In the movie Hidden Figures Americans are being brainwashed with the Fake History that we couldn’t have made it to the moon without sassy black women doing the math.
I have seen the film. The racists claiming it is an attempt to rewrite history to deny white accomplishment in favour of black women clearly have not. And if they actually did, it just shows how fragile their “white pride” actually is.
Paul Kersey has already pointed out that the flight path trajectory was actually developed by a white Southerner, Dr. Jack Crenshaw.
Anyone who thinks that something like that could be the accomplishment of one single specific person is an idiot far too wrapped up in hero worship and the myth of the genius.
But there’s an even more Politically Incorrect truth: we couldn’t have done it without Germans—specifically, Nazi rocket scientists.
So you do acknowledge that this is not the accomplishment of one person?
For that matter, we probably couldn’t have launched the Star Wars anti-missile program
Er, you didn’t.
and won the Cold War
No, we won the Cold War because we outlasted the Soviet Union and its satelites, who collapsed under their own chronic economical incompetence and political oppression and corruption.
