http://pbs.org/secrets When the Meermin set sail from Madagascar for South Africa on a hot summer's day in 1766, the Dutch crew had no idea they were about to make history. The ship was filled to capacity with human cargo, slaves bound for hard labor building the Dutch West India Company's colony at Cape Town. But the Meermin with its crew and cargo would never make it to Cape Town. Instead, in a dramatic altercation, the slaves mutinied and managed to overpower the Dutch crew, ordering the ship be sailed back to Madagascar and freedom.

In 1764, Capt. George ******, commander of a New London ship from Connecticut, and his crew suffered a deadly fate when trying to leave Senegal with captive Africans. According to a report, after the captain purchased the African captives at Goree Island in Dakar, an uprising followed a few hours later. As the ship was still docked into the night, the Africans managed to free themselves from chains and shackles, subsequently attacking the captain and his crew. The Africans reportedly used large pieces of wood and other materials found on the ship and clubbed the captain and members of his crew to death. After the slaughtering of the white slavers, the Africans left the ship and disappeared into the night.

the Kru people of Liberia (1910 photo) were the least valuable to European slave raiders because they were known to either unceasingly attempt to escape,
or be willing to commit suicide upon capture.

I somehow feel that there has to be more somewhere since the slave trade began in 1444, cause I know there is no way that they waited for 300 odd years before starting to rebel. Just a thought.

Thanks.
Black and Latino custodial workers @ the Capitol Bldg said it was degrading to clean up the debris left by white supremacist who violently stormed the Capitol Bldg. They even had to clean up smeared feces. One staffer said they were used to cleaning up after white supremacist (referring to racist Congressional members). Those who were there that day feared for their life b/c they weren't given any protection.
Mother Jones posted a list of "law makers" nationwide who promoted/assisted in the insurrection on our government. ALL should be ousted, stripped of pensions, charged with sedition and felony murder.
If black folks are present at a crime, whether they participated or not, they're charged with as many violations as white folks can conjure up. Felony murder is top of their list. Why not for white domestic terrorist?
25,000 National Guardsmen are set up to protect for Biden/Harris inauguration! Authorities are AGAIN saying that white domestic terrorist are the largest threat in American and to the democratic process.
NOT Black Lives Matter protestors, NOT even foreign terrorist, but American grown white men who are angry about all the white privilege they have.
