“We are trading one form of slavery for another.” “What I am saying is that all we Americans are trading one form of slavery
for another. All of us are in some measure slaves of the federal government.”—Cliven
Bundy, American Cattle Rancher.
“Necessity is the plea for every infringement of human freedom. It is the argument of tyrants; it is the creed of slaves.” ~ William Pitt, the Younger.
God warns us of the „empty deceit‟ of the cult of Liberalism, Liberal-socialism, Humanism, „Progressivism,‟ Secular-Humanism, Statism, Naturalism, Materialism, Collectivism, or whatever „Ism‟ adherents of the self-idolizing demonic religious belief system wish to label their worldview/religion in His Word where It is written,
“Beware lest anyone cheat you through philosophy and empty deceit, according to the tradition of men, according to the basic principles of the world, and not according to Christ.” (Colossians 2:8.)
Liberalism‟s “Progressive” Dependency Plantation
The Christian Church in America has effectively turned its back on the biblical standards of righteousness upon which this Christian nation was founded and effectively reaped the reward of what she has sown in place of the Truth.
Relegating Americans of African ancestry unto the Liberalsocialist‟s ,„Progressive,‟ de facto government welfare plantation of subsidized dependency championed by the delusional elitist Statist Democrats has wreaked havoc in the lives of those Americans along with many others.
If only in the signing of the Declaration of Independence our nation‟s Founding Fathers had not compromised with the truth and deleted the clause which would have outlawed slavery in our newly born nation—but they did compromise and delete that clause and the rest is history. It took Christian abolitionists like John Brown and Wilbur Wilberforce to fight for the political and social change in concert with the national blood-letting of a Civil War for America to nationally repent of the sin of accepting the legalized institution of slavery. It shall take Christian apologists who rightly divide the Word of God to defeat the untenable, irrational, delusional arguments of the Liberal-socialists behind the present day enslavement of Americans in
bondage—dependent upon—the Liberal-socialist‟s government subsidized de facto welfare plantation.
The original composition of the Declaration of Independence contained a clause that was deleted
because of protests of only two of the thirteen original colonies, Georgia and South Carolina. That original draft was a scathing refutation of the slave trade and read, “He has waged cruel war against human nature itself, violating its most sacred rights of life & liberty in the persons of a distant people who never offended him, captivating & carrying them into slavery in another hemisphere, or to incur miserable death in their transportation thither. This piratical warfare, the opprobrium of infidel powers, is the warfare of the Christian king of Great Britain. Determined to keep open a market where MEN should be bought & sold. He has prostituted his negative (veto) for suppressing every legislative attempt to prohibit or to restrain this execrable commerce; and that this assemblage of horrors might want no fact of distinguished die, he is now exciting those very people to rise in arms among us, and to purchase that liberty of which he has deprived them, by murdering the people for whom he also obtruded them: thus paying off former crimes committed against the liberties of one people, with crimes which he urges them to commit against the lives of another.”
Slavery was not universally accepted by American Christians as morally acceptable
according to biblical standards at the time of the founding of the country.
Yet, today we have Liberal-socialists leading those who would follow them “Forward” unto the spiritual, economic, and ideological bondage, the de facto slavery upon the Democrat party‟s dependency plantation of a Liberal-socialist, „Progressive‟ welfare state with little resistance from a cowering Christian, Conservative, Republican party fearful of being labeled “RACIST” for opposing the absurd, biblically indefensible arguments of the Liberal-socialist apologists. The Bible does not advocate Socialism. Liberalism is delusional—a mental disorder if ever there was one. The Liberal‟s utopian state does not exist and cannot exist. The very word „Utopia,‟ transliterated into the English from the Ancient Greek means „no place.‟
"Socialists look upon people as raw material to be formed into social combinations. To them— the elite—the relation between persons and the legislator appears to be the same as the relationship between the clay and the potter."
(Bastiat, Frederic. The Law. The Classic Blueprint for a Just Society. New York 10533: Irvington-on-Hudson, 1998. Pp. v-vi.)
Unbiblical doctrinal error can lead otherwise honorable, Bible-believing Christians into embracing evil—into embracing aberrant theology and faulty doctrines NOT derived from sound biblical exegesis.
