#linkinbio#blackwomen Sign petition and most important just Share let’s make some noise we been silent long enough! Virginia Slave Breeding/State We Demand Reparations Now! Human Breeding For Profits we must seriously take action against this tyrannical act our mothers/grandmothers/daughters/Children/Men Ancestors went through! They must be held accountable!
Young women were often advertised for sale as “good breeding stock”. To encourage child-bearing some population owners promised women slaves their freedom after they had produced fifteen children. One slave trader from Virginia boasted that his successful breeding policies enabled him to sell 6,000 slave children a year. Here is how the American slave-breeding industry worked, according to the Sublettes: Some states (most importantly Virginia) produced slaves as their main domestic crop. The price of slaves was anchored by industry in other states that consumed slaves in the production of rice and sugar, and constant territorial expansion. As long as the slave power continued to grow, breeders could literally bank on future demand and increasing prices. By a conservative estimate, in 1860 the total value of American slaves was $4 billion, far more than the gold and silver then circulating nationally ($228.3 million, “most of it in the North,” the authors add), total currency ($435.4 million), and even the value of the South’s total farmland ($1.92 billion). Slaves were, to slavers, worth more than everything else they could imagine combined. it furnishes every inducement to the master to attend to the Negroes, to encourage breeding, and to cause the greatest number possible to be raised… Virginia is, in fact, a Negro-raising state for the other states.” #makeamericapayreparations#NewAfrikan#makeamericapayreparations#ConversationReparations#REPARATIONSNOW#WECHARGEGENOCIDE#fuckdonaldtrump#natchez#NewYork#NewJersey#Chicago#Detroit#NewOrleans#Virginia#RVA#fuckcapitalism#Africa#thisisamerica#slavebreeding#breedingfarms#petition#humantrafficking#breedinghumans#slavebreedingstate#commonwealthofvirginia

my early childhood yelp reviews of summer camp are a bit mixed, but for some reason i kept going back out into the wilderness well into adulthood. as i figure out how to get better at carving out vacation time for myself, i find that all my potential trips include being in places with sunshine, people i love and people who love me back.
my newest IGTV episode features what has been my most consistent vacation activity; spending a week in the woods as a camp counselor at Camp Pumziko. I was about 12 when I started as a camper, now I'm an old and washed camp counselor who the kids call "Uncle Aj" 👴🏿 Nah, the kids found out I wasn't washed when it was time to race! 🏃🏿♂️💨 It's always an enriching and refreshing experience, so be sure to check out this episode and learn a bit more about a camp dedicated to teaching our children how to live more self determined lives. Be sure to share with a friend as well!.
