    However you would be surprised (or perhaps not) at the number of people who have never heard of Zinn, and think that the Disney versions of Pocahontas is the end of the discussion in this matter.

    If I were to quote Zinn, I would have to put a "trigger" warning on these passages, same with Horowitz. That's not discussed in history class, especially not in primary school, but I never read it in College either. And I did pay attention.

    More people need to know this aspect of our history and many other aspects as well.
