Watching CBS Evening News last evening, I just learned a great deal of American history.
Unfortunately, it was more ugliness, abuse and racism.
First, the good part:
Kevin Krigger, Jockey, Chases Kentucky Derby History, Chance To Be First Black Winner Since 1902 - Huffington Post
Now the bad:
1) Black jockeys used to dominate horse racing in the US,
2) a black jockey hasn't won since 1902,
3) once being a jockey started paying well, the white jockeys started beating the black jockeys and ran them off.
Way to go, America.
But we don' need no steenkeeng "Black History Month."