In the book „Reading The Man: A Portrait of Robert E. Lee Through His Private Letters‟ by Elizabeth Brown Pryor she writes, "He held that although slavery was regrettable, it was an institution sanctioned by God and as such would disappear only when God ordained it." (Bordewich, Fergus M. "Day of Reckoning."Smithsonian Oct 2009: 68.) Such is the degree to which Christians like Robert E. Lee as well as the society in which they live may be deceived by false, unbiblical
doctrines into justifying something as hideously evil as institutionalized, legalized slavery.
Likewise, today the Christian Church and the American people embrace the faulty doctrines of the religion of the Liberal-socialist, Collectivist, „Modernist,‟ Humanist, Materialist, Statist, „Progressive‟ Democrats—doctrines NOT derived from valid methods of biblical exegesis utilizing sound methods of higher textual criticism and are once again being led to embrace faulty doctrines that lead to enslavement.
“Slavery is widely misunderstood and as such has been a tool for hustlers and demagogues. Slavery has been part of the human condition throughout recorded history and everywhere on the globe. Romans enslaved other Europeans; Greeks enslaved other Greeks; Asians enslaved Asians; Africans
enslaved Africans; and in the New World, Aztecs enslaved Aztecs and other native groups. Even the word slave is derived from the fact that Slavic people were among the early European slaves.
Though racism has been used to justify slavery, the origins of slavery had little to do with racism. In recent history, the major slave traders and slave owners have been Arabs, who enslaved Europeans, black Africans and Asians. A unique aspect of slavery in the Western world was the moral outrage against it, which began to emerge in the 18th century and led to massive efforts to eliminate it. It was Britain’s military might and the sight of the Union Jack on the high seas that ultimately put an end to the slave trade.
Unfortunately, the facts about slavery are not the lessons taught in our schools and colleges. The gross misrepresentation and suggestion in textbooks and lectures is that slavery was a uniquely American practice done by racist white people to black people. Despite abundant historical evidence, youngsters are taught nothing about how the Founding Fathers quarreled, debated and agonized over the slave issue.” (Williams, Walter. "Truth About Slavery Schools Aren't Teaching." 24, Oct. 2012. wnd.com.

“From evidence found in the earliest legal documents, Anthony Johnson must be recognized as the nation’s first official legal slaveholder.” “Johnson—who had himself been captured in Angola and brought to America as an indentured servant—was a black man.” “The father of legalized slavery in America was a black man.” (Father of U.S. Slavery Was a Black Man, by Ben Kinchlow.
“Prior to 1655 there were no legal chattel slaves in the colonies, only indentured servants. All masters were required to free their servants after their time was up. Seven years was the limit that an indentured servant could be held. Upon their release they were granted 50 acres of land. This included any black African purchased from slave traders. Blacks were also granted 50 acres upon their release. Anthony Johnson was a Negro from modern-day Angola. He was brought to the US to work on a tobacco farm in 1619. In 1622 he was almost killed when Powhatan Indians attacked the farm. 52 out of 57 people on the farm perished in the attack. He married a female black servant while working on the farm. When Anthony was released he was legally recognized as a “free Negro” and ran a successful farm. In 1651 he held 250 acres and five black indentured servants. In 1654, it
was time for Anthony to release John Casor, a black indentured servant. Instead Anthony told Casor he was extending his time. Casor left and became employed by the free white man Robert Parker. Anthony Johnson sued Robert Parker in the Northampton Court in 1654. In 1655, the court ruled that Anthony Johnson could hold John Casor indefinitely. The court gave judicial sanction for blacks to own members of their own race as chattel slaves. Thus Casor became the first permanent slave and Johnson the first slave owner. Whites still could not legally hold a black servant as a chattel slave until 1670. In that year, the colonial assembly passed legislation permitting free whites, blacks, and Indians the right to own blacks as slaves. By 1699, the number of free blacks prompted fears of a “Negro insurrection.” Virginia Colonial ordered the repatriation of freed blacks back to Africa. Many blacks sold themselves to white masters so they would not have to go to Africa. This was the first effort to gently repatriate free blacks back to Africa. The modern nations of Sierra Leone and Liberia both originated as colonies of repatriated former black slaves. However, black slave owners continued to thrive in the United States. By 1830 there were 3,775 black families living in the South who owned black slaves. By 1860 there were about 3,000 slaves owned by black households in the city of New
Orleans alone.” (http://topconservativenews.com/2013/07/the-first-slave-ownerin-america-was-a-black-man/. Council of Conservative Citizens. July 2, 2013.)

