National Geographic author and Egyptologist, Kara Cooney, released a book in November that falsely claims Kyle Rittenhouse killed two Black men in Kenosha. She should probably stick to her Egyptian history and leave US politics out of it because that clearly is not her area of expertise.

By now, everyone knows the name Kyle Rittenhouse, but somehow there is still a misconception held by some uninformed people that he killed two Black men. On August 25, 2020, Rittenhouse shot three White men. No Black men were involved in this incident.

Nevertheless, Cooney’s book, Good Kings, reads, “…consider 17-year-old Kyle Rittenhouse, who used his semi-automatic weapon to kill two Black men in Kenosha, Wisconsin, while waging a glorious race war on behalf of his inherited White power.”

This false information is perpetrated by the Left media insisting that Rittenhouse is a White supremacist and giving their ignorant audience the impression that he did, in fact, kill Black men. Cooney’s book is not the first time a public proclamation that Rittenhouse killed Black men has been wrongfully made.

Cooney’s misinformed book also states that Rosa Parks “took a seat in the White section of a public bus and started the Montgomery bus boycott.” Yet another major error in the recounting of American history. Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat to a White man on a bus. That is what caused the boycott, not her sitting in the White section.

Hopefully the history books our future generations read in school are edited more thoroughly than Cooney’s book was. It’s a shame that such blatantly incorrect information can slip through the cracks and be distributed by someone who is an editor of National Geographic. We can’t let people just rewrite our history because it fits the narrative they want to tell.
