Implemented my first patch on ! Thanks to the contributor :)

Bollux now supports TLS 1.3 or 1.2, both !

Just merged history into master with . Going to hold off on a v0.3 until I get bookmarks implemented, and a nice display of both. Maybe by next week?

works on with Cmder! I saw somewhere it does not work on BSD, I need to figure that out. I think I will merge the history branch into master tho...I don't know what else it needs. Besides saving to a file, but that's easy.

Standing Rock, 2016
The botched Hurricane Katrina "relief", 2014

Newark Riots, 1967
Little Rock Nine, 1953

Tulsa Massacre, 1921

there's a lot i didn't include but you get it, right? right. this isnt NEW. this has BEEN HAPPENING. this is the context and lens with which you need to adjust your sights. spare everyone your shock and disbelief because this has been happening behind since your whites arrived on this continent.
