Losing lunch

This morning, as I sat to watch a PBS “documentary” about Africa’s great civilizations, I got a whiplash from shaking my head, within a few minutes. Why are people who know absolutely nothing about African history, so hell bent on telling the history of Alkebulan? And why is Henry Louis Gates, surrounded by cunning Europeans, willing to prostitute his half baked ancestry? When anyone states that the queen of Sheba met king Solomon, among other fallacies, it’s a sure sign s/he is a liar. Then I was reminded of the real purpose for the show: $20 to $240 donations to support the program.
