"The Opposite Of The Truth"

From the NY Times:
“Everybody has to take license in movies like this, and it can be hard for nit-pickers like me to suspend nit-picking,” Diane McWhorter, the author of “Carry Me Home: Birmingham, Alabama: The Climactic Battle of the Civil Rights Revolution,” said in an interview.

“But with the portrayal of L.B.J.,” she continued, “I kept thinking, ‘Not only is this not true, it’s the opposite of the truth.’ ” [my underlines]

It was not OK for white folks to genetically white wash the Noah story. It is simply not genetically accurate for Noah AND his wife to be portrayed the way they were.

It was NOT OK for Exodus God's and Kings to whitewash ancient Egypt.

It is also NOT OK for black folks to re-write and "black wash" historical facts as it regards the Civil Rights movement. But color me unsurprised given the fiction of Mike Brown that far too many people STILL believe, even though it is contradicted by all available facts.

There are a lot of people out there who specialize in being "offended" rather than specializing in getting and stating the facts. Unfortunately the former get far more attention. That whole squeaky wheel thing.
