   Uno  Happy Black History Month, Everybody! Let the racial-healing begin.
In honor of Black History Month here is a touching story about a local Caucasian resident who just happen to be named “Black”:
Samuel P. Black grew up in Smalltown, West Virginia. As an ordinary young white man, he dropped out of junior high at the age of 14 to go to work during the depression. He served without distinction as a PFC in WWII, came back home, married the girl next door, and rented a house in an all-white neighborhood. Black raised three children, none of whom was ever arrested. He worked at night and on weekends at a pony keg to make ends meet. After he retired, he became a crossing guard at the local elementary school. Sometimes he just sat on the porch and waved at cars.
“Sam was a good man,” said a neighbor who vaguely remembered him. “He always kept his yard real nice.”
He discovered the modern definition of a "racist" as being someone who is winning an argument with a liberal and never once voted for Robert Byrd, former KKK Grand Klegal and Good DemocRAT U. S. Let's all raise a glass to Mr Black!