Faulty biblical doctrine embraced by Christians was as responsible for the perpetuation of the institution of slavery in the United States as the enormous profits to be made. Similarly, unbiblical economic principles today allow proponents of „Progressive‟ Liberal-socialism—Democrats—to further enslave a group of people within the bondage of the multitudinous metaphorical chains of Socialism on the Liberal-socialist, Democrat, „Progressive‟ welfare state plantation of dependency including: a) spiritual chains forged in the denial of the authority of Scripture and the rejection of a recognition of Man‟s need of a Savior; b) ideological chains forged in the lies of the Liberal-socialist‟s morally relevant worldview; and c) economic chains forged in the irrational arguments of the Liberalsocialist‟s welfare state utopian fantasy, which, (under their irrational system upon a de facto modern-day slave plantation—a „Progressive‟ plantation of dependency
upon the state for that which they should take personal responsibility for securing—run by the Liberal-socialist, “Progressive” Democrat Party‟s delusional, self-proclaimed as elite community organizers, or as Frederic Bastiat identified them, “Supermen” “Legislative Leaders”), effectively enslaves recipients of the redistributed “benefits” to dependency upon the government to provide it for them.
Harriet Tubman, “(born Araminta Harriet Ross; 1820— March 10, 1913), was an AfricanAmerican abolitionist, humanitarian, and Union spy during the American Civil War. Born into slavery, Tubman escaped and subsequently made more than thirteen missions to rescue more than 70 slaves using the network of antislavery activists and safe houses known as the Underground Railroad. She later helped John Brown recruit men for his raid on Harpers Ferry, and in the post-war era struggled for women's suffrage,” (Wikipedia.org), said,
“I freed a thousand slaves. I could have freed a thousand more if only they knew they were slaves.” (africanamericanquotes.org.)
Booker T. Washington, “an African-American educator, author, orator, and advisor to Republican presidents,” (Wikipedia.org), warned America in 1901 of a covetous group of instigators within the community of Americans of African descent who, for personal financial
“There is another class of colored people who make a business of keeping the troubles, the wrongs, and the hardships of the Negro race before the public. Having learned that they are able to make a living out of their troubles, they have grown into the settled habit of advertising their wrongs—partly because they want sympathy and partly because it pays. Some of these people do not want the Negro to lose his grievances, because they do not want to lose their jobs.”
gain, continually stir up dissension with the following words:
It is written in the Bible in an often misquoted verse, 1st Timothy 6:10, „ῥίζα γὰρ πάντων τῶν κακῶν ἐστιν ἡ φιλαργυρία,’ translated into English: “The
love of money is the root of
all kinds of evils.”
"Socialism Is Legal Plunder
"It is impossible to introduce into society a greater change and a greater evil than this: the conversion of the law into an instrument of plunder." („The Law.‟ Pg.8.) "But how is this legal plunder to be identified? Quite simply, See if the law takes from
some persons what belongs to them, and gives it to other persons to whom it does not belong. See if the law benefits one citizen at the expense of another by doing what the citizen himself cannot do without committing a crime." („The Law.‟ Pg. 17.)
"Socialists desire to practice legal plunder, not illegal plunder. Socialists, like all other monopolists, desire to make the law their own weapon. And when once the law is on the side of socialism, how can it be used against socialism?" („The Law.‟ Pg. 19.) "The Seductive Lure of Socialism" "Here I encounter the most popular fallacy of our times. It is not considered sufficient that the law should be just; it must be philanthropic. Nor is it sufficient that the law should guarantee to every citizen the free and inoffensive use of his faculties for
physical, intellectual, and moral self-improvement. Instead, it is demanded that the law should directly extend welfare, education, and morality throughout the nation.
