    Meritocracy - The ultimate alternative to what we live in as a people

    in Politics Conservative

    My whole young life has been spent struggling to come to grips with "GOOD OLE BOY" systems.


    Whether by WHITE AMERICA or BLACK POWER PLANTATIONS.


    At what point does what you DO or CAN DO count more than who you know or how long you can wait.


    I do NOT thrive well in good ole boy networks and/or HAND OUT based systems.


    If we are to create a Nation State for Black men and woman and I am apart of it........


    IT MUST BE A MERITOCRACY!


    PERIOD!!!

    Harriet Tubman and Quakers = Underground Railroad

    in Politics Conservative

    Tubman's organizing ability was key to her success -- she had to work with supporters on the clandestine Underground Railroad, as well as get messages to the slaves, since she met them away from their plantations to avoid detection. They usually left on a Saturday evening, as the Sabbath might delay anyone noticing their absence for another day, and if anyone did note their flight, the Sabbath would certainly delay anyone from organizing an effective pursuit or publishing a reward.


    Tubman was only about five feet tall, but she was smart and she was strong -- and she carried a long rifle. She used the rifle not only to intimidate pro-slavery people they might meet, but also to keep any of the slaves from backing out. She threatened any who seemed like they were about to leave, telling them that "dead Negroes tell no tales." A slave who returned from one of these trips could betray too many secrets: who had helped, what paths the flight had taken, how messages were passed..


    Quakers Released Slaves


     


    Not only did many Quakers release their slaves, but they saw to it that they could take care of themselves, teaching them to read and write and, in many cases, seeing that they were escorted to states or territories where they could live in freedom.


     


    Quaker John Woolman was involved with the abolitionist movement from an early date. He traveled the countryside, preaching against slavery. Woolman, born in 1720, became convinced that slavery was wrong when, at the age 20, he was asked by his employer to write a bill of sale for a slave girl. He did write it, but told his boss that he “believed slave-keeping to be a practice inconsistent with the Christian religion.” Shortly after this incident, Woodman left his job to travel and was instrumental in spreading the abolitionist message.

    The NYPD Exposed: The Most Corrupt Police Department In America?

    in Current Events

    The time has come to set the record straight on one of the most corrupt police forces in America, THE NYPD!


    Pastor Damon Richardson has had enough of the denial that has been executed not only by many in the Black Clergy but in the Black Community as a whole.


    It appears that to many are muzzled because of their fear of losing their jobs or smearing their public persona as to not have the spotlight placed on them which might cause them to lose what they have.


    It's the equivalent to the old plantations and the unwritten rules therein that are played out in the new year of 2015 that shows how far we HAVEN'T progressed.


    On the other hand we have the New York City Police Department, an agency that has a history of brutality, criminal activity and gangster-like tactics when dealing with the people of color there.


    The abuse of power, the beat downs, the killings, the exploitation and all that is executed behind a badge and a gun has reached a boiling point in the society to cause the people to be anxious and ready for a righteous revolution!


    While it would be unwise to fight this war in a manner that they will win hands down, we must be smart in our execution of it because we the people hold the power because we outnumber themby far.


    But before we attack the problem we must know exactly what the problem is and tonight we will go in on the transgressions of the New York City Police Department with fire, intensity and intelligence from a Man Of God who can articulate it like no other!


    A man to whom we know and love: Pastor Damon Richardson!


    This is truly one program that you do not want to miss!

    The Half Has Never Been Told with Edward E. Baptist, Ph.D.

    in History

    The Half Has Never Been Told: Slavery and the Making of American Capitalism


    Historian Edward E. Baptist reveals in The Half Has Never Been Told, the expansion of slavery in the first eight decades after American independence drove the evolution and modernization of the United States. In the span of a single lifetime, the South grew from a narrow coastal strip of worn-out tobacco plantations to a continental cotton empire, and the United States grew into a modern, industrial, and capitalist economy. Until the Civil War, Baptist explains, the most important American economic innovations were ways to make slavery ever more profitable. Through forced migration and torture, slave owners extracted continual increases in efficiency from enslaved African Americans. Thus the United States seized control of the world market for cotton, the key raw material of the Industrial Revolution, and became a wealthy nation with global influence.


    Told through intimate slave narratives, plantation records, newspapers, and the words of politicians, entrepreneurs, and escaped slaves, The Half Has Never Been Told offers a radical new interpretation of American history. It forces readers to reckon with the violence at the root of American supremacy, but also with the survival and resistance that brought about slavery’s end—and created a culture that sustains America’s deepest dreams of freedom.


    Edward E. Baptist is an Associate Professor in the Department of History and House Professor and Dean at the Carl Becker House at Cornell University.

    Racism Hid Behind Rose Colored Glasses in America, 1964~2008

    in Politics

    America is into rose color glasses. Americans only want to see certain things in certain ways. It may be OK to pretend we are not 50 pounds over weight. We can just buy a larger size of the same outfit. Then we don't have to face the truth. Is it never OK to wear rose colored glasses when it is about our own health and well being. It is not OK when it harms society. This country was once was young, but now we are old. America is old enough to have fixed broken from centuries ago. It is time for America face the facts of our history and grow up. Repent and fix the mistakes past and present. This is the only way we all can begin to heal. America was the land of the Indians. Whites immigrated to America and stole America from Indians. White sea Captains stole Africans and brought them to America to sell to plantation owners to use as free labor. Africans that survived the trip to America were beat into submission to obey White men. Animals and Africans had basically the same value. Property of White men. Africans were stripped of their language to prevent plotting to escape. Africans were property of Whites until 1865. Africans were freed, yet freedom for many lead to sharecropping on some of the same plantations where they slaved in bondage. When Black begin to use their skills to produce and make money, Black code laws were put in place to keep Blacks dependent on Whites. Immigrants entering America were blended into the social order of the country, putting immigrants above Africans. Africans by now were viewed very negatively by all. African either submitted to being characterized as nothing, or they were beat brutally or hung by the neck until dead and left to be seen by all other Africans who dared to not accept racism in America. After the Civil Rights Act of 1965 racism put on rose colored glasses. 2008, the glasses come off.
