Byron Crawford remains probably one of the most successful independent bloggers in Missouri i.e. he's not getting paid by Rex Sinquefield.

We may not always agree with Mr. Crawford but we don't deny the power of his writing and the fact that he's not only one of the most influential voices in hip-hop music but also probably the top alt. culture critic in the nation if we're judging by hit counts and e-book sales.

Not bad for a dude who has revealed he's blogging from a small apt. in Missouri somewhere in between box store shifts and trips the worst fast food places in the state.

Here's his take on the 4th:

The Revolutionary War was really fought to protect slavery

Money quote . . .

"According to some guy dressed like Brian Fellows, the real reason the colonies fought for their independence from England is because England was about to abolish slavery, and of course the colonies weren't about to have that.

"They needed slavery to continue for another hundred years or so to rob black people of a few more generations of wealth, to more firmly establish the system of white supremacy that continues unabated to this day.

"If England had won, slavery would have ended way TF back in the 1700s, and who knows where we'd be. Basically, what I'm saying is, fuck this country and fuck the 4th of July. When you celebrate the 4th of July, you're really just celebrating prolonging slavery."

Agree or not (most won't) this is the kind of Internets opinion that won't be shared via mainstream media today . . . Also, while this discourse may be controversial, it's far more uplifting than the WorldStar fight videos that Mr. Crawford often posts.

Celebrate Slavery then. Makes me enjoy the holiday more.

Sorry, the worst president in the modern era is black. I'm tired of white guilt.

If that's why were a country then good for slavery.

Maybe Byron could celebrate the 4th by recognizing that this country allows any opinion no matter how vile or historically incorrect. Or the fact that when considering both domestic and foreign aid, this country has given more to black people than any other country in the world.

Hopefully this asshole will continue to enjoy his existence living between "boxes". Fuck the box stores. He needs to live in a cardboard box !

Imagine this country today if we still had slavery. Ask youself, would Detroit look the way it does today if we still had slavery?

Would East St. Louis look the way it does ?

Would Bannister Mall still be standing ?

Would Indian Springs still be viable ?

The Bear could really give a flying fuck as he has never owned a slave nor has any of his relatives, dating back to the pilgrim days BUT one has to wonder what it would be like.

When 80% of the crime is committed by 13% of the population, something is fucked up.

Welfare, no family unit, little work ethic, flawed gene pools, lacking any moral compass...just a few of the negro flaws.

Sometimes when your not kissing up to some black person that hates your guts, just imagine what it would be like if that person had some work to do, had a job, had a purpose in life other than stealing, jacking, or killing.

Before you black apologist start that racist bullshit, just remember these numbers.....13% of the population is committing 80% of the crime. So this "super blogger can go fuck his self". His thoughts are just that, his, and this bear is not buying it for a second.

While admittedly I don't know my history of the United Kingdom like some, I do know that slavery was abolished in Great Britain in 1833. The seeds of the American Revolution began to germinate ('The goddamn Germans got nothin' to do with it.' - I realize this quote is not germane to the discussion) in the 1760s if not earlier. That's at least a 70 year difference.

While history is always open for new interpretation and conjecture, making things up does nothing but perpetuate ignorance and stupidity.

Don't mistake my post, slavery is a vile immoral institution and cannot be defended under any circumstance.

I know I'm going to SHOCK you with this one! So, this post was so out there, that I actually looked this guy up, and.....YES....he's BLACK! Now, how did you just know that was going to be the case!

Here's how he describes himself:

My government name is Byron Crawford, though many people on the Internets call me Bol, which is Swahili for "The Gulliest One." As you can see, I take no small amount of pride in my African heritage. When I'm not working like a Hebrew slave at a series of soul-crushing minimum wage jobs, I devote most of my free time to doing community outreach with black and Latino youth. Nullus.

I run a website -- perhaps you've heard of it -- called The Mindset of a Champion, in which I educate today's youth on some of the most important issues of our time, including racism, homophobia, healthy living, respect for women, tolerance for religion, and who really runs the music business.

A committed feminist, I donate as much money as I can afford to, and sometimes more, to underprivileged female college students in a small, rural town called Sauget, Illinois. Because as far as I'm concerned, it's one thing to talk about it on the Internet, but it's a whole other thing to put your money where your mouth is. Literally.

