Politics and history go hand in hand especially when it comes to understanding what is going on in America today.
As I am typing up this blog, Bloomberg is buying the Democrat Party in real time, proving to me that the auction block has never disappeared, it has transformed however the goal is still the same, to shut Negros up and/or to silence us into demanding what is rightful ours pure reparations.
However this blog is about the founder of the Women’s Suffrage Movement and her conversation with Frederick Douglass in who should have more “input” on who has the right to vote.
Due to the demands that Ados is placing on politicians, I’ve been hearing this phrase go around called Oppression Olympics, meaning that others will bring up Immigrants or other minority groups that “just” arrived to America and compare their “poverty or struggle(s)” as if, it is the same as; black Americans’ long time, and well documented; history of oppression.
Here is a short conversation between Susan B and Frederick D. :
“When women, because they are women, are hunted down through the cities of New York, and New Orleans, and when they are dragged from their homes and hung upon a lamp-post.
When their children are torn from their arms and they brains dashed out upon the pavement, when they are objects of insults and outrage at every turn, and when they are in danger of having their homes burnt down over their heads… when their children are not allowed to enter schools; then they will have an urgency to obtain the ballot of EQUAL to our own.”
Susan B (itch). Anthonys’ reply:
…”If you will not give the whole loaf of suffrage to the entire people, give it to the most intelligent first. IF intelligence, justice and morality are to have precedence in the government, let the question of women be brought up first and that of the Negro last”…
Politics and history go hand and hand and we are witnessing today how liberal democrats are willfully ignoring the continue oppression of the United States government on a single group of people Ados…
Other quotes from her: “I will cut off this right arm of mine before I will ever work or demand the ballot for the Negro and not the woman,”
“Those who profess to favor freedom and yet depreciate agitation, are people who want crops without ploughing the ground; they want rain without thunder and lightning; they want the ocean without the roar of its many waters. The struggle may be a moral one, or it may be a physical one, or it may be both. But it must be a struggle. Power concedes nothing without a demand. It never did and it never will.”
