    In the Spirit of Sankofa,




    ... Wonder if the Governor will consider a special Holiday or something to make up for having to feel shameful...

    PORTSMOUTH, N.H. (AP) — Fourteen slaves who petitioned the New Hampshire Legislature for their freedom during the Revolutionary War were granted posthumous emancipation Friday when the governor signed a largely symbolic bill that supporters hope will encourage future generations to pursue social justice.

    A group of 20 slaves who had fought in the war submitted a petition to the New Hampshire General Assembly on Nov. 12, 1779, while the war was still being fought. They argued that the freedom being sought by colonists should be extended to them, as well, and maintained that "public tyranny and slavery are alike detestable to minds conscious of the equal dignity of human nature."

    One can only wonder what goes on in these people minds?
    Always saying one thing and doing the other.

    Oh, I can go you one better:

    Mississippi just ratified the 13th Amendment to the Constitution outlawing slavery.... this year, 2013. Not just "20" but ALL the black folk in Mississippi are free, now. :news:

    Personally bro. Corvo, I continue to place, what you identify about them, on their biological status of mutant recessives of the original people:

    It doesn't look like you could find or make it back to the above discussion, so I'm providing support to my statement above.



    Peace In the Spirit of Sankofa,

    I'm not sure what you are asking me. The comment I said still stands.
    It is perhaps a poor statement if one is trying to be inclusive. Or if one is trying to create alliances with other, in order to create a united front against yurugu. But it is how I feel. Am I 100% African? No ....!

    I do hope that's OK with you....

    Of course bro. Corvo, its fine with me, why wouldn't it be? We remain brothers, comrades in arms in the struggle for our liberation, correct? My final point with this post was only to give my reasoning behind their actions and attribute it to their human status: mutant recessives.


    Peace In my friend,
