Sorry, I’ve been sidetracked away from history for way too long.
Since February is Black History month and much of Black History has been erased by progressives, here’s a story you probably don’t know.
A former black slaved named Jack Sisson was a hero of the Revolutionary War. In case you forgot, that war won us independence from the British and predated the Constitution.
The Americans wanted to kidnap British Brigadier General Richard Prescott, Commander of the British forces in Newport, Rhode Island. Since this was a risky operation where all involved could have been killed, the American commander asked for volunteers. He got 20 black soldiers and 20 white soldiers who agreed to try.
Funny how race was immaterial in 1777.
You can read about more here, some details I got from other accounts: https://www.revolutionarywarjournal.com/jack-prince-sisson/
Jack was the hero because he knocked out Prescott, picked him up and carried him to the waiting Americans who did successfully kidnap him. He was kidnapped because they needed a prisoner to exchange for one of theirs.
If real history was being taught every race would have heroes to look up to. Blacks have many they know nothing about.
Systemic racism is a figment of progressive imaginations meant to keep us apart. It doesn’t exist.
The below appeared on Facebook this week after Aunt Jemina got erased. Look at all those racists surrounding this real life lady, I think I heard she got rich from use of her image. Details details.
