Didn’t you know African slaves built the eastern seaboard, the centers of trade, banking, commerce, and manufacturing? Who do you think built our great cities? Our industrial centers, our roads, bridges, tunnels, highways, dams, canals, suburbs with millions of homes and all the infrastructure that stretches across this country from California to New Jersey.

Who do you think trailblazed and conquered the west? Who cleared the forests and laid down the foundations for civilization in the middle of nowhere? From the Cumberland gap, over the Appalachian Mountains, across the prairies, across the Mississippi, the Missouri, through the deserts and over the Rockies. This was done by African slaves!

Who gave you the car, the plane, the train, the transistor, the phone, the television, medicine, vaccines, satellites, the Internet and space travel? African Slaves!

Be Greatful you Selfish Fuck.

Don’t believe the lie that all Slavery did was bastardize half the country, slow down progress, and enrich a handful of Southern Planters and Aristocratic families! It’s a lie!!!

Slaves built America dammit.

WASHINGTON POST – The history of slavery in the United States justifies reparations for African Americans, argues a recent report by a U.N.-affiliated group based in Geneva.

This conclusion was part of a study by the United Nations’ Working Group of Experts on People of African Descent, a body that reports to the international organization’s High Commissioner on Human Rights. The group of experts, which includes leading human rights lawyers from around the world, presented its findings to the United Nations Human Rights Council on Monday, pointing to the continuing link between present injustices and the dark chapters of American history.

“In particular, the legacy of colonial history, enslavement, racial subordination and segregation, racial terrorism and racial inequality in the United States remains a serious challenge, as there has been no real commitment to reparations and to truth and reconciliation for people of African descent,” the report stated. “Contemporary police killings and the trauma that they create are reminiscent of the past racial terror of lynching.”

This conclusion was part of a study by the United Nations’ Working Group of Experts on People of African Descent, a body that reports to the international organization’s High Commissioner on Human Rights. The group of experts, which includes leading human rights lawyers from around the world, presented its findings to the United Nations Human Rights Council on Monday, pointing to the continuing link between present injustices and the dark chapters of American history.

“In particular, the legacy of colonial history, enslavement, racial subordination and segregation, racial terrorism and racial inequality in the United States remains a serious challenge, as there has been no real commitment to reparations and to truth and reconciliation for people of African descent,” the report stated. “Contemporary police killings and the trauma that they create are reminiscent of the past racial terror of lynching.”
Citing the past year’s spate of police officers killing unarmed African American men, the panel warned against “impunity for state violence,” which has created, in its words, a “human rights crisis” that “must be addressed as a matter of urgency.”

The panel drew its recommendations, which are nonbinding and unlikely to influence Washington, after a fact-finding mission in the United States in January. At the time, it hailed the strides taken to make the American criminal justice system more equitable but pointed to the corrosive legacy of the past.

“Despite substantial changes since the end of the enforcement of Jim Crow and the fight for civil rights, ideology ensuring the domination of one group over another, continues to negatively impact the civil, political, economic, social and cultural rights of African Americans today,” it said in a statement. “The dangerous ideology of white supremacy inhibits social cohesion amongst the US population.”

In its report, it specifically dwells on the extrajudicial murders that were a product of an era of white supremacy:

Lynching was a form of racial terrorism that has contributed to a legacy of racial inequality that the United States must address. Thousands of people of African descent were killed in violent public acts of racial control and domination and the perpetrators were never held accountable.
The reparations could come in a variety of forms, according to the panel, including “a formal apology, health initiatives, educational opportunities … psychological rehabilitation, technology transfer and financial support, and debt cancellation.”

To be sure, such initiatives are nowhere in the cards, even after the question of reparations arose again two years ago when surfaced by the groundbreaking work of American journalist Ta-Nehisi Coates.

Separately, a coalition of Caribbean nations is calling for reparations from their former European imperial powers for the impact of slavery, colonial genocide and the toxic racial laws that shaped life for the past two centuries in these countries. Their efforts are fitful, and so far not so fruitful.

When asked by reporters to comment on the tone of the American presidential election campaign on Monday, the working group’s chairman, Ricardo A. Sunga of the Philippines, expressed concern about “hate speech … xenophobia [and] Afrophobia” that he felt was prevalent in the campaign, although he didn’t specifically call out Republican candidate Donald Trump.

“We are very troubled that these are on the rise,” said Sunga.

  1. So let me get this straight, America is really a African creation.
    Hmmm……….as of July 29, 2016, debt held by the public was $14 trillion or about 76% of the previous 12 months of GDP.
    Intragovernmental holdings stood at $5.4 trillion, giving a combined total gross national debt of $19.4 trillion or about 106% of the previous 12 months of GDP.

    .“When we combine the populations of non-payers and non-filers and look to see what overall percentage of each group is not paying taxes, we find that: 50.7 percent of African American households pay no income taxes, 35.5 percent of Asian American households do not, 37.6 percent of White American households do not, and roughly 52 percent of Hispanics pay no income taxes.”

    In Black Run America, “white privilege” is the privilege that White taxpayers enjoy in paying far more in taxes than blacks and Hispanics, and receiving in return lower rates of per pupil spending on their own children.

    Seeing that America has become a giant EBT card, Maybe that U.N.-“affiliated” group based in Geneva is on to something.

    Conclusion: So that racist Donald Trump’s whole plan to MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN rely’s on getting ‘Black’ America off their asses and BACK TO WORK!

    What a friggin racist, according to a U.N.-“affiliated” group (what ever and who ever the fuck that is) based in Geneva.
    Hmmmmm….. Geneva, just wondering if Leopold II of Belgium kept any of his bank accounts there?

    • Great stuff on education spending Joe. So true, yet never pointed out, because of fear. There are definitely inequalities in education spending… but it’s the EXACT OPPOSITE of what they tell you they are!

    I’ve paid my “fair share”, over and over and over…and I’m still paying though I never had kids and never got anything from anyone except if I paid for it myself. I’m sick of free-loaders. If they don’t contribute, how about they don’t eat free?

  4. I’ve got a cockroach running through my neighbors house telling me I owe him some bread crumbs…Because his Great Great Grand Daddy….was run over by a stage coach’s wheel in my driveway…back in 1846.
    I’m feeling like I’m being taken advantage off by the Roaches out there…that have an agenda.
