    And there was the slavery created by the heinous convict lease system from the end of the Civil War to WW2.

    it’s still hard for me to discuss the movie, but I do believe every Black person should see it and absorb it. This is what was done to us, and still we survived. The power within is right there for us to grasp

    12 Years a Slave is the anecdote for the Paula Deans & Dynasty Duck type fuckery.

  4. I couldn’t discuss 12 Years A Slave after viewing it. I just couldn’t. I had to process the brutality first. It was too much. But keep in mind this kind of brutality went on day after day for over 200 hundred years. Not only were black women & girls beaten and raped but black men & boys too. They suffered monumental atrocities & had no one to protect them. Families destroyed, children ripped from their parents and sold for profit, merciless beatings occurred without blinking an eye. 12 Years A Slave is only a glimpse into the ugly raw monstrous brutality of slavery.

      Spot on, SG2. The reality of the brutatlity and INHUMANE treatment of BLACK PEOPLE; was much too MUCH to witness. Not to mention these people actually enduring the brutality DAY IN AND DAY OUT.

      What stood out in Azi & Amani’s commentary was the fact that Solomon was a FREE MAN who was sold into slavery and lived to write about it. Millions of slaves were not this blessed to live and tell of the HORRORS.

      And now that a segment of America is scratching, scrapping, and longing to take BLACK people back into the pits of HELL with their nightmare of white supremacy…

      OWN AND FACE IT, WE ARE NOT HAPPY NEGROES, WILLING TO ACCEPT THE CRUMBS, YOU’RE THROWING OUT!

      HELL NAW, WE AREN’T GOING BACK!

      And let it be known here on 3 Chics, that the election and re-election of Barrack Obama is only the beginning, so get over it, or MOVE THE FUCK out of America.
