African Land Grab: Acres for a Bottle of Scotch By Bruce Krasting Jun 11, 2011, 9:19 AM Author's Website Everyone who eats is aware that agricultural prices have been on a tear the past few years. With this has come a sharp increase in the value of arable land. Deep topsoil farmland in Iowa has changed hands as high as $11,000 an acre recently. That’s up from about $6,000 just a few years ago. The shortage of arable land has gone global. Africa has seen an explosion of activity since 2008.

It is soooooooo clear he has no clue. Now when he coming up? He wasn't studying black history or ancient Egyptology. So how in the hell does he know why the pyramids were built. I have my own theory and it has nothing absolutely nothing to do with a focking store. If he knew his stuff, he would know that during that time Egypt was the richest country in the world. They were so rich that gold dust was used on the streets like sand dust is used today in saloons. But I'm not gonna revisit all...

When they go after them to burn in the ovens, they won't have to stay too long to turn blacker than they already are. They'll just be crispy, toasty TRUMPF niggeroos. No matter how hateful a white man is toward a black man, there will ALWAYS be a BLACK man who will LOVE him. They're called JIGGABOOS.

If you can get your hands on it, I highly recommend the movie "Quilmbo" which is the story of Palmares. I've watched several times with my children. Highly recommend. I also recommend "Besouro", U.S. title "The Assailant" (dumb title IMO) it is on Netflix streaming right now. Again my children watched. They love it. Black Brazilian films are the best in the Americas.

Memories of grade school. The nuns at my school had this record about George Washington Carver and they would occasionally bring a portable phonograph to class and play it for us. It got to the point where I would think, "Oh no! They are going to play that thing about George Washington Carver AGAIN !" Make a big deal about the person but never actually teach any science. Where did he learn science himself, before he started doing it that is? Xum

I have news for yall. A lot of vital books, art and reliefs were DESTROYED by Arab slavers to prevent black slaves from KNOWING their true history of excellence. That's why it was convincing to say that blacks were savages cuz proof of their achievements were destroyed by these MONSTERS more than a thousand years ago. When massa came along, he destroyed even more proof. So this is why I don't understand ANY black person in their RIGHT mind would follow the religion of either of these groups.

White men are always destroying the Black men's genitalia. I'm not speaking from experience in any way, believe that. I think it's because whenever I see them standing in their shorts and drawers on my TV, which they do quite often, they're pissed because they almost always look like girls. I'm like: "Where's their sh!t?" These fluckers have a serious case of Penis Envy.
