    For anyone who struggles with their inability to view minorities as true Americans or consider black Americans somehow less than white Americans, I have a suggestion.

    Learn.

    Spend some time exploring the history of black Americans. Gain an understanding of their struggle and their awesome contribution to the greatness of this nation.

    Here’s a nice way to start. Listen to this outstanding podcast.

    The name Wentworth Chesswell Should be as famous as Paul Revere!

    Mr. Chesswell was a black american who rode with paul revere calling out "to arms, the brittish are coming".

    But the likes of jesse jackson & al sharpton can't have you knowing this...so they erased Mr. Chesswell from most history books.

    Blacks being proud of their American heritage just wont do for some.

    Many think that ALL blacks were slaves...they just can't imagine free black men in early America...even though that was the case.

    I have no such inability.

    I have however come to consider that modern-day Democrats are by their very philosophical construction not only definitely not American, but also lower life forms of limited cognizance. How the United States could fall so far as to produce such twisted facsimiles is unfathomable to me.

    I have explored their history, particularly their recent history these last two decades, and have assessed that like the German youth of Hitler's Germany, they are unsalvageable. They will always be what they are, and their children will be worse.

    Another one-
    Madame C.J. Walker became the first female African-American millionaire by inventing a line of cosmetics and hair products aimed at black consumers in the first decades of the 20th century.



    Dr. Daniel Hale Williams (January 18, 1858 – August 4, 1931)
    African American physician who performed the first prototype open-heart surgery.


    George Washington Carver, Martin Delaney, and many others.
