Vice-President Mike Pence’s tweet on 2nd February that was aimed at honoring Black History Month has irked some ire as it received the mixed reviews more importantly negative ones.
The twitter users believe it falls short from honoring any of the blackmen who put up great resistance against the slavery.
The tweet acknowledged President LncoIn and his efforts for abolishing slavery in the United States of America but failed to mention any worth-mentioning black man that took great pains too.
#BlackHistoryMonth begins, we remember when Pres. Lincoln submitted the 13th Amendment, ending slavery, to the states #NationalFreedomDay

Vice President’s tributary tweet was disapproved by the many on twitter who start calling it hollow.
Maybe remember when ACTUAL BLACK PEOPLE did stuff? Besides Ben Carson + Omarosa of course. And um, about the 13th amendment… oh nevermind. https://t.co/dIPV6YAeS4

"As Black History Month begins, let's somehow find a way to make this about white people I think blacks should be thankful for." -Mike Pence
