"I said Georgia
Ooh Georgia, no peace I find
Just an old sweet song
Keeps #Georgia on my mind"

— Ray Charles

Until you understand why #AfricanAmericans left the Republican Party, you will never understand the Republican Party.

When they found America lynched from a Georgia tree; they asked how -- why? And, a weeping black child shouted from the mountains, “I saw them. I watched them. I saw it. They killed her. They said, she kept dancing with the Africans and the Mexicans."

"Please try to remember that what they believe, as well as what they do and cause you to endure does not testify to your inferiority but to their inhumanity."

--- James Baldwin

Black People and the Holocaust

First they came for Africa, Namibians, and, I said nothing because I was not an African nor a Namibian.

And, then they came for the Jews.

The African Holocaust

“Decades before the Nazis turned to the Jews, German colonialists in Southwest Africa - now #Namibia - slaughtered tens of thousands of tribespeople in a systematic genocide.”

“... [During] the Second Reich, rapid multimillion-person population loss and the tearfully destitute conditions propelling the outflow, were devastating to the German national identity. A concept arose: Volk ohne Raum, that is, “a people without space.”…

How Discrimination in Judaism led to the growth of Christianity

A story about an African Queen, and her treasurer, a black (Jewish) Cushite ✡ eunuch (a sexual minority) convert to a new Jewish sect called, The Way — today, it's called Christianity.

The Black Queen in The New Testament

“Toward the end of Acts, Philip converts an #Ethiopian eunuch to Christianity. He's described as “a court official of “Candace” queen of the Ethiopians” and as being “in charge of all her treasure”.
“Interestingly, the eunuch is also said to have traveled to Jerusalem in order to worship there. While there are plenty of questions raised by the eunuch’s presence in the text, I felt more intrigued by those concerning the queen he served.”

“Unlike chattel slavery, Irish indentured servitude was neither hereditary nor lifelong; unlike black slaves, Irish servants had rights; unlike black slaves, indentured servants weren't property.”


Historian Liam Hogan has spent the last six years debunking the Irish slave myth.

"So, if these people were free men and not Irish slaves, why do so many people online repeat the nonsense that they were slaves? The answer is that it is based on a misinterpretation of one of the main texts in the development of the Irish slaves meme, ....

You want to know what this was really all about?

“The Nixon campaign in 1968, and the Nixon White House after that, had two enemies: the antiwar left and black people. You understand what I’m saying? We knew we couldn’t make it illegal to be either against the war or black, .
... but by getting the public to associate the hippies with marijuana and blacks with heroin, and then criminalizing both heavily, we could disrupt those communities. We could arrest their leaders, raid their homes, break up their meetings, and vilify them night after night."
