what more do you see in me
what more than a societys reject
to be wiped off completely
what more do you see in me
what more than immoral being
one that deserves death
what more do you see in me
what more than a greedy man hunter
a gold digger!
Am exposed to accusing eyes
eyes that ave labeled me outcast
no one seems to know my story
no one cares why am here
you think i love darkness
if only you knew how darkness is too bright for me
but you don wanna know
please, Do not cry for me!
As i struggle with my pain and shame
i am conscious of yout scornful stares
I can read through the silence
I can read through your stares
I can read through you
Aint asking for your symphathy
it is hypocritical
Aint asking for your assurance
it comes with a price
Just Don't cry for me
While i sink in the gutter
you dine and wine like a king
while my children stare at me with starvation
you stare at them with scorn
while i soak my pillow with tears at night
you judge and ridicule me in the morning
If you dont care about my story
Just look away and please,
Do not cry for me 8 minutes ago - View -
During the entire history of America until the turn of the twentieth century, Indigenous Americans were hunted, killed, and forcibly removed from their lands by European settlers.This includes the paying of bounties beginning in the colonial period with, for example, a proclamation against the Penobscot Indians in 1755 issued by King George II of Great Britain, known commonly as the Phips Proclamation.The proclamation orders, “His Majesty’s subjects to Embrace all opportunities of pursuing, captivating, killing and Destroying all and every of the aforesaid Indians.” The colonial government paid 50 pounds for scalps of males over 12 years, 25 pounds for scalps of women over 12, and 20 pounds for scalps of boys and girls underTwenty-five British pounds sterling in 1755, worth around $9,000 today —a small fortune in those days when an English teacher earned 60 pounds a year.Well, the term "scalp" offended the good Christian women of the community and they asked that another term be found to describe these things. So, the trappers and hunters began using the term "redskin"...they would tell the owner that they had bearskin, deer skins....and "redskins." The term came from the bloody mess that one saw when looking at the scalp...thus the term "red"...skin because it was the "skin" of an "animal" just like the others that they had...so, it became "redskins". So, you see when we see or hear that term...we don't see a football team...we don't see a game being played...we don't see any "honor"...we see the bloody pieces of scalps that were hacked off of our men, women and even our children...we hear the screams as our people were killed...and "skinned" just like animals. Over 100millions natives were slaughtered through out north/central and South America. Columbus slaughtered many indigenous people in his day as well but you are told to celebrate this pirate. 13 minutes ago - View -

Ian Kydd Miller : Chinese ivory trade blamed as poachers drive down elephant population by 2% a year Yes but who is buying the stuff. The f---king chinese make the trinkets but someone has to buy it. Hunt the hunters, jail the traffickers (for a very long time), jail the artisans who make the stuff, isolate the governments who allow this to continue. Collectors and those who buy this stuff need to be severely punished also with long prison sentences and in some cases worse. Only when it is made so painful for the individuals and organisations concerned in this dispicable trade will we stop it, sadly by that time the elephants may never recover. 1 hour ago - View -
