    Slave Revolts w/ Author Greg Grandin, "The Empire of Necessity"

    in Education

    Toni Morrison said, "The Empire of Necessity is scholarship at it's best. Greg Grandin's deft penetration into the marrow of the slave industry is compelling, brilliant, and necessary."


    Join The Gist of Freedom Tonight www.blackHistoryBLOG.com as we discuss the book  "The Empire of Necessity" with author Greg Grandin!


    Tryal was the ship whose human “cargo” had rebelled, murdered their owner along with a score of other whites and demanded that Cerreño sail them back to Africa. Fifty years later, Melville made Delano’s story the basis of a short novel that he called “Benito Cereno.” Grandin writes  about the unknowable inner lives of the Revolters, a reticence that elevates the novella far above the antislavery manifestoes of  the slavery era in which the enslaved appear in one form of caricature or another. He conveyed the horror of slavery while looking unblinkingly at the reciprocal fury of self-liberated slaves toward those who had enslaved them.


    Grandin …. reconstructing the world through which the revolters moved toward their strike at freedom, he has done more than any previous scholar — and there have been many — to illuminate the context of the work in which Melville confronted slavery without presuming to comprehend its vast ramifications. “The Empire of Necessity” is also a significant contribution to the largely impossible yet imperative effort to retrieve some trace of the countless lives that slavery consumed.

    I was just thinking....I'm sick and tired of being sick and tired!

    in Politics

    AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!


    I am tired of the news of the day being another black man or woman is murdered. I'm tired of hearing the excuse that this is another case of a rouge cop, an over-zealous neighborhood watch person or the excuse of a system that needs to reform.


    It's the same old "lone gunman theory" they have had us swallow for decades.


    Can't we open our eyes and call it like it is? TERRORISM!


    Yes, it is terrorism plan and simple and it doesn't matter if they are in a uniform and wear a badge or cary a flag and scream death of all infidels!


    Then maybe we can get some funding and the military will fight for OUR freedom!


    When a black person can't walk, drive, run or jog in any neighborhood without harrasment, inquisition, beating or murder then that's terrorism.


    Tell Me:


    How is walking home from the store a death sentence?


    When has running from the police been a death sentence?


    When has speeding or talking too loud or questioning authority been a reason for our demise?


    Since the frist black man and woman came over in the TransAtlantic slave trade we have been targeted for annhililation. Genocide is not just the act it is the idea and the plan then the the inmplimentation.


    Genocide can be mass extermination like we witnessed in Rwanda or Armenia, or it can be a slow systematic elimination of a hateful and sadisitc society as we see in America.


    I'm sick of it! We don't need to sit down and sing Kum-Ba-Yah we need to be proactive!


    What do you think?

    Can You Drive People Away From Christ?

    in Christianity

    One common objection to using the law in sharing the gospel is that it will drive people away from Christ. Tonight, Chris will discuss if this concern is biblically valid.

    SHUT UP Money

    in Christianity

    The world says money talks but unfortunately it has shut the mouths of the church. Money has seduced the church to turn away from the truth. You can't serve two masters; either you will love one or hate the other. God did not create you to be servant to money. Money makes a great servant, but a horrible master. You shall no longer be a slave to money! Don't compromise the gospel for your own selfish gain. No longer will you deny Jesus but be bold in these last days knowing that He's never seen the righteous forsaken or His seed begging bread. We serve Jesus!

    Racism in America: Is it real? Is it exaggerated? Can it be extinguished?

    in Politics Conservative

    Showtime 8AM-10AM EST


    Events in our recent past has once again brought this ugly topic back to the headlines and  studios of the mainstream media outlets. It seems everyone from the President of the United States to the person sleeping under a bridge is either a racist or a victim of racism. Every day somewhere (just about everywhere) we hear of gatherings of people screaming and committing criminal acts in protest of unfair justice and "slave-like" treatment. 


    Preachers, politicians, community organizers and more continue to use racism as a tool in their war chest to further advance their own existence.


    This topic really has us all "In the Pickle Barrel"!

    Is a Lawyer in the House? Malpractice Claim Against The Cochran Firm Frauds

    in Politics Progressive

    Our guest for April 23 at 9pmEST claims being another victim of The (Johnny) Cochran Firm fraud on "Human Rights Demand" channel. Call-in number is 347.857.3293. Mr. Vance alleges the law firm defrauded him and worked behind his back for his defendant, a physician. The cancer survivor hired the deviant Cochran Firm attorneys to file lawsuit against his doctor, who misdiagnosed his condition, causing his cancer to reach stage 3 by the time another doctor checked him two years later. Vance seeks an attorney to file a malpractice lawsuit against his corrupt former attorneys who he feels deliberately threw the fight for justice against his negligent former doctor. This show was originally scheduled for April 6. If you've ever been defrauded by your attorney, especially The Cochran Firm frauds, please join the conversation tonight. We know there are genuine attorneys who hate what unethical frauds are doing to disgrace their profession. Please listen and prepare to help Vance by filing a malpractice case against a law firm that seems to defraud people of color intentionally. Many other lawsuits against The Cochran Firm are listed at the below url.

    Black Reconstruction #LaShawnAllenMuhammad 323.927.2913

    in Business

    Hosted By: LaShawn Allen-Muhammad


    Who were the first Black Elected Officials? During the month of November, as the country gears up to re-elect or vote in the next wave of politicians, Black Reconstruction will revisit the Reconstruction era to pay homage to the Black Men who came before Obama.  During this tumultuous time, Blacks not only established townships, they also positioned themselves to be an integral part of government.   


    At a Glance.. In 1855, Brownhelm Township, founded by Col. Henry Brown,  gained notoriety throughout the U.S, when the township elected an African-American to government office.  The NY Syracuse Daily Journal, May 31, 1855 reported that John Mercer Langston was a fugitive slave who had been elected clerk.  Brownhelm's early residents had long been known for their strong anti-slavery stance; and Col. Henry Brown's home on the Lake Shore was often a final stop on the Underground Railroad, before reaching Canada by boat.    African-American Firsts: Government


    Local elected official: John Mercer Langston, 1855, town clerk of Brownhelm Township, Ohio.


    State elected official: Alexander Lucius Twilight, 1836, the Vermont legislature.


    Governor  (appointed): P.B.S. Pinchback served as governor of Louisiana from Dec. 9, 1872-Jan. 13, 1873, during impeachment proceedings against the elected governor.


    U.S. Representative: Joseph Rainey became a Congressman from South Carolina in 1870 and was reelected four more times. 


    U.S. Senator: Hiram Revels became Senator from Mississippi from Feb. 25, 1870, to March 4, 1871, during Reconstruction.  


    There have only been a total of five black senators in U.S. history: the remaining two are Blanche K. Bruce [1875-1881] and Barack Obama
