🧵 #Colonization And #Slavery

While European colonialism is condemned, the crimes committed by other civilizations have either fallen to the wayside to be forgotten or even glorified

Let’s explore some of the examples:
#Native Slavery:

When Alaska was ceded to America, the Tlingit sued the US, over anti-slavery act.

#Native chiefs rejected it, stating the buying, selling, and holding of slaves is one of the rules & customs of their people; the civil authorities have no jurisdiction over them.
#Arab Slavery

You likely have heard of the Transatlantic slave trade, but have you heard of the Islamic Arab Slave trade? A trade that enslaved millions of Africans and Europeans, and easily rivaled the Transatlantic slave trade? Probably not.

It's the anniversary of Paul Revere's famous ride in 1775, on the eve of the Battles of Lexington & Concord. In 1798 #Revere recalled his ride, noting a few landmarks along his path. One was the spot at Charlestown Neck "where Mark was hung in chains."

Who is Mark, you ask? 1/6
Mark was an enslaved man who was found guilty, along with enslaved woman Phillis, in the poisoning of Massachusetts enslaver John Codman in the early 1750s.

Phillis was burned alive. 2/6
Mark was hanged. His body was hung in a gibbet (an iron device for displaying corpses). In 1758, a physician passing thru noted with clinical interest that his "skin was but very little broken altho' he had hung hanging there near three or four years" 3/6

The Black Conservative: A black conservative journalist responds to David Horowitz's article, "Ten Reasons Why #Reparations for #Slavery is a Bad Idea and Racist Too".…
There Go Crazy Miss Daisy.

"Why y'all Blacks complaining 'bout slavery, now? The cotton has been picked and sold, we got iPhones now, and economies running on full speed; y'all should've asked for reparations - during slavey -- or at least during Jim Crow?"
A Black Libertarian view on reparations for centuries of slavery -- free labor

The Case Against Reparations

African Internationalism discussing Russia/Ukraine struggle as part of negating #colonial #capitalist narrative being spread to paint Russia as aggressor while exposing the US & other European imperialist powers role as instigator/orchestrator of crisis:

"It is no secret that White Power is working overtime to shut down any form of communication from #Russia to parts of the world - which means that most of the #propaganda churned out by the colonial capitalists goes uncontested."
"The same US #imperialism that was built on #slavery, #genocide, & colonialism, is now posturing as the moral & political authority of the world. The US colonial capital state murders African people inside the US every single day... Floyd, Locke, Taylor, & millions of others."

@Flash784 1. Pure propaganda from the start

There weren't ANY countries as we know them 1,000 years ago

Eastern Europe lands of "Rus" tribes clans villages warring & without law

Invited (possibly Slav/Rus) Rurik family from Scandinavia to rule them & bring order

First based in Kiev....
@Flash784 2. First of #Rurik rulers based in #Kiev at crossroads of trade routes in open plain-easy for travel

Also open to Asiatic hordes who frequently attacked

Yes no #Moscow at time-middle of forests

One of displaced Ruriks set up village there before returning to die in Kiev...
@Flash784 3. #Kiev eventually destroyed by Asian Hordes

Leadership of #Rus passed sideways through brothers uncles cousins not sons as in West & to other Rus centres

Eventually settled on those in #Moscow

Which became #DutchyOfMuscovy #GrandDutchy #Russia #USSR #RussianFederation...

Unfortunately for some reason, Our Worldwide group of suffering people is not having any influence on Doctors who Develop, Sell, Prescribe & Love those Images all glowing like my first. I saw Christmas trees lights all over my Brain. I almost passed out seeing #MultipleSclerosis
I’m not sure when it was I started suspecting I Might have Gadolinium Retention. I still have no diagnosis, my medical Doctors Skeptical, labeled “Skin Picker”. My kidneys work so “Nephrogenic” Gad retention isn’t it. Realized with Me, it should be coded Iatrogenic Gad Retention.
Once I suspected #Gadolinium Retention I met other like minded people here on Twitter like @Wagner_Nephro @sennasthunder @lambertdebb @Gadolinium_MRI @SandiTitus1 @planetd1 and more. I looked at FDA warning ⚠️ in Disbelief. They Know we Retain in Brain, Bone, & other Vital Organs

#OTD in 1865 the Thirteenth Amendment passed the House of Representatives, sending it to the states for ratification. The Thirteenth Amendment abolished slavery in the United States “…except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted."
The amendment ended race-based chattel slavery in America, but did not rid the nation of forced labor, which exists through America’s prison system today. #13thAmendment #Constitution #slavery #HistoryMatters #CivilWar #USCivilWar #AmericanCivilWar #PoliticalHistory #knowhistory
Congress abolished slavery in Washington D.C. in 1862. The Emancipation Proclamation outlawed slavery in rebelling states Jan. 1, 1863 and former rebel states were forced to ban slavery in new state constitutions. Republicans in Congress still wanted a Constitutional Amendment.

