Facts become fiction and fiction fact. And its always done so to someone or some groups benefit.Take the history of slavery, for instance. This always polemical subject has been a key element in the history of our joined States of America for many generations, and will be for many more. But the truth, instead the complete truth is non taught in school. Why? Because if it was there be certain groups of people that would be outraged.
