Rush said today on his show that white guilt needs to end, though he really doesn’t believe it will. But he makes the case why Caucasians, of all people, shouldn’t feel guilt about slavery.

    Bingo!

  • nhLevinitized

    It was 1700’s England that, for the first time in human history, came up with the intellectual case that slavery was morally wrong – and they get no credit for it, in fact, they get just the opposite treatment. It ws ENGLAND whom, for the first time ever, sent it’s Navy out to sea in an attempt to halt the slave trade. Slavery was once the norm, people were warring and enslaving the conquered all the time.
    England, aka, white people, started the ball rolling that ended slavery!

    • Laurel A

      nhLevinitized Actually England got the idea from the religious people in America…ya know the one’s they kicked out. And while I give England credit be aware it was an easy leap to make since there weren’t too many slaveholders in England due to the class system they practiced.

  • IvanCardona

    Slavery has been practiced for thousands of years by all sorts of people in Europe, Asia, and Africa particularly. The Egyptians, the Greeks, Assyrians,The Romans, African Tribes had slaves. Blacks sold slaves to the Spanish. It is not unique to Caucasians. But what do we expect from ignoramuses who don’t know history. God tolerated it among the ancient Jews but regulated it to make it much more humane, the equivalent of an indentured servant who was protected against abuse and extreme poverty. Christians were greatly responsible for it’s end in the Americas and Europe.

    • nhLevinitized

      IvanCardona And the only reason blacks were the sought after people as slaves a few hunderd years ago was because Africa was the final place on Earth that didn’t have established Nation States with functioning governments, organized armies, and advanced technology. It’s because they were the easiest peoples left to conquer, not BECAUSE THEY WERE BLACK.

      • bfunk

        nhLevinitized IvanCardona True that. I just read about that. It’s very interesting talking to Africans about the slavery in America. All they do is shrug their shoulders and point out all the tribal animosity that still exists… Not to mention the slavery. Gosh, Kenya- in 2007 I believe- had tribe vs tribe violence over an election which didn’t end up doing anything for the country. I’m with you guys and Rush, I’m not even going to feel bad anymore.

    • notpilgrims

      IvanCardona Blacks who sold slaves to the Spanish were wrong, as were whites who held slaves in America under a racist system.

    • notpilgrims

      IvanCardona Also, you said that God tolerated slavery. I’m not sure he did. God is supposedly good, not bad. Usually it’s liberals who say God supports slavery. Anyway, if you are write that God tolerated slavery then God is a terrible anti-freedom entity who supported slavery.

      • IvanCardona

        notpilgrims IvanCardona God never endorsed certain practices of ancient societies and he was not going to yet act to eradicate such since he gave mankind the freedom to do as they will and suffer the consequences thereof to show that man, independent of God, cannot succeed as history has shown. In view of that, God tolerated such things as slavery in a greatly more modified and humane way as well as polygamy until his time to eradicate such among his people. Some misapplied scripture to support slavery but as Jesus said: the truth shall set you free. Christians who realized the evil of modern slavery saw the truth and worked toward it’s end as Abraham Lincoln did. There are more extensive articles on the Bible and Slavery you can read. The Apologetics Press site, for example, discusses the Biblical view on slavery in some articles.

  • Army_Pilot1967

    The Left and blacks aren’t going to let the slavery issue fade away, they’re going to keep it on the front burner forever.  And they have managed to saddle the Republican party with being the “slave” party if you will.  They blame Republicans for every sin ever committed against blacks, even though it was the Democrats that tried their best to keep blacks from voting, from integrating schools, from gaining meaningful employment, and on and on….yet nowadays too many uninformed people (which number in the millions) believe the Democrats were the blacks’ savior and the Republicans want the country to go back to the 1940s/1950s.  Blacks are totally convinced that the Democrat party really cares about them…which we know isn’t true at all.

  • RobertJohnson3

    Slavery IS still an issue: the DEMOCRATS have brainwashed many black Americans into being “vote slaves”. That is why the marxists / democrats deliberately destroyed the black family and churches and tried their best to make black and all Americans dependent on government.

  • Laurel A

    For once someone has the nerve to state the history correctly including about the American Indians.
    BRAVO RUSH!

