Anonymous said: The Economist magazine reviewed a book about how slavery built early America. They complained that "Almost all the blacks in his book are victims, almost all the whites villains. This is not history; it is advocacy." Thanks for busting my stereotype that smarmy pseudo-intellectual Brits practice more subtle forms of racism than redneck Klansmen.
I like how those stupid motherfuckers think that saying something “is advocacy” invalidates it. Hey dipshits, you’re supposed to advocate against fucking SLAVERY you fucking idiots.
