    Washingtons of Wessyngton Plantation Part 2: with John F. Baker, Jr.

    in History

    The Washingtons of Wessyngton Plantation: Stories of My Family’s Journey to Freedom with John F. Baker Jr.


    Genealogy expert John F. Baker Jr. was born in 1962, in Springfield, Tennessee and has lived his entire life just a few miles from Wessyngton Plantation, in a town populated by hundreds of descendants of its slaves. His book, The Washingtons of Wessyngton Plantation: Stories of My Family’s Journey to Freedom, was published by Atria, a division of Simon & Schuster.  When Baker was in the seventh grade, he discovered the story of his ancestors when he saw a photograph of four former slaves in his social studies textbook.  Months later he learned that they were his grandmother’s paternal grandparents, Emanuel and Henny Washington, who were once enslaved on Wessyngton Plantation.  The plantation was founded in 1796 by Joseph Washington, a distant cousin of President Washington.  He has interviewed dozens of individuals ranging from 80 to 107 years old to collect their oral histories.  He studied more than 11,000 documents to trace the lives of his ancestors, the Washington family and more than 300 other African Americans enslaved on Wessyngton Plantation, the largest tobacco plantation in America. For more than thirty years through extensive historical research, Baker has created a groundbreaking work in African American history and American history.

    Why are blacks jumping off democrat plantation and into arms Trump?

    in Politics Conservative

    A black Atlanta woman supporting Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump explained in a video that she can’t believe she ever supported the Democratic party, and threatened to divorce her husband if he didn’t vote “Trump gives me real hope and change, not fake hope and change,” the woman, a self-described Democrat, starts off saying in a rant posted to YouTube..


    “Trump gives me real hope and change, not fake hope and change,” the woman, a self-described Democrat, starts off saying in a rant posted to YouTube.


    “I never thought I’d be saying these words about the country,” she continued. “Democrats don’t speak about the country but I’ve woken up, I’ve seen the truth and the truth is Trump, I believe in this guy to make our country better because our country is going to hell!”


     


    Hardaway and Richardson basically said that they support him because they want America to be "great" again, and that they support his plan to stop immigration by building giant wall at the border because they feel immigration is a major problem. They have continued to tout the virtues of The Donald as a presidential candidate whenever they get a chance.

    Plantation Literacy : Africa The Orginal Plantation

    in Real Estate

    Today on "It's My House" we shall continue our series on Plantation Literacy 101. 


    Our topic today is:  "Africa - The Original Plantation"


    For those of you who have missed the "definition" of PLANTATION it is a "farm system that has been monetized".


    Africa via its almost infinite "plantation systems" have been a money maker for many people in many nations. Just to name a few:



    Coffee Plantations
    Tea Plantations
    Rubber Plantations
    Diamonds Mines (Mines are "Underground Plantations")
    Gold Mines


    We shall explain "The 1 Mile Radius Rule" plus we shall give some food for thought when it comes to race.


    White Supremacy Redefined.........when black people do not take advantage of the opportunites that they are surrounded by and protect and regulate those opportunities, then someone else comes in and does so.

    Do Black Lives Matter in America?

    in US Government

    It is 2016 and the primary targets in US schools for being beaten like former US plantation slaves are Black American schoolboys, followed by Black American schoolgirls (https://m.youtube.com/#/watch?v=CBgX-loGr1I), although, together these two populations make up a small percentage of the nations entire school population.

    Join The Hitting Stops Here! in supporting an end to slave-like beatings of schoolchildren and teens at the hands of educators and other school authorities, replacing this barbaric practice with discipline methodologies used in top-performing schools, where all forms of "pain-based behavior management" are prohibited and frowned upon.

    Tune-in on the last day of Black American History Month to find out whether or not black lives matter in America, by taking a look at the evidence:
