Community, Memes, and New York: Ex-Slave Who Taught Jack Daniels How to Make Whiskey Will Be Honored With New Foundation @balleralert Ex-Slave Who Taught Jack Daniels How to Make Whiskey Will Be Honored With New Foundation - blogged by: @msjennyb β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β € β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β € Nearly 143 years after the initial production of JackDaniels Whiskey, the ex-slave that taught the founder the craft of whiskey distilling is receiving a new honor in the wake of the recent news of his involvement in the Whiskey history. β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β € β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β € Last year, a NewYorkTimes article about Nathan β€œNearest” Green, a slave from Lynchburg, TN who taught Daniels the trade, went viral, sparking the interest of New York Times best-selling author Fawn Weaver. After looking into Green’s story, Weaver launched a foundation in his honor. β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β € β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β € β€œThe idea that there were positive stories out there of whites’ and blacks’ working side by side, through and beyond the Civil War, resonated with me,” Weaver said in a statement last week. β€œI liked the story of Jack Daniel, but Nearest Green’s story and the community at large really stayed with me.” β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β € β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β € Weaver is looking to start a museum in Lynchburg through the foundation, highlighting Green’s contribution to Tennessee Whiskey’s history, in addition to a national park, a book on his achievements and a scholarship fund to assist Green’s descendants. β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β € β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β € The author also purchased the former home of Dan Call, who kept Green as a slave. At the 313 acre home, Green taught Call’s neighbor, Jack, how to make whiskey. Eventually, Call gave the land up to Jack, which eventually became the first Jack Daniels distillery. β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β € β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β € Upon purchasing the land, Weaver found documents that showed Jack and Green’s families working together for decades. β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β € β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β € In turn, the brand’s president revealed his excitement for Weaver’s efforts. β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β € β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β € β€œOur primary ambition is to do all that should be done to honor the memory and role of Nearest Green and, therefore, we recognize any activity that supports this ultimate goal as worthy,” said Mark McCallum president of Jack Daniel’s Brand.

America, Birthday, and Blackhistory: saquea Civil War veteran Sylvester Magee lived to be 130 years old (1841-1971). He was likely the last living human being who possessed any firsthand memory of the trials of the Civil War or institutionalized slavery. "Some historians have stated it would have been impossible for a person who neither reads nor writes to have related the stories of the Civil War in such detail as Magee without having served in the conflict. One historian stated that Magee talked with 'rare intelligence and seldom rambled' in telling of his participation in the Civil War. βž–βž–βž–βž–βž–βž–βž–βž–βž–βž–βž–βž–βž–βž–βž–βž–βž– βž–βž–βž– He lived to be, according to history and the data that we’ve collected throughout the Internet, he was 130 years of age when he passed away in 1971. Sylvester Magee had no birth certificate, but chancery court records in Covington County list him and his father as being passed on to the next of kin when their owner died in 1859. Mr. Magee always insisted his birthday was May 29th, 1841. Now as if being 130 years old when he died weren’t enough, there are a couple of OTHER significant details about his life and death that sets him apart. Not only was that old, but he was the last American slave (slavery victim in America) to die. And, because he did service with the Union Army in the siege of Vicksburg, he was the last Union Veteran to die. And since he started the war as an arms bearer to his master on the side of the South, he is perhaps also the last CONFEDERATE veteran to die. βž–βž–βž–βž–βž–βž–βž–βž–βž–βž–βž–βž–βž–βž–βž–βž–βž–βž–βž– He’s listed in the book 'Black Confederates.' His accounts of the Union Army crossing the Big Black River after the Battle of Champion Hill on their way into Vicksburg convinced historian A. P. Andrews he had to have been there, since Mr. Magee couldn’t read or write. How else could he have known all the minute details and names of the officers? 😊 And don’t forget, he also lived to be 130 years of age." β™₯️ Source Sylvester Magee’s unmarked grave MSNewsNow.com - blackthen.com βž–βž–βž–βž–βž–βž–βž–βž–βž–βž–βž–βž–βž–βž–βž–βž–βž–βž–βž– SylvesterMagee BlackHistory theblaquelioness

