7 PM EST – On this first day of Black August 2021, we look at how the cotton industry made kings in america.
One of the United States’s many official media outlets, Voice of America published a video of Peggy Wallace, the daughter of the racist former Governor of Alabama George Wallace, says she is on a mission to promote “racial tolerance”.
The word “tolerance” is probably not the best word to use when referring to Black people. Its like saying white people should tolerate Black people as you would a pest so we can all “just get along”.
The video was published as content made specifically for Black History month. Voice of America (VOA) is the official external broadcast institution of the United States federal government. run by the Broadcasting Board of Governors.
