While Melania Trump is justifiably being dragged by Twitter for plagiarizing First Lady Michelle Obama’s 2008 speech, need to direct your attention to much more egregious commentary made earlier in the day by a longtime TransGriot SUF Awards contender in Rep. Steve King (R-IA)
I can’t stand King because of his long history racist remarks, but yesterday he went too far during an MSNBC interview in which he must have been reading Mein Kampf before he went on air
King said that non-whites ‘subgroups’ haven’t contributed to Western civilization in comments made in response to writer Charles Pierce’s comments about ‘old white guys’ running the Republican Party. .
Well Steve, here’s a short list for the stuff just African Americans have contributed to society like blood banks, open heart surgery, traffic signals, gas masks, potato chips, refrigerated trucks and railway cars, the world’s fastest computer, automated steam engine lubricator and the Super Soaker water gun..
Benjamin Banneker not only built the first clock in the Americas, he published an almanac for over a decade and helped do the surveys that laid out Washington D.C.
So naw fool, your ignorant racist behind doesn’t even need to try to go there
