“The way to right wrongs is to turn the light of truth upon them.” Black History Month

In Sumterville, Florida, in 1902, after a black man named Henry Wilson was convicted of murder after a trial lasting just two hours and 40 minutes, the judge promised the mob of armed white men filling the courtroom that the ordered death sentence would be carried out by public hanging—though that violated state law. When the execution was set for a later date, the mob threatened vigilante action. In response, Florida officials quickly moved up the date, authorized Wilson to be hanged before a jeering mob, and congratulated themselves on the “avoided” lynching.

Provoked Question?

Was the NEW TESTAMENT of the BIBLE introduced to ensure that white supremacy would endure with the turn the other cheek philosophical teachings of Jesus Christ? Also did the NEW TESTAMENT had the philosophical structures of waiting until heaven to receive your blessings and giving a pass to racism with the atonement of Jesus Christ for the sins of man by being put to death on the cross? The OLD TESTAMENT also was vicious in the way GOD treated those of his enemies and protected the enslaved. Also, it seems the OLD TESTAMENT was about seeking revenge and casting out evil by any means necessary and white supremacy could be considered quite evil and that evil needed to be cast aside. So, the originators of white supremacy understand that human dilemma and create the NEW TESTAMENT to provide both the enslaver and the enslaved a solution that would keep both in their place. As well as allow white supremacy to be imperial in conquest and yet still righteous with the talk of loving your brother while at the time being able to oppress them with righteous rightness."

Day Six Black History Month Salute Bryan Stevenson's Scholarly Work


“In 1863 the Negro was granted freedom from physical slavery through the Emancipation Proclamation. But he was not given land to make that freedom meaningful. At the same time, our government was giving away millions of acres of land in the Midwest and the West, which meant that the nation was willing to undergird its white peasants from Europe with an economic floor, while refusing to do it for its Black peasants from Africa who were held in slavery two hundred and forty four years. And this is why Frederick Douglass would say that emancipation for the Negro was freedom to hunger, freedom to the winds and rains of heaven, freedom without roofs to cover their heads. It was freedom without bread to eat, without land to cultivate. It was freedom and famine at the same time. And it is a miracle that the Negro has survived.”354
Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Chapter 5 see the absolute end of black reconstruction after the Compromise of 1877. Our black ancestors in the south and throughout the nation are left at the mercy of murderous white mobs bent on returning the racist ideals to power by any means necessary.
