It's not difficult to understand why there is a Black History Month but not a White History Month. That's because White History Month is every month.

And then there is Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, who rejected a new high school Advanced Placement African-American studies course, so he's trying to erase Black history completely. DeSantis believes the course "lacks educational value" and violates the state's Stop WOKE Act by promoting critical race theory (CRT).

I wouldn't be shocked if DeSantis tried to scrub Black History Month, too, if he ever is elected to the presidency. He would probably replace it with Ashli Babbit Month or The Plight Of White America Month. I'm sure he would issue an Executive Order for a Tucker Carlson Day, too.

Conservatives took to Twitter to express their outrage.

So many white tears:

Cry more, please.


The racists raging against Black History Month while being OK with the outrage against Critical Race Theory -- which is accurate but not actually taught in high schools -- need to listen to this clip featuring James Baldwin:

Happy Black History Month, y'all.