  • IvanCardona

    Inner city blacks as well as many hispanics are still in slavery to the idea they are still being oppressed by the system or whites encouraged by the race hustlers. They fail to note the large number who stayed in school or returned to school and studied hard to be Judges, teachers, surgeons and so on even though they grew up in poverty under the same conditions. The president is black. Without whites, he would never have gotten to be the president.

  • notpilgrims

    Americans (white Americans) held black slaves your many years. That was wrong. However, we don’t hold slaves anymore, and there isn’t much white-on-black racism in society. Today’s Americans aren’t to blame for the mistakes of past Americans.
    So, basically, we shouldn’t feel “guilty” for what we haven’t done, but we should still remember that it was wrong, and it seems like Rush is trying to say that If any race of people should not feel guilty, white people shouldn’t feel guilty. Well, he’s wrong, because white people have also held slaves, and because no race should feel guilty of slavery period.

    • PNWShan

      notpilgrims He’s saying that the Caucasians were the first to end slavery.

      • notpilgrims

        PNWShan notpilgrims Give individual Caucasians credit for ending slavery in America and Britain. After individual Caucasians help people as slaves for many years.
        I think if you look back at American history and culture, there were many great things that Americans did–far more than most countries–but imperialism and slave trade were, on the whole, not good things.

    • toongoon

      notpilgrims  
      White people shouldn’t feel guilty. Every race has been held as slaves and every race has been slave holders at some point in history. However, only one race continues to hold themselves down as if they were still slaves. 
      American blacks have created for themselves an entire sub culture that keeps them from entering into the freedom that every other race and culture embraces in the United States.

      • notpilgrims

        toongoon notpilgrims I agree white people alive today shouldn’t feel guilty. No one should feel guilty for what they didn’t do. People shouldn’t feel collective guilt for what their race does, either, only for what they individually did.
        What Rush said was, “IF any race of people should not have guilt…” He said “IF.” He was suggesting (irrationally, it must be said) that some race should feel guilty and some shouldn’t. 
        If we are talking about slavery–particularly slavery in America–then we have to talk about the racism that caused slavery in America IN THE PAST.

        • toongoon

          notpilgrims toongoon 
          As long as there is this sub culture led by leaders who do nothing but encourage their followers to be victims and a media to to keep the anger fresh there will no healthy debate about race. Blacks will continue to feel more and more helpless until they become violent. 
          The result will not be good for them.  The politicians and their leaders know it but they don’t care. They are the party of Margaret Sanger, they have no use for what they consider undesirables. They are only a means to an end.

  • Nukeman

    I have no problem these days with someone calling me racist. I have absolutely NO white guilt. I just smile at the person who calls me that, knowing that it is he and/or she who is the racist in thinking those thoughts. I care little about the color of one’s shoes r the color of their skin.
    Now the color of their heart is a different matter. The content of one’s character is all that matters in these cases and many of those that call me racist have no character whatsoever, so I care not for their position on the subject. 
    Are you listening, Rev (?!?) Jackson and Sharpton?

  • Fen

    Blacks are their own worst enemy with white guilt and this harping on about slavery.  While they sit there stewing in it and letting it hold them back, other races and ethnicities like the Chinese are powering ahead with their lives and have no interest listening to blacks piss and moan about something that ended 150 years ago.  While other races of people move forward into the future, blacks will be passed up and left in the proverbial dust and will fail as a race because they couldn’t let go of the past.

    • PNWShan

      Fen That victim mentality held by many blacks is somewhat similar to the mentality of Muslims who can’t admit that THEY are the CAUSE of their own societal backwardness. The only reason there is any wealth in those countries now is because of oil. But Muslims always blame Westerners for their problems – or Israelis – and never sharia and never their own penchant for dictators.

    • tpaine76

      Fen Makes one wonder what would happen if whites gave up and let blacks have everything their way? Rewrite all laws to exclude Blacks – turn over the cities, states, country over to them. What then? My guess is they would find something else to complain about AND America would look just like every country on the African continent.

