Little known fact: In 1725, after numerous experiments, some dangerous, some illegal, a scientist from what is now known as Liberia, an African man whose name has been lost to history, finally managed to successfully distill and bottle racism. This scientist then travelled up and down the west African coast selling his wares as a cure to fix everything from dandruff to genocide. Eventually, this powerful elixir made it's way to what would become the United States of America, the greatest nation that has ever existed. There, this potion became a hot commodity among the then-English colony's newly immigrated African population. Over the years, this wonder drug has not only grown in popularity, it has become the most used tonic among the nation's black population. For reasons that cannot be explained, this wondrous concoction has no affect on men and women of European stock.Shocking, yes. But at least now you know the truth. So the next time a I'm-Not-Racist racist tell you that protests against racism are the actual cause of racism today, let them know they're only half right.
