Do You Know This Black History Legend?: Well Can You Teach Education Secretary How To Spell His Name

Twitter was lit this weekend and it wasn’t just because of the Grammys, but give some credit to the Trump White House for once again proving why Black History is still a thing…and much needed.

The newly appointed Ed Secretary Betsy DeVos’ decided to send out a fitting quote acknowledging Black History Month by quoting civil rights activist, educator and NAACP founding father W.E.B. DuBois.  Great idea…epic fail.  Here’s the initial tweet:

If you’re going to acknowledge a legendary figure like DuBois, please, please spell-check.  Too late, never mind Twitter already discovered how the Education Department misspelled writing “DeBois”…instead of DuBois. Everyone from former CNN Anchor Soledad O’Brien to Star Trek’s Jordie LeForge actor LeVar Burton was all over the glaring typo….

 

Ok, lesson learned.  Surely the Secretary of Education will spell check future tweets…right? WRONG! Even the “apology tweet” would fail elementary school English….

 

Former President Obama, can you help us out here with an appropriate reaction:

Thank you Mr. Obama.

Well, DeVos is simply following the lead of the President who appointed her.  Let’s not forget that Trump kicked off Black History month with his own foot-in-mouth moment that left many wondering if he even knew who Frederick Douglass since Trump made it sound like Douglass is still alive and picking up new fans everyday.

Fortunately, we’ve already reached the middle of Black History month, so how many more embarrassing moments can the Trump administration suffer trying to pander to a month that they clearly don’t seem to care enough about to be bothered with Wikipedia and checking a few major facts points.

But in all honesty, we have to thank Trump and his cronies —I can’t remember a more entertaining Black History Month. We’ve only got 15 more days to go before the Trump White House can be done with all this Black History stuff and get back to something they know all about like voter fraud, Muslims bans and how the Judicial Branch vs. the Executive Branch of our government works.

    With havin so much content and articles do you ever run into any
    issues of plagorism or copyright violation? My blog
    has a lot of exclusive content I’ve either created myself or outsourced but it appears a lot of it is popping it
    up all over the web without my agreement. Do you know
    any techniques to help stop content from being stolen?
    I’d really appreciate it.
