Actually I was posting re: slavery in America, but you are correct.  In many mills in the South, the adults were not much better off.  Then the coal miners, etc.

In 1921, a white mob burned 'Black Wall Street' down. We still feel that legacy today

On Saturday, Trump is holding a rally near the site where vigilantes killed hundreds of people to suppress black wealth

"On 9 March 1892, a white mob in Memphis, Tennessee, lynched Thomas Moss and his business partners Will Stewart and Calvin McDowell. The black men died on the altar of capitalism as viewed through a white supremacist lens.

Their food store, People’s Grocery, had successfully competed with a nearby white-owned store. In lynching them, white vigilantes were exacting lethal retribution for the crime of being black men with more business acumen than a white competitor.

The lynch posse sent an unmistakable message to the black citizens of Memphis: black entrepreneurship has limits – and white people determine the height of the economic ceiling. ...........

In 1919, for example, a mass wave of racial violence tore through American cities. Although sometimes described as “race riots”, implying mutual culpability, these were mostly invasions of black spaces by white vigilantes hell-bent on black oppression. These vigilantes were often motivated by economic issues, particularly their fear that competition from black workers would reduce white employment and wages. They killed hundreds of black Americans. The grisly event came to be known as the “Red Summer.”

Historians have dubbed this blood-soaked era the “nadir” of race relations in America..........

The bravery of Bubba Wallace standing up and speaking out in the violent, confederate confines of NASCAR is above and beyond. For the rest of us, it’s not just “solidarity with Bubba Wallace.” It’s “pledge to physically defend Bubba Wallace.”

This sort of thing is to be expected within a certain population of people.

A number of people with white supremacist views have proven over the years to be not just capable of threats, but also capable of violence.

A number of my southern relatives worked in mills during the first half of the 20th century.

And while it was hard work, I doubt they thought of themselves as slaves.

NEW: Louisville Det. Brett Hankison, one of the Kentucky police officers involved in the killing of Breonna Taylor earlier this year, has been fired, authorities say.

Okay, it's taken the police chief 3 months to fire this jerk.

Now how much longer is it going to take the DA in this County to bring murder charges up on him.

This kind of crap is why people are Marching for Justice. And they're going to keep on demanding Justice until there are some profound and definite changes made in this country.

Our justice system do not employ kangaroo courts. 

Angry people can not dictate how a person is investigated, charged and the trail process itself.

Many wants vengeance not justice. Don't believe me see how they react if one is acquitted. :angry:

Right now I'm in the middle of a double feature of:

"Mississippi Burning" and

"Ghosts of Mississippi"--

I'm going to check up on these kangaroo courts by watching these movies.

Then to make sure I really understand about these kangaroo courts in the United States of America,

I'm going to check out this double feature tomorrow night:

 " The Lynching of Emmett Till "

" The Central Park 5 "--

Ham, you might want to look into this one because trump plays a key role in it.

JACKSON, Miss. (AP) -- Walmart says it will stop displaying Mississippi state flag because of Confederate emblem.

 it's funny how fast the thousands of people protesting racism in the streets for a couple of weeks has convinced Corporate America that racism is a problem in this country.

Considering the kind of Progressive, brilliant and highly educated corporate leadership we have in this country,

I'm surprised they hadn't noticed it before.

But I guess they were just too busy making money.  LMREO

Things are not going to get better until we have real police reform. And it is the law of the land. Trump with his daily racism and law & order tweets is just throwing kerosene on the fire.
 
10:59 AM · Jun 25, 2020·Twitter for iPhone

 Only the Democratic party would be committed to National Police Reform.

Whatever bills the Republican party has put out in Congress just don't go far enough--

Because they're intended not to go far enough.

The time for window dressing is over, the American people are demanding real reform and real change.

If those police officers cited in the above article want to slaughter black American citizens, then they don't need any emblem at all.

The old Ku Klux Klan white hood is what they should be wearing, instead of a police uniform.

.@KLoeffler wants an amendment to the 2nd Amendment: Guns for white people only.
 
11:47 AM · Jun 26, 2020·Twitter for iPad

Loeffler wants black people to be second-class citizens--

the 2nd Amendment cannot apply to them --

which is about like 50% of citizenship.

Well, black people started out in the United States as being 3/5 of a person-- 60% of citizenship.

Well, it looks like the conservative Republicans of the GOP are trying to send black people back -back- back further than even the 18th century.

The Republican party certainly is focused on its goals for the benefit of its target audience.

NEW: Reddit is banning the controversial subreddit r/The_Donald, one of its largest political communities and a longstanding hub of support for Trump, along with 2000 other subreddits and users that violate new content policies aimed at hate speech.

Two social media forums saw fit to ban trump and his supporters due to the racist and hateful content of their comments and videos.

It's rather sad that the president and so many of his supporters have behavior that can only be classified as Un- American.
