IMMORTAL TECHNIQUE . RAS KASS NATURE OF THE THREAT ( it will give people a history lesson)
For my music class I’m suppose to find a rapper that doesn’t rap about sex,drugs,money or being cocky and I am so up for that challenge and plus it has to be a recent song not from the 90’s
for a song, maybe look what you’ve done by drake. the only drugs…
If this is true….damn…..
William Lynch stated in his letter in 1712…, (whom was a BRITISH slave owner. Yes the British were a part of this too.)
Anyways he goes on to say…
"You must use the DARK skin slaves vs. the LIGHT skin slaves, and the LIGHT skin slaves vs. the DARK skin slaves. You must use the FEMALE vs. the MALE, and the MALE vs. the FEMALE. You must also have white servants and overseers [who] distrust all Blacks."
So yes, it’s true. SMDH.
And the effects still ripple through our community today. This is one of the many reasons we can’t just “get over it” in regards to slavery. Destruction of the black community, stolen wealth, sexism, and much more stem from slavery. I truly believe we did not have these issues in pre-slavery African societies.
Don’t let them trip you up. We need solidarity all around.
Scientists Reveal Face of the First European
The face of the first European has been recreated from bone fragments by scientists.The head was rebuilt in clay based on an incomplete skull and jawbone discovered in a cave in the south west of the Carpathian Mountains in Romania by potholers.
Using radiocarbon analysis scientists say the man or woman, it is still not possible to determine the sex, lived between 34,000 and 36,000 years ago.
Europe was then occupied by both Neanderthal man, who had been in the region for thousands of years, and anatomically-modern humans – Homo sapiens.
Modern humans first arrived in Europe from Africa.
The skull appears very like humans today, but it also displays more archaic traits, such as very large molar teeth, which led some scientists to speculate the skull may belong to a hybrid between Homo sapiens and Neanderthals – an idea discounted by other experts.
Erik Trinkaus, professor of anthropology at Washington University in Missouri, said the jaw was the oldest, directly-dated modern human fossil. “Taken together, the material is the first that securely documents what modern humans looked like when they spread into Europe,” he said.
The model was created by Richard Neave, a forensic artist, for a BBC programme about the origins of the human race and evolution.

You can watch the clip from the show this model was made for here. It’s oddly defensive and uncomfortable to watch, and they keep talking about how the face “doesn’t look African”.
"Their way of life is the closest I could find to that of our ancestors!"
After watching her follow around some folks she refers to as “The Bushmen”, and taking their body temperatures while they’re hunting, the whole thing just became pretty gross and I turned it off.
