Most think the Cold War started because of the US and its fear of commumism. But the Cold War didn't really become a thing until Namor and the people of Atlantis tried to invade Wakanda one too many times in 1945 🤷🏾‍♀️

The Illuminati, a covert think-tank established to dismantle White supremacy, was founded in 1890 and its original members included great minds like W. E. B. Du Bois, Booker T. Washington, Madame C. J. Walker, George Washington Carver, and Ida B. Wells.

The Great Pepsi Fire of 1984 where Michael Jackson's hair caught fire in a Pepsi ad has long be thought of as a freak accident. But rumor has it that the "accident" was an assassination attempt on the King of Pop's life as he was in the process of buying NBC

Professor Utonium is widely regarded as the creator of the element known as "Chemical X" circa 1998, but if you play Lauryn Hill's song "E(X)-Factor" backwards, you'll hear Hill describe how it was SHE and not him who created "Chemical X" months prior.

In 2012 a Tupac hologram debuted at Coachella & while many thought it was solely for the festival, documents uncovered back in '16 suggest that he had sent himself back in time & was attempting to send us a msg from the future.

What was he trying to tell us?

Many believe W.E.B Du Bois and Booker T. Washington's heated rivalry was due to their different approaches to the advancement of Black people, but it was *really* due to the fact that they were dating the same girl (1/2).

The girl remains lost to history, but Washington would later go on to talk about the ordeal in an diss rap he recorded in 1892. This unreleased record is the *uncredited* basis of 2007s "Same Girl" 115 years later by Usher and He-Who-Shall-Not-Be-Named (2/2)

The Cuban Missile Crisis of 1962 was thought to have been averted thanks to JFK, but the aversion was largely due to Mary J Blige who was sent on a secret mission to convince the Soviets not to bring hateration, holleration, or nuclear missiles to the dancery.

It is said that in 1999, the likes of Blacula, Morbius, Candyman, and Blade attempted to assemble a secret team known as the Dark Revengers. However, but the team was systematically disbanded when the CIA and S.H.I.E.L.D got involved (1/2).

As of 2016, Black Jesus has been conducting aggressive, undercover efforts to re-assemble the team after getting word that a brightly-discolored, oddly orange menace would take over the land. It remains to be seen if he will be able to find them. (2/2)

....And that's all I got for #FalseBlackHistory fow now. Thanks for indulging me. And happy #BlackHistoryMonth y'all!!!

In my latest, I snarkily talk about all the reasons why #ColumbusDay is wack, ahistorical, and why it totally shouldn’t be a thing anymore.…
Besides the “holiday” being an affront to our Indigenous siblings, it is also in line with America’s ever-present tradition of simultaneously celebrating White mediocrity and depravity and tbh, return to sender please 😐
In addition to this, if you *HAVE* to celebrate a “Christopher” today, there are others available, who aren’t directionally-challenged nincompoops.

Hi. It’s true that America’s White supremacist “education” (re: propoganda) system purposely obscures & omits all kinds of Black stories. AND it’s true that the technology/social media boom at the turn of this millenia has given us access to an unprecedented amount of information
~Both things~ can be true. Because nuance lol
So I think it’s unfair to be all like “omg stop dragging him” when all folx are really doing is telling him to open a book, Google something, or leave his bubble to learn something new. I don’t think that’s an unfair thing to ask of someone who professes to know better?

I hate how this question is a thing too (i.e misogynoir & colorism) but the older I get, the more I realize that it’s not because the asker is seeking validation (eff y’all, BW are dope), but more so because bigotry in dating is an immense time waster & who got time to waste?
Listening to Dawson yesterday remembering some things that Toni Morrison has explained about racial trauma/race-specific gaslighting, I am reminded that the most violent thing about racism is not just the actual violence but the joy & the *time* that it steals away from us.
And BW in these asking scenarios (even when it comes to BM) find ourselves asking this question because we already have 502052950204 things trying to tug at our very precious & not-infinite source of energy & we definitely do not want to & wasted time & affection to that list lol

As you are saying this, Debra, media outlets are still having a field day with male survivor Jimmy Bennett for even *daring* to come forward about being allegedly assaulted by Asia Argento.
What is with y’all and lying about the believability of male/non-women survivors? Like patriarchy doesn’t also chew them up and spit them out for being ~weak enough~ to be assaulted???? Hmm? What gives?
This ~superior victim~ thing that White women have going on is not the wave and it is precisely the thing that keeps undermining the efforts of #MeToo/#TimesUp and tbh, y’all need to let that shit go because if it that isn’t base narcissism, IDK what is.
