Erasing America : Losing Our Future by Destroying Our Past
by James S. Robbins and John McLain




Overview -

In towns and cities across America, a tidal wave of social activism is systematically erasing pieces of American history that don't meet today's standards of political correctness. At Yale, residential Calhoun College is being renamed after students complained about the pro-slavery sentiments of John C. Calhoun, the South Carolinian who served as vice president from 1825 to 1832. In Virginia, a school district is considering banning literary classics To Kill a Mockingbird and The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn because parents complained about the racial slurs in the books. In California, a San Francisco school district wants to rename George Washington High School because our first president owned slaves. In Arkansas, a monument engraved with the Ten Commandments was smashed to smithereens by a protester in a Dodge Dart. And in parks and squares across the South, statues of confederate generals and soldiers are disappearing.

In Erasing America, journalist James C. Robbins visits towns where the struggle over America's history is taking place and investigates the current cultural effects of the widespread Orwellian pressure to erase America's ancestors and history.
