Black History Month -- On. Rev. Wayne Perryman

"Reading Rev. Perryman’s thoroughly-documented 106 pages of charges and specifications, establishing standing on behalf of the entire class of African Americans, I learned a great many things about black history that I had never known before. For example, I had always assumed that Democratic support for slavery was largely limited to the South. I was unaware that Democratic support for slavery was nearly as strong among northern Democrats as it was in the South....

However, a quick review of web sites and articles on the Internet, all of them touting and promoting Black History Month, provides a stark contrast to the actual events of recorded history. These sources contain hardly a single reference to the elements of black history upon which Rev. Perryman bases his reparations lawsuit – as if none of it ever happened.

In the last three decades, and more, the teaching of Black History has become a major focus in our public schools, particularly in schools of the inner cities. However, when we consider that our children are being taught by members of the National Education Association (NEA) and the American Federation of Teachers (AFT), both political subsidiaries of the Democratic Party, is it any wonder that the Black History curriculum is heavy on music, entertainment, and sports history, and very, very light on political history?

It represents one of the greatest cover-ups in history, and although we are not generally in favor of paying reparations to entire classes of citizens, we can at least hope that the historical documentation contained in Rev. Perryman’s lawsuit will soon become part of the public debate.

Booker T. Washington said:

"There is another class of colored people who make a business of keeping the troubles, the wrongs, and the hardships of the Negro race before the public. Having learned that they are able to make a living out of their troubles, they have grown into the settled habit of advertising their wrongs -- partly because they want sympathy and partly because it pays. Some of these people do not want the Negro to lose his grievances, because they do not want to lose their jobs....There is a certain class of race-problem solvers who do not want the patient to get well, because as long as the disease holds out they have not only an easy means of making a living, but also an easy medium through which to make themselves prominent before the public."
