CG, it’s funny you used fleas as an example. I posted on another thread that I switched vets because my dog’s previous vet was terrible. How do you do a check up, and then have the dog leave without being checked for fleas? He had them before and after that visit because not only were they tearing him up, those little mofos were tearing my ass up too. I finally got a vet that got rid of them.

Iím not a PBS watcher, but Iíll watch videos that I think match the standard Iím teaching. Iím a 7th grade social studies teacher. I have shown PBS documentaries to my students because theyíre very informative. There really isnít such a thing as a ďJim Crow NorthĒ though. Jim Crow is Jim Crow. Jim Crow isnít just a southern thing. Jim Crow is anything south of the Canadian border. Today, itís just a more advanced version of it. This is the kind of thread where we can learn from each other.

I saw the Holocaust was brought up too. 6 million people murdered ó thatís just what was recorded. The actual numbers were much higher than that.

Cool. Looking forward to it. But will you be able to do that without bringing Donald Trump into the mix? Lol

I never looked at it that way. Makes sense.

Hilarious!

No, I was just going to say how sad it is. Ya know, there were millions of dollars lost during the Jim Crow era due to turning business away from paying customers. The last time I checked, the whole purpose of going into business is to make a profit so you can make a living.

Pretty much every documentary series that they show, I watch. Frontline, POV, American Experience, Ken Burns, Dr. Henry Louis Gates, Jr., etc.. I am a huge fan of PBS and my local PBS station KQED. I know it’s not a documentary, but Finding Your Roots & Stories From the Stage are two of my favorites as documentary type programming. I enjoy all their programming for the most part.

My mama was in charge of programs for the Western Pennsylvania Genealogical Society, and had Dr. Gates in for a program waaaay back in his career. Super nice guy!

I donít like the newer Frontline episodes (hyper focused on news events that I already know too much about) but the older ones (maybe 2015 back) are great. Occasionally I will come across some 90s episodes on YT and theyíre still amazing.
