The Black History You Didn’t Hear About This Month

In case anyone on social media forgot to remind you, February is Black History Month, and that means we all need to dive into conveniently revised history designed to make everyone forget that the Democratic Party is responsible for both Jim Crow and the Ku Klux Klan.

With Black History Month almost over, we thought it appropriate to share with you a piece of history precisely no modern day “civil rights activist” will touch on — the first batch of black Congressmen were all Republicans. That makes a lot of sense when you consider the fact that the Republican Party, which replaced the Whigs after President Abraham Lincoln’s first run, was initially founded on the sole issue of abolishing slavery. Why would a 19th century black American support any other party?

Let’s talk about one important thing in that last paragraph — notice how we had to put “civil rights activist” in quotes. This is because there is no MLK-esque figure in American politics right now — because there doesn’t need to be. While it will always be foolish to say that racism has completely vanished, the need for a nation-wide movement to condemn racism simply isn’t there.

Things are going so well, that a black actor who wanted an extra 15 minutes of fame had to hire people — two black Nigerians — to stage a hate crime attack. Apparently, America has progress so much that the supply for racism doesn’t meet the demand.
