“No other ethnic group has been a slave on American soil. That is one thing that other immigrant groups haven’t had to face.” Can we make children learn this in school like the pledge of allegiance?

Amazing footage of a great man who died too soon. I’ve never understood why someone would discriminated towards another person because of their skin color, religion, sexual orientation, etc! I get that you may disagree with someone’s opinion or have a problem w/their character.
