Did you know J. Marison Sims a.k.a “The Father of Modern Gynecology” USED AFRICAN WOMEN DURING SLAVERY FOR SURGICAL EXPERIMENTS? Sims medical experiments on black women created a cure for “vesicovaginal fistula,” which allowed him to detect and cure illnesses such as cancer before it became deadly. He did not provide the slaves with anesthetic or medicine to numb their pain during these procedures, and if one of them died from complications or excessive bleeding, he simply replaced them with another slave. Because slaves were not seen as fully human and considered “private property”, it was completely legal for slaves to be subjected to all sorts of violence and medical experiments.
Learning about these horrific things makes my heart heavy, but I refuse TO HIDE THESE HISTORICAL FACTS. I will NOT allow my ancestors brutal experiences to remain unnoticed just because some people feel uncomfortable when the history of slavery is discussed. I also want people to understand that slavery wasn’t just about people being raped and forced to work for free for 400 years. The MOST devastating thing about slavery was the PSYCHOLOGICAL TERROR that blacks endured. Nothing compares to being kidnapped from your homeland, sold and treated as “property,” having your families divided for a lifetime, raped and brutalized to the fullest extent, used as medical experiments, and experienced psychological terror everyday for CENTURIES. Many African-Americans STILL SUFFER FROM POST TRAUMATIC SLAVE SYNDROME.
ALOT of people are UNAWARE THAT SLAVERY WAS LESS THAN 150 years ago, which is NO MORE than 3 generations ago. The transatlantic slave trade started in the 1400s and slavery legally ended in 1865 in the U.S.. That is over 400 years of social engineering, brainwashing, and terror that blacks have endured. This dysfunctional behavior has been passed down from generation to generation, and unfortunately it is going to take MORE THAN 150 years to properly reverse this mindset. Blacks NEVER received psychological therapy AFTER they were legally free. They were just forced to “get over it” and “move on,” and of course we all SHOULD KNOW about the horrors of the Jim Crow Era, AND racism today. Blacks really never had a chance to reinvent themselves because they have ALWAYS been under attack in America. I REFUSE to ignore or downplay my ancestor’s experiences. STOP allowing others to tell you how to feel about YOUR HISTORY, especially since it plays a critical role in our condition as a people TODAY—economically, socially, and mentally.

Absolutely NOTHING has changed except the years. These photos are not only disturbing to look at, they prove that prison is a form of modern day slavery and that Nina Simone was correct when she said, “slavery has never been abolished from America’s way of thinking”. Welcome to the New Jim Crow.
death by pussy.
the most heavenly way to die
Pussy so clean it steam pressed a nigga.
And they don’t even think about it. Don’t talk too loud, don’t make too many requests, don’t complain too forcefully about shitty service, put up with weird ass slightly racial compliments. And sometimes we joke about it like “lol! Better not do (normal human thing) cuz then people might think we’re uncivilized niggers” but it’s a painful constricting way to live. And not a type of way of living that non-Black people will understand
Their power is built on the sweat of our backs. The only reason you and I in this country is ‘cause our great-great-grandpas couldn’t run fast enough. We’ll never be welcome here. — Marie Laveau (3x07)
"MODERN DAY LYNCHINGS"
Kody (Pretty Boy) Ingham (pictured above) was found hanging from a tree in front of his white girlfriends house on July 15, 2013 (the same night as the George Zimmerman verdict) in Athens, Texas. it was chalked up as a suicide and no investigation ensued, even though two hours prior he called his mother to pick him up from the site he died at. no newspaper article, just a four sentence obituary in the local papers and his family has been trying hard to make any mainstream news channel blow up the story to find the killers.
Roy Veal was found hanging in Woodville, Mississippi in 2004. he originally lived in Seattle and went to his mother’s home in Woodville to help her fight for the rights to their family land against a white man. Oil had been found underneath the land.
Roy’s head was covered with a pillow case and burned papers of the documented proof he had to prove his mothers’ ownership were found burned at his feet. He was later found hanging from a tree. His death was ruled a suicide.
His family is still trying to get attention for the case
Reynard Johnson, 17, was found hanging from a tree on his front lawn on June 16, 2000 in Kokomo, Mississippi. His death was ruled a suicide even though the belt around his neck was not his. Authorities said since no hate group left a message by the body, there was nothing to investigate. Family members said the motive was his relationship with a white girl, he was constantly being harassed because of this.