  • LAHGB

    Over a year ago I was thinking about this very subject.  I started writing down names that are common, famous names to the average person.  This people all succeeded, they are also all African-Americans. They succeeded in a time when we are led to believe the black community is/was extremely oppressed. Don’t get me wrong, there were many problems, but this people carried on, and did not let conditions rule their life!  I know I have left out many, but here goes:  Nat King Cole, Natalie Cole, Dianha Carroll, Diana Ross, the Supremes, Marvin Gay,, Sammy Davis Jr. Ray Stevens, Lionel Richie, Bill Cosby, Whitney Huston, Charles Barkley, Dennis Rodman, Mike Tyson, Irvin, Aretha Franklin, Whoopi Goldberg, Michael Jordon, Oprah Winfrey (most popular talk how host in America numerous times), Tony Parker, Dwight Howard, James LeBron, Kobe Bryant, Reggie Jackson, many, many singing groups, too many to mention here.  All these people were (very) rich and famous. Millionaires.  Who made them famous, who loved them!  We all did.  I hate hearing how one race  has been soooo mistreated.  Many were unsuccessful, to be sure.  So were many whites.  Not all defeat can be declared to be the problem of the color of your skin.  Sometimes it is just the luck of the draw, being in the right place at the right time with the right people  .Attitude also has a lot to do with it.  The “victim” mentality is getting very old. I went to a Black Month History celebration in order to support my friends.  I was very disappointed to hear the preacher’s speech.  Instead of citing how far the Black Community had come, and how successful many had been and how the future was theirs for the taking, he discussed every wrong, or word he didn’t like his whole life.  Caucasians have many of the same problems, we all have our troubles and problems, but we naturally do not attribute it to our race.  It is called life!

    My ancestors were not even in America at the time of slavery.I have no guilt,and I wouldn’t feel guilty even if they had been here in that era.

  • volgeek

    I’m white and have no quilt. Not even though my ancestors were slave owners in North Carolina during the Civil War. I had nothing to do with it and it was legal at the time.

    • notpilgrims

      volgeek Something being legal doesn’t mean its right. There are a lot of things that are or were legal that aren’t moral–slavery is one.
      Lots of conservatives even think abortion is wrong. But abortion is legal!
      You shouldn’t have any guilt because you didn’t hold slaves.

  • http://nation.foxnews.com/ sallyjohanna

    Slavery is a condition.  Any race can experience it. It is as old as mankind. It should always be rejected. I do not feel guilty because I try to treat human beings like I want to be treated with respect.
    The American black population are wearing out the guilt trip after 140 years…enough is enough.  We are not stupid.  Except the Socialist Progressives that are using you and your vendetta.
    It is time to rejoin the human RACE and take responsibility for your actions.

  • LarrySheldon

    Time for me to generate some silence, broken only by the restful sounds of crickets……
    Looking back to the 1700’s plus or minus as the focus of the slavery issue, what is the race of the people that fastened the first irons on the slaves?
    What was the race of the people that marched the slaves in their chains to the African coast:
    What was the race of the captain and crew of the slave ships that picked up the slaves in their chains?  What were the conditions like on the ships?
    Where did majority of the ships make their first landfall after leaving Africa?  What was the dominant race there?

  • JohnCraven

    Slavery still exists in this very day in the Sudan and in much of the Muslim world and under Morsi it was made legal again.  It is often people, such as the Rev. Franklin Graham, through organizations such as his Samaritan’s Purse, which goes into these areas where slavery still exists and ransoms the freedom of the slaves, who are often Christians or from one of the native African religions.
    It was Article One, paragraph 9, of our US Constitution which authorized Congress to pass legislation which would go into effect on January 1, 1808, after having been signed into law by Thomas Jefferson, that would prohibit the slave trade and authorize the US Navy to sieze slave ships where ever they were found and condemn them and free the slaves.  This law was approved by Congress with votes from the South and the signature of a president from the South who was also a slave holder.
    Other Anti-slavery laws were passed by Congress as early as 1794 and it was under that law and one passed in 1800, From 1859 to 1860, the USS Mohawk captured 4 of the last slave ships, including the last one, the Mary J. Kimball,  to come to the United States.  The best known capture was that of the slave barque Wildfire which was reported on in Harper’s Weekly in 1860 – http://www.sonofthesouth.net/slavery/african-slave-ship.htm 
    John Craven – New Orleans

    • JohnCraven

      The Captain of the Mohawk reported the following account to the secretary of the navy and in turn, President Buchanan, of what he found aboard the Wildfire:
      “The Negroes are packed bellow in as dense a mass as possible for human being to be crowded; the space allotted them being in general about four feet high between decks, there, of course, can be but little ventilation given. These unfortunate creatures are obliged to tend to the calls of nature in this place – tubs being provided for the purpose – and her they pass their days, their nights, amidst the most horridly offensive odors of which the mind can conceive, and this under the scorching heat of the tropical sun, without room enough for sleep, with scarcely space to die in…”

      This report and Harper’s Weekly article helped galvanize the opposition to slavery and helped the GOP capture the White House.
      On August 5th and 6th, we will be commemorating two major events in our nation’s history which are intimately connected by Providence to the capture of the Wildfire in 1860 – they are the Battle of Mobile Bay, on August 5, 1864, and the Battle of Vella Gulf on August 6, 1943.

