You remember that excellent educational magazine? You know, the one with the yellow border that arrived at your house or classroom monthly? The one that taught you about the lifecycle of the Costa Rican tree frog, how plate tectonics worked, stunning photos from Voyagers I & II and, most importantly, topless women in Borneo villages. I am referring to National Geographic, of course.
Like all good things in the United States in the current year, very sad, overeducated and VERY woke leftists have taken over and crapped all over it.
Let me explain. Nat Geo has taken long-time NPR personality Michele Norris’s “Race Card Project” and created a series with it.
It’s every bit as awful as you would think.
Let’s look at the thread of people who can describe their experience with race in the United State in six words. At this point you know what it will be: white virtue signalers, oppressed people–some of which are oppressed for getting the wrong kind of adoring attention–victims and people displaced by imperialism, colonialism and white supremacy.
Honestly, there’s nothing wrong with a hard look at our imperfect past and the sin of slavery. But like most ultra-wokies, you can never take it far enough. Everything is bad and we are really, really, really sorry about it. I mean, not enough to do anything about it, but here’s a glossy spread to assuage our guilt.
So, in that spirit, we created our own, “I’ll give you something to cry about,” project: The Woke ‘n’ Broke Project! You’re invited to tell us, in six words, where the Bad America touched you. Here are some of the best (and some from me too).
