We’re all familiar with the uneducated, foaming-at-the-mouth racist type.

What we’re less familiar with are super-wealthy US families who have been racists for generations.

We’re even less familiar with “researchers” and ‘historians” who make up “facts” to subtly and not-so-subtly and diminish the reputations of the leaders of non-white communities.

Did you know that we also run Jazz on the Tube, a free service.