        The captain of the US Mohawk was made captain of the Union Ironclad Tecumseh which was selected by Admiral David Farragut to lead his fleet against Fort Morgan in Mobile Bay. http://civilwarwiki.net/wiki/USS_Tecumseh
        The captain of the USS Tecumseh was a young navy lieutenant whose grandfather had been one of George Washington’s war surgeons.  While commander of the USS Mohawk he siezed the forts in the Dry Tortugas with another US Navy ship and they never fell into Confederate hands.
        Before the war in 1857, he commanded the Vorina which journeyed to the Atrato River in the Isthmus of Darien to survey it for the future building of the Panama Canal.  In 1860 he was decorated by Queen Isabella II of Spain for rescuing Spanish sailors caught in a hurricane.  He participated in the capture of California from Mexico in 1846 aboard the USS Dale.  He helped worked on the Coastal Surveys of the US.  He had already had a storied career when he commanded the USS Tecumseh in the blockade of the James River before Admiral Farragut selected him to lead his fleet.

          On the morning of August 5, 1864, the USS Tecumseh began shelling Fort Morgan but its main objective was the Confederate Ram Tennesee but there was a torpedo (underwater mine) field between the Tecumseh and the Tennessee which allowed only a close passage by Fort Morgan.
          The pilot of the Tecumseh, John Collins, asked the captain what should they do since they couldn’t go any closer to Fort Morgan without being shelled and the captain told the pilot: “The Admiral can’t mean us to get any closer.  Damn the torpedos. I’m after that fellow” refering to the Tennessee.  And so the captain directed the Tecumseh through the mine field towards the Tennessee. Very soon afterwards there was a massive explosion and the Tecumseh began to sink rapidly.  The pilot later reported to Admiral Farragut that he and the captain had met at the bottom of the ladder leading out of the wheel house turret and the captain said to the pilot: “Go ahead! Go ahead!, After you, sir. The captain leaves his ship last.”
          The pilot made it out of the tower with the captain right behind him but just then the Tecumseh turned on its side and slammed the hatch shut and the captain went down with the ship.  Only 21 of the crew of 115 survived the sinking of the Tecumseh.  It lays there today in 38 ft of water in Mobile Bay.
          John Craven – New Orleans

        • JohnCraven

          When the rest of Admiral Farragut’s fleet saw what happened to the Tecumseh, there was panic and they all wanted to know what the Admiral wanted to do.
          Admiral Farragut uttered the phrase we have often heard since, echoing the words of the captain of the Tecumseh, “Damn the torpedoes! Full speed ahead!”
          Farrugut’s fleet went through the torpedo field unscathed and Mobile was captured.  It was discovered that only about 10% of the Confederate torpedoes were good.  The rest were waterlogged.  Either the Tecumseh had the great misforturne of being struck by one of the few torpedoes (underwater mines) that were any good or something else happened to sink the Tecumseh.
          Three confederate sailors were later captured on shore near Fort Morgan and they claimed they had been in a submersible which had put a mine on the Tecumseh and that the boiler of their submersible exploded at about the same time as the mine and caused the Tecumseh to sink with a minute with almost all of its crew, including its captain.  There is no way to know if this is so without disturbing the resting place of the Tecumseh which is considered hallowed ground.
          John Craven – New Orleans

        • JohnCraven

          The US Navy named three of its warships after the captain of the Tecumseh.
          The third warship was a Gridley class destroyer, which on the night of August 6, 1943, let a squadron of 8 destroyers into the Vella Gulf, where just a few days before, John F. Kennedy nearly lost his life aboard PT-109 when his PT boat and 14 others tried without success to stop the Tokyo Express from ferrying men and material to the frontlines of the far-flung Japanese Empire.   The mission of this squadron was to stop the Tokyo Express – 4 heavily armed Japanese Cruisers.  It was the first such offensive use of destroyers in US navy history and the squadron split into two groups – one to lead a frontal attack and the other to wait off to the side to see what would happen.
          John Craven – New Orleans

