  • Rep Trent Franks: Blacks Were Better Off Under Slavery:

FRANK: In this country, we had slavery for God knows how long. And now we look back on it and we say “How brave were they? What was the matter with them? You know, I can’t believe, you know, four million slaves. This is incredible.” And we’re right, we’re right. We should look back on that with criticism. It is a crushing mark on America’s soul. And yet today, half of all black children are aborted. Half of all black children are aborted. Far more of the African American community is being devastated by the policies of today than were being devastated by policies of slavery. And I think, What does it take to get us to wake up?

  • The Arizona House of Representatives on Tuesday April 12, 2010 passed the Neighborhood Protection Act. The bill is a significant milestone in race and ethnic relations in America. It adopts as its underlying philosophy the basic tenets of apartheid and it harkens back to the Jim Crow laws of America before the Civil Rights Movement.

This piece of legislation basically allows police officers to ask people for their proof of residency based on "suspicion". Which means that every brown, black, asian or "colored" person in Arizona will have to carry their passport, birth certificate or proof of citizenship to avoid being deported.


  • South Carolina's Good Christian Lt. Governor Andre Bauer said: "My grandmother was not a highly educated woman, but she told me as a small child to quit feeding stray animals. You know why? Because they breed! You're facilitating the problem if you give an animal or a person ample food supply. They will reproduce, especially ones that don't think too much further than that."

Strange Fruit
sung by Billie Holiday


Southern trees bear strange fruit
Blood on the leaves
Blood at the root
Black bodies swinging in the southern breeze
Strange fruit hanging from the poplar trees
Pastoral scene of the gallant south
The bulging eyes and the twisted mouth
The scent of magnolia sweet and fresh
Then the sudden smell of burning flesh
Here is a fruit for the crows to pluck
for the rain to gather
for the wind to suck
for the sun to rot
for the tree to drop
Here is a strange and bitter crop

Composed by Abel Meeropol (aka Lewis Allan)
Originally sung by: Billie Holiday

Note:"Strange Fruit" began as a poem written by Abel Meeropol, a Jewish high-school teacher from the Bronx, about the lynching of two black men. He published under the pen name Lewis Allan
