Obama opens African-American museum in Washington DC


I gotta watch the entire video - - - see how things lean.


However, I have no doubt slavery will surface; and that will be enlightening, if President Obama tells the entire story. We shall see.


  • When it comes to history, our president seems to be quite the expert at leaving out critical - in stone - documented facts.

I remember his emphasizing how Christians killed in the Name of Christ during the Crusades; but I do not remember him stating why.

This is an African-American Heritage Museum, Jimbo; if it does not mention Irish enslaved and sent to the Caribbean, well, keep in mind, that is not African history or American history, at least not in the sense that the British Caribbean is part of the USA. It is not the National Slavery Museum.

 

All knowledge is preferable to all ignorance, in any case and this museum is a great addition to the Smithsonian and the other museums in DC.

 

If you want an Irish Heritage Museum I am all for that.

I was just about to post this, but I see jimsouth beat me to it, so I'll tack it on his thread.

National Museum of African American History and Culture.

Adding further to his legacy, President Obama has seen to it that in his term of President of the United States of America the National Museum of African American History and Culture would be opened in Washington D.C.

(Full article at above link)

WASHINGTON - On Wednesday, journalists who flooded into the 400,000-square foot edifice got a sneak peek at the museum’s galleries ahead of the Sept. 24 grand opening.

As you walk up a ramp to “A Changing America: 1968 and Beyond,” you’ll see a photo of Obama’s inauguration.

As you descend, the timeline will lead you back into history, past President Barack Obama’s 2008 election, through the civil rights movement and Jim Crow. You’ll glide past Reconstruction, the Civil War and the height of African enslavement in the New World. Soon, the elevator will reach its destination: the belly of the National Museum of African American History and Culture.

Near the entrance of “Slavery and Freedom,” you’ll read about the hellish Middle Passage.

You’ll pass by exhibits explaining the Trans-Atlantic slave trade, where enslaved Africans were stowed like livestock in the bottoms of ships. You’ll see a glass display housing pounds of sugar, and a display honoring Crispus Attucks and other black patriots. Then you’ll walk out of the museum’s deepest pit, into the light, where a statue of Thomas Jefferson and three of his slaves will greet you. Behind Jefferson is a pile of bricks, each with a name emblazoned on it ― one brick for each slave who built Monticello, the former president’s primary plantation. The shackles at the base of the exhibit will catch your eye as Jefferson, who once wrote that “all men are created equal,” gazes off at something on the horizon.

Go up a ramp, past a mural of a cotton field dotted with workers, and you’ll find a gallery dedicated to the post-Emancipation period ― a time when black people were freed from chains only to find themselves, in many cases, bound by nooses. “Defending Freedom, Defining Freedom: Era of Segregation 1876-1968” shows the violence, as well as the prosperity, of black life after enslavement.

This gallery moves fast. The bravery of Rep. John Lewis (D-Ga.) and a dress made by the courageous Rosa Parks share space with a shard of stained glass from the bombed 16th Street Baptist Church. You’ll be awestruck by the gutsy Anita Hill, who stood up for sexual assault victims ― especially black women, who are less likely to report their sexual assaults than any other demographic ― in her testimony against aspiring Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas in 1991. The beating of Rodney King by Los Angeles police officers is also here, as is the gross government negligence before and after Hurricane Katrina. You’ll read about Trayvon Martin’s death and the rise of Black Lives Matter. And finally, you’ll see memorabilia from Obama’s presidency.

Traveling through the museum, you’ll be confronted, at every turn, with the realities of black struggle, black strength and black excellence. At a moment when some people seem openly committed to the idea of making the U.S. into a whites-only lunch counter, you must realize how vital it is that a place like this exists. No one who visits this museum can fail to understand that black people have been a part of America every step of the way, helping to make this country what it is.

The point I wanted to make is, the first slaves to the Amercias & the Colonies were white; but not a peep from a single politician, unless it involves black slavery. Tell the entire story or tell nothing.

The first black slaves arrived in America in the early years of the 17th Century.

At the time of the ratification of the Constitution in 1788, there were less than 50,000 slaves in America – – and the vast majority of them were white.

The white slaves not indentured, who began to arrive here in 1618, included hundreds of children – – waifs and strays – – who had been rounded up from streets of London to serve wealthy farmers in Virginia.