        • JohnCraven

          Around 11:30pm on the night the Tokyo Express was spotted on radar and the group of four destroyers led by the one named for the captain of the Tecumseh headed straight for the Tokyo Express.  When in range, the four attacking destroyers fired all of their torpedoes – 8 each.  
          Within an hour three of the Japanese Cruisers lay at the bottom of the Vella Gulf and the fourth turned tail and ran away leaving behind the survivors.  It was the most perfect torpedo strike in US navy history and the captain of the lead destroyer won the Navy cross for his leadership and an Aegis cruiser was later named for this battle.  http://www.destroyersonline.com/usndd/dd382/dd382attack.htm
          The sinking of the Tokyo Express with perhaps 1800 men made if possible for the Allies to more easily move throughout the various island groups in the Pacific and it came almost to the hour 79 years later of the sinking of the Tecumseh.

          On November 30, 1941, Admiral Halsey led Task Force 2 under Battle Order Number One out of Pearl Harbor with planes and marines for Wake Island. It was escorted by the thrid ship named for captain of the Tecumseh acting as a torpedo screen for the convoy.  Task Force 2 was due back at Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941, but was delayed by heavy seas and was 50 miles from Pearl Harbor when the Japanese struck, sinking the other flag ship of Task Force 2, the USS Arizona.
          On December 8, 1941, the USS Enterprise and its task force re-entered Pearl Harbor low on supplies and fuel and quickly restocked and went back out to sea. 
          The escape of the USS Enterprise made it possible for Roosevelt to make a bold decision – the Doolittle Raid on Japan on April 18, 1942, from the deck of the USS Hornet. http://www.uss-hornet.org/history/wwii/doolittle.shtml 
          My mother’s first cousin was on that mission.  He was the bombardier of flight crew #13, “lucky 13″, and they accomplished the only successful military strike of the mission, the sinking of a Japanese aircraft carrier, the Ryuchiu, in dry dock at the Yokusura Naval Base just to the south of Tokyo.  They bailed out in the dead of night in a blinding rain storm not knowing whether they would land in Chinese-held territory or Japanese-held territory.
          John Craven – New Orleans

        • JohnCraven

          When asked where the Doolittle Raiders had come from, Roosevelt cryptically replied “Shangri-La” which is what he called the presidential retreat now known as Camp David.
          My mother’s cousin went on to fly 40 more missions in the Pacific and his flight jacket can be seen at the D-Day Museum here in New Orleans.  For there part in helping the Doolittle Raiders escape, the Imperial Japanese forces slaughtered an estimated 250,000 Chinese, including the girls of one orphanage where some of the Raiders had been given shelter and who left the little girls with “trinkets” such as American cigarette lighters which the Japanese discovered.
          The success of the Doolittle Raid in showing that America could fight back very quickly even after the devastation of Pearl Harbor would likely never have happened the way it happened had not the Enterprise – the most decorated ship of WWII – been providentially delayed in returning to Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941, along with the rest of its task force, including a Gridley class destroyer named for the captain of the Tecumseh which also saw action at Guadalcanal and won 9 battle stars.

          Next year we will be commemorating the 150 anniversary of the Battle of Mobile Bay and with it the sinking of the USS Tecumseh.  You may wish to learn more at the following website about the slave trade and the role which the captain of the USS Tecumseh played when he was captain of the USS Mohawk in capturing the last slave ships – http://www.factasy.com/civil_war/book/export/html/7120
          You will find his story near the end of the online article.
          Slavery exists today in the Sudan and elsewhere in the Muslim world.  Slavery has been practiced by every race on earth for millenia. Yet, it was America which first proposed a way to end slavery in the US Constitution, Article 1, Paragraph 9,  and, as Rush so well pointed out, we are the only nation to fight a war to end slavery in our own country and fought subsequent wars, including WWII which brought an end to slavery elsewhere under the Japanese Empire and the Third Reich and a long Cold War which resulted in the collapse of the totalitarian Soviet Empire – the Evil Empire, aptly named by Ronald Reagan.

          Yet, in many ways we are headed for slavery here again but this time the slave owner will be our federal government under  Nero Obama.  Unless we realize that – unless we realize that we are in a war for liberty – we will repeat history and Providence may not be with us this time.

