Black History Month ending in the US, The Onion reports the start of White History Year, which celebrates such greats as Neil Armstrong, Jonas Salk and Mae West. Notes one academic enthusiastically:
"There's so much more white history out there than you might imagine," said Dr. James Corman, a Princeton University history professor. "America's publishing houses, newspapers, movie studios, magazines, and radio stations have kept remarkably thorough records of white Americans' accomplishments."

A very simple and effective satire on the notion of dividing history up by racial groupings.
