I was looking at one of our local public broadcasting stations , and it had a very interesting program about the denied heritage of african american piratres. White folk did not want to let the slaves know that while they were planting cotton, famous pirates like black beard was living quite lavishly.. heres what I found.. Pirates of the Carribean- Nat. Geographic
I have always been a fan of blackbeard.. however ive never known he was black... surely Jonny Depp on the pirates of the Carribean wasnt black.. surely Shemar Moore wouldve done justice to that role.. :?: indeed.. indeed! :drink:

Great post. I didn't read that Black Beard was black, ( I could have misread the article ) but I didn't know of the contributions black pirates made on the high seas. Thanks for sharing. I will do more research later, this is interesting.

I must admit I never gave any credence to pirates being black, but thanks to this posting I will. So much history has been tainted by conquerors thats why its so important to search out the true history.

Good news; NRA filed for bankruptcy.
Bad news; Police often kill mentally and handicapped people.
I despise these racist killing NYPD. I'm glad Attorney General Letitia James filed a law suit against NYPD for using "excessive, brutal and unlawful force" against Black Lives Matter protesters! The law suit also targets the Mayor, police commissioner Dermot Shea and Chief of Department, Terry Monahan! Several NYPD cops have been suspended, along with many other racist violent killer cops across this nation.
Will the 3 white GOPs in Congress, Gosar, Biggs and Brooks, be charged with sedition and felony murder for inciting and helping Ali Alexander plan the insurrection? Ali Alexander, black trump supporter who started Stop The Steal and organized the insurrection, threw these 3 white terrorists under the bus. All of them should get long prison sentences. Alexander, a convicted felony, will likely be charged first.
2 things to share;
a. 33 more days to go before I hit 200 straight days of exercise.
b. Pls visit orangeseahorse . com. Not selling anything! It's a free site to post true short stories, poems, etc. Also free to read. We have 500,000 views and some writers have been published. These true short stories are poignant and life changing. Thanks,
Why aren't the white domestic terrorists charged w/felony murder and terrorism? YES, I answered my own question with the phrase 'white domestic terrorist'. But let's see if black traitor "Ali Alexander" will be charged w/felony murder for helping organize the deadly insurrection. His white comrades will blame him for influencing them to commit violence. His butt will be tattered after they throw him under the bus.
