“The family has brought some things from home for her. Not much – just a few things, like a blanket and some pictures,” the family source says.

According to the source, the shock has worn off and the family is still holding out hope that she’ll come out of it. “We love her and want her to recover.”

All this may be true, but what many want to know is how long will…

Think you are sleeping alone? Think again! You’d be surprised at all of the living things you are snuggling up with at night! According to Philip M. Tierno Jr., director of clinical microbiology and immunology at New York University’s Langone Medical Center, “most people wash their sheets once a week, but many others go 3 weeks to a month without washing their sheets.”

Dr. Tierno says that once a week is the most reasonable, as your body will thank you later. Breathing in the dirt and micro debris held inside your sheets is bad for your health. Your skin cells that you leave in your bed become a meal for mites. These mites accumulate quickly over a short period of time, and not only is their presence unhealthy and disturbing, but their feces that they leave embedded in…

WHITE SLAVERY? A synopsis of the book “WHITE CARGO,” by Don Jordan and Michael Walsh – 2008


WhiteCargo_bookcover

The Forgotten History of Britain’s White Slaves in America – The Irish Slave Trade  by Don Jordan and Michael Walsh – 2008

“…the Irish slave trade began when King James II sold 30,000 Irish prisoners as slaves to the New World. His Proclamation of 1625 required Irish political prisoners be sent overseas and sold to English settlers in the West Indies. By the mid 1600s, the Irish were the main slaves sold to Antigua and Montserrat. At that time, 70% of the total population of Montserrat were Irish slaves.

From 1641 to 1652, over 500,000 Irish were killed by the English and another 300,000 were sold as slaves. Ireland’s population fell from about 1,500,000 to 600,000 in one single decade. Families were ripped apart as the British did not allow Irish dads to take their wives and children with them across the Atlantic. This led to a helpless population of homeless women and children. Britain’s solution was to auction them off as well.

During the 1650s, over 100,000 Irish children between the ages of 10 and 14 were taken from their parents and sold as slaves in the West Indies, Virginia and New England. In this decade, 52,000 Irish (mostly women and children) were sold to Barbados and Virginia. Another 30,000 Irish men and women were also transported and sold to the highest bidder. In 1656, Cromwell ordered that 2000 Irish children be taken to Jamaica and sold as slaves to English settlers.

Many people today will avoid calling the Irish slaves what they truly were: Slaves. They’ll come up with terms like “Indentured Servants” to describe what occurred to the Irish. However, in most cases from the 17Th and 18Th centuries, Irish slaves were nothing more than human cattle.

My ancestor was brought to this country and sold into slavery along with his three brothers. They came over in chains along with others Scots aboard the John and Sarah and sold at auction. They were part of the 10,000 Scots who surrendered at the Battle of Worcester England in 1651. Cromwell sold all 10,000 into slavery in the Americas and the Barbados. Many of these Scots were bought by highlanders here and freed. Others ran away to the American frontier, and some even made it back to Scotland. The unlucky ones endured the same treatment as other American slaves. I have two degrees in history as well as other degrees in education. I always tell my students that if they take anything away with them from my class it should be that history lies. All history is politically based.

There Are No Black Traitors in Our Midst Just Confused Blacks Believing in Lies That Blinds the True Reality of Race Matters


Alfonzo_R_image

It is sick and sad members of our community have developed no empathy for police officer’s, involved in shooting unarmed Black people, but it’s a natural feeling of non-sympathy resulting from White aggression against too many Black Americans. White aggression reduces our community high levels of non-sympathy for police officers scared of, and hate Black youth. 


Police officers looking for any meet with Black youth / men / women to exercise and carry out their power to use deadly force against unarmed Black people do not deserve our community sympathy. These type of brutal and beastly police do not think twice about unloading hot lead from their pistols in the living souls manifested in Black skin. 

I do not view the likes of Alfonso under racist derogatory terms, which intend to reduce Blacks humanity in the minds of other race / ethnic groups competing with the Black Race. 

Alfonso like far too many other Black Americans and Africans living back in our homelands, simply are not race loyal. Unaware that Black people, simply are despised and hated because of our dark complexions of our skin tones and shades, and more importantly races other than the Black race, realize race unity is powerful when competing for limited social resources in any given society.

Race loyalty bounds the group to compete fairly and equitably against other races, as designed by the force of natural human creation. 

Black people on the planet simply need to wake up from accepting the lies and deceit about race matters. Race is a pre-ordain reality of life. Not to accept this fact will result in continue White aggression / oppression of our Black race.

Honesty Is Missing In America Race Discourse (The N-Word)


Honestly and truthfully, it is hypocritical and bias for the American media reporting the outraged over a single White woman Mom Beauton Gilbow. Viewed in a suspected video participating in a sing along to a Black Rap Artist hit song which is an Explicitly Dumb-Found Negro,” uses the n-word, not to mention well-known other rap artist uses as a chorus line / hook. People are reacting as though today’s White and Black youth are immune from American Racism and its institutionalized behaviors and grotesque practice denying equal access in the society to Black Americans.

On the other side of this issue too many Black American use the n-word like drinking Kool-Aid in the hood on hot summer days.

Black Americans on the other hand of the effects of racism justify use of, and condone Blacks ‘seemingly’ the privilege of using the n-word as a term of endearment be allowed exclusive use of the n-word in the American society and world for that matter.

This linguistic degenerative metamorphosis (n-word) into Black American culture is a phenomenon in the human family. Possibly no other enslaved race, or group in the history of the human family is known to adopted and endear slave master’s derogatory titles place on his or her group after freedom was given. The phenomenon more importantly, testifies to the psychological damage American Institutionalize Racism obviously has caused on too many descendants of American Black / African slaves, and free Black men and women during institutionalized slavery times.

A1-typical hypocrisy of modern-day Black men and women that profess cultural / race Blackness but follow in the linguistic traditions of days gone when slave traders and slave-masters reduced enslaved Black Africans to the level of “beast of burden.”

The American society which for the most part guided by the power and influence of the mass-media complex was serious about exposing and eliminating institutional racism it would condemn all social mechanisms of it practiced by all members and institutions of the American society. The Rap music industry endorses the n-word in much of its lyrical content, as an art form of expression. I ask who, what and why, racist behavior and beliefs are responsible for today’s continue use of the n-word? I really don’t have an authoritative answer and maybe our society will find sole responsibility for the present day use of the n-word by too many Black Americans in private and public circles.

Resolving social racism and its continue practices in the American society will never end by pointing fingers at racist mechanism when they come to light in view of the public eye of scrutiny, nor by ignoring the irrational use of the n-word by members of our society which the word devised intentions was to demise.
