Good question. I hope it is not as white washed as the mess they teach us in the US.

no...specific experiences, such as racism and such...
meaning....you share the same history (day to day experiences, as a nation --9/11 etc), but individually as a different race, the experiences are different (racism, etc)

...@ Carolina --nope, no whitewashing here. We are fully aware for example that Colombus and his shiploads of bandits were thieving, murdering, raping, diseased sons of bitches (not in thsoe specific words of course lol). But, no glorification here.

Wow that's so deep. That's a good point considering how long we've been sharing a country with them.

our people here were forced to let go of their heritages. Most of us have no understanding of our roots. The white influence was stronger here Ouch
