Rep. Yvette Clarke: The Dutch owned slaves in Brooklyn as recently as 1898 [VIDEO]
Daily Caller ^ | Sept 5, 2012 | Staff

Posted on 09/05/2012 6:31:10 PM PDT by expat1000

A Democratic congresswoman from Brooklyn appears to believe that slavery existed in her district until 1898.

Against the advice of her party’s leadership, Rep. Yvette Clarke appeared on “The Colbert Report” on Tuesday for one of host Stephen Colbert’s occasional “Better Know a District” segments. After getting in a few digs at Brooklyn, Colbert asked Clarke, who is currently serving her third term in the House, what she would say to her district if she could go back to 1898 in a time machine.

“Set me free!” Clarke said.

“From?” Colbert asked.

“Slavery.”

Trying to hold back his laughter, Colbert said he didn’t realize there was slavery in Brooklyn in 1898. “I believe there was,” Clarke responded.

So Colbert, bastion of Democrat group-think, laughs at the idea this might be true, instead of being repulsed by the possibility as I a Conservative am.

I sure hope Rep. Yvette Clarke realizes how he dismissed her concerns on such a grave important issue as this.

I don’t know the first thing about Clarke, but I can assure her that she and I share the same view on this topic.

Some “energy” guy was talking.....I channel serfed and ran across it.....made me sick so I changed channel....before I did the guy said something about jobs that won’t be “outsourced”. Some old lady turned to the woman next to her and, you could read her lips, asked “What’s outsourced mean?” And they get to vote.

If I was speaking to anyone who’s a democrat I’d ask “How does it feel knowing your guy can only win if idiots are in the party with you? Are you a lot like those other people?”

It had been my thought that pockets of slavery probably did last beyond the Civil War. I thought that she might be addressing some issue that had slid in under the radar.

Reading the back end of the article, it’s clear I was off base.

Thanks for bringing it to my attention. I was wrong.

I agree, she is an idiot.

Make you wonder what the Dutch did that gripes her enough for her to lie about them like this.

When I saw the headline, I thought I would be reading about a historian or at least a social researcher uncovering evidence of a covert ring like there is among some Asian and Middle Eastern gangs.

Agitation against Southern slavery was stronger in Brooklyn than in New York, and under Republican leadership the city was fervent in the Union cause in the Civil War. A great victory arch at Grand Army Plaza was built after the war, and a smaller monument was built downtown to Abolitionist leader Henry Ward Beecher, pastor at Brooklyn’s Plymouth Church.

This is true. The Emancipation Proclamation did nothing to address the legal status of slaves in the northern states, of whom there were still remnants at the time of the civil war. Many of the northern states took a gradual approach to abolition, for example barring the sale or importation of slaves, but allowing existing slaves to be "grandfathered in," as it were. I do not know that any such existed as late as 1898, however.

Most people do not know that most of the states in the Northeast were slave states at one time. The only exception of which I am certain is Pennsylvania. Notable civil rights pioneer Sojourner Truth was born into slavery in the Hudson river valley of New York.

Hey, I’m human. If someone wants to write me off because I made a mistake, they’ll have plenty of excuses to over time.

I don’t mind owning up to them. I try not to goof up, but hey, it’s going to happen once in a while. When you do, you admit it, apologize, and move on.

Looks like we’re in good company, you and I. Thanks for the note.

Give the Dutch a break. Due to language barriers they probably didn't hear about the Civil War or Emancipation Proclamation until the early 1900’s.

So kind of like the Japanese soldiers holding out until the 1970’s on remote Philippians islands; the Dutch may have been holding slaves.

I appreciate the note. It touched on some issues I hadn’t given thought to before. The ‘grandfathered in issue’ was one.

After reading your comments, I tried to Google ‘last known slave in the United States’. I ran into this article.

It’s an interesting article, if you’re going to believe all of it. I certainly can’t vouch for the veracity.

One interesting aspect, was the possible inception of ‘backsliding’, a religious term meant to reference a Christian who had slid back into sin. This article puts a new slant on that.

I had thought that grandfathered in people might easily live until the 1900s, only 35 years after new laws shortly after the Emancipation Proclamation.

At any rate, check this out. You may find it interesting.

The joy of gerrymandered districts by race. We get ignorant and historically illiterate unRepresentatives in rotten boroughs full of non-citizens.
The Dutch lost control of NY in July 1673. Slavery in NY State was slowly phased out in from the 1780s onwards, with slavery by birth ending in 1799. NY became a free state on July 4, 1827. I doubt anyone born a slave in NY was alive in 1898.
No wonder she voted for a healthcare bill no one read. Clarke hasn’t read anything.

“Some old lady turned to the woman next to her and, you could read her lips, asked “What’s outsourced mean?” And they get to vote.”

