I've heard about this since I live in Texas. I'm neither democrat or republican. I don't agree with Hillary Clinton's views nor Helen Keller's views. I admire HK for overcoming her challenges. My dad had plenty of stories as a diplomat during the Bill Clinton adminstration, but I can't discuss it online for security reasons. In my opinion, they should be remained in the curriculism. In Texas, Teachers CAN still teach Hillary Clinton and Helen Keller lessons. It simply is no longer required.
Robert E. Lee probably would be disappointed if he knew his cousin, Helen Keller is removed from the curriculum. However, Robert E. Lee and HK don’t share the same political views. HK was a member of the socialist party. Yep, she was a Marxist.
And a liar as well. How could she describe the inside of a lion's mouth?
I think she could describe it, but not sure if she actually remembered what the colors were when she was very young. I have no idea how much her sight can see. Since the news broke out, I got my head chewed off on other forum that I mentioned many unpopular things regarding Helen Keller's views like um, eugenics. It's interesting to see people's reactions when they find out the truth about her views. Told them to read her writings.
The more you know!
As far as eugenics go.... I think that was a rather um... "popular" movement to get behind in her time period and likely was not necessarily looked down on or considered "horrible" like it is today.
