Thieving French Haitian Reparations

Posted by dangerousnegro on

by Tre B. I've been meaning to get around to learning about the history of Haiti for a good minute since it was the first independent African/Black republic in the Western hemisphere.  I also want to predict what will happen to Haiti, from an international relations standpoint, due to the recent earthquake.  The best way to figure that out is to examine the past.  It's a shame it took a tragedy for me to finally get around to it. I still haven't learned enough to make a prediction about Haiti's future.  Although, my knowledge about other African countries leads me...

What The Senate's Apology For Slavery Really Means

Posted by dwalkerspeaking on

by Demetrius D. Walker You probably missed it, (I know I did), but the United States Senate issued a formal apology for slavery a few days ago. [Begin Sarcasm] Thank you Uncle Sam!  This news made my Juneteenth shuckle buck all the more livelier, as I not only celebrated my ancestors learning of the 2 year old Emancipation Proclamation, but now the great-great-great grandsons of their slave masters unanimously concluded “My bad.”  So now that the federal government has come clean after 144 years, I guess everything is all good.  Break out the tea and crumpets, chicken and watermelon, gin...

cross-posted at Momma, here come that girl again! Happy Juneteenth! Juneteenth, June 19, is traditionally recognized as the day the last slaves, in Texas, learned of their freedom.

I'll save commentary for later, but here're some thoughts from Ta-Nehisi Coates. Just enjoy the read and leave...

Grilled Chicken as Reparations for Slavery!!

Posted by dangerousnegro on

...jk, just wanted to get your attention.  While reading one of the GREATEST BOOKS EVER WRITTEN, I came across one of the best arguments in favor of reparations ever written: Consequently, while prior forms of White domination and exploitation of Blacks may have ceased and desisted, the economic injustices and inequalities they imposed continue unabated.  The legal prohibition of further injustices does not necessarily mean that the injurious effects of past injustices no longer persist and do not require rectification.  Justice requires not only the ceasing and desisting of injustice but also requires either punishment or reparation for injuries and...

F*** Joe the Plumber: Economic Equality and The Myth of Free Markets

Posted by dangerousnegro on

by Tre B. dangerousNEGRO.com Now I'm no expert economist, so like Levar Burton used to say on Reading Rainbow, "You don't have to take my word for it..."  However, there are some commentators in the media, who claim to be experts, telling outright lies.  Maybe it's intentional or maybe they're just ignorant, but let me tell you what I think about so-called "free" markets. The point of this article is to make you aware of the tactics that are being used to distract people from the fight for economic, political, and social equality for all human beings.  As soon as...
