Pingback: Sam Pollard's Slavery By Another Name Documentary-Black Enterprise()
I just finished watching this documentary. It is extremely powerful about how many African Americans were wrongfully convicted and sold by prisons to Steel, lumber, Coal and turpentine companies between the years of the Civil War and World War II.
I am in awe of the ignorance and greed that has fueled this country but I am also proud that I come from a lineage of people that never stopped fighting.
The thirteenth amendment sets the conditions for slavery and does not abolish slavery.
Passed by Congress January 31, 1865. Ratified December 6, 1865.
Note: A portion of Article IV, section 2, of the Constitution was superseded by the 13th amendment.
Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction.
Congress shall have power to enforce this article by appropriate legislation.

Maybe at some point itll do better yet in those areas, but for now its a wonderful way to organize and listen to your music and videos, and it’s without peer in that regard. The iPods strengths are its web browsing and apps. If those sound more compelling, perhaps it is your most suitable choice.

I am a very talkative person by nature and I love to chitchat on my mobile the whole day. Due to this habit, I was lately receiving quite of nudging from my parents but all my worries were solved when I downloaded this magical app called Smart Mouth Mobile App.