          JohnCraven THANK YOU FOR THIS WONDERFUL STORY.
          The truth is – the US is the least slavery and class prone nation that has ever existed.  
          We have a nation where poor people can become who their creator meant them to be.   
          We have no need to apologize for the US Constitution, Bill of Rights and we have corrected our mistakes and compensated for the sin of slavery.
          It’s time for a color-blind America.   Time to end human, porn and drug trafficking.   Time to end racism and racial supremacy of every kind.

        • JohnCraven

          Thanks for the kindness of your words.
          These issues aren’t the easiest to talk about but they need to be talked about truthfully because as you so correctly state, we have no reason to be ashamed of our founding including our founding documents which are amongst the most inspiring of documents ever written because they, I believe, were informed by the Word of God.
          Many brave Americans from all backgrounds have sacrificed everything for freedom here and elsewhere and we have nothing to be ashamed of.

          When my cousin flew off the deck of the Hornet on April 18, 1942, it was with the knowledge that he likely would not be coming back.  There was no returning.  And I wonder if he thought about not only his family, including his wife and little girl, but also, of his uncle, my grand uncle, Clarence Thomas Bourgeois, who served on the battleship, USS Mississippi, and was in gun turret No 2 on June 12, 1924, when something went terribly wrong and the turret exploded on San Pedro, California, killing him and 43 other men. All the Bourgeois’ on my mom’s side of the family came from Waveland.  In every era, in war or peace,  Americans have found the courage to fight for what is right and face our fears head held high.

      JohnCraven we are in America and it doesn’t’ exist here…the problem with the black community in America is they feel entitled to use the race card every time something doesn’t go their way… I am aware of the slavery that happens in Sudan and other parts of the world….and I am aware of their suffering…they have a reason to complain and I sympathize for them…. Black Americans though… they have a choice, they are free…they choose to be in VICTIM STANCE AND take no ACCOUNTABILITY for their choices…. blame the white man and it on the color of their skin.

      • tpaine76

        TerriaJeanWalters JohnCraven makes one wonder…are the genetically predisposed to be slaves? When they’re given freedom, it appears they reject it in place of victimhood. I would challenge them to name another country that offers the same freedoms and opportunities as the U.S. I’m should they would regurgitate the same libtard talking points they’ve been brainwashed into accepting.

    Time to live in the NOW and not in the past.  We will never have a constructive conversation on race in America until Blacks choose to give up their victimhood and take responsibility for their own self made problems.  They have had every opportunity to pull themselves up as a people over the last 50 yrs.  Few have taken advantage and even less have given up on their self destructive excuses for not succeeding at an even higher rate.  They seem bent on self destruction and they are tearing America down in the process.  WE need to stand up to them….call them out….and STOP taking care of them every time they make a threat to riot or boycott.  It works for us down South.

    Muslims are the traditional slave-traders and have been for centuries. 
    Slavery is STILL HAPPENING in Islam and is approved in the Koran and charters of Egypt and Hamas.  
    Human, porn and drug trafficking is mostly conducted by Islamists and Asians. 
    Several Saudis have been caught with slaves in the USA.
    Moreover, addiction to substances (alcohol, drugs, food) and behaviors (porn, gambling, sex, OCD) is a form of slavery. 
    There is help for the personal addiction kind of slavery and there are Laws to deal with the other kind.

    How would Africans have fared in the continent if they were not brought into Europe and the Americas admittedly under harsh and an unlawful institution? Where would Al Sharpton be, for example? He might have been living in a hut with a short lifespan hunting for his meals. My point is that perhaps an evil became a means to a good-the exposure of a race to what they enjoy now in terms of education, homes, a longer lifespan, protection from the elements, electronics, TVs, ect. I just throw that in as food for the mind.

    Anyone who says I owe them an apology can kiss my white ass. My Great Granfather was part of the 1st Minnesota at Gettysburg. Oh and it’s not my fault that Africans sold off family members into slavery, a lot like a lot of countries are doing to their daughters and sons now, EXCEPT, they’re being sold into Human Trafficking. Very sad, very very sad.
    So to my fellow AAs, read your fucking history.
    Oh and one more thing, Al and Jesse, just loooooooooooooove this type of shit, they want a race war. Couple of false prophets and puppets to satan.
