  • Apparently #NotAllBlackLivesMatter: The Very Real Slave Trade and the Deafening Media Silence

    IWB ^ | Mark Angelides
    In a society where every poor, downtrodden violent thug is mourned as a Saint when they are shot by police whilst in the commission of a crime, we should expect a somewhat larger reaction to the fact that slavery of black people is alive and well in the world. Not the idiotic “excuse-driven” slavery espoused by the Liberals (“poor man was forced to work 40 hours per week at minimum wage”), but real, actual slavery: the buying and selling of human beings, and all the horror that entails. But slavery has never been fully eradicated, despite the British naval efforts...

    The person who filmed the video of a man being forcibly removed from a United Airlines flight over the weekend says security is not to blame for the situation. "It's clearly the man's fault that security had to drag him off. He was resisting. I don't blame the security guards at all," Tyler Bridges, who captured the moment on his cellphone, told Fox Business on Tuesday.

    Here is Obama in 2015: Certainly, it wasn’t easy for those of African heritage who had not come here voluntarily and yet in their own way were immigrants themselves. There was discrimination and hardship and poverty. But, like you, they no doubt found inspiration in all those who had come before them. And they were able to muster faith that, here in America, they might build a better life and give their children something more. Here is Carson: That’s what America is about, a land of dreams and opportunity. There were other immigrants who came here in the bottom of...

    Washington Post ^ | 9/27/16 | Ishaan Tharoor
    The history of slavery in the United States justifies reparations for African Americans, argues a recent report by a U.N.-affiliated group based in Geneva. This conclusion was part of a study by the United Nations' Working Group of Experts on People of African Descent, a body that reports to the international organization's High Commissioner on Human Rights. The group of experts, which includes leading human rights lawyers from around the world, presented its findings to the United Nations Human Rights Council on Monday, pointing to the continuing link between present injustices and the dark chapters of American history.

The trope isn’t entirely Hollywood fantasy, but the reality of emerging tattoo recognition technology is closer to a dystopian tech thriller. Soon,...

    Huma Abedin, a longtime aide to Hillary Clinton, nearly began sobbing at the thought of Clinton carrying her own bags, according to a report published on Thursday. "Abedin took her duties so seriously ... that when she learned that Clinton had once carried her own bag up a flight of stairs in her aide's absence, Abedin nearly burst into tears," an unnamed source said for the story in Newsweek.Abedin began working for Clinton as a White House intern in 1996, the same year that former intern Monica Lewinsky began working for President Bill Clinton. However, her career took a different...
  • Falsehoods and Feel-Good Myths About the Underground Railroad and Harriet Tubman

    04/20/2016 10:18:38 AM PDT · by golux · 33 replies
    By making explicit or implicit connections between the Underground Railroad and Tubman's trips, and by depicting Tubman as an Underground Railroad superstar, the textbooks imply that the paramount purpose of the Underground Railroad was to launch slave-stealing expeditions. That is false. The Underground Railroad was not in the business of staging raids, and Tubman's excursions were idiosyncrasies at best. (...) The salient points that occur again and again in the textbooks' accounts of Tubman -- such as the claim that she made nineteen trips to liberate slaves, and the claim that slave-owners put a huge price on her head --...

    Patricius: The True Story of St. Patrick Before all the festivities focused on shamrocks and leprechauns and good luck wishes, there was truly something to celebrate: a man willing to stand in the gap for Jesus Christ. It was an act of defiance that changed the course of a nation. Patrick lit a fire in pagan 5th century Ireland, ushering Christianity into the country. Who was this man who became the patron saint of Ireland? Ireland was a beautiful island shrouded in terrible darkness. Warlords and druids ruled the land. But across the sea in Britain, a teen-ager was poised...

    April 1, 1854, Brush Creek, Missouri: Peter Tolton paced nearby as his wife, Martha Jane, gave birth to their second son. They named him Augustus (after his uncle), and before the month was out, the baby was baptized in nearby St. Peter's Catholic Church. Mrs. Savilla Elliot stood as Augustus' godmother.The baptism of Augustus was a bit unusual. That was because Mrs. Elliot was married to Stephen Elliot, who happened to be the "owner" of Augustus' mom and dad. Mr. and Mrs. Tolton were slaves, and their three children, Charley, Augustus and Anne, were born into slavery. The slave...

    Stories about Black and Native American connections are rarely told within the narrow historical context shared in classrooms, history books and around family tables, but there are some details that reveal a more complete story of enslavement in the Americas. In the 1830s, the enslavement of Blacks was established in the Indian Territory, the region that would become Oklahoma. By the late 19th century, when over half a million Africans were enslaved in the South, the southern Native American societies of that region had come to include both enslaved Blacks and small numbers of free Black people. Though the harsh...

    he anti-Israel Boycott Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement has been the focus of fierce debate over its calls to boycott the State of Israel. Its critics claim it is motivated by pure anti-Semitism - noting that only the Jewish state faces such a campaign, and not serial human rights violators such as Iran, North Korea, Sudan and others. BDS supporters, on the other hand, claim they are motivated by concern for human rights, and that the singling out of the world's only Jewish country is a mere coincidence. So, who's right? To find out, Jewish activist Ami Horowitz decided to...

    The Towie fan who fled ISIS terrorists with her toddler son could be sent back to Syria by Turkish authorities. Tareena Shakil, 25, ran away to Syria last year after telling relatives she was going on holiday to Spain with her 16-month-old son Zaheem. But she escaped back across the Turkish border after, she claims, the militants tried to force her into marrying a one-legged fighter. However, instead of being deported to Britain, Shakil, from Burton-on-Trent, Staffordshire, might be sent back to Syria and into the clutches of ISIS. (snip) Shakil is being held at a facility on the border...

    Legal eagle Alan Dershowitz is not taking the accusation that he bedded a teenage sex slave lying down. The former Harvard Law School professor has filed a sworn statement in Miami federal court "to protect his reputation" against what he calls "outrageously false" and "contemptible" allegations. Dershowitz also vowed to file disciplinary complaints against the attorneys representing his accuser, who has been identified as 30-year-old Virginia Roberts. But before Dershowitz could, the lawyers — Paul Cassell and Bradley Edwards — sued him for defamation.
