Just my personal story and my feelings on the Canadian school system and how it deals with the topics of race/racism, slavery, and European colonization in the Public School curriculum. Today, I am a 24 year old male, so my story is very relevant in that this is an accurate portrayal of how things are in near and recent times. I was educated from 1995-2011 in Canada. I was originally born in Europe, but moved to Canada in 1995, at that time I would have been 7 or 8, in Grade 2. I was educated in English in Public School in Montreal (though the law has since changed and now immigrant children are normally educated in French in Quebec), and then in 1999, at the age of 11 or so, I moved with my family to Toronto which is the largest city and epicenter of Canada, where I graduated from the Public School System and eventually obtained a University Bachelor's Degree in Business. So, Ive spent essentially my entire childhood, adolescence, and young adult years in the Canadian education system, and I know the Canadian curriculum very well. I remember in about grade 3, I would have only been about 8 or 9 years old, I remember learning that White Men from Europe came over to Canada and stole the land from Natives. I also learned that White Men killed, raped, and cheated the Natives. I precisely remember feeling embarrassed and guilty at that age, because I was white, and I was being shown all of these evil things that white people had done. This kind of lessons were continuously thrown at me, year after year, teachers would instruct classes of 30 students about how evil the White Man was. Topics covered also included how even more evil white Men in the USA enslaved all blacks and also killed, raped, and cheated these blacks. As a white boy who was only about 9, 10, or 11 years old, these type of lessons made me feel embarrassed, guilty, and ashamed. I would say for about 10 years I was constantly reminded in Social Studies, and History classes of how evil white men were. Yet, in these lessons, never once was any sort of logical counter-position brought up. Say for example, the fact that Natives also killed, raped, and pillaged each other before the white Man even came, on a level that was comparable to the White Man. Or the fact that whites bought black slaves *from other blacks* who enslaved them. Or the fact that Jews disproportionately owned black slaves compared to whites. Or perhaps the fact that millions of whites were also enslaved by Blacks in Europe (look at the Barbary slaves on google). None of these extremely relevant counter positions were ever remotely discussed in the classroom. This type of biased, slanted curriculum in the Public School system I would say is ABUSIVE to white kids. I know because I went through it, and I felt it first hand. I would honestly consider it abusive on some level and these topics shouldn't be discussed to young children until they are older. It makes you feel embarrassed, guilty, and ashamed for being white. That's not OK and quite frankly I consider it abusive on some level. This is the beginning of white guilt complex for many whites in Canada. Kids who are 8 or 9 years old don't deserve to be brainwashed, ridiculed, and taught in this manner. This is extremely biased teaching and at a young age like 8 or 9, many children are not intelligent enough to question what they are learning and viewing. Thank God, in my teens I started feeling extremely proud of myself, my race, and I started to question the obviously biased agenda that was being thrown at me since I was 8 years old. By the time I was about 15 or so, I was completely set in my ways and proud of my heritage. Unfortunately, I think I am a vast minority and the majority of whites just eat this propaganda up. This is exactly what creates white guilt and "liberal culture" in Canada, this type of brainwashing and propogation to kids at such a young age. In my opinion, those in charge of the school curriculum should be reprimanded and punished for their biased teachings. I honestly consider it child abuse. If I ever had children I would absolutely not allow them into Public School. It's extremely biased, racist, and downright abusive at times. I went through it, and Thank God I am intelligent enough to recognize this bias, a lot of whites aren't sadly and they fall right into the white guilt complex. I am an extremely confident, successful, hard working white male today and I am very proud of that. I have no white guilt in me whatsoever and since I was in my teens I am proud of that. I can't stand being around other whites who are Liberal or always showing white guilt. Sadly, my story shows how this type of complex occurs to many whites in Canada. Most whites unfortunately fall into this "white guilt" trap that the Schools push on them.
