Sharing my reading tonight. Middle Passage Monday…sigh.
This is by far one of the heaviest nights of the week for me. Doing research on the specifics of the slave trade and the gruesome middle passage our ancestors endured before even making it to the “New World”.
So many emotions. This is going to be difficult. Share this information far and wide.
The Rothschilds control the global financial system and have accumulated their power by theft and exploitation. Their whole system is based on a gigantic fraud because there is no money, as we perceive it. The paper money and coins in your pocket are backed by nothing. Their value is only the value that we can be persuaded they have. They are just worthless pieces of paper (a promise-to-pay or promissory note) and pieces of metal that we are tricked into taking seriously. Most ‘money’ is not even something you can hold today. It is only figures on a computer screen - current-cy in every sense. 'Money’ is brought into circulation through what is called 'credit’, but what is this 'credit’? It is a belief-system, that’s all, a belief that it exists. The banks are not lending us anything and we are paying them fortunes to do so. The bloodline families, particularly the Rothschilds, have controlled governments and banking for centuries and they have been able to dictate the laws of the financial system and introduce what is called 'fractional reserve lending’. This allows banks to lend at least ten times what they have on deposit. In other words, they are lending 'money’ they don’t have and that doesn’t exist - called 'credit’ - and are charging interest on it. When you go to a bank to borrow, say £50,000, you have to provide 'collateral’ by signing over your house, land, car or business, and this will go to the bank if you don’t meet the repayments. What is the bank giving you in return for this? Nothing. It types into your account £50,000 and that’s it. The £50,000 doesn’t really exist - it is a line of non-existent 'credit’.
It needs saying that the rising death toll in Haiti is the result of an unnatural disaster. When the French colonized the place, it was the pearl of the Antilles. They imported slaves rapidly to build plantations, at some points amounting to more than a third of the New World slave trade. When they left, they demanded reparations for losing the property in bodies and land that amounted by 1900 to 80% of the national budget, paid by selling off the timber that kept hurricanes from devastating the island. By the time the debt was paid in 1947, the island was deep in a cycle of debt, deforestation, and military interventions by foreign powers that continues to this day. -Laura Briggs
The people of Yoruba (originally from Nigeria) brought their mythology and traditions to New World during the slave trade. As slaves, they were forced to believe in Christianity, however rather than dismissing their own beliefs, they merged the two. With this combination, Santería was born.
This video is a very fascinating look into the religion of Santería. The religion is often met with shock due to its animal sacrifices. As a result, Santeras choose to stay quiet about their beliefs and practices. From what I’ve gathered, it seems that the secretive lifestyle has led to stronger relationships with the Orishas. Rather than telling everyone else about their religion, more time is spent on the actual spiritual growth, making it very personal journey.
Maria is a photography project created by Turkish photographer Pinar Yolaçan. Pinar traveled to the Brazilian Island of Ithaparica in the state of Bahia, a 40 minute boat ride from the capital city of Salvador. The subjects of her portraits are all Afro-Brazilian women ranging from the ages of twenty-seven and ninety.
“I found a lot of inspiration in the African culture: Salvador was once the largest port for the slave trade in the New World, and while Ithaparica is one the poorest islands in Brazil’s rural northeast, people seemed very eccentric and sophisticated.”
“[Mara is] a very common Portuguese name of course, and is either the first or second name of almost all the women I photographed in Bahia, and of course, the icon of Mary is ever-present in Bahia. Women wear necklaces with the Virgin Mary’s face on them and decorate the walls of their homes and stores with her image. Obviously none of my models look like these traditional depictions of Maria, so I am referring to this religious icon when I call the women Maria. The title is also a commentary on the colonial process of renaming (or creating an identity for) people.”
“The women’s garments are made out of fabric I bought in local fabric stores and of placenta and other animal parts that I bought in Salvador’s São Joaquim market. I was particularly interested in placenta because it’s a female organ that develops during birth. Most of the clothes are inspired from the Baroque era and Portuguese colonial style architecture in Salvador. There is also lots of draping - similar to biblical statues.”
A BLOW HAS BEEN STRUCK AGAINST THE PROGRESSIVES IN EUROPE, CUCKS AGHAST!
Two days ago, on June 23rd, the United Kingdom voted in a referendum to leave the European Union, which it had been a part of for almost 40 years. This momentous decision has finally separated one of Europe’s more prosperous nations from the hulking, progressive/socialist morass that is the European Union. While there has been much celebration in conservative, traditionalist, monarchist, and patriotic corners, there remains the usual cucks who cannot abide the idea that anyone could break away from a free trade agreement for any reason.
“Diversity is our strength, the EU is only a free trade agreement, and Trump is an ebil nazi.” @yourconservativefriend
Notably absent from this list is @proudblackconservative, who has prominently featured on other lists. She has done the reasonable thing and largely excused herself from stating an opinion until she has done proper research, we on the right side of history commend this triumph of reason.
Since its conception, poetry has been a medium for one to express his or her deepest thoughts and concerns. Like many, Black Americans have used poetry to speak about their concerns and the injustices that they face in this country. The first slaves came to the New World in the early 17th century.
As a person who fully feels the world is all about labeling everyone (either by the extreme of bar codes or simply using naturally labels like our fingerprints) this song hits the sweet spot of paranoia for myself.
Slave New World was released off their Chaos A.D. album back in September of ‘93. The fighting passion of freedom can easily be lifted from the lyrics & pumped through anyone’s the heart & soul. Sepultura may not be the same as they were in 1993, but with Soulfly & Cavalera Conspiracy still thrashing out harder than ever, Max Cavalera always creates the grooves that bend my necks in ways that should probably break it in two!