Anaconda, Cars, and Future: EPIC FAILIN 2017 WHITES STILL DENYING DEFENDING SLAVERV FF akwumX No Crop Video @Regrann from @crackedrosecoloredglasses_us - Repost kwumx ・・・ Quanell X exposing this POS Matt Patrick who represents everything thats repulsive in white amerikkkan culture..and why this country CANNOT heal or move forward with its UGLY racist legacy. According to this vernim..his ancestors, who were RAPING - ENSLAVING - LYNCHING - BRANDING -MUTILATING - PROFITEERING etc.. had NO IDEA what was going on during the Civil War..πŸ˜’ The complete apathy, denial and boldface lies. Matt Patrick was diagnosed with cancer last year. I feel as much pity for him as he has for the victims of his savage ancestors. ZERO. May he rot in piecesπŸ’€ Their discussion regards: Two days ago a New Orleans civic board decided after over 100 yrs, the 4 confederate momunents dedicated to white raping enslaving scum should go. Care to guess what happened? Rabid whites actually BLEW UP ..yes BOMBED cars of contractors hired to remove these monuments and made serious death threats.. Somehow this whiteterrorism never made the newsπŸ˜’. So another anonymous contractor was hired who's employees had to wear MASKS while dismantling (for fear of being identified and killed by these savages) They actually had to work to dismantle at 4am accompanied by Armed police snipers to protect them..πŸ˜’ Some cretins actually showed up shouting and making threats screaming about their "states rights" being violated. 3 more statues are slated to be removed in the near future as well. Imagine reaction if Germans had erected a statue of Hitler and SS Leaders in a town with a heavy JEWISH population..It would have been taken down centuries ago..NO QUESTION!! Time to evolve white amerikkka!! ------ regrann

Future, Memes, and Money: Black hawk down is one of the most racist and dishonest movies ever made... Ochakabars lt basically brands all Somalis as pirates, while glorifying the US military murdering, Ooo Somali people, many were innocent If you want the knowledge to spread tag everyone... The movie depicts a raid gone wrong during the 1993 U.S. occupation of Somalia, leading to the deaths of 18 U.S. soldiers and some 1,000 Somalis. Donald Rumsfeld and the Pentagon brass hoped it would help to whip up patriotism and justify future military adventures to stop "terrorism." But actor BRENDAN SEXTON III, who appeared in the movie, believes that the real story of the U.S. government's "humanitarian" mission in Somalia is very different. In certain scenes, U.S. soldiers-before they even entered the now-infamous firefights in Mogadishu-were asking whether the U.S. should be there, how effective the U.S. military presence was, and why the U.S. was targeting one specific warlord in Somalia, Gen. Mohammed Farah Aidid. As we moved closer to actually filming the script, the script moved further and further away from the little that existed of its questioning character. The U.S. Army Rangers, who we were portraying in the film, are an elite group of soldiers that only number 1,500 or so. Their average age is 19. They're not Special Forces, but they carry out "Special Ops" DURING THE Cold War, Somalia was a client state of the former USSR, with the U.S. supporting the regime of King Haile Selassie in rival Ethiopia. When Haile Selassie was overthrown, the alliances switched, and the U.S. then backed the dictator Siad Barre in Somalia. From the late 1970s onward, the U.S. sent about $50 million a year in arms to Barre's regime to help him keep a tight grip on the country. When repression wasn't enough, Barre exploited divisions among the different clans in Somalia. When Barre was overthrown, these clan rivalries exploded. The civil war that followed caused a horrible famine that took 300,000 lives, as the warring factions took over the farms of rival clans and burned their crops. Had the U.S. given Somalia constructive aid-like money for agriculture and infrastructure, instead of military aid-the famine most likely never would have happened. U.S. intervention was supposedly to stop this famine, but the reality is completely different... chakabars more below
