    Re: Which had a greater impact on you....Slavery or Colonialism?

    No one knows the hour or the day of the Black landing. But there is not the slightest doubt about the month. John Rolfe, who betrayed Pocahontas and experimented with tobacco leaves, was there; and he said, in a letter to his superior, that the ship arrived "about the latter end of August" in 1619. Rolfe had a nose for nicotine, but he was obviously deficient in historical matters, for he added gratuitously that the ship "brought not anything but 20 and odd Negroes." Concerning which the most charitable thing to say is that John Rolfe was probably pulling his superior's leg. For in the context of the meaning of America, it can be said without exaggeration that no ship ever called at an Amer-ican port with a more important cargo. In the hold of that ship, in a manner of speaking, was the whole gorgeous panorama of Black America, was jazz and the spirituals and the Electric Slide. Bird was there and Bigger and Malcolm and millions of other X's and crosses, along with Mahalia singing, Gwendolyn Brooks rhyming, Duke Ellington composing, James Brown grunting, Paul Robeson emoting, and Michael Jordan dunking. It was all there in embryo in the 160-ton ship.

        the spanish were out there floating around - "discovering" the not lost [img]/forums/images/graemlins/blush.gif[/img]

        i think the spanish are also credited for discovering jamaica - at least that's what it says at Discovery Point outside Mo'Bay

        it's interesting that the jamaican "slaves" were freed first - same enslavement country - although on a visit to Accompong Town (which technically is not Jamaica)the colonel said the whole treaty was bogus and the maroons ended up high in the mountains with no beach [img]/forums/images/graemlins/70367-help.gif[/img]

                          Lot to learn. Let me get this right. I should be consumed with what happened in the past and with how whites have treated blacks and sit here thinking on Africa and so on instead of living my life as a freespirit Black woman that happens to be HAPPY with who I am and not want to define myself based on whites. White people are extremely happy, love themselves and will never feel shame for the past particularly because their societies are advanced and the countries they have taken over are advanced and most will ALWAYS believe blacks are inferior as long as we DEPEND on them and focus on them and can't work with each other.

                          Stop giving white people so much power, they are not Gods, they are human beings and the real issue is how can we work to get our group out of poverty and dependence on them, not the past, how they view us and so on because they will never change.

                            if you were that free spirited, you would be able to look at the past without having fits.

                            man yu na think yu a generalize too far? hiow do you know that white people are extremely happy unless you presume that them happier than you? how do you know that they love themselves? Why are they most likely to commit suicide per statistics if that was the case? I dare ask whose soceity is not advanced? [img]/forums/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img] And furthermore in many European countries white people live in worse conditions than in the worse ghetto in our region, so you see what you want to see respective of your current state. Why do you care what white people think? How do you prefer that they see you and why is it important that they see you this way? The work together judgement is depending on your own current needs and nobody else's so cut out de WE cause you clearly na care fart bout what we as a people went through [img]/forums/images/graemlins/704555_dwl.gif[/img]
