    Truths are so necessary

    I love the way this pairs history with current events. It allows us to reflect on how far we think we have come and compare how far we’ve actually come as a nation. It helps us to understand how institutional racism is not disparate impact rather disparate treatment. It is a key building block in our foundation. We need to hear more stories like this, we need to share history and show how it continues so that we can make a change for the better. All of the nay-sayers and 1 star reviewers are the root of our problems. They are the same people who have always felt threatened by black progress. It is possible to coexist in this world. You don’t have to maintain the perpetual foot on neck of black people to live comfortably. Let go of your anger and fear and see that the sun is warm and flowers smell nice. The hatred is just toxic!

    Ticking off the American Racists One Chapter at a Time 🤷🏼‍♀️

    Excellent reporting and history (both near and far) being presented in a professional and intriguing story. I can’t wait for Season II. Initially I was confused as to why this podcast doesn’t have 5 stars across the board. Yet reading the low rated reviews, it’s simply bcuz the racists are mad. Yet another black woman is professional, smart and presenting an accurate history of the injustices that still prevail in our country. As a white, middle aged mama I am learning so much that I never even knew existed. Thank you, NYT and especially Nikole Hannah-Jones for your excellent research and story telling. I can’t wait to learn more. Please keep speaking the truth!!!

    Why don’t so many white Americans of today accept the truths of black Americans

    This podcast was enlightening. I can’t wait to hear more. It’s disturbing to see how many people want to discount and deny the racism targeted at black Americans. Even today in 2021! Until you (non-blacks) walk in a black person’s shoes you should be more open to accept our experience instead of deny it. We are not trying to divide our country, but we want to obliterate this disease called racism. We are all Americans and deserve equal justice, education, jobs, pay, medical treatment, financial opportunities and police protection under the law. I’m a true believer in the Golden Rule: DescriptionThe Golden Rule is the principle of treating others as you want to be treated.

    Racist Propaganda

    It funny to see how many ignorant leftists are dumb enough to swallow this racist propaganda. Eventually, the self loathing will suffocate them till ending their miserable existence will be the only option left.

    Great, but not perfect

    I chose my review title intentionally because an attempt to fully encompass both the story and what to do with it would have failed by definition. What we receive with this project is a history presented from an underrepresented perspective; in some cases in opposition to what has been accepted and taught as “History”. It’s provocative, discomforting, but hopeful. It’s not a recommendation, but it should be inspiration for deeper discussion about its implications and the potential paths forward. I gave it four stars rather than five for personal reasons. I would like to have heard more about the source materials and how they came to light. I also would have liked to have heard some more discussion about the wrestling being done with the report. That probably wasn’t possible at the time it was made, but given the impact the 1619 Project has made on today’s discourse about race in America it almost certainly exists somewhere now. Regardless, I highly recommend this series as a path to consider the relative experiences of white and black Americans, and as fodder to practically consider how we might move forward (hopefully together).

    Racism is bad but

    The ideals behind the founding documents of our country were in conflict with the institution of slavery. To ratify the Constitution, the founding fathers had to concede to slavery. It was America’s original sin. Tensions between our founding ideals and the culture of the South grew until they sparked the Civil War. Lincoln, motivated by the Declaration of Independence, led the North in abolishing slavery. America was at fault for conceding to slavery, but we were not founded on slavery.We can’t judge the past with the eyes of the present. Lincoln would today be considered a racist. Does that mean we can’t support anything he did? No. Despite his faults, he did good, and fought for equality in an unjust society. It was the same for our founding fathers. Despite their faults, they fought for equality in an unjust society. America was founded on ideals of freedom and equality. Racism continued in the form of segregation. The civil rights movement, with King at the head, fought it. Segregation was ended. King said, “I have a dream that my children will be judged no by the color of their skin but by their character.” This has not been realized. Today, the color of your skin is believed to determine what you must think (“You’re a Republican?! You aren’t a real person of color.”), and whether you are victim or an aggressor. Reconciliation and an end to racism will not come if we can’t focus on unity rather than an impossible-to-breach divide. This is the narrative I think is truth. The podcast contradicts it. At least hear this out before we tear our government down in the name of equality.

    the Whole Story

    It was so refreshing and eye opening to see a more complete picture of American history! What we are taught in schools is severely lacking and I was thrilled to learn about the stories that are too often left out. I couldn’t wait to listen to the next episode! This project holds a mirror up to America’s face and hopefully, we will not turn away just because we don’t like what we see. It’s important to be honest and reflective, but the secret’s out — we only know the half. And as an educator, it excites me that the whole story is coming to light. Truth can’t (and won’t) stay hidden, and that’s what makes this project all the more beautiful. I’ve recommended this podcast to everyone I know!

    Educate yourself and leave your mind open

    As an immigrant of color (40 years ago) and being sometimes subject to intense racism, sometimes physical, none of this surprised me. However, the detailed stories and facts made me feel guilty for thinking I was treated like crap. These truths have perpetuated racism, maintained BlackOppression even into the 2020s. I came to the USA as an affluent and well educated woman, with money. Yet so many white people treat me as inferior and lazy. I can imagine how the descendants of slaves must be treated. And therein lies my awakening. I have no need to know things that are bad in American history if they make me angry or cry, except I do have a need educate myself and work for a better Nation. Thank you for making this podcast. To all those white supremacist who rate this poorly, when you are able to open your mind and educate yourself to our truths, perhaps when you want a better world for your descendants, you will accept historical facts instead of feeling fearful of them. Perhaps then you’ll question your authority instead of accepting it blindly.

    Why so angry

    Sadly the amount of anger in the reviews is not surprising in this age of “you’re racist if you believe in racism” as a political philosophy. Like Holocaust denial, resistance to the idea that our American economy and government were based in the enslavement of other human beings is both harmful and dangerous. This is what happened, folks. We have to deal with it, not deny it. Grow up.

    Stories we don’t hear often enough

    This is a series about some of the hidden supports of American culture that we don’t always consider. The roots in African and Black culture of Yacht Rock. The history of public heath concerns—also rooted in disturbing and inaccurate beliefs about race. Black farmers. It’s there. It’s our history. Let’s recognize it, honor it, respect it and embrace it.

    Disgusting This is a racist!

    Only 2% of the white population had slaves during the Civil War! That’s it! So how many have bloodlines to this small 2% 150+ years later! This is pure insanity and the most racist assault in history. The civil war was the fight to settle this burden! This is pure hatred and unjustified! Down with BLM a horrid terrorist group! Quit Censoring us! Quit burning our cities down! Quit Assaulting us! We are sick of you shoveling your propaganda down our throat! These people are wrong! Wake up white people! You owe no one anything! Wake up to this new racism! Hate is hate! These people are truly awful, ignorant and truly sick and evil!!
