Description

Revisionist History is Malcolm Gladwell's journey through the overlooked and the misunderstood. Every episode re-examines something from the past—an event, a person, an idea, even a song—and asks whether we got it right the first time. From Pushkin Industries. Because sometimes the past deserves a second chance.

I work at a conservative Christian University and I would never tell my gay students to just leave, because the old white Christians don't really care if they leave. There will just be other white Christian students to take their place, and make the old white men church body will be happy. Schools should be welcoming to all, willing to call out injustices, and change because diversity is the essence of life and future of our ever evolving country. If those black students leave Princeton, there will just be other white guys (future old white millionaire men) to take their place, happy that the school is homogeneous.

Malcolm is obviously one sided on this topic, probably due to Canadian perspective. Fails to mention problem of criminal activity crossing border in both directions. Also fails to note migrants from central America that don't circular migrate. It's on Congress to fix immigration, but nobody wants to be unpopular. All Americans should thank Trump for bringing the topic to the fore front. whether you like his approach or not, the discussion is long overdue.

I think we need to be careful when we start judging people's views on "others" based on today's standards. So Churchill didn't care for Indian's, well Gandhi was racist against black people. Let us not forget that he thought Indians were superior to blacks during his time in South Africa. He wrote to the British to make sure that Indians received a higher standing in South African society... Moral of the story everyone wants to think that they're better than somebody.

Doofan Tor Comparing someone who murdered millions to one who liberated millions under the guise of productive debate is disingenuous and you know it. There is hate in everyone, but not everyone decides to commit genocide. Will you compare Hitler to Gandhi and say because Gandhi showed tendencies of racism, Hitler's actions are justified? If you believe that then I have nothing more to debate. If you don't believe it, then your comparison of Churchill to Gandhi is moot.

Anoop Ramakrishna Anoop it's called making a comparison, something that is very useful when trying to understand a person or actions of people in the past.

a couple of corrections, it wasn't a restaurant that had the offensive reference to Julia Gillard on the menu, it was at a Liberal party (Australia's conservative party) fundraiser. Also, Peter Slipper, the speaker who sent the sexist text messages, wasn't a member of Gillard's party, he was a Liberal MP amd was appointed speaker because numbers in the chamber were so tight that the government couldn't afford to lose a vote to the speakers chair. Worth getting these basic facts right in a history podcast.

It would appear that there is no more revisionist history. He did say he did advertise this broken record but I was at least hoping that revisionist history would continue
