Have You Heard The Story of LaVena Johnson?
LaVena Johnson was a soldier who enlisted in the Army in 2003. She was the first woman from Missouri to die in Iraq. What happened to this young black woman was appalling. She was found in her tent with a gunshot wound to the head, a broken nose, black eye, loose teeth, acid burns on her genitals, and a trail of blood leading away from her tent. What’s even more appalling is the Department of Defense has officially ruled her death a suicide.
After almost two weeks of delay, and an apparent cover-up in the details surrounding the shooting death of Renisha McBride, 19, news just broke that Theodore Paul Wafer, 54, has finally been charged with second-degree murder, manslaughter and a felony firearm charge. Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy just announced the decision to charge Wafer at a press conference this morning.
After his initial 911 call, in which he hung up, Wafer admitted to police that he shot and killed McBride. Why? He said that she was “bleeding and disoriented” after a car crash… which for some reason led him to conclude he had the reason and right to shoot her dead on his front porch.
South Africans have erupted in song, dance and tears in public and emotional celebrations of the life of Nelson Mandela, the anti-apartheid leader who bridged the country’s black-white divide and helped avert a race war.
Bullshit and fuck you, race war was not averted, white people waged all-out race war against Black people in Africa for centuries using every manner of weaponry and technology and violence and cruelty at their disposal, from the first Boers and Brits of the Dutch East India Company to Dr. Livingstone and Henry Stanley, from King Leopold to the white supremacist National Party of apartheid fame who admitted that they were working in laboratories on biological weapons which would only kill Black people.
It’s a race war, waged by white people, every day that the world is shaped the way it is under white supremacism. White people only call it a “race war” if Black people fight back to defend themselves. Therefore, in the distorted white lens, the greatest thing Mandela did is persuade Black people not to fight back too hard, that’s what white people are celebrating about him, practically sighing with relief, whew they didn’t form death squads and kill us all. They completely twist the point of his life and legacy.
Truth and Reconciliation doesn’t mean, now we’re okay with whiteness after all. It means, Black people and people of color are on the move, handling what’s happened and what’s happening, but moving on and leaving whiteness in the rear view mirror because there are bigger mountains to climb.

Alligator bait, also known as gator bait, is the practice of using little black children as bait to catch alligators. Some say it was done by white men during slave times in Florida and Louisiana and other parts of the American South.
Here is the most complete account of how it was done, coming from the grandson of someone who says he used to do it:
… the slaves who had babies they would steal the babies during the course of the day, some times when their mothers weren’t watching . … some would be infants, some would be a year old, he said some would be toddlers, he said they would grab these children and take them down to the swamp, and leave them in pens like little chicken coops.
They would go down there at night, take these babies and …. tie them up, put a rope around their neck and around their torso, around here, and tie it tight.
… they’d be screaming. … what they were doing would help them to chum the water. He said when they would throw the babies in tied to this rope, he said in a matter of minutes, he said, the alligator were on them. He said the alligator would clamp his jaws on that child, as a matter of fact once he clamped on them he was really swallowed, he said you couldn’t see anything but the rope!
THIS SYSTEM IS OUT TO KILL US AND WE KNOW IT. SOME SAY we are not ready to take on this monster. We say that we do not want to….but that is not the question any longer. The monster has taken us on and we have to deal with reality.
Forgotten Rebellion: Black Seminoles and the Largest Slave Revolt in U.S. History
The story of John Horse and the Black Seminoles has been largely untold, but they deserve to be remembered for a number of reasons:
- They created the largest haven in the U.S. South for runaway slaves.
- They led the largest slave revolt in U.S. history.
- They secured the only emancipation of rebellious slaves prior to the U.S. Civil War.
- The formed the largest mass exodus of slaves across the United States and, ultimately, to Mexico.
Carlota Lukumí was kidnapped from her Yoruba Tribe in Nigeria and forced into slavery in Cuba by the Spanish the early 1800s. She was a slave in the City of Matanzas where she harvested and processed sugar cane under some of the most brutal conditions that killed countless stolen Africans on a daily.Carlota had a warrior spirit and was always intelligent, so along with a friend and fellow stolen African female named Fermina she led an organized rebellion at the Triumvarato sugar plantation where they were both forced to work. Fermina was locked up after her plans for the rebellion were discovered by the Spanish Landowners. While imprisoned she used talking drums to secretly communicate with Carlota who along with other slaves that she formed into a small army of warriors freed Fermina and others.They went on to execute an organized armed uprising against at least five slave plantations in the area. Carlota’s brave battle went on for one year before she was captured, tortured and executed by the Spanish landowners, but not before destroying plantations, Killing slave owners, and freeing countless Stolen Africans.

Greg Reese at Antelope Valley News has written about the early radiation experiments conducted in 1927 on black children at Lyles Station, Indiana. These hideous experiments are part of a largely unexamined legacy of illegal human experimentation, much of it conducted on African-Americans, and other minorities, and also on prisoners.
A 2009 documentary tells the story of one of these children, now deceased, Vertus Hardiman. These experiments took off Hardiman’s scalp… literally. But Hardiman wasn’t the only victim, nor the Lyles Station experiments the last. As Reese tells it:
One cannot help but be repulsed by the cruelty of such procedures, especially their application to young children, but this was not an isolated case. Similar research occurred in 1951 on a much larger scale has been uncovered in the then-fledgling state of Israel. Like the Lyles Station incident, where all the affected children were Black, racial overtones abounded since fair-skinned Ashkenazi Jews of European origin administered radiation to upwards of 100,000 Sephardic Jewish children who were refugees from Morocco.
