'Uhhh No Bi***' Donald Trump Changed #BHM To African-American History Month And There Aren't Enough Eye Roll Emojis To Accurately Respond

But seriously, what is going on?
  • In a press release from the White House, the Trump Administration took it upon themselves to reclaim Black History Month as 'African-American History Month'

    According to TMZ, a meeting between Trump and African-American leaders led the president to believe the term "Black" is outdated, and  "African-American" is more appropriate. 

    Since 1976, every U.S. president has proclaimed the month of February to be Black History Month. Although the proclamation is not new, his decision to use the term "African-American History Month" has caught many off guard. 

  • As soon as people read that the president designated the month to be 'African-American History Month' they had one simple response

  • Many pointed out that the term Black is often preferred to be globally inclusive

  • How many times does the president have to show us that he understands nothing about Black history?
