Re: Marilyn Vann vs Mike Miller on KPGA Today!

I wouldn't say it has been overlooked. The effort to racially marginalize, minimize, and dis-enroll as well as fictionalize historical facts requires an interesting amount of attention and detail. A mask is not a cloak of invisibilty. The person who puts the mask on is fully aware of what's behind it, so is the person who removes it. However, both persons are aware that it is a mask.
Overlooked? No.
Historical facts not politically or racially convenient in a modern context? Yes.
Nothing new in the field of history, I would say. That's why in my opinion the companion sciences of archaeology, anthropology, carbon, dating, DNA, etc, exist.
