WHO WAS JIM CROW ?

No Dogs, Negros, Mexicans---

By Melvia Miller

Jim Crow was the name of the racial caste system which operated primarily, but not exclusively in
southern and border states, between 1877 and the mid-1960s.

Jim Crow was more than a series of rigid anti-Black laws. It was a way of life. Under Jim Crow, African
Americans were relegated to the status of second class citizens. Jim Crow represented the legitimization of
anti-Black racism.

Many Christian ministers and theologians taught that Whites were the Chosen people, Blacks were cursed to
be servants, and God supported racial segregation. Craniologists, eugenicists, phrenologists, and Social
Darwinists, at every educational level, buttressed the belief that Blacks were innately intellectually and
culturally inferior to Whites.

This system was not much different from the APARTHEID system of South Africa.

I have heard these types of degrading things before from White folks--as I have my own Black History
program and an on-line Museum. Some have signed my guest book with types of "go back to Africa" comments.
It was the WHITE FOLKS that kidnapped Black Africans and brought us over here!!!

The insanity of these types of racist comments need to be addressed, attacked and put to rest.

History has much to teach us---and the biggest lesson is that WHITE FOLKS perpetrated the GREATEST CRIME IN
HISTORY...and now in the 21st Century are trying to pretend that they are so "innocent" in their part in
creating all the social problems that we now experience.

BULL-CRAP. You cannot pretend to have "amnesia"---

THE MAJOR CRIMES OF THE WORLD HAVE BEEN COMMITTED BY CAUCASIAN PEOPLE...---and you wonder why these "terrorists" are out to get you????

..... now chickens are coming home to roost.
