Black history month

A black Indian girl. Who knew?

It’s Black History Month in the United Kingdom, but not in the United States and Canada where Black History Month is February, so black history is celebrated not once but twice! How wonderful!

Intelligent people wonder, however, why there is no White History Month, a Brown History Month or an Asian History Month. Where’s the equality, the diversity, the fairness?

It’s because blacks were slaves, you dunce, and merit special attention. But wait! All races have been slaves and all points of the globe have been involved in slavery, up to this very day.

The brilliant Simon Webb, who is an Englishman, has been “celebrating” black history this month with a long series of his perceptive videos regarding the topic.

Here he addresses the current state of descendants of black slaves who were shipped to India. The cutie in the video is one of them. Is Black History Month celebrated in India? Do Indian blacks want reparation cash? Are they disgruntled? Is there an Indian branch of BLM?

None of the above.

They are simply living their lives as other Indians do.

“White Europeans and Americans must somehow be encouraging the victim mentality.”

— Simon Webb

Silly ole Bern

WHERE HAVE we heard this malarky before?

Fighting for justice and equality.

Standing up for working families.

Supporting veterans.

Taking on Wall Street.

Fighting for a living wage.

Yada, yada, yada.

Have you nodded off yet? Could these be promises from every presidential campaign in memory? But of course.

And the ad’s title: Real Change. Ring familiar?

Change You Can Believe In.  Do you remember? And Barry did deliver on that promise, but little of it is positive. The Mideast is spinning out of control. Plus Russia, China are beefing up.

The U.S. economy slogs on. Racial conflicts escalate.

I believe every bit of it.

And the national debt, now at $20 trillion, has almost doubled during Barry’s presidency.

Oh, dear. Where is leadership?

But my favorite vow of Bernie’s is: Free public colleges! The same thing that Barry has proposed recently. Free!

Of course, there is no free lunch nor free college. Somebody is paying. For every student getting “free” tuition, somebody is toiling somewhere and paying taxes, underwriting a student whether the worker wishes to or not. Pure coercion.

More socialist silliness reflecting total cluelessness. It’s stupendous that so many Americans cheer him on.

But why not? “Free” sounds great. Manna from heaven. Money falling from trees. Silly ole Bern.  Daffy supporters.

I do hope you are not one of them.

Putting Bern behind us, let’s turn to a superior option, Ted Cruz. Look at this Cruz ad. Instead of hoary lines like “taking on Wall Street,”  “supporting the family” and absurdities like “free” college, Cruz focuses here on a specific, grave danger.

The Mohammedan threat.

After eight years of the nancy Barry, Ted Cruz would be a stupendous replacement in the Oval Office.
