Historical day in Peak Blackness - September 4th
Let’s start with the most important thing:
On this day in 1957, Governor Orval Faubus (BTW: THAT NAME THO) brought out the Arkansas National Guard to support segregationists who were protesting these nine fine young Americans, who were simply trying to, you know, INTEGRATE A GODDAMN SCHOOL. Thanks to them and all they endured.
You might not know but a lot of other cool stuff happened today:
1960 - Damon Wayans is born.
1977 - Kia Stevens is born. You may know her as Awesome Kong.
1981 - B’Day. ‘Nuff Said.
1998 - Google is founded. Black people use Google all the time. Seriously, you probably used it like twice in the time it took you to read this.
