You and me, basically. You explained that it's an explanation that's been unfortunately necessary before.

I thought it was called "Fraktur"...

In the nineteenth century, the use of antiqua alongside Fraktur increased, leading to the Antiqua-Fraktur dispute, which lasted until the Nazis abandoned Fraktur in 1942. Since it was so common, all kinds of blackletter tend to be called fraktur in German.
