... Wonder if the Governor will consider a special Holiday or something to make up for having to feel shameful...

"Their plea fell on deaf ears," Gov. Maggie Hassan said before signing the bill emancipating the 14, who were never freed. "It is a source of deep shame that our predecessors didn't honor this request. But today, more than 230 years too late for their petition, we say that freedom truly is an inherent right not to be surrendered."

PORTSMOUTH, N.H. (AP) — Fourteen slaves who petitioned the New Hampshire Legislature for their freedom during the Revolutionary War were granted posthumous emancipation Friday when the governor signed a largely symbolic bill that supporters hope will encourage future generations to pursue social justice.

A group of 20 slaves who had fought in the war submitted a petition to the New Hampshire General Assembly on Nov. 12, 1779, while the war was still being fought. They argued that the freedom being sought by colonists should be extended to them, as well, and maintained that "public tyranny and slavery are alike detestable to minds conscious of the equal dignity of human nature."

One can only wonder what goes on in these people minds?
Always saying one thing and doing the other.

Personally bro. Corvo, I continue to place, what you identify about them, on their biological status of mutant recessives of the original people:

It doesn't look like you could find or make it back to the above discussion, so I'm providing support to my statement above.



Peace In the Spirit of Sankofa,
