According to Stephanie Miller, members of the Tennessee Tea Party have made the demand that all references to slavery be removed from school textbooks.  Will society allow uneducated bigots to make professional pedagogical decisions regarding classroom materials?  What's next, a return to leeches as the primary treatment mode allowed for doctors to use?  I haven't researched the story, but they probably also object to depictions of how the U.S. treated native Americans through battles and through the setting up of Indian reservations.
