Exactly. Or at the very least, being honest with ourselves about our ancestors. My family has lived in the south since pre-Revolutionary times. We know some of them owned slaves. But my family today is mostly left-leaning Democrat, so I always heard growing up that our family had a reputation for being Northern sympathizers during the Civil War. When I was younger, I just took this as truth. Now that I’m older, I’ve looked into the claim, and have found exactly zero evidence of this, and have instead found plenty of family members who served in the army of the CSA. Now, I don’t feel any personal shame in this, as I didn’t choose the family I was born into. But it is important that I not continue to spread a lie that our family wasn’t on the wrong side of history.
