Coard: America's 12 Slaveholding Presidents

In my Freedom’s Journal columns on February 24 and March 3 here in The Philadelphia Tribune, I exposed the lies about President George Washington’s supposed wooden teeth and Thomas Jefferson’s supposed innocently romantic love affair with Sally Hemings.

Washington’s teeth were actually yanked from the mouths of our enslaved ancestors and Jefferson actually raped Sally repeatedly while she was just a child.

In response to both columns, white racists went certifiably crazy (I mean crazier) and denied and yelled and screamed and hollered and insulted. They also trolled on social media. Unfortunately for them, they’re gonna need a straight-jacket after reading this.

This week’s topic is about the twelve United States presidents who enslaved Black men, women, boys, and girls. And before you crazy racists start talking nonsense about those so-called “great” patriots simply being “men of their times,” you need to know that the anti-slavery movement amongst good white folks began in the 1730s and spread throughout the Thirteen Colonies as a result of the abolitionist activities during the First Great Awakening, which was early America’s Christian revival movement. Furthermore, the anti-slavery gospel of the Second Great Awakening was all over the nation from around 1790 through the 1850s.

America is and always has been a Christian country, right? Therefore, if the Christian revivalists weren’t men (and women) of that slaveholding time, why weren’t those twelve presidents who led this Christian country? Read more here:

Democratic group faces backlash after intervening in crowded House primaries


By David Weigel March 2 Email the author

A black Democratic candidate for Congress in Pennsylvania is accusing the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee of undermining his campaign and trying to nudge him out of the race in favor of white candidates.

A Republican super PAC’s poll in Texas has found a Democrat surging after the DCCC published opposition research about her campaign.

Across the country, tensions are boiling over between party activists and the Washington-based committees that usually shape midterm campaigns — with insurgent candidates seeing advantages in attacking the so-called “establishment,” and anticipating little harm when the party comes after them.

In Texas, the Congressional Leadership Fund, a super PAC associated with House Speaker Paul D. Ryan (R-Wis.), found Houston-area congressional candidate Laura Moser moving up after the DCCC published a short, sharp opposition research document on her last week. According to the poll, conducted with 726 “likely Democratic primary voters,” Moser has moved from sixth to second place since January, which would secure her a place in the May runoff — exactly what the DCCC had tried to prevent. Lizzie Fletcher, an attorney endorsed by EMILY’s List, led the field by a wide margin.

4th annual African American Educational Excellence Awards, Wednesday, Feb 28, 2017@ 6-7:30 p.m.

It is that time of year again and In honor of Black History Month the Lehigh Valley My Brother’s Keeper Initiative presents the 4th annual African American Educational Excellence Awards on Wednesday, Feb 28, 2017@ 6-7:30 p.m. The event will be hosted in the Lehigh County Government Center (17 S 7th St, Allentown, PA 18101) Public Hearing Room. Light refreshments will be served.

The purpose of this Award’s event is to recognize African American educators and students who have demonstrated a commitment to educational mentoring and academic achievement.

Normally the Black History month narrative focuses on the story of our struggle and the usual historic figures. Make no mistake those stories and icons are critical to understanding our unique American experience as African Americans. However that is not the only narrative of that experience. Since the founding of our nation until today we have made significant imprints and contributions in the fields of science, medicine, technology and math.
