Some stories are interesting. Still, I think this may be best to listen to when trying to sleep.

People back then were surely brainwashed

(5 stars)

Interesting vignettes from the past. Stories are well narrated and written. would recommend. They teach us that people back in 1891 were incredibly brainwashed. They had no class or race consciousness. They were oblivious to the systemic inequality that lay at the foundations of every society. I just thank the goddess that I am living in an age where where everyone correctly look at everything in terms of the race and the injustice perpetuated by white people. In order to fight inequality we must support Amazon Prime and their fight for Diversity Inclusion and Equality

well read
