the last two frames of this kill me
I will reblog this forever.
Wayne Brady got that elmo dance down.
Did you know that George Washington Carver, the master scientist, was physically castrated at a very young age
by his White plantation owners?
Back male slaves that were assigned to work in their master’s house were often castrated.
Although it was the white slave owner that were raping their black slaves (males, females and children ) they —with an absurd degree of hypocrisy —believed that black males were sexual deviant that could not control their sexual urges.
The slave owners therefor believe that such castration of innocent Black boys was necessary to protect their daughters and wife from their slaves.
The fact that Carver was castrated at an early age explains why his voice tone was so high. Carver voice tone was so high because his male hormones were never able to kick in. Male hormones (depending on the person) usually kick in between the ages of 9-16 years old.
That is a wide range of years. After the male hormones kick in, it causes your voice to naturally become deeper with more of a base tone.
A person castrated before puberty almost never displays any secondary sexual characteristics.
This is also the reason why George Washington Carver never had any children.
I am sure that the physical castration may also be the reason why Carver never married.
Physical castration means that you cannot have sexual relations with anyone. There is not even an urge or desire to have sexual relationships after castration.
Black people we have been given a revamped “whitewashed” version of history. A version that make whites appear less historically inhumane by hiding the true brutality of how they have treated we blacks throughout history.
Black people conduct your own research and learn our true history.
White people need to thank there lucky stars black people are not aimlessly violent and demonic like they are.
After all they’ve done to our people? We remain calm. We do not force ourselves upon others and THAT itself is an act of humanity.
But every fuse has it’s end…
I can’t look at his face and think about this. When you think you’ve heard everything, then…
Dr. Maya Angelou speaks explicitly about her experience with the stigma and shame of being a sex worker/former sex worker.
"I had a very rough time at 18… and I went on a national show and a woman did the interview who I knew slightly [she smiles softly here and raises her eyebrows] and she said “Maya Angelou! How does it feel to know you’re the first Black woman to have a national bestseller non fiction, your second book nominated for the Pulitzer, and to know that at 18 you were a prostitute?”
And it was like a kick in the stomach! However, there is this: You must always be careful who you call out. [She smiles very broadly here and nods to emphasise the word “careful”] When she said that, I said, “Ahhh but there are many ways to prostitute one’s self and you would know about that, wouldn’t you dear?”
Whereupon they went to break, [The interviewer laughs heartily] Yes, whereupon her co-host came and concluded the interview.”
