For one, Southern Whites resented their free labor being taken away.
AND they didn't like it that the Freedmen's Bureau also allocated monies towards Black schools/colleges.
Those monies along with financial support from Black churches and the American Missionary Assoc. all combined to help start the very first HBCUs.
These fore-runner Black schools & colleges preceded the Federal "Land-Grant" HBCUs.
So, them White folks sho didn't like it that money was going towards educating their former slaves.
Then they started the "Share-Cropping" system which kept Southern Blacks poor even though many could finally read and count themselves.
"Mr. Charlie" still cheated them out of their money and kept them in "economic slavery" through debts they could never work enough to pay off.
yup it sure does, although it's Whites that are truly the lazy ones!
yep.. it always was.. even as a kid I was amazed at how folks whose entire
existence had been about work.. could be lazy. It's amazing what you can
do with writing and images... how you can completely change whats what.
We see a derogatory image however the statements about the White House
Have returned and are at present the national and future policy.
Conspiracy researcher retired Naval Intel. William Cooper (Behold a Pale Horse) stated in regards to the belief systems of those ruling 2% behind the scenes,
"It makes no difference wether you believe in what they believe in, they will implement their ideologies no matter how bizzarre they may seem.
As the fact that there are only 4 or 5 liberals while the rest are bipartisan neocons, and sellouts, in Washington, thse belief systems regarding Black folks are being and will be implemented.
The question remains, as large segents of the Black middle class fall into poverty, and large segments of the working poor fall into destitution,
Will we be creative enough to have manifest a National Black safety net for those, whose unemployment, and welfare will be cut off, food stamps stopped, and section 8 assistance abolished?
good point.. I had been thinking about that too.. about whats going to happen
now that the jobs are really gone.. Here in Oakland, the bomb has not really
hit yet.. it won't until around March when one of the largest employers,
Toyota, shuts down its plant.. there are about 5000 workers there.. my father
is one of them.. been working in that building since 1967.. when it was GM.
..but there are about 50,000 jobs associated with that plant.. and many of
those jobs are unskilled labor.. they don't translate over into any other
field.. the Bay Area will be devastated.. especially since those workers are
mostly black and latino.. My father can retire.. but those other folks are just
out of work.. and there's no work to replace those jobs.. they're going to
have to move.. and the Bay is going to become another Orange County.. where
the rich and well-to-do.. all those that have money anyway.. are going to
settle.. I think folks have got to get out of this single-family-home concept
and start banding together.. living in larger groups.. start thinking in terms
of two families per home.. changing the interior architecture.. changing the
social attitudes.. moving to a more cooperative dynamic from the individualistic
impulse that unifies all the different races and classes of folks in the US..
me.. mine.. I.. has got to change to us.. ours.. we.. otherwise, it's going to
There is no reason to post this.
No reason at all.
No reason that you can think of.. but as is evidenced by the existence of this
post and resulting conversation, I'm sure you now recognize that their are minds
besides your own. at the same time.. I can understand your feelings.. I've been
there.. but as you mature, you will become strong enough to face these kinds
of things. You may even realize that it's necessary that you do.. You just keep living, you'll see.
