The Claims of the Negro
This site is dedicated to educating people about Black American history & life "from nigger to African American to Black American"

We designed this evolving link library to help people easily find and wonder through historical and present information that is omitted from the history books and the present mainstream media. For Christian

The title "The Claims of the Negro" is influenced by a Frederick Douglass speech

Police Brutality Protest 2000

Amadou Diallo, Malcolm Ferguson, and now Patrick Dorismond: Three unarmed men shot to death by the NYPD. The three men were found to be guilty of no crimes, except being Black in the wrong place-at the wrong time.

41 bullets, millions of whip lashings, countless hangings, millions and millions forced into cheap labor for generations, countless murders, forbidden from education for hundreds of years, 400 years of being treated worse than the mangiest junk yard dog, 500 years of indescribable psychological torment.

NEVER FORGET... Use the power of ALL those who came before you, who despite all these truisms made it possible for you to have a life, a modicum of human dignity, and most of all hope. Honor their collective spirits and efforts. Be the best version of YOU possible.

No sell-out, no compromise, no media tool.
Be proud and loud.
Education is (y)our only weapon.

"I am sick and tired of being sick and tired." Fannie Lou Hamer
"You won't remember the words of those who opposed you, only the silence of your friends." Martin Luther King, Jr.
