“The antidote to feel-good history is not feel-bad history but honest and inclusive history.”
James W. Loewen, Lies My Teacher Told Me: Everything Your American History Textbook Got Wrong

“In sum, U.S. history is no more violent and oppressive than the history of England, Russia, Indonesia, or Burundi - but neither is it exceptionally less violent.”
James W. Loewen, Lies My Teacher Told Me: Everything Your American History Textbook Got Wrong

“Many African societies divide humans into three categories: those still alive on the earth, the sasha, and the zamani. The recently departed whose time on earth overlapped with people still here are the sasha, the living-dead. They are not wholly dead, for they still live in the memories of the living, who can call them to mind, create their likeness in art, and bring them to life in anecdote. When the last person to know an ancestor dies, that ancestor leaves the sasha for the zamani, the dead. As generalised ancestors, the zamani are not forgotten but revered. Many … can be recalled by name. But they are not the living-dead. There is a difference.”
James W Loewen, Lies My Teacher Told Me: Everything Your American History Textbook Got Wrong
