1. 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. 

    I’m Tommy Davidson and this has been another “Historical day in Peak Blackness.”
