"Anthropology tells us that early agricultural tribes made their women the star actresses in orgiastic fertility rites and that their descendants deified an Earth Mother who was the author of all life." Dorothy Dunbar Bromley, 1929

Many of the descendants of the Clotilda slave ship live a few miles from where it was discovered in the Mobile River. The community of Africatown was founded around 1868 by 30 of the Africans brought on the ship.

Antifa is far more dangerous than the “fascists” they purport to be fighting. Antifa thugs are, in fact, the true descendants of Mussolini’s blackshirts and Hitler’s brownshirts. They ARE the fascists! #AntifaDomesticTerrorists 

This nation was born with lofty ideals, but also with murderous subjugation of those in bondage, and their descendants. Racism has rent the justice of our national fabric ever since. The burden to right these injustices must fall most heavily on the privileged not the oppressed.
