But is okay.
Space, as Dr. Greg Johnson and I discussed, is but a dream deferred.
Because Hidden Figures is truly science fiction, designed to boost the egos of blacks today and paint white people of yesterday as nothing more than hideous racists incapable of reaching the heavens without... hidden black female mathematicians.
But that's not quite true, is it John H. Sengstacke?
Who was Sengstacke? In Lynn Spiegel's book Welcome to the Dreamhouse: Popular Media and Postwar Suburbs (p. 165), we learn just who he is:
By the following week, the Defender's editor and publisher John H. Sengstacke had reversed the paper's initial enthusiasm almost completely. In his editorial, "Lily-White NASA," Sengstacke admonished NASA for failing to rain any black men as astronauts since the death (in 1967) of Maj. Robert H. Lawrence. he thought this exclusion was not simply an oversight but intentional. "The Pentagon," he wrote, "has seen to it that [no other black man] is selected for that training." Then he concluded with a not-too-veiled threat: "In truth, there are virtually no Negroes involved in the National Aeronautics and Space Administration... This is typical American racism in action. Like all other areas of racial bias in American life which had to be assaulted by picketing and militant demonstrations, NASA awaits its baptism of racial fire before it integrates its space program." (column published by the Chicago Defender, July 29, 1969)When you distill down black contributions to the United States of America, they all are nothing more than perfecting the art of picketing and militant demonstrations in demanding white people abandon their future to provide blacks with a present.
In so doing, we ultimately destroy the future for everyone.
To get to space today, our astronauts hitch a ride with the Russians.
I was born in a world where white supremacy had been supplanted by egalitarianism, which ultimately birthed black supremacy and the strange belief that every human on the planet somehow possesses rights to be an American under the U.S. Constitution.
And though Hidden Figures is poised to win Best Picture, the truth of what happened in the 1960s, when white men stepped foot on the moon a mere 66 years after white men flew for the first time in human history in Kitty Hawk, North Carolina, represents the ultimate seeds of our liberation.
John H. Sengstacke knew it, too.
The black contributions to America are simply assaulting the American way of life white people collectively create with pickets and militant demonstrations, demanding we abandon our dreams so that we can fund theirs.
We mortgaged the future on the belief we could spend trillions of dollars to prove race was really just a social construct, but in so doing, we were provided with endless data samples proving the contrary.