This is the seductive lure of socialism. And I repeat again: These two uses of the law are in direct contradiction to each other. We must choose between them. A citizen cannot at the same time be free and not free." („The Law.‟ Pg. 21.) "I declare that I do not mean to attack the intentions or the morality of anyone. Rather, I am attacking an idea which I believe to be false; a system which appears to me to be unjust; an injustice so independent of personal intentions that each of us profits from it without wishing to do so, and suffers from it without knowing the cause of the suffering.) („The Law.‟ Pg. 23.) "Is not liberty the destruction of all despotism -- including, of course, legal despotism? („The Law.‟ Pg. 51.) "Finally, is not liberty the restricting of the law only to its rational spheres of organizing the right of the individual to lawful self-defense of punishing injustice?" („The Law.‟ Pg. 51-52.)
"Philanthropic Tyranny" („The Law.‟ Pg. 52.) "While society is struggling toward liberty, these famous men who put themselves at its head are filled with the spirit of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. They think only of subjecting mankind to the philanthropic tyranny of their own social interventions." („The Law.‟ Pg.52.) "...they desire to force mankind docilely to bear this yoke of the public welfare that they have dreamed up in their own imaginations." („The Law.‟ Pg. 53.) "The claims of these organizers of humanity...", agnostic, secular-humanist, liberal social democrat “Master thinkers, "...raise another question which I have often asked them and which, so far as I know, they have never answered: If the natural tendencies of mankind are so bad that it is not safe to permit people to be free, how is it that the tendencies of these organizers are always good?" („The Law.‟ Pg. 63.)
"The organizers maintain that society, when left undirected, rushes headlong to its inevitable destruction because the instincts of the people are so perverse. The legislators claim to stop this suicidal course and to give it a saner direction. Apparently, then, the legislators and the organizers have received from Heaven an intelligence and virtue that place them beyond and above mankind..." („The Law.‟ Pp. 63-64.)
Idolized liberal-socialist 'supermen' maintain, according to their irrational, delusional worldview constructed within a malignantly narcissistic mindset , which invariably asserts that they have some enigmatic, neo-gnostic-like great new insight into what it is that the rest of society needs and that whatever it is that they determine is in fact the 'Change' that society needs. They assert that they alone are the enlightened, illuminate, gifted with what sociologists define as an higher insight or “verstehen,” ‘Legislative Leaders’ who have the Godgiven, 'superhuman' right—authority that is—to see that society gets it. They are society's only “Hope”… whether it is the "Change"…which the rest of we “mere mortals” within any given society want or not.
Working as a background-extra one day some months ago on the film „Django Unchained,‟ I played a 19th Century slave buyer at a slave market in a scene directed by Quentin Tarantino. Jamie Foxx walked by me on the set, but I didn‟t speak with him. We were working and background-extras aren‟t supposed to bother the big stars working on the set. Ironic that Mr. Foxx could work on a film which so realistically depicts the brutality that transpired when the institution of slavery was legal and the degradation of enslaved human beings regarded as chattel was legalized here in America, yet not be able to discern the bondage in which “Progressive,” Liberal-socialist Democrats relegate all those but their own self-proclaimed elite „Legislative Leaders,‟ i.e. „Supermen,‟ „Master Thinkers,‟ or would-be “Messiahs” upon their utopian, state sponsored welfare dependency plantation.
It is noteworthy that Liberal-socialist, „Progressive,‟ Humanist Democrats will never criticize the Islamo-fascist practice of slavery or the legitimization of the practice by Islamist totalitarian and supremacist ideologues. „Birds of a feather stick together‟ Whether the Fascism is Islamo-fascism which takes the form of Sharia Law, or Liberal-fascism, which takes many forms: Id est Liberal-socialism, or Collectivism, or „Progressivism,‟ or Statism, or Humanism, or Secular-humanism, or Marxism, or Communism, or “Modernism”—all cut from the same clothe upon a continuum of never-ending
variations upon the Collectivist, that is to say Facist theme, Fascism always results in the enslavement of those deemed inferior by those who consider themselves superior.
“Under Islamic laws, slavery is explicitly permitted. As Saudi Sheikh Saleh Al-Fawzan, a member of the Senior Council of Clerics had said in 2003, those who argue that slavery is abolished are "ignorant, not scholars. They are merely writers. Whoever says such things is an infidel." Muhammad himself was a slaver. He not only owned many male and female slaves, but he also sold, captured, and had sex with his slaves. Even his wives owned slaves.
