We must never forget the essential role that Black women played in our civilization.
A few years back, some stupid movie called “Hidden Figures” came out. It was about how four black women were supposedly essential to the Apollo space program.
Yeah, it was as dumb as it sounds.
We debunked it at the time in these two articles. Basically, these women only did minor things that thousands of people would have been qualified for, and constituted a tiny fraction of larger teams of people.
That didn’t stop the Jewish media from lionizing these women as geniuses and heroes, of course.
And now, Congress is honoring them with the congressional medal. Because reality isn’t nearly as important as Hollywood nonsense.
Four African American women known as the “Hidden Figures” who worked at NASA during the Space Race are being awarded Congressional Gold Medals, the highest civilian award in the US.
That’s the name of the movie, wink wink, nudge nudge!
Yes, we get it. They get the medal because of a movie.
President Donald Trump signed into law the Hidden Figures Congressional Gold Medal Act on Friday.
Engineers Christine Darden and Mary Jackson, as well as mathematician Katherine Johnson and computer programmer Dorothy Vaughan were awarded Congressional Gold Medals.
Again, all these women were “human computers.” That means they just did calculations by hand for the actual scientists and engineers – electronic calculators didn’t exist back then.
These women weren’t designing rockets, they were just one step above being janitors.
Vaughan and Jackson, who passed away, were both awarded posthumously.
A fifth gold medal was granted in honor of all women who contributed to NASA during the Space Race.
The women, who worked at NASA’s Langley Research Center in Virginia, were so-called “human computers” who did the complex calculations that made space travel possible.
They played pivotal roles in World War II aircraft testing, supersonic flight research, and sending the Voyager probes to explore the solar system. They also helped land the first man on the moon in 1969.
These journalists are trying to make it sound like if we didn’t have these Black women, we’d never have finished any of these projects.
That’s obviously ridiculous.
Democratic Senator Kamala Harris from California, one of the people who introduced the bipartisan bill, called the women “pioneers” and an inspiration to black women across the US.
“The groundbreaking accomplishments of these four women, and all of the women who contributed to the success of NASA, helped us win the space race but remained in the dark far too long,” said Harris in a press release.
The four trailblazers paved the way for women of color to make history in fields including science, math, and technology.
Vaughan, an expert computer programmer, led the segregated West Area Computing unit at the National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics (NACA), which later became NASA. At the time, black women were separated from their white colleagues and limited to using segregated bathrooms and dining facilities.
So this is another case of brown people giving each other medals, huh.
It is my honor to give this here medal to this otha nigger right here.
These people really have to grasp at straws to find “accomplishments” for brown people. The official tally is now:
- Peanut butter
- A few negroes did calculations at NASA
Except peanut butter was invented before that Black guy thought of it, if memory serves right.
So, huh, this might be the only thing Black people have ever done, I guess. I can understand their excitement.