#OTD in 1861 a fugitive enslaved person named Sara Lucy Bagby became the last person to be returned to their owner under the Fugitive Slave Act of 1850. It is unclear when Bagby was born but she was sold in January of 1852 in Richmond to John Goshorn for $600 dollars.
Bagby (More commonly known as Lucy), escaped to Ohio via the Underground Railroad in 1860 and settled in Cleveland. For a short time, she worked as a domestic servant for Republican congressman Albert G. Riddle and as a jeweler
She was arrested on January 19, 1861 and was returned to Goshorn on the 24th. However, After the Emancipation Proclamation in early 1863, Bagby made her way to Pittsburgh, married a man named George Johnson, and relocated with him to Cleveland. Bagby died on July 14th, 1906.

#OTD in 1848 gold was found at Sutter’s Mill, California. This spurred the California Gold Rush, as northern Free-Soilers and pro-slavery Southerners both flocked to the new territory acquired through the Mexican-American War. #OnThisDay #OnThisDate #TodayInHistory #GoldRush
The battle over California’s fate as a free or slave state ignited intense debate in Congress, deepening the divide between the free North and the slave South. #California #Slavery #CaliforniaHistory
The prospect of a free California threatened to upset the even balance between free and slave states, something that southern slaveholders were unwilling to accept without certain concessions. The issue was temporarily resolved through the Compromise of 1850.

Pleased to announce a major expansion of the Intra-American Slave Trade Database:…. Thanks to support from @ACLS1919, new data more than doubles the number of documented voyages moving enslaved people within the Americas. Now 27,680 entries. (1/6)
One major addition, thanks to the research of @drjkwilliams, is coverage of the maritime portion of the U.S. domestic slave trade, particularly forced movements of enslaved people to the Gulf South via New Orleans, 1820-1860:…. (2/6)
An exciting aspect of new data on US trafficking is that the records @drjkwilliams gathered recorded names of enslaved people. (Most trade records omitted names). We’ve created a new database of the people who endured such journeys: (3/6)

@THAT_Jane @hughp1970 @DNSandilands @ProjectReality8 @lawlecturer @darrengrimes_ Why?

So you're saying if the jury had found the mob's leaders guilty the mob would have congratulated them for sticking to the law rather than acquitting them?

Taken it stoically?!

None of the mob would possibly have felt animosity against the jury for jailing their leaders?!?
@THAT_Jane @hughp1970 @DNSandilands @ProjectReality8 @lawlecturer @darrengrimes_ When are the rioters going to tear down all the statues to slavers

In Africa

Of African slavers

BLACK African slavers

Who were enslaving each other LONG before Whitey returned to Africa

And sold the slaves to the White slavers

And resisted Whites when tried to stop slavery?
@THAT_Jane @hughp1970 @DNSandilands @ProjectReality8 @lawlecturer @darrengrimes_ Slavery was the norm in those days

Africans enslaved each other long before Whitey returned to Africa

Africans sold the slaves to Whitey (previously they'd butchered most of the male captives!)

But your "slaver" used his wealth to do good works in UK

Unlike AFRICAN slavers!

Savarkar explains the reasoning behind #ForcedConversions in his novel, #Gomantak

“Then Anthony turned to his soldiers and solemnly explained his credo. ‘An intelligent gardener will burn those trees that are dried up and don’t yield fruit. +
... He will also burn those trees that cannot be transplanted from his rival’s garden into his own but will not destroy the trees capable of producing a good harvest in his garden. Similarly, however wanton and sinful they might be, women should not be burnt with their men. +
... Have you forgotten the example of the Muslims? They extracted maximum taxes from their defeated foes in the form of women and children. They enslaved children. The Greek children forgot who they were and regarded their parents as enemies. +

@SeanathanCory @walden4pa53 @HoLichette @backtothewind0 @BernieSanders I love #ChristianMythology,
it has many beautiful parts.
But like the people who wrote it,
it is full of cruel & evil things.

Goodness was in the world long before any middle eastern men wrote the bible. Some #mythos worship knowledge instead of demonizing it.
@SeanathanCory @walden4pa53 @HoLichette @backtothewind0 @BernieSanders One red flag for me as a little girl growing up w bible study was the way they dealt with questions. Why did they assume a deity crushed up a gold statue to poison water that made the whole town sick for revenge. Doesn’t a pathogen
make more sense?
They didn’t understand germs🤷🏻‍♀️
@SeanathanCory @walden4pa53 @HoLichette @backtothewind0 @BernieSanders Surely SOMEONE in the town must have proposed the idea that there must be another explanation.
Theres always several possible questions to rule out before defaulting to magic.

Or how about the burning bush?
If it really happened,
what else could have lit it ablaze?
