    Re: Its February! Happy Black History Month !

    I agree entirely with Refugi... (early in the thread) - Black History Month was (I assume) put into place by a bunch of old white men who thought that they could really be doing great things for an entire huge group of people by selecting a certain part of the annual solar cycle (which is arbitrarily divided by humans into twelve segments of roughly equal length which don't relate to anything at all in the cosmos or in nature), and naming one of these segments for that group of humanity.

    Yes, it's nothing more than a label slapped onto a span of time which doesn't really mean anything. In no way shape or form does it do anything that measurably benefits, or changes the standard-of-living in any way, for Black people.
    "All legal U. S. residents who are 18 years or older, shall have an unconditional right to vote." - We need a 28th Amendment to the U. S. Constitution which resembles this...NOW!

    VOTING: Just remember: "Be careful of what you DON'T wish for. You might just get it." GET OUT AND VOTE for what you DO wish for.

    "I distrust those people who know so well what God wants them to do, because I notice it always coincides with their own desires" - Susan B. Anthony

    Frank I'm sure the following is what you MEANT to type...Gay Pride week/month that's Celebrated @ Different times in just about every State in this Country doesn't really mean anything. In no way shape or form does it do anything that measurably benefits, or changes the standard-of-living in any way, for Gay people...You've talked about how you travel to different Gay Events..Well did you tell the Gays at those events that their Gathering isnt worth a Damn?

    Wow...It NEVER surprises me how some of you just SHIT on everything....

    Well Black History Month is almost up. That was fast lol.

    Im extremely saddened by the passing of Lou Myers aka Mr Gaines. A Different World is one of my favorite shows of all time.

    During its time, it encouraged so many Black children to go to college.

    We could use something like this today.



    Speaking of Black people making historic television: Diahann Carroll was the first Black woman to star in her own TV show. This was ground breaking because she was a white collar professional. This was one of my mother's favorite shows as a kid and I really don't think that people talk about Ms. Carroll enough. She is really amazing. I wish that Julia was in reruns. I would love to watch it with my mom.



    Here is a cute interview of her on Al Sharpton's Politics Nation

    Happy Black History Month Anne and everyone else on JUB.

    I recently watched a film called The Long Walk Home, starring Whoopi Goldberg, which is about the 1955 Montgomery Bus Boycott. Was very moving, I can't believe there was ever a time like that. I recommend it.

    Jackie Robinson's film will be out in two months. I think that I have posted this trailer here before but its worth posting again. He faced incredible hurdles and the racism was so bad for this man Im surprised that he didn't loose his mind. Very excited about this film.

    My grandfather loved baseball and was so proud of this man.





    Jackie Robinson became the first African-American to play major league baseball, becoming Rookie of the Year in 1947, National League MVP in 1949 and a World Series champ in 1955.



    Quotes from Mr. Robinson:

    Life is not a spectator sport. If you're going to spend your whole life in the grandstand just watching what goes on, in my opinion you're wasting your life.
    I'm not concerned with your liking or disliking me... All I ask is that you respect me as a human being.

    Re: Its February! Happy Black History Month !

    After making the Lil' Wayne/Emmett Till thread:http://www.justusboys.com/forum/thre...ne-Controversy

    (It got moved to the Entertainment section, either I was mistaken about where I put it or perhaps the mods thought that Emmett Till was a rapper) Anyway....

    I realized that many people may not know who Emmett Till was:



    Warning if you google him, you may find some very disturbing photos.

    Fourteen-year-old Emmett Till was visiting relatives in Money, Mississippi on August 24, 1955 when he reportedly flirted with a white cashier at a grocery store. Four days later, two white men kidnapped Till, beat him, and shot him in the head. The men were tried for murder, but an all-white, male jury acquitted them. Till's murder and open casket funeral galvanized the emerging civil rights movement.
    The two men beat the teenager brutally, dragged him to the bank of the Tallahatchie River, shot him in the head, tied him with barbed wire to a large metal fan and shoved his mutilated body into the water.

    Till's death provided an important catalyst for the American Civil Rights Movement. One hundred days after Emmett Till's murder, Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat on an Alabama city bus, sparking the yearlong Montgomery bus boycott.
    American Experience did a fabulous documentary on this entitled The Murder of Emmett Till

    Quotes from Mr. Robinson:
    Although I know there's no crying in baseball, last year when I noticed that one day every player in the Majors was wearing number 42, I got a little bleary-eyed. Jackie Robinson helped to make baseball what it is today. He must have gone through hell being the first African-American to break the color barrier, but there's something about being "first" in anything that is very compelling. Thanks, Jackie!

    Very disturbing. I didn't know who he was, thanks for posting about this incident.

    This quote from one of his killers, on the Wiki entry, made me rage:


    Well, what else could we do? He was hopeless. I'm no bully; I never hurt a nigger in my life. I like niggers—in their place—I know how to work 'em. But I just decided it was time a few people got put on notice. As long as I live and can do anything about it, niggers are gonna stay in their place. Niggers ain't gonna vote where I live. If they did, they'd control the government. They ain't gonna go to school with my kids. And when a nigger gets close to mentioning sex with a white woman, he's tired o' livin'. I'm likely to kill him. Me and my folks fought for this country, and we got some rights. I stood there in that shed and listened to that nigger throw that poison at me, and I just made up my mind. 'Chicago boy,' I said, 'I'm tired of 'em sending your kind down here to stir up trouble. Goddam you, I'm going to make an example of you—just so everybody can know how me and my folks stand.'

