Pundits at WaPo, the NYT, and no doubt other leftists complain about the Moon Landing being a product of White Males, hence inherently racist. What do you think?
This weekend, Americans will celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing, an event widely considered to be a pinnacle of human achievement, let alone American ingenuity. So, of course, it falls to the flagships of establishment journalism to complain about how white men dominated the program.
The Left Dumps On Apollo 11 As A White, Male Enterprise





(personally I'm appalled that these people would take a defining moment in human history, a moment when everyone in the world stopped what they were doing to watch the marvel of a human walking on the Moon, and turn it into something negative. if anything, we need more moments like this when we can forget our divisions and focus on our similarities)

An article from that right wing crap publication "The Federalist"?

Please spare us this kind of nonsense.

We know, comrade, you have an "unusual point of view".

Of course, you've said you even think Fox News is "too liberal" right?

No it isn't. They linked the very quotes from WaPo and the NYT.

Ad hominem and insult as response. Of course the quotes from the NYT and WaPo are right there. Why do you defend them without thought or question?

You should see "Hidden Figures".

A good movie about the black female "calculators" that did a lot of the math in NASA.

And a good deal of their struggles.


Not 100% accurate though..

This kind of reporting is the kind of thing that irritates me about the current social and political climate.

Yes, the early U.S. space program was dominated by white males, but that was the culture back then, and back then, most techies were white and male -- and there was a much greater percentage of whites versus non-whites. Doesn't mean that this was the way it should have been, but I really dislike those who would denigrate this great achievement because it was not culturally correct by today's standards.

And, btw, there have been plenty of major achievements by those in other countries that were done without the assistance of whites and/or females, either -- yet I haven't read many reports of whites and/or females putting down those achievements!

(Btw, I am female.)

Wapo inadvertently paints white man In legendary status. That’s some serious hatred, it blinded them

The New York Times and Washington post just want to appeal to the Far Left SJW's (Democrats) so thinks to the Federalist to expose them for what they are. BIASED LAIRS.

From the days when the MSM didn't hate the achievements of the United States.
