Roughly one of every four slaves imported to work the cotton and tobacco plantations of the American South began his or her journey across the Atlantic from equatorial Africa, including the Kongo kingdom. The KiKongo language, spoken around the Congo RIver’s mouth, is one of the African tongues whose traces linguists have found in the Gullah dialect spoken by black Americans today on the coastal islands of South Carolina and Georgia.

Can we stop acting like Obama evem knows what the fuck he’s signing? Most of this shit never evem makes it to him. It goes through the Secretary of Defense.

^^^^ this! 

Like seriously. People have fallen into the ‘blame obama’ trap and think that the president really has a fucking say in anything regarding the DoD besides the Marines.
Y’all need to learn how politics and the US Government works. Most of the time the president signs shit off the word of his advisors and aides.
And guess what? Politics is dirty business. For all you folks know he might not even be aware that he’s signing away the lives of innocent people.
The Secretary of Defense is the one in charge of…and here’s the brilliant twist. ..DEFENSE.

The Real Django:
This is the actual man on which the movie D’Jango is loosely based.  His name is Dangerfield Newby, and he was a member of the John Brown party . He joined to save his wife and children, Harriet. Their love story was real, and you all should check out their narrative and love letters.

So why am I just now finding out that Rapgenius.com (a website that “translates” rap lyrics) was founded by 3 white male Yale students.

They are making millions off this site. Funny thing is that their users are the ones breaking down down the lyrics.

Idk why but I always thought it was founded by black folks.
