These flukkas are the female lions of humanity. They come at you with teeth bared and claws pointed at your behind, 10 at a time. We're the gazelles, we can run like hell, we can't out run bullets and we're crazy, but nowhere as crazy as these former dwellers of the caves. That bat shit got to all of them. We made them a heap of money, they kept it, here we are, where we don't belong, most of us poorer than church mice, depending on the female lions for our lives. We're beyond living under...

They should have reached back to the CAVES. Something from there could have picked the cotton. They're good at training dogs. Should...

It also happens because Black teachers will sit and say or do nothing when they know they are witnessing the blatant discrimination and racism against Black children in the schools they are teaching in. People will almost always only do what you allow them to either do to you or...

Historical marker alongside Alabama highway will honor civil rights martyr William Lewis Moore February 05, 2019 Jerry Smith was humming along U.S. Highway 11 in his light-green, 1961 Chevrolet Corvair, when he came upon something unusual. A man was walking alongside the two-lane highway, pulling a cart, and holding a sign. “I stopped long enough to see that it was something about blacks one way or the other,” said Smith, now 72, of Southside, Alabama, recalling the 1963 incident. “After I...