Apologists will claim that Muhammad provided a system that would eventually lead to the abolition of slavery, but this is not true and nowhere does Islamic scripture support such a statement. Yes, Muhammad regulated it and allowed for the
manumission of a slave, but this is by no means an obligation. It is clear that Muhammad held no animosity towards slavery, and at times even discouraged the freeing of slaves. He even encouraged racism by exchanging two black slaves for one Arab. As is clear, Muhammad's actions perpetuated the existence of this reprehensible trade by institutionalising it within Islam, This sanction of slavery has helped the Muslim world create one of the largest trans-continental slave trades in history.
The Eastern Islamic slave trade is the longest yet least discussed of the two major trades. Much like the Crusades and the Islamic Conquests which prompted them, you only hear of the one and not the other. Many people are not even aware that the Arab slave trade ever existed, even though it began around 650 AD (pre-dating the European slave trade by over a
thousand years) However, It was only officially abolished (due largely to pressure from the West, rather than their own conscience) in the 1960's and the slave trade still exists in the Islamic East. As of July 2009, there were over half a million slaves in Mauritania alone. In Pakistan, the labor minister of Punjab had said in early 2009 that there are "millions of forced laborers in 'private prisons' across the country", and the town of Hajja, Yemen, in 2010 is home to another 300 slaves. This (just like the history of Jihad) is an ongoing atrocity that many want to erase from our history books and have largely succeeded in doing so. Unlike the Europeans who were primarily interested in male slaves for use as agricultural workers, the Islamic raiders interests (like Muhammad's before them) lay in female slaves to use for sexual exploitation as concubines, in harems. Also, putting aside the 1.25 million white Europeans Christians who were captured and sold into the Muslim slave trade between the 16th and 19th century, the number of innocent Africans who were taken (or died in the process of being taken) as slaves over the last fourteen centuries of Islamic slavery is estimated to be higher than 140 million. This figure dwarfs the numbers that were taken at the hands of Europeans. And unlike in the West, male slaves (blacks in particular) were commonly castrated, hence the lack of surviving descendants of black slaves in the Middle-East.”
Little-known fact: the Muslim countries were among the very last which abolished slavery, mainly because slavery is enriched in the Islamic law. Qatar: 1952.
Saudi Arabia: 1962. Yemen: 1962. United Arab Emirates: 1963. Oman: 1970. Mauritania: 2007. Slavery in other Muslim countries was abolished by Italian, French, or British colonisers/mandates. Slave girls in Islam have a strict dress code: only cover from the navel to the knees, to differentiate them from the free Muslims.
Female and child slaves in Islam are primarily acquired as spoils of wars, but can also be traded in special markets called Suq an-Nukhasa (slave market). The slave, male or female, cannot refuse sex to their master, in addition to the usual chores.
"The preservation of the sacred fire of liberty, and the destiny of the republican model of government, are...staked on the experiment entrusted to the hands of the American people."—George Washington, First Inaugural Address, 1789.
VIRTUAL RACISM AND REPARATIONS; FROM THE ARTICLE „DO LIGHT-SKINNED BLACKS OWE REPARATIONS?’ BY BEN KINCHLOW. 3/3/2013.