Actually, it’s a reasonable question. (Although the context might have made the meaning clearer.) “Outsourcing” refers to any contracting out of work — whether to foreign or domestic companies. Although, in context, the speaker probably was referring to outsourcing to foreign companies (I’m guessing). In that case, the more precise term would be “off-shoring”

Given that it was an “energy” guy, speaking (I assume) at the DNC convention, he could have been prevaricating. He could promise not to “outsource” — yet still “off-shore” the work to a foreign subsidiary. Maybe the old lady suspected energy guy of parsing words, and just wanted to nail down his promises.

You’re welcome. I had to look over much of the site and even followed a book ad to Amazon before I could be sure. Like I said, someone put really a lot of work into this - site, books, etc., and a lot of it is quite subtle, but there is simply too much that is over the top.

I suspect every religion has one nut job out there that has declared jihad on it. There’s one that has targeted my church, and the guy is obsessed with making sure everyone knows..., if you catch my drift. What folks wind up knowing is that this guy is way too fixated on the matter.

If you don’t like a church, move on. Quit altogether or find another one you like. Nobody is forcing you to stay and love it.

I try to be careful, but this one did slip in under the radar.

Thanks again for your help.

Little known piece of history: John Adams, second President of the US and firmly anti-slavery, was himself briefly a slave owner. He was given the “gift” of a young black woman. He “owned” her for only the length of time required to draw up her manumission papers.

As a native Marylander of German extraction and having been raised a fifteen-minute walk from the Mason-Dixon line, I have always been fascinated by the nation's history regarding slavery and the Civil War. The more one learns, the more complicated the overall picture becomes.

I think that, the more time and distance we can put between ourselves and our racist national past, the better; but I have little tolerance indeed for sanctimonious liberals who know nothing of their own history... which makes Rep. Clarke a case in point.

I spent from the age of three to fourteen living about two miles from George Washington Carver's old slave farm, itself about three miles west of Diamond Grove, Missouri.

I visited it a number of times, and can still see it in my mind 43 years from the last time I was there.

I've walked pretty much the whole farm, visited the on-site cemetery, the trees where Carver relatives were hung by their thumbs, or worse.

In my youth I was somewhat inquisitive about race.  My grandparents explain to me that everyone should be judged on their actions, not preconceived notions.  That has pretty much been my guideline when dealing with others of any race throughout my life.

Regarding slavery, it was the Southern Democrats who fought to preserve it.  After the war they formed the KKK.  The South remained a solid Democrat block, denying Blacks rights for another hundred years.  Eisenhower forced Orval Faubus to allow Blacks into Little Rock High in the late 1950s, by nationalizing the National Guard there.  Eisenhower was a Republican and Faubus a Democrat.  Kennedy did the same thing in Mississippi against George Wallace, another Democrat.

Not until Richard Nixon in the late 1960s, did the South Crack and move toward becoming a Republican region.

When civil rights legislation was introduced, the Republicans didn't sign on in mass, because they assessed the legislation to be unnecessary.  They believed all citizens were already covered by existing laws, and they were.  Still, it isn't widely know that the Democrats couldn't pass that legislation on their own.  Many Democrats opposed it because of their racial bias.  Ultimately, that legislation passed because enough Republicans signed on to it, to push it over the top.  I think they were mistaken to do so.

When it came to civil rights marches and the reactions by local governments across the South, it wasn't Republicans doing it.

When abortion 'rights' were pushed, the efforts leader stated that it would be used as a tool to keep the Black population in it's place.  (I'm paraphrasing that, so it's not an exact quote and the meaning may in fact be skewed to an extent.)  None the less, there was a pronounce racial quotient to the effort.  And the Democrats bought into the movement lock stock and barrel.  The inordinate number of Black humans that were never born as a result of readily available abortion, can in some terms be compared to genocide.  The presence of Blacks in our nation today, is considerably smaller than it should be.  This, the Democrats proudly support to this very day, but supporting abortion on demand.  Republicans value the life of the Black unborn.  We would like to see those kids born.

Who gets hurt the most when Leftists screw with our economic system?  It's always the Blacks.

Despite all this, Black vote for the people who would eradicate them without any shame whatsoever.  I realize that's a bit of an overkill statement, but that is the exact end result of what the Democrats advocate.

Of course this also suppresses the number of White children that are born too.  And that's part of the reason why illegal immigrants are allowed into the nation.  We're not reproducing in the numbers we need to be, so alternative bodies have to be found.

Abortion is the cancer that kills and destroys.  The Democrat Party, continues doing what it has done best for nearly 200 years, making humanity worse.

Big deal. In 2000 it was discovered that the pastor of the First Unitarian-Universalist Church of Westboro, MA, was keeping a Asian sex slave locked in his basement.
