The Pilgrims didn’t have slaves, idiots.

Have you seen this picture on your Facebook page today? I’m sure by now you have. Well, we’ve got the real story and would like to shed light on the douchebag(s) who sensationalized it.
Please note that Jorge Alves, the father of the girl in the center of the photo, didn’t update the post until after he started the shit storm.
I just want to stop everyone for just one second and say if you shared this photo, because you think they are making this young black girl a slave and think there is anything remotely racist about this picture, you should just off yourself. You are part of the problem.
Now that I’ve basically told all the idiot-fuck, ACTUAL, racists to rid the world of themselves to make it a better, more tolerant, place – let’s get on to what’s really going on here and how those of you without brain cells should have handled seeing this photo.
Contrary to what Alexis here thinks:
-takes a deep breathe-
YEAH ALEXIS! NO ONE SHOULD EVER QUESTION ANYTHING ON THE INTERNET IF SOMEONE IS OFFENDED AND ONLY GETTING A PIECE OF THE STORY. HOW DARE ANYONE WANT CLARIFICATION BEFORE BECOMING ANGRY AND CALLING FOR SOMEONE’S JOB!
No Ryane, you are the reason we still have race problems in America.
Let’s take Monica Cannon-Grant for example. Shes the one that caused this post take off on the Internet. Look at how she expertly race baits in her share of it. Why wouldn’t she? It proves she’s a perpetual victim and that seems to be her favorite past time.
Thats some resume. You could just sum it all up by typing “professionally butthurt.”
If you found yourself confused – you’re not alone. I, too, didn’t understand the context of the picture. I didn’t buy in to the fucking hashtags. I didn’t buy in to the triggered racial response. I didn’t flagrantly rage-share so all the people on my page saw me trying to be tolerant. I took a moment and thought “That’s weird. I wonder what the actual story behind that it is?” You know why? Because I’m actually tolerant.
So, I began looking in to it. I did so knowing DAMN WELL it wasn’t what Jorge Alves, the father that ruined a woman’s career today because he shares an IQ with a bottle of Windex, said it was.
Interesting choice of hat Jorge. You’ll fit right in here.
Seems Jorge, the walking pussy fart, saw this photo shared from his daughter’s classroom and found himself triggered. He didn’t take a moment to ask. He didn’t note that his daughter was smiling. He didn’t even wait for the kid to come home. He just put it out in to the hotbed of social media with an open question and no opinion.
He knew what he was doing. He was thrilled to have the attention. That’s really what this is all about.
I wasn’t until later that Jorge, who has less smarts than a booger stuck to the bottom of a lunch table, decided to speak with his child and ask her what had happened.
Low and behold! There was a logical answer for all of this!
It seems that the folks from Plimouth Plantation came in to do a demonstration on how the Pilgrims, who were Puritans, lived in the old days. I’d like to squeak in that not only did they not own slaves – they were morally against the practice! Oh! Let’s forget to mention they were escaping persecution themselves. They also ONLY survived because they made friends with some brown folks. (Hint: the Native Americans!)
I can’t believe I have to explain this BASIC chunk of history, an entire holiday is based upon , to a group of grown ass adults. Unfuckingreal. I bet every last one of the dolts who shared this picture and found themselves outraged – sit their big asses around a bird on Thanksgiving.
It seems that when the Pilgrims, and pretty much any parent (white or black, rich or poor, free or enslaved) back then, were teaching their children how to walk , attached leading strings to balance the child and prevent them from falling. Back then, it was believed that if a child knocked themselves in the head too much, something that happens to any child toddling, they would get “puddin head.” They believed the trauma would cause the child to become addle-minded. Hell, they even made a special helmet, called a “puddin cap” to prevent it. The orignal idea is still used today – you call them bike helmets.
So, you see folks. Jorge could have used some leading strings back in the day because he is the prime example of a “puddin head.” Actually, we call people like him “shit for brains” in these modern times.
There is nothing wrong with what happened in that classroom. The child bravely volunteered to play the baby being supported by her two pretend parents. What should the teacher, or the woman giving the demonstration, have done?
“Oh, I’m sorry. You can’t volunteer because the color of your skin. We don’t want you to look like a slave and open up Pandora’s Box of butthurt, do we?”
If Jorge’s child was excluded from this presentation because of her race he would have been blowing up social media for the exact same reason.
Any stable human being just saw a little girl laughing and pretending with her classmates. If you saw anything else – YOU’RE the fucking racist.
If the teacher didn’t see this as “culturally insensitive” it’s because she didn’t see a little black girl and think “slave.” She saw her and thought “child.”
It seems like some of the big mouths could have used a teacher like her back in the day…
Qwan, I’m sending your name and information to the stations of the twelve black firefighters who lost their lives on 9/11. I’m also going to tell you that 136 men and 79 women, of those who lost their lives that day, were African American. You’re a disgusting cunt to compare a photo of a happy little girl to the worst tragedy of our nation’s history. You should have been swallowed.
It just kept getting better…
How do we fight things we think are racist? WITH MORE RACISM! If anyone asks for more information – call them a derogatory term, say they don’t understand why they’re racist, and that makes them racist!
Of that doesn’t work – claim this child, who raised her hand and volunteered, was targeted!
They made her kneel! Not because she was pretending to be a 17th century toddler – but because this child didn’t know her history! No one told her she was a queen! Oh.. wait.. you’re telling me they did this with kids of every color and no one said shit them?
So, thanks to Jorge, the elementary school where his daughter attends is being inundated with threats and phone calls. News vans will be parked out front when the kids show up tomorrow. The MSM vultures have already descended upon the comments.
The school was forced to make a public apology, trying to explain, instead of fighting for what was right. They are unable to conduct regular business. That means, because the phone lines are jammed up, an actual concerned parent can’t call and check on the welfare of their child. A child can’t be enrolled in class. A school nurse can’t get a line out to tell a parent their little one is sick.
People are calling for the termination of a teacher that did nothing wrong.
People are threatening a teacher whose only crime was to not think of a child’s skin color before allowing her to raise her hand.
It seems Jorge didn’t like the comments in favor of the teacher – as people were complaining about how he had been deleting their words. It doesn’t matter to him the picture was explained. Jorge has left his post up and probably thinks he has a case against the school district. Getting paid for blaming others is better than real work, right?
Next time a guy like Jorge decides to use his child to push an agenda – fight back instead of caving to the rhetoric. Tell him to shut up, for the sake of his child, because someone might do a search and find out that no one by his name is listed as living in Bridgewater. Hm. Wonder why that is.
