A lot things were done in the past out of fear and the need to be superior, but in this age and time when all know that man is man no matter his race. Any white that still thinks they’re a superior race is dumb as a brick.


Where are the ones that kill black people , just for a sport or just a laugh . The white people in these photos , most of them are long gone , I just wonder where there soul resting it . This is a place in life , that will never return now .


My dad got called a ni**er before WW2, volunteered on the first anniversary of Pearl Harbor, entered a segregated US Army, got called a ni**er there, spent three years in the South Pacific where he found islanders had been told Negro troops had tails, got out in 1945, came home…and still got called a ni**er.

I got called the same thing two weeks ago. So don’t get ahead of yourselves thinking we’ve had “progress”. We’ve changed the veneer coat: the wood’s still the same in a lot of places.

I’m a jewish man and I can say that all the so called white people in those pictures a jewish people. Read a book called the secret relationship between blacks and Jews. We were the ones who brought them into slavery guys like Moses Levy and Aaron Lopez. We dominated the slave trade. The blacks, hispanics, and native americans are the true children of Israel they make up the 12 tribes of Israel. They’re suffering the curses of Deuteronomy 28:15-68. Us Jewish people are just converts we are really Khazars.

After chattel slavery is not existing and there is Reconstruction crowds of people decide to lynch people for being black, or having too much material goods. God has his or her picks?