    Trayvon Martin was gunned down one year ago today:

    One year after the fatal Florida shooting of unarmed teen Trayvon Martin sparked national debate about gun laws and racial profiling, his parents prepared for a solemn vigil in Manhattan on Tuesday as they continue to crusade for stricter gun laws.
    Meanwhile, George Zimmerman, the neighborhood watch volunteer who shot Martin during an altercation, remained out of sight, preparing for the possibility of a high-profile murder trial scheduled for June in Florida.

    Yeah, there are several documentaries about it. One of the things that has always stood out to me was when the reporters filmed the two White men with their wives moments after the trial they all had smiles on their faces.

    The reporters asked the women: How do you feel ? and they responded I feel fine. No feeling of distress at all. How could you be married to such monsters ? The men obviously did it and sold their stories to a magazine later. Mrs. Till contacted Eisenhower to take the case to the Supreme Court but he did not help her.

    The only good thing about this trial was the fact that the Bryant store in which Till told Mrs. Bryant "Bye, Baby" was boycotted by all of the Black people in the town and eventually went bankrupt.

    How brave was Moes Wright to stand up in front of all those people and point out the men that took his nephew. He could never return to his home. He would have been killed for sure.



    His poor mother. She was also very strong and brave.




    This is hideous American History.

    The Scottsboro Boys is also something to learn about. Yet another unjust case. That trial became a film, documentary and Broadway Musical.



    The Scottsboro Boys were nine black teenage boys accused of rape in Alabama in 1931. The landmark set of legal cases from this incident dealt with racism and the right to a fair trial.

    Okay, enough of the DEPRESSING stuff for today:

    For anyone who cares, this is one of my favorite musicals Memphis.

    Set in the 1950's, Memphis is loosely based on Memphis disc jockey Dewey Phillips, one of the first white DJs to play Black music in the 1950s. It played on Broadway from October 19, 2009 to August 5, 2012

    It was great getting to "re-familiarize" myself with so many individuals I hold in such high regard, as well as learning about people I've never heard of or known much about.

    Oh my gosh, thankyou guys for posting in it.

    Im so happy that people kept it going and contributed to it.

    I too learned a lot this year...a hell of a lot more than I did last year.

    When the other heritage months come around again, I would love to learn more about influential people from the Asian, Latino, Native background. Its so interesting.

    I made it all the way to the last episode and had to turn it off. I almost lost my mind.

    Yessss....gurl. The first time I read about this/saw the documentaries and such, I was PISSSSSSED!

    let me just stop right now. I have not the words to explain the anger I felt at such injustice. I hope there IS a hell, just so people like that can find their way there and burn for eternity.

She seemed like such a beautiful person who never backed down to intimidation or hardships. She handled her child's death, the aftermath, etc. like a boss. Mad respect for her. I don't think I could have made it...

    Roots was a very emotional watch for me the first few times around as well. I found it mind-boggling how anyone could live/survive through such situations. Thankfully, there were some lighter, touching moments shown throughout. So one minute, tears were falling, and I was smiling the next. It must have took all kinds of faith to have lived in those days...

    I hope you decide to finish that last episode one day. The ending is really nice, and it gives some sense of closure/hope.

    Not one mention of Thurgood Marshall?

    He was the the lawyer who argued for the plaintiff Oliver Brown in the infamous Brown v. Board of Education. In 1967 he became the first African-American appointed to the U.S. Supreme Court. He served on the court for 24 years before retiring in 1991.

    He died of heart failure in 1993 at the age of 84. He was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom after his death by President Clinton.




    Fun Fact: Elena Kagan, one of the current Supreme Court Justices, was one of his law clerks.

    Yes, yes, she was really incredible. Thankyou for highlighting that, she deserves the most respect in the Emmett Till story. It still baffles me how the case didn't get to the Supreme Court. I mean, even in 1955, come on. You just want to reach through the screen and start to strangle some of these people. I can't even imagine how she went on. I would really love to read her autobiography one day.

    These people were just too brave for me. When I watched the PBS special on the Freedom Riders, they were all my age. I asked myself could I have done this ? Before they got on the bus they all signed their last will and testaments. They knew what they were getting themselves into.

    Yes, I would love to. I shouldn't have watched it back to back like that. I didn't realize how emotional I was going to get. I just thought that I was going to sit down and watch a good film lol.... but its so much more than that.

    Sorry Axxess, you're right. Its just so hard to get everyone. Marshall deserves to be mentioned. I watched Laurence Fishbourne play him in the one man show Thurgood. He was brillant and I learned a lot about Thurgood Marshall. The love that he had for his wife, his dedication to the movement, his intelligence... definately worth mentioning.

    I feel really honored, I got to see and meet Melissa Harris-Perry tonight. She was lecturing on Women in Politics: White women, WOC, Queer women. She was great and is really beautiful and lovely. She is one of the most intelligent people that I have ever seen and is FUNNY! I loved how down to earth she was, throwing around ('nevas' instead of never and 'sista' instead of sister lol). I felt like this was a perfect way to spend the last day of Black History Month.

    Contemporary Black scholars are Black History in the making.

    Thank you everyone that contributed to this thread. I was looking over it today and was really impressed with the information. I learned A TON!. Im so proud.

    Please do...
