Not everyone likes to learn about history, most do not even try, but those that know about past events know about trends in humanity. They know the trial and tribulation that many minorities have gone thru and still continue to go thru today. Sometimes you have to dig deep to uncover the truth about what has happened in the past, most people only know what they learned in history class. Most of what is learned in history books are not the whole story about the events that accured. To know about those things not taught in classes or left out of the history books you must research and read into the matter yourself. By learning about the past, for yourself, you can better understand some of the problems of today, to understand what minorities are fighting for now you must understand what they have come thru and over-came.
