    Black People : SLAVERY

    Planters of the Old South were generally far more concerned with the welfare of their slaves than were their counterparts elsewhere. This concern did not extend to white laborers, who were hired when a job was considered too exhausting or too dangerous for a black slave. Frederick Law Olmstead...

    Black People : SLAVERY

    :heart: The point is, blacks were not the only people treated like barnyard animals in the Americas. Just that too many politicians would have the country believe blacks were the only people who suffered the indignities of slavery. Man's inhumanity to man has always existed. Blacks were not alone.

    Black People : SLAVERY

    During the 1650s, over 100,000 Irish children between the ages of 10 and 14 were taken from their parents and sold as slaves in the West Indies, Virginia and New England. In this decade, 52,000 Irish (mostly women and children) were sold to Barbados and Virginia. Another 30,000 Irish men and...

    Black People : SLAVERY

    The title is always an attention getter. To begin with, anything that strips dignity from a human being is wrong; there are no grey areas. That being said, slavery has existed since before recorded history. In the USA proper, slavery only existed for 77 years. I am only trying to present facts...

    Black Spirituality Religion : What Really Happens After Death?

    I gotta say, I had some individuals who I knew when they were alive, who I really didn't like; and I hope I don't run into them again after I'm dead. A lifetime of irritation I could handle; but not an eternity. Maybe that's Hell.

    Black Spirituality Religion : What Really Happens After Death?

    Can't stay long, I'm in the middle of doing some research on slavery & it's history; and I intend to do a slavery thread soon. Anyway, I know exactly what happens after death; your **** family steals all your possessions. As far as reincarnation goes, I can't say that's what I would look forward...

    Black Spirituality Religion : CEMETERIES, BURIALS & PROPHECIES!

    I know if there's $$$$$$$, it's amazing how many family members will show up. I took care of that; my Last Will & Testament reads: Being Of Sound Mind, I Spent All The Money.

    Black Spirituality Religion : CEMETERIES, BURIALS & PROPHECIES!

    I also considered having my body sent to a cadaver farm; where you're studied as you fall apart; but I really don't want a possum chewin on my, well, you know. Anyway I'm not sure how that works. I think they just throw you in the weeds, and come back once a week to have a look. Maybe your...

    Black Spirituality Religion : CEMETERIES, BURIALS & PROPHECIES!

    Hopefully I'll die in my sleep. That's a blessed death; plus the ultimate prank on the family. My body will go to the medical school; but if I did have a conventional funeral, I'd want my eyes open to goof on people.

    Black Spirituality Religion : CEMETERIES, BURIALS & PROPHECIES!

    When I get called, my body will go to UP Medical School. When they finish poking around, my ashes will be returned to my family to be laid in the family plot. I'm OK with that. Almost forgot, the free trip to Philadelphia.:)

    Jim here; and I'm a new member, so I expect I'll step lightly until I get a feel. I have always been outspoken, but I am never rude or disrespectful. Hello to all.
