disgusting and their ‘response’ is almost as embarrassing as the sordid act itself. Referring to African slaves as ‘workers’ and referencing slavery in your ‘apology’ as ‘forced migration’ and ‘unpaid labor’ does not speak to the rape, castration, flogging, lynching, abduction, mutilation, degradation, destruction of heritage, communities, families and an entire diaspora still reeling from the modern day effects of slavery which led to jim crow which led to the new Jim Crow. I know I cannot expect better so I will not demand that you do better. I’m just glad people are willing to call you and your joke of a publication out. Shameful. Absolutely shameful. Rewriting history and wondering why modern society is falling apart. We aren’t being properly exposed to the lessons of the past and are therefore doomed to repeat them and all those traditionally marginalized will continue to fall by the wayside. My blood is BOILING. #McGrawHill #RewritingHistory #HomeSchoolingIsAMUST #StayWoke