WND.COM. “THERE IS A TRUTH THAT MUST BE TAKEN INTO CONSIDERATION. FROM TIME IMMEMORIAL, GROUPS OF PEOPLE HAVE DISLIKED OTHER GROUPS OF PEOPLE. PEOPLE NOT LIKING OTHER PEOPLE IS NOTHING NEW, AND BLACK/WHITE IS NOT A PREREQUISITE. THE WORDS OF A SONG BY THE KINGSTON TRIO RING AS TRUE TODAY AS WHEN ORIGINALLY SUNG: “THEY’RE RIOTING IN AFRICA, STARVING IN SPAIN … THE WHOLE WORLD IS FESTERING WITH UNHAPPY SOULS, THE FRENCH HATE THE GERMANS, THE GERMANS HATE THE POLES, ITALIANS HATE YUGOSLAVS, SOUTH AFRICANS HATE THE DUTCH AND I DON’T LIKE ANYBODY VERY MUCH.” IN PRE-COLONIAL AMERICA, INDIAN TRIBES HATED, FOUGHT AND KILLED/ENSLAVED OTHER INDIAN TRIBES. ACROSS THE SEAS, CHINESE HATED JAPANESE (AND VICE VERSA); WHITE ENGLISHMEN FOUGHT AND KILLED WHITE IRISHMEN; AFRICANS HATED, ENSLAVED AND KILLED (AND STILL DO HATE) OTHER AFRICANS. JUST BECAUSE SOMEONE DOESN‟T SWOON OVER YOU, OR IS LESS THAN ECSTATIC IN YOUR PRESENCE, ISN‟T NECESSARILY RACISM. TRUTH IS, SOME OF THE BEHAVIOR OF CERTAIN
BLACKS HAS EXACERBATED THE SITUATION. EVEN ONE OF OUR OUTSPOKEN CIVIL RIGHTS LEADERS HAS ARTICULATED WHAT MOST ASSUREDLY WOULD BE CONSIDERED A “RACIST” POSITION IF UTTERED BY A WHITE CONSERVATIVE: “THERE IS NOTHING MORE PAINFUL TO ME AT THIS STAGE IN MY LIFE THAN TO WALK DOWN THE STREET AND HEAR FOOTSTEPS AND START THINKING ABOUT ROBBERY. THEN LOOK AROUND AND SEE SOMEBODY WHITE AND FEEL RELIEVED. … AFTER ALL WE HAVE BEEN THROUGH. JUST TO THINK WE CAN’T WALK DOWN OUR OWN STREETS, HOW HUMILIATING” (JESSE JACKSON, U.S. NEWS & WORLD REPORT, MARCH 10, 1996). THE DOMINANT ASPECT CONTRIBUTING TO THE CHARGE OF EXTANT RACISM IN AMERICA TODAY IS BASED ON THIS UNRECOGNIZED FACT: MOST OF THE PEOPLE CLAMORING ABOUT “RACISM” HAVE NO IDEA WHAT THEY ARE TALKING ABOUT. TRUTH IS, THEY SIMPLY DON‟T KNOW WHAT REAL RACISM IS. THEY ARE FOCUSING ON SOMETHING I CALL VIRTUAL RACISM. AT THE RISK OF OFFENDING, OR WORSE, BEING RELEGATED TO A BYGONE ERA, LET ME JUST OFFER A BRIEF REFRESHER COURSE ON A FEW ACTUAL, NOT VIRTUAL, RACIST POLICIES: THE BLIND: MAINTAIN A SEPARATE BUILDING ON SEPARATE GROUND FOR THE ADMISSION, CARE, INSTRUCTION, AND SUPPORT OF ALL BLIND PERSONS OF THE COLORED OR BLACK RACE. EDUCATION: SEPARATE SCHOOLS SHALL BE MAINTAINED FOR THE CHILDREN OF THE WHITE AND COLORED RACES. TEXTBOOKS: BOOKS SHALL NOT BE INTERCHANGEABLE BETWEEN THE WHITE AND COLORED SCHOOLS. TELEPHONE BOOTHS: MAINTAIN SEPARATE BOOTHS FOR WHITE AND COLORED PATRONS LUNCH COUNTERS: NO PERSONS, FIRMS, OR CORPORATIONS WHO, OR WHICH, FURNISH MEALS TO PASSENGERS AT STATION RESTAURANTS OR STATION EATING HOUSES … SHALL FURNISH SAID MEALS TO WHITE AND COLORED PASSENGERS IN THE SAME ROOM, OR AT THE SAME TABLE, OR AT THE SAME COUNTER. JUVENILE DELINQUENTS: SEPARATE BUILDINGS, NOT NEARER THAN ONE-FOURTH MILE TO EACH OTHER, ONE FOR WHITE BOYS AND ONE FOR NEGRO BOYS. MENTAL HOSPITALS: DISTINCT APARTMENTS ARE ARRANGED FOR SAID PATIENTS, SO THAT IN NO CASE SHALL NEGROES AND WHITE PERSONS BE TOGETHER. INTERMARRIAGE: IT SHALL BE UNLAWFUL FOR A WHITE PERSON TO MARRY ANYONE EXCEPT A WHITE PERSON. ANY MARRIAGE IN VIOLATION OF THIS SECTION SHALL BE VOID. AMATEUR BASEBALL: UNLAWFUL FOR ANY AMATEUR WHITE BASEBALL TEAM TO PLAY BASEBALL ON ANY VACANT LOT OR BASEBALL DIAMOND WITHIN TWO BLOCKS OF A PLAYGROUND DEVOTED TO THE NEGRO RACE, AND IT SHALL BE UNLAWFUL FOR ANY AMATEUR COLORED BASEBALL TEAM TO PLAY BASEBALL IN ANY VACANT LOT OR BASEBALL DIAMOND WITHIN TWO BLOCKS OF ANY PLAYGROUND DEVOTED TO THE WHITE RACE.
