Black Children were better off under Slavery

Yes, you read that correctly. Or at least the right-wing wackos in Iowa think so. Maybe it's really just a tempest in a teacup, but I have to rant for a moment, so keep your arms and legs inside the car and hold onto your ass.

Where do these people get off? Who in the hell do they think they are? What do they think gives them the right to upend our democracy and impose on us a western style Sharia (aka theocracy)? WHAT THE FUCK?!

Okay, I feel better now. I'm sure it won't last. Between the mess with the economy and these fucktards running around begging to flush their freedom down the toilet, I don't hold out much hope for humanity or this country.

And the right-wing bloggers are complaining that the "liberal media" took it out of context. I'm sorry, but there's nothing to take out of context. I know that their reading comprehension skills rival a first grader's but really.
"Slavery had a disastrous impact on African-American families, yet sadly a child born into slavery in 1860 was more likely to be raised by his mother and father in a two-parent household than was an African-American baby born after the election of the USA's first African-American President."

What do you think that says? Hmm? I think it implies that a child was better off under slavery solely because they had two parents. And the kicker, it's not even fucking true. Children were often sold away from their birth families. Parents were often sold away from their children.

I have a suggestion for these "pro-family" (and I use that term loosely) asshats, and that is, if the corporations that are backing them would pay people a fair wage, one parent could stay home with their children. But right now, that's usually not possible. The behavioral problems with children stem from having to rely on daycare. Daycare teaches children that the peer group is in charge because one adult to twenty plus children is bullshit. And that has nothing to do with marriage or divorce, but rather with economics, like everything else that has had to do with economics, from slavery and the Civil War right down to the war in Iraq. It's all about money. And you can take that to the bank.

  1. What a load of shit? Because the baby was more likely to live under the roof with his black mother who was raped by her white master? That is an improvement? All the pretty little Mulato children who ended up in brothels, especially those who looked white so that the Johns didn't have to worry about defiling a "good [white] girl"? The families split apart during the capture and subsequent sail of the slave ships, and then split again on the auction blocks, and then split again whenever the farm or plantation needed money.

    These tards live in a fantasy world if that is their idea of better off. Perhaps you need to remind them with a video of a rendition of Strange Fruit for starters, to remind them what we put these people through even after emancipation.

    Tell me if their children would have been better off enslaved to the British Tea Companies or to the Crown?

  2. Not only a fantasy world, but a fantasy version of history. Up is down, left is right, fascism is democracy. They re-write history and then when the real version of history is told they say that it is revisionist. Lies are truth.

  3. Black people are causing the younger generation's more vulnerable children to take pride in what they have to offer. In other words, the black adolescent kids carry themselves in a negative manner (selling drugs, home invasions, murdering others, etc..) and the well-raised sissy children take after them. How do you think Hitler received so much power? He found the German soldiers were vulnerable; and took advantage of the situation.

    The same fucking thing is going on in America today. The only difference is, we can do something about it.. SLAVERY!!!
