History of US Deparvity

                                                History of US Depravity

                                    "At least one picture shows an American soldier apparently raping a female prisoner while another is said to show a male translator raping a male detainee. Further photographs are said to depict sexual assaults on prisoners with objects including a truncheon, wire and a phosphorescent tube."

            When photographs of US soldiers abusing detainees at Guantanamo's high security prison were first shown, Americans recoiled in shock and disbelief. The pictures were in stark contrast to the narrative about the US "bringing justice" to terrorists and radical Islamists. Most people experienced cognitive dissonance when they saw the pictures, they could not believe  their government, their soldiers would commit such vile acts. This unwillingness to believe the fiendish depravity of "their soldiers" is a testament to the effectiveness of the brainwashing, propaganda and mind control technology of the ruling class than anything else.
            The Europeans who came to this hemisphere came in search of wealth, gold, fortunes and they used ruthless violence, cunning and degeneracy to get what they wanted. Their first victims were the indigenous inhabitants of the Caribbean, then subsequently South, Central and North America. Cristobol Colon (aka Christopher Columbus) recorded in his journals how his men ran down the Arawaks with armored attack dogs, shot them point blank with small canons and killed them with swords, lances and pikes. His men raped the Native women. Colon set the tone and tenor for cultural contacts between whites and indigenous people in the so called "New World".
            This pattern replicated everywhere on this planet Europeans ventured. It multiplied and continued as more European nation states were attracted by ideas of empire and unimaginable wealth. The cruelty and barbarism the Europeans brought with them continues to this very day.
            When the British came to North America they imitated the behavior of the Spanish and Portuguese.  Unable to enslave and subjugate the indigenous people, they turned to white servitude which eventually proved unproductive because the whites couldn't tolerate the hard work. Plus the whites could run away, blend into other colonies or start their own settlements despite their brands and signs of servitude. So the British did like other Europeans, they turned towards Africa.
            Most of us are familiar with the horrors of the slave trade, the physical abuse, the brutality, desecration and degradation our ancestors experienced at the hands of whites. We can

look around and see the results of the hundreds of years worth of rape and forced "relations" but we don't talk much about the other horrors our ancestors faced.
            We don't talk about the crass depravity the white enslavers and their overseers forced on black boys and men, the sodomy and rape by white men. Given the rampant pedophilia of the Catholic Church, the pedophilia scandals in England and the suppressed scandals here in the US we should not be shocked or surprised about the sexual abuse heaped upon both Black females, males and children!
            During slavery, enslavers routinely abused and took advantage of our ancestors both male and female! Like most of the atrocities committed against our people, the Europeans covered them up, dismissed them or trivialized them leaving us to try to regroup, deal with the psycho-physical trauma and attempt to make sense out of this insanity! But there is little documentation of this deviant behavior. Like much of what transpired during US slavery the dastardly deeds of the slave catchers, ship captains, mates, jailers and owners were whitewashed and swept under the proverbial rug.
            There is a scholarly thesis by Chelsea Clarey May a Masters Degree candidate at Clemson University entitled THE METONYM OF EDENIC MASCULINITY: DEPICTIONS OF MALE-MALE RAPE IN INCIDENTS IN THE LIFE OF A SLAVE GIRL AND PROPERTY,
theses that examines this subject based upon the real life narratives of a slave girl and a fictionalized account of slavery.
            A lack of scholarly research on this topic aside, these abuses were real and their effects linger on, festering beneath the surface of our psyches contributing to the trauma and pain even today. This helps to explain our maladaptive responses to our oppression. The new research field of epigenetics is revealing how psychic pain, trauma and habits can be transmitted across generations and have major impact often unbeknownst to the person and their descendants.
            Now scientists are speculating that the experiences of a parent can impact the genes of their offspring without altering the DNA structure This means the horrors our ancestors experienced during slavery have impacted us and unless we find ways to truly heal ourselves, (even within this insanely racist and evil culture) we will perpetuate them in future generations. It is a combination of nature and nurture so we must be the ones to control our socio-psychological and physical environments so we do not further traumatize ourselves and our progeny.
