Inscriptions on Uruguay Coast Suggest West Africans Beat Columbus to Americas

Archaeoastronomer William James Veall scoured satellite images of Uruguay’s coastline, discovering a mass of inscriptions carved into the surface of a 2.3-mile (4,700-meter) long, white, crystalline rock formation. Studying the inscriptions, he realized that he may have found evidence of a successful expedition from the Old World to the the New World that predated the arrival of Christopher Columbus. And it wasn’t Viking script either. Thus, the inscriptions seem to have been left by an expedition not recorded in today’s history books.

Veall’s specialty as an archaeoastronomer is to...

An insensitive Amtrak conductor tried to boot Sherrilyn Ifill, the director-counsel of the NAACP’s Legal Defense Fund, from her seat on a Baltimore-bound train she boarding in Washington, D.C., Friday evening — the start of the Martin Luther King Day holiday weekend — despite having no discernible reason.

Thankfully, Ifill tweeted the whole story.
College Park Georgia just elected a black female mayor
  • 3,180
  • 49
College Park, GA is 81% Black and only 14% white. The incumbent was white, 66 years old and in feeble health after 24 years in office. He is an auto mechanic who barely went past high school and probably only got into the office because his Grandpa used to be mayor.

On top of that he narrowly survived a recall when he singlehandedly "cancelled" the very popular Arts Festival. No woman Black or white has ever even served on the College Park City Council which is crazy for 2019 and goes to show how "sheep led" the voters are there.

The winner is well qualified and should do a great job, but there was absolutely no reason this should have even gone to a runoff.

George Zimmerman, the neighborhood watch volunteer acquitted of homicide charges in the 2012 fatal shooting of unarmed 17-year-old Trayvon Martin in Sanford, is suing Martin’s family, prosecutors and others involved in the case he claims rested on false evidence, according to a copy of the suit sent to the media Wednesday.
Zimmerman is represented by Larry Klayman, a high-profile legal crusader tied to conservative causes and the founder of Judicial Watch before splitting with the activist group.
The suit in Polk County Circuit Court cites information in a documentary about the case that accuses the Martin family of engineering false testimony, and the director has scheduled a press conference this week in Coral Gables to coincide with a film screening there. The suit seeks $100 million in civil damages, alleging defamation, abuse of civil process and conspiracy. A copy of the suit was distributed to media Wednesday by the movies’ director, Joe Gilbert. The case does not yet appear...

KILLING Muammar Gaddafi

I think that Gaddafi thought America had changed. He would have put up a better fight but he had started to trust America. Therefore some of the weapons he had planned to buy from Russia for protection of his country he changed his mind.
tonydons 2 say why would anybody care? We are still paying taxes to a government that was in on the set up of blacks in Libya. Cynthia M. went over there to curse the media out from America because they were telling the American people lies and was not telling them the so called rebels were over there genocide blacks. The media tried to cover their tracks by saying the so called rebels were killing black mercenaries in Gaddafi army. This was misleading because they were killing blacks for being black. If you was black around there doing that time you was either dead, running for your life, or hiding.

I expect this poll to go overwhelmingly Tyson but I’m putting in my ballot for Wilder mane.

When you got two HOFers (Lewis and Holyfield) who whopped Tyson’s ass on record saying Wilder is the hardest puncher they’ve ever seen, then how can I go against them? Lol
Actress Mo'Nique suing Netflix for race, gender discrimination (filed Nov 14, 2019)

LOS ANGELES — Oscar-winning actress and comedian Mo'Nique sued Netflix on Thursday, accusing the streaming giant of racial and gender discrimination by trying to drastically underpay her for a stand-up special after offering other stars tens of millions of dollars.

The suit filed in Los Angeles County Superior Court accuses Netflix of giving a “biased, discriminatory” offer to Mo'Nique for a one-hour comedy special around November 2017.

In the 39-page filing, Mo’Nique calls out everyone from the top executives of the Netflix management team to highlighting the gender wage gap and lack of diversity in Hollywood.

“Despite Mo’Nique’s extensive résumé and documented history of comedic success, when Netflix presented her with an offer of employment for an exclusive stand-up comedy special, Netflix made a lowball offer that was only a fraction of what Netflix paid other (non-Black female) comedians,” according to the lawsuit, which seeks unspecified damages and was filed on her behalf...

Again Myles Garrett is 100% wrong! However the league is big on player safety, you think Pouncey doesn’t deserve to be suspended for kicking a player IN THE HEAD! He’s getting suspended if he doesn’t then it sends message it’s ok it kick peeps. With that Mason brought this on himself! Garrett was reacting to something and replay shows him grabbing dudes helmet! That’s a fact and Garrett then ripped of his helmet, dude wanted the smoke and couldn’t handle it, now he’s giving interviews acting like the victim.
