When People say, ‘Slavery Was A Long Time Ago…Get Over It’

When People say, ‘Slavery Was A Long Time Ago…Get Over It’



There is a misconception that slavery is over because black people aren’t physically walking around in chains and shackles. However, what many fail to realize is that slavery ran much deeper than physical imprisonment.

Although “formal” slavery was eradicated in the mid-1800’s, the privileged mentality of entitlement structured by white society impacted socioeconomics of black and brown people and created inequality, which has an affect to the date.




For example, there exists an economic injustice to minorities–mostly because of “400 Years of Head Start and Advantage” for whites–resulting in a vast disproportion in home ownership, household income, unemployment, and education, but [most importantly] inheritance. This imbalance of benefits are a result of institutional racism–wealth/benefits from racial groups that have benefited from past discrimination, educational and occupational disadvantage.

What is disturbing about these truths is that despite the fact history elucidates how the slave era strategically influenced a plethora of socioeconomic adversities even in the twenty-first century, people still say, “Slavery was a long time ago … get over it.”




Below is a timeline of civil injustices towards black people, starting from the slave era, that clearly explains why they simply can’t “get over it.”

RACISM TIMELINE1

To summarize this timeline, black people have only been voting for 50 years, granted “equality”–civil rights–for 47 years, treated like humans instead of guinea pigs for 43 years, stopped being lynched in trees and not receiving justice for 28 years, and yet are still being gunned down by police officers today.

Malcolm X explains best why black people simply can’t and won’t get over it.

“If you stick a knife in my back nine inches and pull it out six inches, that’s not progress. If you pull it all the way out, that’s not progress. The progress comes from healing the wound that the blow made. They haven’t even begun to pull the knife out. They won’t even admit the knife is there.”

If society allows black people to heal without having to constantly overcome injustices generation after generation, just maybe the wounds would no longer be visible.

Slaughterhouse of Justice

Slaughterhouse of Justice Image

Robin Nicollette, has written her latest criminal masterpiece that tells the story of sexy serial killers Alexis Webb and her lesbian lover, Natalie Miller.

Alexis, a social worker overseeing cases of abused children, and Natalie, a call girl, are on a mission in the small town of Heber Springs, Arkansas–serving “justice” for girls and boys that the system failed to—by killing their pedophile prey, one by one in their infamous slaughterhouse.

What makes the duo’s endeavors so chilling is that once they feel that justice has been served, they collect a very special souvenir from each case—displaying them as badges of work well done.

Things are going very well until a deranged client interferes with their efforts, threatening to expose the principles which they deeply believe in.

Will the world recognize and endorse their lethal form of justice or will the duo be misunderstood and condemned to the same sacrifice that they rendered to their “prey?”

Robin Nicollette is at it again writing her latest novel, and giving a voice to the characters of Teresa Wagner, Dhia Tengku, and Becca Lee. This complex and assorted trio of women had been living totally divergent lives, each managing to overcome their individual obstacles of single motherhood, loneliness and poverty, and polygamy, respectively.

After successfully rebuilding their lives, they each unknowingly found love with Curtis—the handsome, successful, wealthy man of their dreams, who showered them with exotic vacations, and all the romance a woman could want. However, being the deceitful cheat that he was, Curtis gave the women indecent proposals through vows made in secret to spend the rest of his life with each of them.

Life with Curtis was great, until he revealed his abusive and controlling ways. Deceit and betrayal lead the women to learn of one another, giving them reason to join forces, seek revenge, and conspire to rid the world of Curtis once and for all. Afterwards, they’d planned to inherit and split all of his wealth between them, and then bask in satisfaction, having had gotten away with his murder.

Will the women get away with their murderous plan or will their greed and conspiracy lead them into a hell that they never saw coming?

How to Avoid High Child Support Payments and Not Be A Deadbeat Dad

How to Avoid High Child Support Payments and Not Be A Deadbeat Dad Image

Child support, while good in concept and theory, is a flawed system filled with a wealth of biases and unfair child support laws that many times aren’t reasonable for the non-custodial parent to honor. Child support enforcement has gotten more strenuous over the years, and doesn’t put forth much consideration of the obligations that non-custodial parents may have to support themselves.

While there are many parents who choose not to financially support their children, there are many who do. Nevertheless, the child support courts and the Office of Child Support Enforcement (CSE), have geared unfair child support laws to battle against deadbeat parents. Consequently, all non-custodial parents, even those who are actively involved in their children’s lives—are faced with a downward spiral of actions taken against them, making it almost impossible to recover from. Some of these atrocities include:

• Warrant(s) issued for arrest and imprisonment
• License(s) suspended and or passport revoked
• Income taxes offset
• Garnished paychecks
• Difficulty finding employment

Therefore this “child support for dummies” guide is intended to give parents with unfair and unreasonable child support payments information to determine fair monetary payments and how to set up a system that will force the state to honor those agreements. The goal is to not only protect the interests of children, but to also prevent destruction of the non-custodial parent’s assets, capital, and livelihood.

  1. You continue to do it to yourselves. Recent events in Baltimore has only proven to the public eye what petty thugs you folks really are.

    Don’t want to get hurt/killed by police? Obey their commands.

    Don’t want minimum wage? Don’t have minimum skills.

    Don’t want to suffer? Stop crying wolf.

    Racism sucks. But being falsely accused of racism, sucks as well.

    Time to get over yourselves.

    • What are smoking? you can’t tell white people nothing because they are always right, right about everything. Black people major problem is worring about what what white people think. Another major problem is relearning our roots our history, and not the lying crap history shoved down our ancestors throats by law. Once we wake up from our sleep as a nation and start doing for self, then the prisons can stop growing and profiting stopping that money flow which will also bringing black families together, take our culture back, stop wasting all our hard earn money with white people buying their useless junk. We will grow, stop allowing ourselves to exploited by whites put away our tribal difference. Throwaway your white washed religious that enslaved our minds a nothing faction put there by law, leave behind your lyin education system a nothing thing forced on blacks by law. Support black businesses. If black people just walked away and took everything ours with us. I bet money white america would have a problem with that

      • lol youll bet white money
        sigh

        I think we should all separate. no need to be noble and “religious” if they are just gonna reject it and use the religion against the religious. maybe not this life but next one around for sure… it will never happen again. not slavery either. just none of it. I truly hope some black people do not have any underlying fears or concerns about what their lives would be like if there never was any slavery/never brought here…because we all sorta think that’s where their violence stems from.
