It looks like you had so much fun! I lived in DC for 5 years, and it is such a fun city to explore, especially for a history major. Have fun!

@ComputerLove06:  Yay, I cringed a bit at that as well. I don’t think she meant anything bad by it, but still. Probably not the best choice of words.

@mrspinesol:  its not saying slavery wasnt real its just your choice of words were pretty distasteful (Im African American) and although im not super offended, it did come off the wrong way. you said it so loosely (for lack of better words) with the “y’all” that it appears you dont understand the seriousness of it. 

as far as the holocaust, that is sensitive too. usually its wise to not say anything about an event in history that could be taken as largely offensive when you are around ppl who were directly affected by it. you cant walk into the holocaust musuem and say anything that could be interpreted as negative to ppl of Jewish heritage bcus although you mean no harm, it didnt happen to you or your ppl (assuming you arent Jewish) so how can u properly make the judgment on what someone can and cant be offended by? you just cant. 

for what is worth i live in MD, 10 minutes outside of the border so i know the city well. we are mostly a diverse group, with strong opinions, and issues of mass genocide, anything similar etc. is a very SENSITIVE subject here in the capitol so be mindful as you explore our city.

@mrspinesol:  Yes, he freed them. It was the casual way you said it that made me cringe. We are cringing because we recognize the national shame that comes along with it. Not that we don’t realize that “slavery was real, and it happened”.
