  • @ Pachamama,

    You are correct. It’s just another video of a black man being brutalised by the white establishment. Frankly, it should not surprise anybody.

    Before I leave this earth it would be my dream to witness the spiritual coming together of the negro race. A negro race, no longer prepared to remain death, dumb and mute. A race of people prepared to defend their self-interests right to their last drop of blood.

    We are the people
    Still the wretched of the earth
    At the end of God’s day
    We persevere through the hurt
    We are the ones

    We are the world

    Come on, Michael, that’s a motherf*cking lie
    We the people at the fish fry
    We the eighty six percent with heart disease
    Gucci, Louis Vuitton, Nike shoes wearing, no banking accounts
    No misbehaving, catching the blame
    Same old same lotto playing

  • Land reform beneficiary shames critics
    Published May 29, 2014 | By Netho Francisco
    THE Land Reform Programme which benefitted more than 400 000 households after reclaiming land from the minority
    4 000 white commercial farmers has since its inception, more than a decade ago, taken a flak mainly from the international media and Western governments opposed to the initiative.
    But a visit last week by The Patriot to Winsross Tsambatare’s farm in Mhangura showed that these anti-Land Reform and Resettlement Programme claims were a gimmick by former white commercial farmers, both the local and international media and other critics to discredit the potential success of the land redistribution exercise.
    Tsambatare is one of the many successful beneficiaries of the land reform exercise and undisputable evidence of how black Zimbabweans have not only successfully taken back their land but become highly productive, some surpassing the levels of former white commercial farmers.
    The Mashonaland West-based farmer who got 146 hectares during the exercise has been recording increased production since 2003 when he got the farm.
    Tsambatare said he has been able to operate at full capacity, utilising 100 percent of his arable land.
    He said he has been realising an average of at least 300 tonnes of commercial maize per season which he delivered to local grain millers.
    “Since the time I benefitted from the land redistribution exercise I have been engaged in commercial maize production with a small percentage dedicated to seed production,” Tsambatare said.
    “I produce at least 100 tonnes of seed maize for a local seed manufacturing company that I have entered into a contract with.
    “Production at the farm is moving successfully and I must admit that I am realising profits every year and at the moment I farm at least 38 hectares of commercial maize.”
    Apart from maize production, Tsambatare is also involved in bulk production of legumous crops.
    “My average production of soya beans per season is 25 tonnes which I intend to maintain in the coming years,” he said.
    “I am also involved in sugar bean production with an output of at least 15 tonnes per season.”
    Contrary to false claims by the international media that indigenous farmers do not have the capacity to cultivate the land due to lack of machinery, Tsambatare has managed to acquire sophisticated machinery that is needed for commercial agriculture.
    “I have managed to buy four tractors, two planters and four sets of harrows that have enabled me to boost production,” he said.
    “I was also able to purchase two trucks with a capacity of seven and 10 tonnes that I use to transport my inputs and outputs.”
    In their bid to undermine local farmers, former white commercial farmers also claimed that beneficiaries of the land reform exercise were realising a lot of losses and failed to pay back loans to banks.
    “My success was mainly encouraged by the support I am getting from local banks who have been giving me loans to boost my working capital,” Tsambatare said.
    “I have established good relationship with borrowers who are supporting me with money to buy inputs though we still need more loans to increase our production and buy more equipment.”
    Tsambatare has constructed workers houses to accommodate his 24 permanent employees.
    “Apart from my permanent workers, I also employ more than 50 workers on contract during harvesting periods,” he said.
    “I try by all means to upgrade and please my workers to motivate them to work hard in boosting the yield.”
    Tsambatare said farming had greatly improved his life.
    “I used to run other businesses in Chinhoyi, but I quit after realising that agriculture was more profitable,” he said.
    “With my farming proceeds I have managed to build a new farm house and buy top of the range cars on cash basis.
    “When I came here to start farming I did not have much but agriculture has transformed my life.”
    Farmers in the country, despite challenges they are facing, have made significant strides, sprinting where white farmers crawled.
    For instance, the amount of tobacco produced by indigenous farmers has since surpassed output that came from the former white commercial farmers.
    This has proved that black farmers are just as good, if not better.

    Redistribution of Plantations land is one step to correct the evils of slavery & racism.

  • Slave mistresses were more popular in the main port Bridgetown because during the “hard season”between crops the estate owners began to “let” them “out” as prostitutes for cash in ever-increasing numbers to the ever-growing number of taverns in the ever-expanding maritime trade. The planters found easy, convenient money. It was more profitable than using these wenches as breeding stock. These slave girls were sent to the soldiers’ barracks just outside of town for the commission officers and the soldiers.

  • ” By 1790-91 the question of slave prostitution was raised before the House of Commons Inquiry into the slave trade and all evidence was heard. In 1837 when Sturge and Harvey carried out their “emancipation” tour of the British West Indies, most hotels and taverns in Bridgetown were still considered “house of debauchery”and full of prostitutes. A man called Cooper from the abolitionist lobby said the slave population did not achieve positive growth because of the prevalence of prostitution among young females – on the estates as well as in town

    A. Horton writes that sharpened by a keen sense of a male dominated society they “pro-actively”pursued prostitution. Edward Long, a defender of slavery stated that black women were born for it; that they were highly efficient performing sex machines without morals: “From their youth they are taught to be whores, and to expect their living to be derived from immoral earnings.” J. B. Moreton, in 1790, blamed their mothers who arranged the clients and received the money out of their daughters’ bodies.”

  • @ David,

    This interesting video clip will not surprise you. It merely confirms that the residue of slavery has left an indelible mark in all countries which accepted the enslavement of the negro as an accepted economic model.
