Asians in Post-Slavery America

Posted by Carlo Montemayor on February 11, 2007

Marco Hewitt, a Pilipino-Anglo phd student from Australia who is visiting the Bay Area, writes about how Asians became the “new slaves” after Black emancipation in his blog Insurgelicious:

Planters and landowners claimed Asians to be preferable to blacks because of their more “docile” and “industrious” nature. This myth of the “docile Asian” took hold despite there being plenty of evidence to the contrary. Political resistance regularly broke out amongst Asian labourers, who demanded land, equal conditions to whites, and the like. The problem was that dissenters were quickly and brutally repressed.

Words to Black Women

Posted by Jack Stephens on February 11, 2007

Ann, who does the blog Beautiful, Also, Are the Souls of My Black Sisters, writes to her fellow Black women:

first, and foremost, black women must confront the demons of our past history in America at the hands of white men’s mistreatment of our foremothers.

Because of this continued devaluation of black women by white men, the legacy of this mythological lie was to be detrimental to black women in so many ways on so many levels. Even unto this day, black women are still looked upon as less than women, as less than being in need of having doors opened for us, as less than in need of having a shoulder to cry on, as less than in need of emotional support and succor, treated as if we have no human feelings, hearts, spirits or minds.
