OK, so it’s Black History Month, where they talk about such historical inspirational black figures, like Booker T. Washington, Frederick Douglass, and Shaq.
We’ll go a different route by noting a couple interesting sites that discuss hypothesized modern-day genocide of blacks.
blackgenocide.org: Notes the disparity in black and white abortion rates, makes the claim that some abortion advocates’ true intention is a form of legalized genocide.
HIV/AIDS The Untold Story: There is a belief in the black community that AIDS was created in the lab specifically to target blacks, and is not an STD. (My ex believed this. Mr. E does not.)
The author of the linked article states that this theory has actually been advanced by white supremacists to interfere with AIDS prevention efforts.
By the way, the reason we kept the black background is because of Black History Month. Originally, the idea was to have a post where the Mascot would honor the color black instead of black people and I’d chide him for being stupid. It didn’t really work out.
