This is a disgusting piece that reads like white people spoofing or parodying and making a caricature out of Black people while also stealing their history. Parody or not, this sh*t's harmful.

It's like a bunch of people sat in a room twirling their thumbs and wondering what would be the "funniest" thing to publish during Black history month: "let's take Black people's history and transplant it on to white people, erasing their identities and struggles for our amusement."

Poor taste. Poor editorial insight.
