'Massa Scott Allen' reasons Black History Month should honor white people, Wisconsin lawmaker scoffs

Without even a hint of satire, a white Wisconsin legislator is actually trying to whitewash Black History Month by honoring more people who aren’t black than those who are. 

The myth of the first Thanksgiving is a buttress of white nationalism and needs to go

Most Americans assume that the Thanksgiving holiday has always been associated with the Pilgrims, Indians, and their famous feast. Yet that connection is barely 150 years old and is the result of white Protestant New Englanders asserting their cultural authority over an increasingly diverse country.

Those laid off from Oni Press included its one black editor, Desiree Wilson, while executive editor Ari Yarwood resigned a week later. 

“Blue Lives Matter!” Except when a black cop told this entitled Virginia state senator where to park
