This Week in White Supremacy: Week 84 – “Dear America: You are waking up, as Germany once did, to the awareness that 1/3 of your people would kill another 1/3 while 1/3 watches.”- Werner Herzog

Also: ‘Black People’s Land Was Stolen — Any discussion of reparations must include how this happened, who did it, and the laws, policies and practices that allowed it.’

“Any discussion of reparations must include how this happened, who did it, and the laws, policies and practices that allowed it,” writes Dr. Andrew W. Kahrl, an associate professor of history and African American studies at the University of Virginia. “… in addition to invoking the 40 acres black people never got, the reparations movement today should be talking about the approximately 11 million acres black people had but lost, in many cases through fraud, deception and outright theft, much of it taken in the past 50 years. http://bit.ly/2Nj8iVD
