Time to heal our women, be real to our women And if we don’t we’ll have a race of babies That will hate the ladies, that make the babies And since a man can’t make one He has no right to tell a woman when and where to create one
Americans complain about politicians today yet continue to worship the ones of history like they were any fucking different than the pieces of shit we have in Congress/White House today.
George Washington owned hundreds of slaves. Pennsylvania had a gradual abolition law… but, oh… Washington got around that. The Washingtons would rotate their slaves in and out of the state every 6 months so that the slaves could never establish residency in Pennsylvania (called “dower slaves”). He sent weapons and money to the French slave masters during the Haitian Revolution… and he signed the Fugitive Slave Act, which allowed White slave masters re-enslave freemen (I guess he had just cause since his own slaves were also running away…Henry Washington, Oney Judge, Hercules…). Fuck him.
Abraham Lincoln was racist. He didn’t intend on freeing a damn soul.. and if it weren’t for the pompous idiot Southerners who were stupid enough to think they could secede and the work of Frederick Douglass and other abolitionists, Blacks would probably still be slaves today. And in the first place, Emancipation Proclamation only freed slaves in rebellion states, meaning, the states Lincoln had no reach or control over. “I will say then that I am not, nor ever have been in favor of bringing about in any way the social and political equality of the white and black races” Fuck him.
Today, White scholars try desperately to make Alexander Hamilton seem like a good guy. Idgaf if he spoke out against slavery sometimes, he owned slaves too. He owned another human beings’ life! He did support Toussaint Louverture in Haiti though. Maybe if he would have lived longer, he would have done more to redeem himself and this nation, but he got shot in a duel and died.
My fellow Tennessean Andrew Jackson was Hitler. He murdered Natives and stole their lands. And, slavery was the source of all his wealth. Of all the men on our currency, he is the most despicable and vile.
Ulysses S. Grant… Fought for the Union army. Tried to squash the KKK (but failed).. tried to enact a Civil Rights Act. Nothing bad about him, right? Wrong. He also owned slaves. And his infamous General Order No. 11 expelled all Jews from Kentucky, Tennessee and Mississippi (his area of military control). Under his presidency, Little Big Horn happened. Natives in the West were murdered and their land stolen under his watch. He mitigated his government’s Native policy of brutality. Fuck him.
Benjamin Franklin spoke about “liberty” but owned slaved for most of his life! Yeah, right before he died, he became an abolitionist … but what can we make of that when he also wrote that the importation of slaves will “darken” the American race, which should remain “lovely” and White. He was a huge anti-Semite. He argued that Jews should not be allowed in the country. Fuck him. And as much as America likes to slut shame, it’s odd that they put an international hoe like Franklin on their money.
Thomas Jefferson was a racist piece of shit. Nearly every fucking Black stereotype that we have to endure today can be found in Thomas Jefferson’s writings. How the fuck can you write “All men are created equal” and own slaves and believe Black people to be inferior at the same damn time? He wrote shit like Black women have big sexual appetites like primates in African jungles…. and yet at the same time, he’s fucking raping Sally Hemmings, his dead wife’s sister and his slave.
And Americans worship these men. They worship them. It’s disgusting. Until they take these politicians off U.S. money, the U.S. will continue to be the sham it’s always been. The American nightmare it’s always been.
And to any apologists out there.. who think “Well.. it was a different time.. blah blah blah.” Please, save me your naive cliched responses veiled in the racism of YOUR time. There were many people out there who didn’t believe what these men believed. There were many people who didn’t do this stuff. They spoke out against this stuff. The men themselves knew they were full of shit the moment they signed the version of the Constitution that didn’t have the slaves freedom included in it. They knew they were full of shit just like you know you’re full shit of shit today as you sit back and watch the prison industrial complex claim Black and Brown lives and as the military kills thousands of people abroad and you utter not one peep until Paula Deen is fired… then you’re outraged. Fuck you too.
ALL THIS ^
Praise This country will never be post racial. It is impossible as we force children to worship the evil deeds of evil men as just and pure and we hide all of their actions.
So my mom told me to record a song for her. She didn’t give specific instructions like what kind of song and she didn’t tell me not to fool around while singing, so there.. now’s my chance to do some impressions