Sorry, Barack, but white slavery pre-dates black slavery in America. This fact has been verified by forensic evidence from archaeological digs and historical documents uncovered by contemporary scholars, including Don Jordan and Michael Walsh inWhite Cargo (New York University Press: 2009).

Other slaves came from the ranks of the homeless and the poor, whom King James I held responsible for spreading the plague, and from England’s swelling prison population.

The scheme was supported by James I, who believed the homeless and itinerant of London were spreading plague.

Of the first 300 white slaves to land in Virginia, only 12 managed to survive four years. The others died of ill treatment, disease, attack by native Americans or overwork.

Contemporary records show that one child victim, Elizabeth Abbott, was beaten to death when her master ordered her to be given 500 lashes for running away.

At least 70,000 white men, women, and children from England and Ireland were shipped to the colonies to be sold as slaves on the auction block during the 170 years of British rule.

White slaves transported to the colonies suffered a staggering loss of life in the 17th and 18th century. During the voyage to America, the white slaves were kept below deck for the entire nine to twelve week journey. They were chained with 50 other men to a board, with padlocked collars around their necks. The weeks of confinement below deck in the ship’s stifling hold often resulted in outbreaks of contagious disease, including cholera and dysentery.

Ships carrying white slaves to America often lost half their slaves to death. According to historian Sharon V. Salinger of the University of California, Riverside, “Scattered data reveal that the mortality for [white] servants at certain times equaled that for [black] slaves in the ‘middle passage,’ and during other periods actually exceeded the death rate for [black] slaves.”

Ms. Salinger affirms a death rate of ten to twenty percent over the entire 18th century for black slaves on board ships en route to America compared with a death rate of 25% for white slaves.

Foster R. Dulles in Labor in America writes that white slaves “experienced discomforts and sufferings on their voyage across the Atlantic that paralleled the cruel hardships undergone by negro slaves on the notorious Middle Passage.”

Dulles says the whites were “indiscriminately herded aboard the ‘white guinea men,’ often as many as 300 passengers on little vessels of not more than 200 tons burden–overcrowded, unsanitary…The mortality rate was sometimes as high as 50% and young children seldom survived the horrors of a voyage which might last anywhere from seven to twelve weeks.”

Independent investigator A.B. Ellis in the Argosy writes concerning the transport of white slaves, “The human cargo, many of whom were still tormented by unhealed wounds, could not all lie down at once without lying on each other. They were never suffered to go on deck. The hatchway was constantly watched by sentinels armed with hangers and blunder busses. In the dungeons below all was darkness, stench, lamentation, disease and death.”

In the past, white slavery was acknowledged as having existed in America only as “indentured servitude.”

Such indentured servants were, for the most part, convicts, who served a term of four to seven years laboring on the farms, plantations, and estates in Virginia, Georgia, Maryland, and the Carolinas in exchange for their freedom. But they represented only a small fraction of the hundreds of thousands of whites who remained slaves for life. Such slavery was hereditary: the while children of the white slaves also became chattel without hope of freedom.

In George Sandy’s laws for Virginia, Whites were enslaved “forever.” The service of Whites bound to Berkeley’s Hundred was deemed “perpetual.”

Throughout the colonial period, white slaves remained the main labour force on the Virginia and Maryland plantations, outnumbering Africans by as many as four to one.

Benjamin Franklin suggested the American authorities should send rattlesnakes back to England in return for such unwelcome imports.

Whites remained slaves until the Emancipation Proclamation. In 1855.

At present, several African American groups are seeking reparations from the United States government for the time their ancestors spent as slaves. One group, the African World Reparations and Repatriation Truth Commission, is demanding an astronomical $777 trillion.

Ocala’s Trinity United Church of Christ has passed a resolution demanding reparations and declaring that:

“WHEREAS: The institution of Slavery is internationally recognized as crime for which there is no statute of limitations, AND

WHEREAS: Uncompensated labor was demanded from enslaved Africans and their descendants for more than two centuries on U.S. soil; AND

WHEREAS: The principle that reparations is the appropriate remedy whenever government unjustly abrogates the rights of a domestic group or foreign people whose rights such government is obligated to protect or uphold has been internationally recognized…”

Michelle Obama, no doubt, expects a sizeable check from Uncle Sam since Jim Robinson, her great-great grandfather worked as a slave on a sprawling rice plantation in Georgetown, South Carolina.

I would like a check in a substantially greater amount for my Irish ancestors who were subjected to similar indignities.


