Did you know that George Washington Carver, the master scientist, was physically castrated at a very young ageby his White plantation owners?Back male slaves that were assigned to work in their master’s house were often castrated. Although it was the white slave owner that were raping their black slaves (males, females and children ) they —with an absurd degree of hypocrisy —believed that black males were sexual deviant that could not control their sexual urges.The slave owners therefor believe that such castration of innocent Black boys was necessary to protect their daughters and wife from their slaves. The fact that Carver was castrated at an early age explains why his voice tone was so high. Carver voice tone was so high because his male hormones were never able to kick in. Male hormones (depending on the person) usually kick in between the ages of 9-16 years old. That is a wide range of years. After the male hormones kick in, it causes your voice to naturally become deeper with more of a base tone.A person castrated before puberty almost never displays any secondary sexual characteristics.This is also the reason why George Washington Carver never had any children. I am sure that the physical castration may also be the reason why Carver never married. Physical castration means that you cannot have sexual relations with anyone. There is not even an urge or desire to have sexual relationships after castration. Black people we have been given a revamped “whitewashed” version of history. A version that make whites appear less historically inhumane by hiding the true brutality of how they have treated we blacks throughout history. Black people conduct your own research and learn our true history.


I never knew this. White people are scum. Like why in the hell do they even exist seriously? They’re the primary reason the world is so fucked up. There’s no disputing that. It’s fact.

Wow didn’t know

History Lesson || Why Women Of Color In The 1800s Were Banned From Wearing Their Hair Out In Public 
BGLH writes:
“Did you know that in late 18th century Louisiana, black and multiracial women were ordered to cover their hair in public?” My sister asked me.
“WOW. Really?” I replied.
I’d probably heard of this in one of my black studies classes in undergrad, but who remembers everything they’ve been taught? Besides, this information felt instantly relevant and I was absolutely intrigued.
With a little digging I found that there was in fact a “law” of sorts that demanded women of color in Louisiana to cover their hair with a fabric cloth starting in 1789 as a part of what was called the Bando du buen gobierno (Edict for Good Government).  What these rules were meant to do was try to curtail the growing influence of the free black population and keep the social order of the time. The edict included sections specifically about the changing of certain “unacceptable” behaviors of the free black women in the colony including putting an end to what he and others believed to be the overly ostentatious hairstyles of these ladies which drew the attention of white men, and the jealousy of white women. These rules are called the “Tignon Laws” A tignon (pronounced “tiyon”) is a headdress.

"I had a child when I was sixteen. I got kicked out of high school because of all the absences. My family and community pretty much wrote me off. But right away I got a job at a sporting goods store. Soon I was able to get a job as a receptionist at a tax company, and they gave me enough responsibilities that I learned how to do taxes. Eventually I learned enough to become an associate. Then I got offered a job at a smaller company, and even though it was a pay cut, they offered me responsibility over all the books— accounts payable, accounts receivable, everything. It was less money but I wanted that experience so I took the risk. And I’m so glad I did, because six months later, the controller of that company left and I was given that position. They told me they couldn’t officially call me the controller because I didn’t have a college degree. So I finished my degree 5 months ago— just to make it official! So after having a child at sixteen, I made it all the way to controller of a company, without even having a college degree. Can you believe that? Honestly, I’ve been waiting to tell that story so long that I told it to a customer service representative on the phone last week. She was nice about it and pretended to care.
