JOKES & RIDDLES for Children (Clean Fun) from Brownielocks. Note: This page stretches due to the longest word in the US language (shown at bottom) When I was a ventriloquist, I not only wrote my own jokes, but I would also buy a lot of joke books (from bookstores, yard sales, etc.). It is impossible to present you with all the jokes I have. But, as I find jokes I enjoy, I will try to present them to you based on author, category or whatever. I also realize that my sense of humor might not mesh with yours. So please bear (pun intended) with me because I've tried to post jokes that do not offend but amuse.

5 Things About Slavery You Probably Didn't Learn In Social Studies: A Short Guide To 'The Half Has Never Been Told' Edward Baptist's new book, "The Half Has Never Been Told: Slavery And The Making Of American Capitalism", drew a lot of attention last month after the Economist said it was too hard on slave owners. What you might not have taken away from the ensuing media storm is that "The Half Has Never Been Told" is quite a gripping read. Baptist weaves deftly between analysis of economic data and narrative prose to paint a picture of American slavery that is pretty different from what you may have learned in high school Social Studies class. The whole thing is well worth reading in full. Baptist positions his book in opposition to textbooks that present slavery like a distant aberration of American history, cramming 250 years into a few chapters in a way "that cuts the beating heart out of the story." To counter that image of history, Baptist devotes much of the book to depicting the lived experience of enslavement in a way that's vivid and immediate.