Frederic Law Olmsted, the landscape architect who designed New York’s Central Park, was in Alabama on a pleasure trip and saw bales of cotton being thrown from a considerable height into a cargo ship’s hold. The men tossing the bales somewhat recklessly into the hold were Negroes; the men in the hold were Irish.

Olmsted inquired about this to a ship worker. “Oh,” said the worker, “the [African-American slur] are worth too much to be risked here; if the Paddies are knocked overboard or get their backs broke, nobody loses anything.”

This is not an Irish American Slave Museum, Jimbo.

It is an African-American Heritage Museum.

 

If you want a museum to Irish slaves, then propose it and raise money for it, Jimbo.

 

 

There is no way that you can undo this museum, Jimbo.

 

 

You are not in any dialog with President Obama here, Jimbo, you are just talking to yourself.

Irish slavery is not a part of this country's official history. You are the first and only person I have ever heard mention it. And I have Irish ancestors just as you do.

 

Most of the Irish who came here came as a result of the Potato Famine, and not as slaves.

It can't be, since it would level the slavery field; and liberals fear that like the plague. That in stone truth has been struck from our history books for some time.

Liberal 101 - - - the only slaves in the recorded history of the planet, were blacks on white owned southern American plantations.

Blacks who were also slave owners in the Americas do not count.

It would be great if all Americans could work together to improve our country and the world. George W. Bush attended the opening of the National Museum of African American History and Culture. He seems on friendly terms with the current President.

It's sad to see past relationships that have grown so embittered. Less than 10 years ago, Zilla was sucking Dubya's dick every chance he could. Now nothing but animosity. At least he has found a new cock to suck, Trump's. It's one schlong after another. Not the way I choose to live my life, but I don't judge con homos.

Our hallowed National Mall has been desecrated by the despicable intrusion of more pathetic, craven pandering to the screeching, writhing, kinky-haired, red-eyed, monkey-lipped, bastard-born, shiftless nigqer horde.

 

It's called The National Museum of Nigqer Pathologies.

 

When we visited, the place was swarming with unclean, foul-smelling, no-IQ, surly bubble-butt bongo bunnies.

 

Visitors enter through the Hall of Endless Grievances, where the walls are covered with examples of the hoogaboogas' marginalization, dehumanization and oppression by "dem what debbil oh-pressers."

 

Next we came to the Baby-Shaking Gallery, where enraged shimebo boogerboys hurl babey shitskins against the walls and ceiling.

 

Moving along, we entered the Barry Hussein Soetoro Mohammad Oblabla Junior Chamber of Nigqer Hate, where docents explain that the little latrine lizard's rage is fueled by his lifelong craving for honky penises in all his orifaces.

 

Particularly enjoyable is the O.J. Simpson Room, where bruthas in football jerseys demonstrate the bloody slaughter of a 110-pound white hoe and a 145-pound kike boy with a hunting knife.

 

One of our favorites is the Shrine To Mammyjabbin' Homeboyz. The time-honored tradition of adolescent thugbos mounting their dirty fathog babymommas is traced through nigqer history, with giant blowup photos of porch monkeys including Elijah Cummings, Harry Belafonte and Nigqer Tom riding their screeching, smelly old sheboons.

 

We spent a long time in the Niggurlicker Hall of Fame, where we watched Barbra Streisand, Hillary Clinton, Bill DeBlasio, Bonnie Fwank and others of their kind excitedly performing oral sex on sullen hoochiemommas and homies.

 

At the exit, we received our goody bag which included the latest Apple sail fawn, a lifetime supply of food stamps, eight ballots pre-marked for Hillary and an autographed photo of Rodney King.

 

Come on down and pay your respects to our violent, ranting, parasitic mudskin tribe.

 

Know what we mean?

Au contraire: everyone knows about this. There was an episode of "A Different World" that went into as much detail as any sitcom show could.

 

Again, if you want an Irish Slave Museum, then raise the money and make friends with some congressmen.

 

Irish slaves are NOT something that has anything to do with an African American Museum.


Steelfoot is a disgusting Kluxer.

 

I cybernetically throw up on his shoes: BLAUGGGH!

We bet you are a nigqer boy. A cowardly, squat-to-piss, no-IQ, bastard-born, screeching, writhing, babyshaking nigqer parasite.

 

We defecate on you and your kind.

 

Want to do something about it, huh? HUH?

 

Know what we mean?