PARKS: UNLAWFUL FOR COLORED PEOPLE TO FREQUENT ANY PARK OWNED OR MAINTAINED BY THE CITY FOR THE BENEFIT, USE AND ENJOYMENT OF WHITE PERSONS. OH, ONE FINAL INDIGNITY … BURIAL: SHALL NOT BURY, OR ALLOW TO BE BURIED, ANY COLORED PERSONS UPON GROUND SET APART FOR THE BURIAL OF WHITES PERSONS. IF YOU ARE LESS THAN HALF A CENTURY OLD, HOW MANY OF THOSE LAWS HAVE YOU BEEN AFFECTED BY, RECOGNIZE OR EVEN HEARD OF? IF AMERICA WAS EVEN 1/50TH AS RACIST AS HER UNINFORMED CRITICS ALLEGE, THAT WOULD NOT BE A RHETORICAL QUESTION. IT IS NOT RHETORICAL FOR ME; I RODE IN THE BACK OF BUSES, DRANK FROM COLORED WATER FOUNTAINS, USED COLORED RESTROOMS WHERE MEN AND WOMEN USED THE SAME RESTROOM AND STEPPED OFF THE SIDEWALK WHEN WHITE WOMEN PASSED. I CHALLENGE ANYONE TO FIND EVIDENCE OF ANY OF THE ABOVE INSTANCES OF ACTUAL, NOT VIRTUAL, RACISM CURRENTLY IN EXISTENCE. ACCORDING TO THE OFFICIAL 1830 U.S. CENSUS, 3,775 FREE NEGROES OWNED 12,740 NEGRO SLAVES. OF THE 10,689 FREE BLACKS WHO LIVED IN NEW ORLEANS IN 1830, ALMOST 30 PERCENT OF THEM OWNED SLAVES. MORE THAN 3,000 WERE SLAVE MASTERS. THESE MULATTOES, QUADROONS AND OCTOROONS (MIXED RACE; IN MODERN TERMINOLOGY, LIGHTSKINNED NEGROES) OWNED BLACK SLAVES AND, IN SOME CASES, RENTED THEIR BLACK SLAVES TO WHITES. CIVIL RIGHTS LEADERS AND MANY OTHER LIBERALS ARE ADAMANT THAT THE INJUSTICES OF SLAVERY DEMAND RESTITUTION (“THE ACT OF MAKING AMENDS, OFFERING EXPIATION, OR GIVING SATISFACTION FOR A WRONG OR INJURY; SOMETHING DONE OR GIVEN AS AMENDS OR SATISFACTION”). SINCE LIGHT-SKINNED BLACKS OWNED DARK-SKINNED BLACKS, DO LIGHTER-SKINNED BLACKS OWE DAMAGES TO DARKER-SKINNED BLACKS? HOW DO YOU SAY “REP-A-RA-TIONS” IN DA HOOD?” (EXCERPT TAKEN FROM „DO LIGHT-
SKINNED BLACKS OWE REPARATIONS?’ BY BEN KINCHLOW. 3/3/2013. HTTP://WWW.WND.COM/2013/03/DO-LIGHT-SKINNED-BLACKS-OWEREPARATIONS/#LGHXBEED7ZBDLMQO.99.)
