Yo Bro! Where's the Black Panther Party when you really need it?

Those Americans. They won't stop oppressing and jailing black people:
African Immigrant Found Guilty of Human Trafficking
A Togolese woman accused of forcing girls from Africa to work in New Jersey hair braiding salons for no pay has been convicted of human trafficking and visa fraud in a case her lawyer says highlighted African cultural norms that failed to translate in America.

(...) women [between the age of 10 and 19 — DF] were beaten, psychologically abused and, in some cases, sexually abused, while being kept from phoning home, contacting friends or family, or accessing their passports and other documents.
All that at the hand of what her lawyer, Bukie Adetula, describes as "a benevolent mother figure", and her husband.

Now you could say that we see this pattern of behavior within "certain" immigrant communities all over the Western world—and not just in the USA— but Mama's lawyer knows better than y'all bunch of pale-faced rednecks. According to him, it's the culture, stupid: what the mean nasty U.S government calls slave-like is "merely a West African custom of protecting young girls by making sure they were tightly supervised".

I suppose that by these standards, Roman Polanski makes the perfect father figure.

Anyway, the real issue here is that you should all know by now that enslaving is only Whitey what does it!

Especially so when Whitey's an evil Secessionist Southerner Slaveholder. Like, for example, William Ellison: third-largest slaveholder in South Carolina, "owning" more than 60 slaves by 1860 (putting him in the top 5% of slaveholders in SC—and owning more slaves than 99% of the South's slaveholders), and staunch supporter of the Confederate cause: one of the richest men in South Carolina, his family lost it all after the war between the States because they put their dough in Confederate bonds. His oldest grandson served in the 1st South Carolina Artillery and was wounded in action on July 12, 1863.

Okay, so they were black too.

Okay.

Wrong example. My mistake.

Under Reconstruction

Hey, where's all the stuff?

I am rebuilding the site from the ground up.

As of July 03, 2020, only basic blogging is implemented.

Features that were previously available—and a bunch of new ones—are still under (re)construction, and will be deployed gradually as soon as they are ready. That includes the site-wide search engine, the blogroll, membership registration and, well, more...

So all the stuff is coming back?

Yes, thank you for your patience.

Note that some of the legacy content (anything I published before the current redesign) may not display as expected—this will be addressed in the future.
