Black Farmer Settlement Stripped From War Bill | Roland S. Martin Blog

I have been having a discussion about noose sightings since the president was elected. Have you ever heard of such a thing? If you have tell your story here. White people, who choose to be racist, think lynching black folks is a fun thing to do because we mean nothing to them–less than an animal.

I have been telling friends similar things. I keep telling them that the Great Migration needs to be discussed. A whole bunch of us moved up north because of lynchings. White people, who choose to be racist, think this is funny--to do this stuff (like kill us) to us as a group. That blogger didn't apologize to Ms. Sherrod. He is supposedly headlining a three-day GOP fundraiser.

The bill that was supposed to award the lawsuit settlement to the black farmers got pushed to the side. Our state and US legislators have not voted on it. It was ripped it out of the war funding bill and there it sits--I guess. That's the story. I wish we still had a black press. Then I would know more about this story–about the black farmers.

WE USED TO HAVE A BLACK PRESS THAT WOULD ALERT US TO THESE THINGS but I guess that time has passed us by. If you are a member of the black press and have written and published an article on this or a similar topic, please link to it here or send me the link. I would like to promote your news article or blog post.
