Great Moments in Google: "Samuel Coleridge-Taylor"
Print Friendly and PDF

You may not have known that Samuel Taylor Coleridge (1772-1834), author of The Rime of the Ancient Mariner and Kubla Khan, was black, but that’s what Google is here for. Anyway, why are you looking up Samuel Taylor Coleridge during Black History Month instead of Samuel Coleridge-Taylor? That’s racist.

Was 2019 the Best Black History Month Ever? There’s been a lot of competition over the years, but my impression is that this year was indeed something special.

I can’t wait to see what 2020 will dream up.

In other Fake Reference news, somebody has hacked the Wikipedia page for Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart (R-Havana), Fidel’s former nephew-in-law, and put in a picture of me.
