Now lets get to work people!!!
One of the reasons why I’m so driven to fulfill my destiny is because I believe we currently live in an advanced system of Slavery. A lot of people in this country view this as a free society and would seriously disagree with that statement. But ask yourself, are we really still slaves?
First let’s re-cap history for those who are slightly uneducated on the subject. Slavery began with civilization. It has truly been around since man ventured out from Africa and created social systems, starting with Greece, then Rome, Europe, Portugal then South America. It was the United States that perfected the system and created the advanced version we currently live in.
Slavery ruled this country from 1492, when Columbus arrived, until 1865 when the civil war ended. That’s 373 years! This country has only been in existence for 514 years, the first 3/4th of it was primarily slavery. It’s amazing how they teach American history without exclusively discussing this.
The first 200 years of slavery were rough for both sides. There were lots of riots and un-organization, partly due to communication barriers and ignorance. A turning point happened in 1712 when William Lynch, a West Indies slave owner, visited the south and delivered a speech (and pamphlets) called “How to make a slave” to the southern slave owners. For a short overview of this historic event, please refer tohttp://thetalkingdrum.com/wil.html.
His plan was simple. It was based on exploiting and exaggerating our differences (skin color, age, gender). He stated that white people must make the slaves trust only them and envy each other. He said that the slaves must depend on the white people for everything. He stated …. “While Rome used cords of wood as crosses for standing human bodies along its highways in great numbers, you are here using the tree and the rope on occasions. I caught the whiff of a dead slave hanging from a tree, a couple miles back. You are not only losing valuable stock by hangings, you are having uprisings, slaves are running away, your crops are sometimes left in the fields too long for maximum profit, you suffer occasional fires, and your animals are killed. Gentlemen, you know what your problems are; I do not need to elaborate. I am not here to enumerate your problems; I am here to introduce you to a method of solving them. In my bag here, I HAVE A FULL PROOF METHOD FOR CONTROLLING YOUR BLACK SLAVES. I guarantee every one of you that if installed correctly IT WILL CONTROL THE SLAVES FOR AT LEAST 300 HUNDREDS YEARS”.
If you read first hand accounts of life in this country after this event, you’ll see that this plan was not taken lightly. Slaves were given food and clothing allowances once a year. Families were systematically dismantled. Slavery became more systematic and structured, and the economy grew leaps and bounds. It wasn’t until the end of the civil war that the slavery system we knew of ended. The 13th amendment ended slavery in 1865; at least that’s what they tell us. I’ll get back to that one.
The next 100 years are foggy. Not much is taught of this period in time, besides the depression and the civil rights movement, which happened at the end of this 100 year period. There was a “reconstruction period” immediately following the end of the civil war. The government now had to decide what to do with black people. For almost 400 years they had convinced the country that we were not even real people. Through fabricated scientific studied, they determined that blacks were incapable of learning and developing morals, therefore GOD put us on this earth strictly for labor (in reference to the story of Ham in the bible). Now they were in charge of teaching and socializing us.
This was the start of the new advanced system of Slavery. Since they could no longer control us physically, they created a system to control us mentally. They had to determine what information they would make available to us. They had to re-write the school books. They could not let us read about Kings and Queens in Africa. They stopped all distribution of the Declaration of Independence. They could not let us read that “all men are created equal”. They extended their fabricated scientific studied and taught society that there was a pecking order of intelligence based on ethnic background. They taught that whites were superior and that blacks were at the bottom of the social barrel. They used derogatory terms to describe blacks in text books. They realized that if they taught us that we belonged at the bottom, we would make that our place. They removed any glimmer of light for us to strive for.
Another turning point was the great depression. After the stock market crashed, only a few people in this country were still wealthy. Those people invested their money into the Steel industry, the railroad industry, and the prison systems. This was the start of the large, warehouse type companies. None of these industries were big before the depression. At the turn of the century, 97% of the people in our country were self employed. You were either a farmer, a blacksmith, or a tradesman. Once you were old enough to work, you learned your family trade and contributed to the household. After the depression, the country revamped the way society thought about education and work. The government took charge of the direction of our economy and made sure it would prosper. The mentally changed to “get good grades, get a stable job, work until you’re 65 and your company will take care of you (pension)”. The government revised the entire education curriculum, mandated public school for children, and started creating workers.
