Welcome to another euphemism-o-rama to describe white people being shitty. If some bleached bastard so much as imagined a Black man raped a low-melanin woman, his life would be at risk. And not just from lynching. In the not-too-old days, Black men could be sentenced to death by the state for sexually assaulting sunscreen slatherers. […]
8 women were convicted, executed and burned at the stake, sometime during the 1600’s. Sentenced not only to death but to exclusion from society, deprived of the blessing and denied a burial in consecrated ground. What was left after the fire did its thing was trampled into the bog and covered with stones so that they could not “walk again”.

His assailants—the white woman’s husband and her brother—made Emmett carry a 75-pound cotton-gin fan to the bank of the Tallahatchie River and ordered him to take off […]

Rushed to Charity Hospital, he would soon die the loneliest of deaths — in an isolation ward, far from home, surrounded by solemn doctors consulting furtively. An autopsy confirmed their suspicions: […]
In a more detailed look at the Ritual Black Metal scene, I will focus on several Swedish bands that have an expressed and/or known connection to esoteric groups, specifically Dragon Rouge and the Misanthropic Lucifer Order (MLO). At the bottom of this page, you can download more about them. Dragon Rouge is a self-described dark […]
Apart from being a blues musician, Thomas was a gravedigger and folk artist known for his sculptures featuring actual human teeth.
Born 14 October 1926 in Eden, Mississippi, died 26 June 1993 in Greenville, Mississippi. Thomas was raised by his grandparents, who gave him his nickname “Son” as a term of endearment.

Rude boy, rudeboy, rudie, rudi, and rudy are slang terms that originated in 1960s Jamaican street culture, and that are still used today. In the late 1970s, there was a revival in England of the terms rude boy and rude girl, among other variations, being used to describe fans of two-tone ska. The use of these terms moved into the more contemporary ska punk movement as well. […]
The phantom time hypothesis is a historical conspiracy theory asserted by Heribert Illig. First published in 1991, it hypothesizes a conspiracy by the Holy Roman Emperor Otto III, Pope Sylvester II, and possibly the Byzantine Emperor Constantine VII, to fabricate the Anno Domini dating system retrospectively, in order to place them at the special year of AD 1000, and to rewrite history. According to this scenario, the entire Carolingian period, including the figure of Charlemagne, is a fabrication, with a “phantom time” of 297 years (AD 614–911) added to the Early Middle Ages.
