March 24, 1865: The Right Spirit
 
“The Right Spirit — We published a statement yesterday that a number of citizens of Roanoke county had pledged themselves to liberate all their slaves, of the proper age, who would volunteer as soldiers, and promising that proper provision would be made for their families during their absence. We have the pleasure to day of laying the list before our readers, embracing as it does the names of twenty-three substantial citizens. We hope that this patriotic beginning thus inaugurated in Roanoke will be followed up promptly in every county in the State and the Confederacy, and that soon General Lee will be so strengthened that he will push his great aims to a speedy consumation.”
 
Commentary, The Daily Virginian, Lynchburg Va.


Now do you want a prime example of the pure evil that was the confederacy? Do you want an example of the hypocrisy of those that are confederate apologists who attempt to portray the confederates as benevolent keepers of the slaves?
Well read what was at the bottom of the same news article.

I was, as usual, trawling Youtube - not looking for anything in particular, when I came across these:

After reading your last post, I think, maybe it's appropriate. It's been less than One generation (1970) since these songs were written. If anybody's keeping a count.

Ok Raven and Common  (I do realize some of the white readers here don't recognize these names) It's time to be schooled.
I's a down right shame the people they run to speak on behalf of black folks and issues, have absolutely no historical context or even real life experience.  Please people, please my black people, please my young black people, educate yourselves about your history. Educate yourselves about your real time circumstances.

I thought my understanding of this nations history was horrific enough, having spent many college nights sobbing over history books as I learned of the atrocities against anyone deemed subhuman in the eye of whites. Sadly, I was mistaken and there is worse than I could have ever imagined. My soul aches in this moment, tears burning right behind my eyes. That statue must be destroyed as his discovery was made through unspeakable torture of women unable to escape. He deserves to be forgotten aside from the terror he inflicted upon humanity.


Think you know what pain is? Do you think you've come close to understanding the atrocities perpetrated upon slave women? How about you just get over it folks. Read this and hopefully you will have enough decency to hang your heads in shame.

So Justice Roberts gave a big speech and announcement. The 1965 voting rights act has been gutted by a hand picked right wing court, because they say racism no longer exist. Black people are told over and over they are the ones who keep racism going and they just imagine injustice. Have I about got it right?

The Patterson Greenfield.  What was that? Who were they? Read this and be prepared to have history turned upside down....again.
Why? The same reason we have history turned upside down before. We are getting the true history when we include the black history that is deliberately left out of the American culture.

Hold on to your hat folks. This black history will literally take you for a ride.

I can't think of a single reason why this topic never occurred to me before, it just didn't. This is one amazing story.
