NY Times Wins Pulitzer For Historically False Essay

NY Times Wins Pulitzer For Historically False Essay

May 5, 2020

The 2020 Pulitzer Prize for commentary was awarded Monday to Nikole Hannah-Jones for an essay in the New York Times that falsely claimed the American Revolution was fought primarily to protect slavery, according to Breitbart News.

The essay, titled “Our democracy’s founding ideals were false when they were written. Black Americans have fought to make them true,” launched the Times‘ controversial 1619 project. In it, she wrote: “Conveniently left out of our founding mythology is the fact that one of the primary reasons the colonists decided to declare their independence from Britain was because they wanted to protect the institution of slavery.” (It has since been updated to read “some of the colonists.”)

She also wrote falsely that “Anti-black racism runs in the very DNA of this country.”

Historians were very vocal in their outrage about the essay’s falsehoods, but the left isn’t interested in facts but in promoting the Racial Victim Narrative which sustains the Democrat party.
