Interesting stories but always blaming white man for everything

History told in a unique and insightful way. Funny commentary to lighten up the mood even though topics discussed are quite heavy and dark - hence the name. Lovely host that makes this podcast so interesting, but she can’t stop blaming white man for everything even though some stories have nothing to do with race or gender. This makes these history stories more subjective and it’s twisting the facts to fit the woke culture agenda. Of course there are crimes were truly racially motivated and should be addressed as such. Messed up things were happening and are still happening. But repeating white man are the worst in almost every episode and that people of color and women are always the victims is getting out of hand. When applicable to the story, I would like to hear more background of the situation at that time of marginalised groups, not only angry commentary attacking “white men” with no real reason.
