Thomas Fuller, African "slave" and mathematician.
Thomas Fuller was an African, shipped to America as a slave in 1724. He had remarkable powers of calculation, and late in his life was discovered by antislavery campaigners who used him as a demonstration that blacks are not mentally inferior to whites.
The place of his birth appears to have been between present day Liberia and Be...Read Full Post »

This morning I read a comment that really struck me. It was from a Black Muslim, he was informing me that Africans could never unite, at the same time he was defending Islam. He was dissing Pan-Africanism and embracing Arabism! This was crazy to me; a Black person could better imagine unity with Islam than with his own people. It just shows how ignorant some of us are of both history and current practices.
I...Read Full Post »

The dependency of African Women on Hair relaxers is truly worrisome especially as most women are not well informed about the chemicals present in these relaxers. Women relax their hair at least once every month and this ritual continues mostly for the rest of their lives. Being exposed to potentially harmful chemicals in small doses for a long period of time is whats absolutely scary. Hair companies do not print all the chemicals present in black hair products, if they did they’d proba...Read Full Post »

“There Would Be No Europe / No United States as We Now Know It Today Without Slavery” That is a simple and basic truth.
But this was not some linear or self-contained process. In fact, capitalism in Europe “took off” with the development of the world market, and that in turn was fed and driven forward by the slave trade. Ships would sail from London and Liverpool, in England, filled with the goods sold by the capitalists. They would unload these good...Read Full Post »

The Slave Trader - History's Most Ignoble Trade?
Trader: One who buys, sells or barters commodities or materials of value. The term "Trader" is innocent enough, and no doubt, there are many throughout history who have practiced this profession with honesty and honor. The problem occurs when the "commodity of value" becomes men, women and children. The Slave Traders, or those who traffic in slaves, will doubtless c...Read Full Post »

Imperialism has been the most powerful force in world history over the last four or five centuries, carving up whole continents while oppressing indigenous peoples and obliterating entire civilizations.
Yet, it is seldom accorded any serious attention by our academics, media commentators, and political leaders. When not ignored outright, the subject of imperialism has been sanitized, so that empires become...Read Full Post »

It was bad enough in 2011 when Obama’s liberal political machine forced the Joint Chiefs of Staff to drop ‘don’t ask don’t tell,’ allowing homosexuals to serve openly in the armed forces. This was followed by a military order out of the Pentagon that all military chaplains will perform same-sex marriages and make military chapels available for such services.
Thousands of chapla...Read Full Post »
