Is it just me, or is this one of the sorriest Black History Month in recent memory?

Rather than make the most of the admittedly abbreviated window to celebrate our culture, people seem to be cutting clown in unprecedented ways.  The end result: blatant disrespect to African American leaders, their accomplishments and our overall legacy in general.

Think I’m just in my feelings?

No, sir and no, ma’am.

Here are five developments that makes “Halp Wanted” angrier than Drake at a Macklemore concert.

1.  Noose around James Meredith Statue

Hey, you three morons who decided to deface this monument to a great Civil Rights leader with a noose and a Confederate flag, please feel free to excommunicate yourselves….from humanity.  Seriously, and don’t try to flee to the Animal Kingdom either.  They’re too good for you.  Just figure out something else you can be and do that.  Thanks.
