Chalreston Sc has been in the news lately. Lets put up some of its history.

This page is of interest because the writer suspended the regular history events for June 17the in Charleston, SC., to put up the history of the AME church. As you know it was June  17th that this racist coward with the confederate flag on his sleeve walked in and murdered nine innocent people in the historical AME church. You have to scroll quite a bit to get too it, but it's worth your time.

I think it's a good idea to list some of the slave rebellions here:

Here's one that totally debunks the argument from police apologists that you must have done something to be killed by the police. It's always the victim's fail and never the racism, cowardice and/or incompetence of the police.

There are factions and political groups that want to carry this country back to "their" good old days. They want to roll back civil rights, put in voter suppression, put "those folks" back in their place. The manifest destiny thing.

Well what did the good old days look like? What are those that want to roll back all the progress that has been made wanting to go back to?

If I said a person is clueless, would you know what it means? No? Or maybe you said yes, but can't give any examples of it.

Well folks here is what being clueless looks and sounds like. If it leaves a bad taste in your mouth and a stench in your atmosphere, then you'll know what being clueless tastes and smells like s well.

A fighter I never heard of.

That's a brave, brave man, Earl. (I'm still working through your other posts)

Here is something that came across my Facebook feed. Reparations, now the context my be different -- Britain and India -- however the concept, and Dr. Tharoor's argument and conclusion, are not dissimilar. Rather a poignant and relevant history lesson.
