Black History Month Great Black Person #19 of 28

Black History Month Great Black Person #19 of 28:
The Black Angry Bird

Anyone who has played Angry Birds knows that the birds are angry because those dastardly green pigs stole their eggs... but for the black bird, it's more than just that. Unfortunately, avian civil rights haven't progressed as much as you may have thought. Despite their heroic efforts against the evil pigs, black birds are still subject to Jim "Crow" laws and are forced to sit at the back of the slingshot. Despicable. Lucky for the other birds, these injustices haven't hindered the black bird's effort in fighting the enemy. Every day, the black bird "swallows" his pride and takes out his frustration in a healthy way...  by exploding and killing everything within reach. So kudos to you, black Angry Bird, for concentrating your anger in a constructive manner and for being by far the most effective bird in the game.
