I try to ignore stuff like this but owens is describing the height of lynch law, Jim Crow segregation and disenfranchisement, and the neo slavery of debt peonage as a wonderful time for black people
it’s moronic. My grandparents fled Florida in a Jim Crow train car with my uncle and mother so they wouldnt have to go to apartheid schools. My grandparents couldnt even vote until they got to new york, and the sad irony is they found schools like that there too
The point of erasing history like this is to reassure fox viewers that any grievances the vast majority of black people have are a) illegitimate b) their own fault. Anyway, congrats to West for being a useful tool in a propaganda campaign. At least he got to be on TV
