All lies. [Why Not A Movie About Jack Crenshaw?—The White Man Who Actually Did What HIDDEN FIGURES Credits To Black Women, VDare.com, January 10, 2017]
|Katherine Johnson: the "black" woman who did 10th grade math and is |
now celebrated as the primary hero of Mercury and Apollo missions... if you weren't told Johnson was black, would you have assumed she was?
Nothing more, nothing less.
|Admittedly, Katherine Johnson faced no discrimination at NASA (the script writers made all the racism she faced up): probably because people thought she was white...|
Sadly, lies sell today. But it's important to note who went and saw Hidden Figures opening weekend. [Hidden Figures cast celebrates as film hits No. 1: 'We will not be erased', Entertainment.com, 1-9-17]:
Studio tracking indicated Hidden Figures‘ wide opening numbers were bolstered by women, as 64 percent of the film’s weekend audience were women. Around 56 percent of ticket buyers were over the age of 35, while 43 percent were caucasian, 37 percent were African-American, and 13 percent were Hispanic, with other races comprising the remaining 7 percent.Black women made Hidden Figures a momentary box office "hit"... hilarious. That any white people went to see this movie and didn't immediately cleanse their palate with a shot of HBO's From the Earth to the Moon documentary (showing the actual people responsible for the finest hour yet in human history) is a powerful lesson in just whose history is being erased in 2017 America.
The "black" woman (an obvious octoroon) who Hollywood wants us to believe is the only reason white men went into space.. all because she can do 10th grade arithmetic...
White people's history.
