Welcome back everyone! Today, we have a story time history lesson that will prove to you all just how crazy U.S. history actually was. Where are we starting our story? Well, in the middle of the height of the Cold War. You know, the war that was less of actual fighting and killing and more of psychological warfare. The U.S. government was terrified that the Soviets, Chinese, and North Korean agents were using mind control and brainwashing tactics against U.S. prisoners of war in Korea. So, what did we do?

Learn about the ways in which the Constitution was created from our previous independence documents and experiences under the English Crown!

Our Constitution is actually the compilation of several ideas from previous documents. Essentially, our Founding Fathers cut pieces from the Magna Carta, English Bill of Rights of 1689, the Declaration of Independence, and the Articles of Confederation in order to construct the document we see today. I know what you’re thinking: James Madison is a plagiarist? *Gasp*. Well, let’s take a look and you can decide.

Know their names. Know their stories.

This blog includes the stories of eight black individuals who were killed at the hands of white cops, who still have not been granted justice. It is important to note here that the stories below are exemplary and not exhaustive.

These officers obstructed Floyd’s breathing for nearly nine minutes until he passed away.
