The Ugly History of New Year’s Is Too Real for White Republicans




And as such, New Year’s Day was known as “Hiring Day” or—in words that more precisely named the cruelty they experienced—“Heartbreak Day.”

“Of all the days in the year, the slaves dread New Year’s Day the worst of any,”
Lewis Clarke, who fled enslavement and became an outspoken abolitionist, stated in 1842, one year before Rhode Island banned legalized racial bondage.

The racist 1890 law that’s still blocking thousands of Black Americans from voting




This conclave took place in 1890. But remarkably, approximately 130 years later, the laws they came up with are still blocking nearly 16% of Mississippi’s Black voting-age population from casting a ballot.

A New Report Finds That 45 States Are 'Failing' to Teach Students About the Period That Shaped Race Relations After the Civil War



... reminded me very much of the Reconstruction era and the overthrow of Reconstruction, which was often accompanied, or accomplished, I should say, by violent assaults on elected officials,” Eric Foner, Pulitzer Prize-winning historian and author of Reconstruction: America’s Unfinished Revolution, 1863-1877, said in an interview with the New Yorker published a week later.

McConnell’s not alone. A lot of white folks don’t think Blacks are real ‘Americans’ | Opinion




....:jibox:
So one does not weep to see him smacked about, as happened last week after he rhetorically implied that African Americans are something other than real Americans.

It's been a good while, but this place has always been home. Thankful to be here.
Hi! I'm not as active on this account as I want to be. For one I tend to forget that this site exists until I check my email. Two, I'm currently in the process of building up a fine art site for Oklahoma black and native historical references. The references correlate with another site that will be a storytelling site that has not yet been produced.
Happy to be back and gaining more knowledge!
