By Charmaine Simpson, December 2012

The presence of Africans in England dates back to at least the Roman period when African soldiers who served as part of the Roman army were stationed at Hadrian’s Wall during the 2nd century CE. Septimus Severus, the emperor who was born in Libya, spent his last three years in Britain before he died in York in 211 CE.

I will present 15 facts aimed at raising the level of knowledge, and uncovering the hidden histories, of people of African and Caribbean descent who have contributed to London before 1948.

1. The earliest known [public] record of a Black person living in London is of “Cornelius a Blackamoor” whose burial on 2nd March 1593 was recorded in the parish register at St Margaret’s Church in Lee. Continue reading

Top 5 Eric Garner Conspiracy Stories

Eric Garner, Daniel Pantaleo, New World Order, conspiracy, NWO, conspiracy theories, police stateEric Garner Death: The Top 5 Conspiracy Theories
By Sam Prince (December 8, 2014)

While the media reports that the death of Eric Garner and the dismissal of charges against Officer Daniel Pantaleo are indicative that America is not in fact in a “post-racial” era, underground online forums claim that Garner’s death and the use of extreme police force are indicative of something more sinister: a police state.

From Ferguson to Staten Island to other police shootings all over the United States and the subsequent government forces called in to quell irate crowds of protesters, the results show one thing: the US government knows how to handle civil disobedience. Continue reading

#AliveWhileBlack Response To #CrimingWhileWhite Reveals The Everyday Struggles Of Being Black

Black America Web

Last night, in the midst of protests in reaction to the non-indictment of Daniel Pantaleo, the Staten Island cop responsible for choking and killing Eric Garner, Twitter erupted in one of the most powerful hashtags we’ve ever witnessed: #CrimingWhileWhite. This hashtag allowed White people to share their experience with police officers that often ended with a pat on the bum and no shooting, choking or calls for justice. And now Twitter has responded to that hashtag with #AliveWhileBlack. This social media movement is an outpouring of Black people sharing their experiences of living everyday life as a Black person and the disparities that come along with it.

Black Character Assassination

bulls-eye-black-man.jpg Black Character Assassination
By Black Sentinel (2007)

Constantly I feel that we are being bombarded with images that are designed to connect Blacks with the ills of society. Each and every night on local and national news you see the same types of images being flashed across the screen. Black faces shown for topics such as welfare reform, crime statistics, unemployment, ill education and you name it a stock photo of a Black is associated with it. So basically what you have is Pavlov’s experiment using people. If you have not taken psychology 101 then Pavlov’s experiment was to ring a bell each time a dog was given food and soon enough the dog would start to salivate just from hearing the bell. The dog learned to associate eating with the bell. Just like Pavlov’s dog, people begin to associate Black people with crime, welfare, laziness and stupidity. So now just by hearing the term welfare recipients…I am sure your mind pictured a bunch of young, single Black females. Continue reading

White Mind Dominating Black News

Fake smile Odd StuffWhen Black News Disappears: White Holds on Black Intellectuals’ Minds and Misinforming the Black Public
Friday, 24 May 2013 09:49By Dr Tommy J Curry, Racism Review | Op-Ed

As an historical entity, the Black press has not only offered critical commentaries and political critiques of the sempiternal racism of the modern world, but correctives as to how white newspapers, opinion-makers, legislators, and most importantly the white public sought to justify their complacency towards and support for anti-Black racism and the sexual brutalization of Black men, women, and children. Today, however, the post-Obama lullabies of racial détente and the progressive liberal passivity of Black intellectuals have allowed the structural Continue reading

By Angriest Black Man In America, Black In America Series, Jan. 24 2014

The Story

So…suffice it to say I have a new hero: Richard Sherman. I am actually not a football fan. Honestly, I dislike the sport for its aggressive barbaric nature and some other ideological crap most people don’t care about. However, I don’t think anyone could have missed the media storm that was caused by Richard Sherman’s post-game interview on the field after his team’s win against the 49ers.
