BLACK Slave Owners (via ELLIOT LAKE News & Views)

So Rev Al and Jesse, do the decendants of the black masters get money too?

During [America's] period of slavery, many freed blacks worked for years to purchase the freedom of family members. But a great many freemen became slave masters themselves, and for the same reason as whites--to make use of slave labor for the sake of profits. Larry Koger writes, "By and large, Negro slaveowners were darker copies of their white counterparts." Following are excerpts from Chapter 6 of his book, Black Slaveowners: Free Black Slave … Read More

Yes Virginia, WHITE Slavery Did Exist (via ELLIOT LAKE News & Views)

White slaves? That will really anger the self loathin liberal dudes!
Yes Virginia, WHITE Slavery Did Exist By Michael A. Hoffman […] When White servitude is acknowledged as having existed in America, it is almost always termed as temporary “indentured servitude” or part of the convict trade, which, after the Revolution of 1776, centered on Australia instead of America. The “convicts” transported to America under the 1723 Waltham Act, perhaps numbered 100,000. The indentured servants who served a tidy little period of 4 to 7 years polishing the master’ … Read More

Africa - World's Begging Bowl (via ELLIOT LAKE News & Views)

33.5 to 78 million?

By Kevin Myers Irish Independent News No! It will not do. Even as we see African states refusing to take action to restore something resembling civilisation in Zimbabwe, the begging bowl for Ethiopia is being passed around to us, yet again. It is nearly 25 years since Ethiopia's (and Bob Geldof's) famous Feed The World campaign, and in that time Ethiopia's population has grown from 33.5 million to 78 million today. So why on earth should I do any … Read More

BART Officer Will Get Railroaded (via The Philosophical Cop Police Blog)

I couldn't resist the pun.  Seriously though, read this.  Now, I have watched that video online.  I have also seen the officer's somewhat odd behavior following the shooting.  And I think he made a mistake.  I think he blew it big time. But murder?  Right in front of all those witnesses? I doubt it. Keep in mind what the geniuses in that article are alleging.  For this to be MURDER, the cop would have to be more than careless, and more than stupi … Read More

The City Of Philly To Embrace Criminals

That's great Philly, as if your crime is not bad already, your city officials want to welcome illegal aliens. The deal that was made with ICE is getting results, illegals are being deported. Who cares if an illegal is found out due to a parking ticket? I guess some prefer they murder first. And the meeting was in Spanish, but English speakers could get headphones to hear the translation! What a load of dung.

Philadelphia is expected to end the arrangement that permits federal immigration agents to scrutinize the city's computerized list of arrests, including country of origin and other data, Everett Gillison, the deputy mayor for public safety, said Sunday.

His announcement, which followed an hour of public testimony from immigrants about their fears and mistrust of the police, drew chants of Si, se puede! - Yes, we can! - from a mostly Latino audience that also included members of the city's Asian communities and a contingent of suburban supporters from the Central Baptist Church of Wayne.

Organized by a coalition of proimmigrant groups, including Juntos and the New Sanctuary Movement, the standing-room-only meeting took place in the basement of Annunciation Church of the Blessed Virgin Mary on South 10th Street. It was conducted mostly in Spanish, with electronic headsets available to permit simultaneous translation into English.
