We are a worldwide social network of freethinkers, atheists, agnostics and secular humanists.

'Mummy, can you spray my face white?'-

Isn't this the saddest story you've heard in a long time.

How can a society that call's itself civilised make a child feel like that? When are we going to reach that time when the colour of a child's skin won't matter.

On being White:

please take the time to watch the documentary   http://worldchannel.org/programs/episode/arf-s4-424-by-blood/
I’ve read mixed reports about blacks in Indian tribes.  One I read said that escaped black slaves found refugee status and were taken into the Seminole tribe.  
This documentary says five Indian tribes kept African slaves.  The documentary continues by saying that in 1999 the ‘blacks’ were kicked out as citizens from the tribe(s).

About This Episode


Americans are familiar with the removal of Cherokees in the infamous “Trail of Tears,” but the involvement of African American slaves is far less known. When the U.S. Indian Removal Act forced Native Americans to relinquish their native land and move west, countless slaves followed them into the frontier, bound and shackled. In 1866, after U.S. lawmakers amended the Constitution to bar slavery, the Cherokee Nation entered into a treaty with the federal government, granting perpetual freedom and full tribal membership to Cherokee slaves and their descendants — newly minted Cherokee members — the “Freedmen.” 

By Blood picks up 150 years later. The Cherokee Nation — a wealthy tribe, with land, casinos and various business holdings — argues that Freedmen descendants are not members of their tribe “by blood” because they descended from the tribe’s former slaves. The Cherokee Nation and another former slave-holding nation, the Seminole Nation, began denying tribal rights to Freedmen descendants more than a decade ago. 

By 1920, Tulsa had become home to many successful black entrepreneurs. Tensions between the city’s white residents over the success of African Americans in Jim Crow Oklahoma grew intense and on June 1, 1921 they erupted into the Tulsa Race Riots. Sparked by a dubious conflict and led by the Ku Klux Klan, it destroyed Tulsa’s then-booming African American community of 30 city blocks including the area known as Black Wall Street. The film examines the region’s present-day lingering racial tensions, particularly on Tulsa’s north side: a predominately African American neighborhood that is also Cherokee Territory and home to many Freedmen who are struggling economically. 

By Blood chronicles Freedmen descendants Roshon Jones, Sylvia Davis, and Marilyn Vann, as well as civil rights advocates David Cornsilk and Jon Velie, whose roles illustrate tenuous race relations across Oklahoma. Ultimately, the documentary illustrates how federal encroachment over Indian territories led to Oklahoma’s statehood and fueled its violent history, as well as the divisive legacy of racial classification by the one-drop rule.
Is there a better group to post the above subject?

Is the topic becoming too rough.  I had a pet guinea pig and a couple of pet chickens that purred like cats. If you have the space to raise chickens (from hatchlings) I recommend it.  They are a lot of fun.  My cats got along great with the chickens, the guinea pig and a crow I brought home with a broken wing.  

I learned crows don't like snails, or slugs.  The crows wing healed after a month or so and hung out in the back yard while exercising his wing muscles.  He hung out around for a couple more months before flying off.  I wonder how much he visited after he healed.

They just know.

How lovely

Comment by Mrs.B on July 16, 2018 at 3:53am

Yes, they are great company, good fun, & far more entertaining than the tv programs we're expected to watch.

Some will nurse us if we're not doing well. My husband just had heart surgery, & the cats were ''taking care'' of him.

Love the photos Mrs B, I had guinea pigs too and hamsters, a gerbil, fish, stick insects and a budgie. It sounds like I live in a zoo but most of them I didn't have at the same time. I quite like cats but I don't understand how to read them.

It's nice to have the company of pets too, they're always up to something.

They are also good for lowering blood pressure.

Comment by Stephen on July 15, 2018 at 11:05pm

I think. Having pets especially dog's or cats is good for your health. I remember reading that people with a pet are less likely to suffer from depression.

Comment by Mrs.B on July 15, 2018 at 5:56pm

I can't imagine life without pets. We also had guinea pigs, rabbits, & birds at one time.