Around this same time, the countries laws were changed to make sure slavery would also prosper, just in a cleaner version. This started the birth of Jim Crow laws and the prison system. Most prison are private and publicly held corporations. They are traded everyday on the stock market like every other public company. If you don’t believe me, here you gohttp://moneycentral.msn.com/content/P105034.asp . Laws were specifically created to imprison blacks or other minorities, strictly based on race or cultural differences. An example of this discrepancy is the “100 to 1 law” revolving cocaine. There is no difference between powder cocaine and crack, besides the way it enters your body. However in the federal sentencing guidelines, 1 gram of crack is equal to 100 grams of cocaine. There is no obvious reason for this discrepancy besides the differences in cultural use. This brings us back to the 13th amendment. The 13th amendment states……… Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction.
Slavery was outlawed unless you were convicted of a crime. If you have ever been in prison, you know that it’s identical to slavery. You have no control of your everyday life anymore. You work for practically free, doing jobs that would pay extremely well in regular society. Recently my brother (who’s serving a 15 year federal sentence for less than .1 gram of crack) worked a job recycling computer parts for $2 a week. Company’s normally pay millions of dollars for this service. He also told me of a hunger strike by the inmates due to unrealistic rising prices of the commissary list. This is the list of consumable items that prisons have pay for (soap, deodorant, etc). And guess who owned the company that supplied these good, Laura Bush, the 1st lady!!!
Right now in this country, if you’re convicted of any felony drug offense, you lose the right to vote, you probably can get decent housing or a job due to background checks, and as of February 2000, you cannot get financial aid for an education. All social opportunities to prosper are revoked. Then they put you in same community and watch you for 3-5 years. If you repeat the same crime, you start qualifying for mandatory sentencing. The prison systems love this idea. They make about $70 a day for every cell they have filled. They don’t want people who only have 3 years to serve. They want “career criminals” which equal constant cashflow! If you even had a relative in prison that was transferred to another jail for no reason, he was probably traded. This happens allot behind doors. A cleaner version of the slave trading block.
Let’s also briefly touch on the civil rights movement. Blacks were at their strongest during the 60’s. Although there wasn’t much cooperation, we had several strong organizations and leaders. All of these leaders were publicly assassinated during this decade. Let me explain why this was done. William Lynch covers this process of breaking a slave. To sum it up, he says……..
Take the strongest black men and publicly kill them in front of the black woman.
The black woman will remember what they do to black men who resist and she will teach her offspring to be passive and behave.
This is what happened to us in the 60’s. Our parents lived through this era. They saw what happened to black men who became voices. They watched what happened to Malcolm, Martin, Fred, Megar, anyone who stood up for our rights. Instead of passing this knowledge and struggle down to our generation, they taught us to be passive and behave. They told us “go to school, get good grade”. They relied on the public school system to educate us, which is why we know little about ourselves. My mother was big on education and did a lot of teaching at home. But she un-intentionally only taught me about creative black people (scientist, doctors, inventors). She never taught me about our struggle. I knew nothing of Nat Turner or Fredrick Douglass. I knew nothing of Malcolm X’s real message (don’t believe the movie!). My mother worked to bury any aggression I had within me.
This brings us to the present. 294 years after William Lynch gave his historic speech, where are we? We depend on white people for everything. Food, Clothing, media, education, employment, money………..everything. We do not control or produce any necessities in our life. The only thing we do control is our churches, and we don’t even organize them. We don’t trust each other and we feed off envy. We’re even prejudice against other shades of black people! We only make up 13% of the population, yet 90% of the prison system. Right now there are more black men in prison than in college.
This country has created a well oiled machine. We produce a workforce of ignorant laborers. They don’t teach people to create companies and add jobs to our economy. They tell you to go to school and get good grades so you can get a job. In actually, all the labor jobs are being outsourced oversees to avoid taxes. They want you to work until your 65, accumulate as much debt as possible, and hopefully your 401k will be enough for you to make it. They don’t even teach credit in high school, yet this entire country depends on it.
The government can spend billions on space research and wars because they can count on the 25% of our paycheck that they take every month. Instead of using black people for labor, they decided to just use every race. They structured the education system to teach minorities just enough to be a worker. The use the media to sway public opinion to support anything unethically law they’re trying to pass. Then they create bias laws to imprison groups that they don’t like. They tell us it’s a democracy, yet 40 of the last 43 presidents were directly related to Henry the 8th from England. Remember people, this country was a part of Britain for the first 300 years! Our last two candidates were actually cousins (Bush and Kerry)! (pre-Obama)
William Lynch said….. “Ancient Rome would envy us if my program is implemented…….. I guarantee every one of you that if installed correctly IT WILL CONTROL THE SLAVES FOR AT LEAST 300 HUNDREDS YEARS”
As I originally stated, I believe we currently live in an advanced system of Slavery. I ask you again, are we still slaves?
