Black History Month

It's that time of year again. The short month in which corporations and some politicians will pay some lip service to black people, schools will teach some surface level shit about black history in the U.S. interspersed by lies, and my fellow white people will ask "how come there's no white history month??"

And my response is because for all the years you've been alive and all the black history months you've had, you still don't know shit about black history.

Thanks to our public school curricula designed by white people, you might not know about any of the amazing black women listed here:

7 OF THE MOST UNRECOGNIZED WOMEN IN BLACK HISTORY

And so, for every blog day this month, I'll be posting something about black history to try and balance out the 11 months of whiteness we get every year. Good luck to me.
