    Not every American is my age.

    Modern American history textbooks do not accord Chisolm her due.

    She lived in Brooklyn for many years. And retired in Florida.

    I feel stupid for not making an effort to meet her IRL.

    What a leader!

    Pan, I am reporting this post. Every time you feel I won an argument with you, you carry on trying to bite my ankles for days.

    You did this very thing in the thread I started about wild American horses.

    It is a detriment to this board. Kindly find an offline way to cope with your wounded ego. There is nothing controversial about admiring Chisolm, except to a white supremacist or misogynist.

    Seriously, dude. Find your big boy panties.

    IMO?

    As every bit the hero MLK is, with the streets named for her, etc.

    Is American Experience searchable? I agree, they do fabulous documentaries.

    I dropped Netflix and might not be back. Their content is just not accessible to me. I am sick of their "If you liked Endeavor...." thing.

    Plus, they are spendy.

    I am watching The Untold History of the United States, and working up to watching Ken Burns' Vietnam War documentary.

    Both are on Amazon Prime.

    Thanks for the recommendations.

    You make yourself irrelevant with such nonsense posts.

    And no. I am a Progressive, not a Republican.

    I'm sorry but words have meaning and "we" doesn't just mean all your various personas, as included in YOUR premise presented in YOUR OP. Which makes it part of the conversation and debate.

    Please don't include the rest of us in your own ignorance of historical events. Which is right on topic.

    I'm sorry you choose to remain ignorant of wild horses since you brought that up again too, but I know ignorance can be a comfort to some. The argument you made in favor of euthanizing horses before emergency events in that other thread was pretty profound though.

    Yep. The episodes are searchable on youtube and on their website although the quality various and not all episodes are available
