Patrice LaMumba was executed by the US. It was ordered by the CIA who at the time was under the direction of Bush Sr.

His body was dissolved in a vat of sulphur.



Our US government tried to blackmail Coretta Scott King by sending her pictures of the white woman her husband was sleeping with. They wanted her to convince MLK Jr. to commit suicide as his popularity had gained incredible momentum.

I've mentioned this before but traditionally it is not the color 'black' that is worn to funerals. It is white.

For those who live in Atlanta, the very popular area called "Buckhead" with all its glitz and glam was actually named such because white men used to bring their wives and children and literally chase and eventually murder young "bucks" and that was their neighborhood festival.

I have more but I'm at work.

The Emancipation Proclamation That Wasn't: Abraham Lincoln In Wonderland

Every schoolchild knows that two and two is four and that Abraham Lincoln freed the slaves.

The arithmetic is sound, but the history is false.

Abraham Lincoln was not the great emancipator or the small emancipator or the economy-sized emancipator.

And contrary to what almost all kindergartens and universities have taught for the last 136 years, the Emancipation Proclamation did not free the slaves and was never intended to free the slaves

Nobody knew this better than Lincoln, who deliberately drafted the document so that it "freed" the slaves in Confederate-controlled areas where he couldn't free them and left them in slavery in Union-held areas where he could have freed them.

To make sure there was no confusion about what he was doing, Lincoln said in the document that he was personally excluding slaves in 13 Louisiana parishes, including New Orleans, seven Virginia counties, including Norfolk, and 48 West Virginia counties. Also excluded by order of "the great emancipator" were the 276,000 slaves in the state of Tennessee. Since the proclamation did not apply to slaves in "loyal" Border States (Maryland, Missouri, Kentucky and Delaware), the document everybody praises and nobody reads did little if any emancipating.

The panther 21 was tried and made into political prisoners and charged with conspiracy to blow up the New York Botanical Gardens, department stores, etc. However, the were all aqquited of all charges because the jury saw the bullshyt.


If that was not enough, months later, the panthers were raided again and killed by NYPD. The NYPD claimed that it was self defense but later evidence showed that those murdered were murdered in their sleep.
