My contribution to Black History Month

History, contrary to what the politically-correct culture wallahs would have us believe, is not about celebrating 'positive role models', for these are few and far between, and the biggest contributors to history are generally the biggest, most murderous bastards, and Black History Month would be a whole lot more interesting if it focused on Idi Amin, Mobuto and the like.

Still, here's the guy for the posters - the great Toussaint Louverture.

I'd never heard of him until now. You learn something new everyday. Thanks.

He's an interesting, not to say inspiring character. Sadly it's been pretty much downhill for Haiti ever since he was disappeared.

John Bird did Idi Amin awfully well.
