American history is very American-centric. The History isn't objective rather it is tainted through the lens of American apologetics. That is that America has done little that is wrong and is largely responsible for anything good that has happened in the world. Negative implications toAmerican foreign and domestic policy are often glossed over or not dealt with altogether. There must be a systematic balanced approach to the telling of history. At the very least there must be a distinction made so America's children do not grow up believing in half truths and propaganda as history.
