Schooled by Youtube: Heads of Hate #15: James Buchanan

0 Posted by - November 18, 2020 - LATEST POSTS, Video

In a video posted on The Black History School, we learn more about Buchanan’s legacy includes how he responded to the Kansas-Nebraska Act. Initiated by his predecessor, President Franklin Pierce, the act allowed settlers to decide if they were Free-Soil (anti-slavery) or pro-slavery. To end the violence between pro and anti-slavery settlers, Buchanan promoted the Lecompton Constitution, a pro-slavery document. Kansas voters rejected the document by 11,812 votes to 1,926 votes.

The black history school was designed by leading black experts to ensure that black people are fully aware of an unfiltered version of our history. We don’t have to rely on others to explain the greatness of our people and we don’t need others to educate our children. Instead, this platform is structured to give millions of black men, women and children around the world access to the truth from which we came.

    According to a detailed article in an issue of the Chicago Tribune this man was an
    avowed homosexual whose lover was well known by many in the national legislature.
    And according to a New York Daily News article several years ago ,Mr. Franklin Pierce
    was the second gay president. Newsweek magazine has headlined an issue recently
    declaring Barack Obama the first 'gay' president! Apparently the american mind has
    much to learn about its history, does it not.

    I’m pleased with the way that covers this type of topic! Usually on point, sometimes polemic, always well-researched and more often than not quite challenging.
