    MLH On Racism
    "The concept of reverse racism is flawed, if not absolutely ridiculous. Most, if not all of the negative responses from people of color toward white people, are reactions to the hatred, violence, cruelty and brutality that they were shown by white people for centuries. Much of the foundation of the modern world was built on the forced free labor of black peoples. The African Slave Trade, the institution of slavery, colonialism, its derivative systems, and the multiple holocausts throughout history, where whites used race as the defining reason to justify their oppression, conquest, and brutal treatment of non-white peoples, are how race became such a factor to begin with."

    ... Powerful post, thanks for sharing this bro. oldsoul, another excerpt:


    "...Ironically, these oppressors would try to discard this same God, who supposedly justified this brutality, in the name of Darwin, whose famous line ‘survival of the fittest’ was used to justify criminal behavior once the Bible could no longer be used as a hiding place for economic domination and evil intention. Spirituality and morality were replaced by capitalism, and with it a conscious shift of focus toward the exploitation of the vulnerable..."


    Amazing, the switch from God to Darwin, and from Spirituality/Morality to Capitalism ... Once the Bible could no longer hide evil economic exploitation.


    Peace In the Spirit of Sankofa,

    Lauryn Hill Letter Pins IRS Woes on Historical Racism

    By RJ Cubarrubia | Rolling Stone – 23 hours ago

    Lauryn Hill has penned a lengthy open letter on Tumblr, pinning her tax woes with the IRS on historical racism. The rapper and singer, who was sentenced in May to three months in prison for failing to pay taxes on approximately $1.8 million in earnings, began by going after "reverse racism" as "flawed, if not absolutely ridiculous," and tied the history of black enslavement into her opposition to the IRS. Excerpts from her letter follow below.
