Children should not be exposed to the notion that there were happy slaves and that slavery was anything except an atrocity.

Slaves did what they had to do, nothing to be proud of - it was forced labour. Stop subtly teaching our children that they enjoyed what they did!

I don't like the promotion of false history especially one about happy slaves. There was nothing happy about being a slave

It's time to clean up any and all distorted 'historical' story that in any way paints a 'lovely' picture of slavery!!

As a teacher I must demand that history not be distorted to reinforce inequality.

I agree that in 2016 we should not be marketing slavery in good flavor in any way to any children especially black children..
