Shark Island is a small island located off the coast of Nambia. It’s
the site where over hundred years ago the Germans held a concentration camp which was also known as “Death Island”. Shark Island Concentration Camp is something like other African tragedies that is
omitted from history

Over 10,000 African people from the Herero and Namaqua tribe were killed between 1905 to 1907. At the time Nambia was under the German empire, On the island, Germans used some of the same
methods they used on Jews on the Herero and Namaqua. Methods such as
torture, forced larbor, and went as far cracking the skulls of the
Herero and Namaqua. WIth the dead bodies, the Germans ran “Medical Investigation” on the Herero and Namaqua to see which was the inferior
race. Other methods of torture were rape and forcing the women to do hard labor after and kept them starved for many days at time. Its not
Ironic to me events like this committed to African go omitted but Jewish Holocaust “Never Forget” slogan is used.

This is the final Installment of SanCopha League White History,
where the Whites Lies were exposed, and omitted events that Europeans
were finally revealed for you see and learn from.

This is what they omit in their textbooks and curriculum. Attempting to bury the truth.

Educate yourselves my people because they hate to see us with this knowledge.

Ferguson Police conveniently forgot to publicly release this part of the footage.

It shows Michael Brown paying for the pack of cigars he supposedly stole.

The officer who murdered Michael did not know he was a ‘suspect of a robbery’, so the tape of him ‘stealing’ the cigars have no relation to the killing.

But this footage is important because it proves that the police are trying to justify Mike’s murder by slandering his character.

Netflix has TV shows that no one watched or knew about and lasted one season.

But heaven forbid they have Martin, or Moesha, Fresh Prince, Hangin with Mr Cooper, etc they don’t even have Friends.

I know technically its probably not Netflix fault its more likely the people who own rights to these show but damn. 

The TV category of Netflix is fucking up. 

can we add living single to that list?


Let me know if you have questions!!!

"make up is false advertisement!"

My sis Rell (Twitter: Awkward_Duck, Tumblr: swearimnotangry), did some investigative work today and found that Donald Sterling has ties to private prison investments, which led the two of us to an excellent discussion about the private prison industry.

This is just the tip of the iceberg. With contract mandates specifying 90% occupancy rates, private prisons feed directly into our problem with mass incarceration.

The private prison industry has become a lucrative business with some of our financial institutions heavily investing in them (Not to mention the music industry invests in them also, but I wont go there today). 

Corrections Corporation of America (CCA) & GEO are the nations leading providers of correctional services. CCA has flourished as a business and has done so well ensuring that states maintain that 90% occupancy rate, that last year their Board of Directors authorized a $675 MILLION dividend to its shareholders. -_____-

I don’t even need to tell you who these prison beds are occupied by as I’m sure you all know the stats and demographics, but feel free to check out the links below.

Financial institutions that invest in private prisons:

CCA authorizes $675 million dividend to shareholders:

CCA being sued for widespread abuse in prisons:

there is also no real push to curb this by average majority white americans and non-black people because antiblackness pushes the desire for prisons, period. they want Black people in jail, they want us enslaved and they dont care if mostly rich whites are the ones making all the money and destroying the world doing it as long as Black people are enslaved, locked up and below the rest of them. it’s fucked up.
