Ever heard of Stephen Girard? Probably not. Yet when he died in 1831 Stephen Girard was the richest man in America. Why have you not heard of him? Well, he’s been dropped into the controlled media’s memory hole. In spite of the fact that Girard was a selfless man who risked his own life to help treat yellow fever victims in Philadelphia, donated his huge wealth to charity and civic purposes, sacrificed vast wealth rather than cash in the loans he had made to our government in the War of 1812 to avert federal bankruptcy and defeat in the war…you don’t hear about Girard. Girard, you see, in spite of all these virtuous deeds was a bad man, a very bad man…for he left a large fortune to fund Girard College on 42 acres in the middle of Philadelphia, with the specific instruction in his will that Girard College would provide housing and schooling to “white orphan boys” from the age of six to eighteen. In the August 18, 2010 Jamie Kelso Show, Kelso reads “the rest of the story” on Girard from the January 1991 number of Instauration magazine. The rest of the story includes the fact that this all-White college (meaning a primary and secondary school, in the French sense, rather than a college in the current sense) is now effectively all-Black and non-White. How did this happen?
