Define successful?

To me they succeeded in breaking the mental chains and fighting back against their oppressors as well as setting a precedent for future generations. The succeeded in not only scaring the hell out of white people, but kikling some too.

U seem hell bent on using the term unsuccessful and attaching it to some i ur black heroes to diminish them?
Why the resistance to blacks taking PRIDE in a black slave rebellion on U.S. soil where blacks gained their freedom on the battlefield?

Oh, and I assure you, I am well aware of John Horse (whom I've already referenced) as well as the 2nd Seminole War, fought over a black woman. I take pride in not only my racial heritage, but my tribal (African-American) heritage as well.

Bye.


See a thread I started around the same time as this ine titled 'slave documents' before accussing me of not mentioning john horse or the Seminole wars. The war the u.s. never wants to talk about.

To the contrary. You seem hell bent with dogs nipping at your heels on denying TRUE BLACK success - FREEDOM won the battlefield by the Black Seminoles.

I do not define "success" in slave era as killing a couple white people, then being hung by the neck until dead, as well as (in the case of Nat Turner) hundreds of blacks who didn't take part in the FAILED rebellion being murdered as well. ALL the Black Seminoles were granted their freedom from slavery and NONE was hung. None of the Florida slaves who fought white soldiers on the battlefield with the Black Seminoles and later surrendered, was killed. Not one.

If you wish to wax raphsodic over brothers, no matter how brave or freedom-loving who lead failed rebellions, that's your perogative. I prefer to push into the forefront those who made a difference.

Like the Black Seminoles you seem to despise.

Although I never accused you of anything (have NO idea where you got that from), thanks for the mention of the obvious: The 2nd Seminole War is the war that the U.S. NEVER wants to talk about.

And from the brickbats to my even mentioning their name on this thread, the U.S. ain't the "only" one who does not EVER want to talk about it.

Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture

Which stories about our ancestors and us do you think will be displayed at the new NMAAHC? Will it reveal stories like the one Kadijah mentioned about the Black Seminoles or will it be the same ones that America is comfortable talking about?

I believe this Museum is scheduled to open in 2015. I received a fundraising letter in the mail and some of it goes like this...

"Of course, the Museum will have major exhibitions on slavery, Reconstruction, and the Civil Rights Movement, and also will commemorate history-making events such as the election of America's first black president.

In addition, you will learn about African American pioneers in so many fields -- from renowned inventor George Washington Carver to crusading journalist Ida B. Wells-Barnett. You will experience the richness and diversity of contemporary African American history and culture by gaining fresh insights on great achievers in fields as diverse as science, sports, education, music, government, social policy and more.

But telling the story of how African Americans made our nation what it is today requires much more.

We want to break new ground -- unearthing forgotten (what about never revealed?) aspects of history and bringing stories to life that have never been adequately told. (wonder what stories those would be? keep reading...) Your bookmarks (sent free) provide a glimpse of the remarkable stories our Museum will tell. And here is the list of bookmarks for groundbreaking news...

Frederick Douglass
Ida B. Wells-Barnett
George Washington Carver
Madam C. J. Walker

When you visit the National Museum of African American History and Culture, I want you to be awe-inspired by what you see and learn . . . to meet fascinating, intrepid individuals nearly lost to history ... and say to yourself: "I never knew that." (lol)

Perhaps it will be the story of a blind 10-year-old slave who was the first African American to perform at the White House. His name was Thomas Greene Wiggins, and he was a piano prodigy who played classical compositions for President James Buchanan in 1859."

Would you donate to it?

Black and Latino custodial workers @ the Capitol Bldg said it was degrading to clean up the debris left by white supremacist who violently stormed the Capitol Bldg. They even had to clean up smeared feces. One staffer said they were used to cleaning up after white supremacist (referring to racist Congressional members). Those who were there that day feared for their life b/c they weren't given any protection.
Mother Jones posted a list of "law makers" nationwide who promoted/assisted in the insurrection on our government. ALL should be ousted, stripped of pensions, charged with sedition and felony murder.
If black folks are present at a crime, whether they participated or not, they're charged with as many violations as white folks can conjure up. Felony murder is top of their list. Why not for white domestic terrorist?
25,000 National Guardsmen are set up to protect for Biden/Harris inauguration! Authorities are AGAIN saying that white domestic terrorist are the largest threat in American and to the democratic process.
NOT Black Lives Matter protestors, NOT even foreign terrorist, but American grown white men who are angry about all the white privilege they have.
Twitter is now locking accounts for unusual activity when there is no unusual activity. Apparently if you post to much to soon, it triggers their spider hairs. Never mind that it's (or was) a platform to post information and opinions, now it's just a flat bed from the ghost-of-trump-past. Jack Dorsey/Twitter should be charged with giving trump the media to incite a resurrection against the United States government.
