Carson Byrd and Matthew W. Hughey September 28 A scene from “Call the Midwife” shows the joy of a wiggly infant. (Courtesy of Laurence Cendrowicz/Neal Street Productions) The history of interracial sex: It's much more than just rape or romance. When South African comedian Trevor Noah takes over as host of "The Daily Show" on Monday night, he'll probably introduce his new audience to his family biography.
Born in Johannesburg to a black South African mother and a white Swiss German father in 1984, when apartheid was still firmly in place and interracial marriage was illegal, Noah made his parents' struggles the subject of his widely acclaimed stand-up routine "Born a Crime. " Their story represents an exception to one of apartheid's harshest realities: White men sexually violated black women with impunity. But neither is it a romantic tale of racial transcendence. Noah has been frank about how his Xhosa mother paid the greater price for her relationship with a white man. Not only did she face social stigma and arrest, she was also left to raise Noah alone when his father exercised his white male privilege and left South Africa. How Slavery's Legacy Affects the Mental Health of Black Americans. On July 22, in announcing the federal indictment of Charleston killer Dylann Roof, Attorney General Loretta Lynch commented that the expression of forgiveness offered by the victims’ families is “an incredible lesson and message for us all.”
Forgiveness and grace are, indeed, hallmarks of the Black Church. Since slavery, the church has been a formidable force for the survival of blacks in an America still grappling with the residual effects of white supremacy. This was eloquently illustrated in the aftermath of the Charleston church massacre. Subjects Without an Empire: The Irish in the Early Modern Caribbean. During the seventeenth century, thousands of Irish men and women were unwilling migrants to the Caribbean, ‘barbadoesed’ to toil in tobacco or cane fields or deported following the post-1641 Ulster uprising and Cromwellian reprisals.
Few who are familiar with this particular century (and the long sweep of antagonisms between the English and Irish in Ireland) would be surprised to hear that in 1656 in Barbados, Cornelius Bryan was sentenced to twenty-one lashes on ‘the bare back’ for declaring (as he ate a plate of meat) ‘that if there was as much English Blood in the Tray as there was meat he would eat it’.1 As one of those who most likely suffered transportation, Bryan’s declaration seems an iconic voice of protest against English forces that had removed him from his land, exploited his labour, and repressed the practice of his Catholicism. The forgotten history of Britain's white slaves. Dominic Sandbrook reviews White Cargo: the Forgotten History of Britain's White Slaves in America by Don Jordan and Michael Walsh In April 1775, two days after the American War of Independence began, a notice appeared in the Virginia Gazette offering rewards for the return of 10 runaways.
Two were "Negro slaves", but the other eight were white servants, including Thomas Pearce, a 20-year-old Bristol joiner, and William Webster, a middle-aged Scottish brick-maker. Whether they were ever found remains a mystery; almost nothing is known about them but their names. But their irate master was to become very famous indeed, for the man pursuing his absconding servants was called George Washington.
Pearce and Webster were indentured servants, the kind of people often ignored in patriotic accounts of colonial America. Irish Girl Enslaved In Barbados - tribunedigital-sunsentinel. March 31, 2002|By Jean Patteson Books correspondent Testimony of an Irish Slave Girl.

Viking. $24.95. 206 pp. Cot Daley was just 13 when she was captured, stowed below decks in the filth and darkness of a slave ship, transported across the Atlantic to Barbados and sold on the block to the master of a sugar and tobacco plantation.

They were now free, with cash in hand. If they wished they could lease or buy land, buy or trade in slaves or hire them out to others. Alternatively they could migrate to another colony where there were better opportunities. ‘Irish slaves’: the convenient myth. The conflation of indentured servitude with chattel slavery in the ‘Irish slaves’ narrative whitewashes history in the service of Irish nationalist and white supremacist causes. Its resurgence in the wake of Ferguson reflects many Americans’ denial of the entrenched racism still prevalent in their society. It was with a heavy heart and no small amount of anger that I decided it was necessary to write a public refutation of the insidious myth that the Irish were once chattel slaves in the British colonies. The subject of this myth is not an issue in academic circles, for there is unanimous agreement, based on overwhelming evidence, that the Irish were never subjected to perpetual, hereditary slavery in the colonies, based on notions of ‘race’.
Unfortunately this is not the case in the public domain and the ‘Irish slaves’ myth has been shared so frequently online that it has gone viral.

A longstanding orthodoxy among social scientists holds that human races are a social construct and have no biological basis. A related assumption is that human evolution halted in the distant past, so long ago that evolutionary explanations need never be considered by historians or economists.
