    :qqb005: :SuN029: :10100: :em4000: I saw this documentary yesterday. It is a story of different families whose ancestors were violently removed from their homes in the 'Jim Crow' south. It deals with what these families went thru just to get the existing communities to acknowledge what happened. Which of course was met with stiff resistance and in some cases violent. As in Forsythe County, Georgia. :yesno: As a person who is easily riled when watching things like these. ( I wanted to get my carbine and a thousand rounds of ammo and do damage to some rednecks after watching this. lol ) I would advise you take valium 1st :lol: :lol:

    I think that there a book on this too. I was reading this book about Jim Crow and one account of people of Jim Crow was saying that, some white person had given them land and all and the sons of this man didn't like it and the house mysteriously burned down. Everyone tried to get out and two small children died in the fire.

    Man Jim Crowism is horrible because there are still the silent Jim Crowism these days, You know? All across tha nation.

    I feel you right here. I'll have to see if I can find this video. PBS has some good educational movies, I have to give them their props.

    Mayne, you feel me?

    Jim Crowism is still practiced though. Even though we don't have signs for whites and coloreds. It's how we are treated as blacks individually everday. But in the end we are all negroes, ya feel me?

    Hee,hee,hee-

    Much Love,

    Ooo-whee! I dont' know how I missed THIS show!

    Lawd knows, Imma PBS Junkie! lol

    However, having family roots in GA, Forsyth County is well known. Hosea Williams also put it on "Front Street" back in the 80s.

    But, I did not know about these other towns. THANKS for posting this!

    I disagree.

    We wouldn't have had the latter if it were not for the former.


    The Reconstruction Period and the "Separate But Equal" rule and the resurgence of the KKK/Jim Crow would never have existed w/o slavery.
