Heathens aplenty right here

by baldilocks

I’m having one of those moments again. So I’ll do what I always do: point you to something interesting.

Man tries to save the souls of carcass-worshipers.

In a recent Facebook post, musician and investigative writer Daryl Davis described how he’s been treated by others and members of his own race [he’s black], from being called a “sellout” to every imaginable racial slur. Until this week….

Davis was part of a panel in Philadelphia aimed at reducing hatred and violence in the country. This included both right and left wing people who he states were successfully getting along. However, he says that Antifa members upset about the conference refused to join the party, accusing him of being a “white supremacist!”

Davis has been the subject of the documentary Accidental Courtesy: Daryl Davis, Race & America and a Ted Talk about his adventures. He’s traveled to over 50 countries and played music in 49 states as a professional blues musician.

For decades, he’s interacted with and interviewed people with opposing viewpoints. He has even convinced a couple hundred KKK members to disjoin. He’s interviewed members of all different hate and extremist groups, both black and white. His most famous story was about his relationship with Klan leaders and was the subject of his book, Klan-destine Relationships.

Read the whole thing and watch the videos.

And know this: there’s an element in these United States that has a vested interest in keep Americans of different races at each other’s throats. Those who hate this man for reaching out to his perceived enemies feed on anger, hatred and fear. They are addicted to it; if they could shoot it into their veins, they would.

Mr. Davis is a hero.

I’ll wager the answer to that question is in the millions, but of course to get an exact answer is tough because

  1.  So many Indians died due to disease at the arrival of Europeans due to lack of immunity to the various pathogens they carried.
  2. Large slave-owning cultures like the Aztecs were destroyed pretty quickly by the Spaniards.
  3. The lack of written records that have been preserved

The left hates this question because it’s a reminder that slavery was not invented with the arrival of white Europeans in America.  In fact I’ll wager that the average schoolkid didn’t and doesn’t realize that the only reason why slavery isn’t still common is due to a bunch of Christians who worked tirelessly to end it.

So ask it, a lot.

…I just don’t think turning London into one for those who wish to hunt humans has been a good move for the British.

Under the old English common law a freeman had the right to bear arms, the brits would do well to let the English live under those rules again.

More of this would mean less of that.
