Wide Awake

Based on extreme conservative beliefs
Keep the "textbook version" of history
"...he still held on to the idea that, say, indigenous Americans got a great deal when the Pilgrims came over...Jimmy and I figured we could get through it because other teachers told us the truth, not just the Thanksgiving version."

"Every time another became equal to straight white guys, it made Mr. Davis feel like he had that much less power..."
"'I've had it up to here with this so called equality...'"
