Here’s is a couple of names that are rarely or never spoken in black history month I never did the same people in school as I was flabbergasted why these names are never spoken but here is a couple of names

Robert L. Johnson- first black billionaire
Benjamin Banneker- various things he has done
Patricia Era Bath-Medical Dr. (Dealing with eyes)

Forums are mostly dead these days. So what does it matter? Plenty of posts over the 5 years or so of playing, just mute and that’s it.

I mean it’s actually kinda nice to learn this stuff. Yes some of the topics they post are stupid, no offense blood, but this one isn’t. Yes I could easily look this stuff up like they’re doing but still, it’s nice to learn things like this.

In this case the topic is topical and relevant to the portrait release.

Hey Blood, I like you, and your posts are light-hearted and a nice change of pace on here. Don’t let the constant negative comments and polls to you from the forum guard dogs tear you down.

A more recent figure I’d mention is economist Walter Williams (1936-2020), rest in peace and thank you for getting people to think and challenging the status quo. An interview of his: Walter Williams Suffers No Fools - YouTube

I would say if it wasn’t this man I really believe America would not be what it is today
This man is one of the most crucial variable in the war against British if you see what he done for the war against Britain for our independence

Normally I’d not reply to this type of off topic thread ……
But I will say this one has merit and was timed to have relevance!

And it is actually very informative for those who are unaware of just how substantial these contributions to our society are!

What would be cool is if PG artists based their portraits on some of these historical figures as a way of paying homage to them. For example, they could make a “Healer of Dragons, Nathaniel” as a reference Augustus Nathaniel Lushington.