I've lived in and around St. Louis, MO my entire life, except for a five year period I spent in Chicken Switch, MO. I hold a bachelor's degree in business administration, with a concentration in marketing, from East Bumblef*ck State University, the Harvard of the Midwest, as well as a certificate in food safety I earned while working at a White Castle.

In addition to rap music, I'm also a big fan of the album New Miserable Experience by the Gin Blossoms. It even says so in that album's Wikipedia entry. (Note that I didn't add that myself.)
So....dear reader, you may be wondering if this guy is a fabricated black alter-ego of our own blogger Tony. The interests and language seem remarkably similar! Racism, homophobia, "respect" for women (while showcasing their figures), music, "the Gulliest one".'ll get a good laugh from this one.....what ad appeared prominently on his website? Why it was SOCKS 101 of course!!!! Coincidence?

Bol kicks ass, you bitches just don't know.

Know your history said...

1772: Somersett's case held that no slave could be forcibly removed from Britain. This case was generally taken at the time to have decided that the condition of slavery did not exist under English law in England and Wales, and emancipated the remaining ten to fourteen thousand slaves or possible slaves in England and Wales, who were mostly domestic servants

The comment is right, England was on the path to outlaw Slavery. The US would not get there for quite some time

The first slave owner in American history was black.

John Casor (surname also recorded as Cazara and Corsala),[1] a servant in Northampton County in the Virginia Colony, in 1655 became the first person of African descent in Britain's Thirteen Colonies to be declared as a slave for life as the result of a civil suit.[2][3] In an earlier case, John Punch was the first man documented as a slave in the Virginia Colony, sentenced to life in servitude for attempting to escape his indenture.[4]

In one of the earliest freedom suits, Casor argued that he was an indentured servant who had been forced by Johnson to serve past his term; he was freed and went to work for Robert Parker as an indentured servant. Johnson sued Parker for Casor's services. In ordering Casor returned to his master Anthony Johnson, a free black, for life, the court both declared Casor a slave and sustained the right of free blacks to own slaves.

Slavery law hardened during Casor's lifetime, making slavery a racial caste widely considered restricted to people of African descent. In 1662, the Virginia colony passed a law incorporating the principle of partus sequitur ventrem, ruling that children of enslaved mothers would be born into slavery, regardless of their father's race or status.[5] This was in contradiction to English common law for English subjects, which based a child's status on that of the father. In 1699 Virginia passed a law deporting all free blacks.

But many new families of free people of color continued to be formed during the colonial years by the close relationships among the working class, between English women, whether indentured servant or free, whose children were born free, and African men, whether indentured servant, free or slave,.[1]

Black guilt????

Some slaveholders were black or had some black ancestry. An African former indentured servant arrived to Virginia in 1621, Anthony Johnson, became one of the earliest documented slave owners in the mainland American colonies when he won a civil suit for ownership of John Casor.[147] In 1830 there were 3,775 such slaveholders in the South who owned 12,760 slaves,[148] with 80% of them located in Louisiana, South Carolina, Virginia, and Maryland. There were economic differences between free blacks of the Upper South and Deep South, with the latter fewer in number, but wealthier and typically of mixed race. Half of the black slaveholders lived in cities rather than the countryside, with most in New Orleans and Charleston. Especially New Orleans had a large, relatively wealthy free black population (gens de couleur) composed of people of mixed race, who had become a third class between whites and enslaved blacks under French and Spanish rule. Relatively few slaveholders were “substantial planters.” Of those who were, most were of mixed race, often endowed by white fathers with some property and social capital.[149] For example, Andrew Durnford of New Orleans was listed as owning 77 slaves.[148] According to Rachel Kranz: “Durnford was known as a stern master who worked his slaves hard and punished them often in his efforts to make his Louisiana sugar plantation a success.”[150] The historians John Hope Franklin and Loren Schweninger wrote:

A large majority of profit-oriented free black slaveholders resided in the Lower South. For the most part, they were persons of mixed racial origin, often women who cohabited or were mistresses of white men, or mulatto men.... Provided land and slaves by whites, they owned farms and plantations, worked their hands in the rice, cotton, and sugar fields, and like their white contemporaries were troubled with runaways.[151] said...

Read the truth, the documented truth about slavery and know the truth.

Or, go to see white guilt movies and buy into the narrative of Hate Whitey. said...

Oprah is lying filth. She wants white people to die and says "Millions" of blacks were Lynched.

About 3500 blacks were lynched at the same time 1500 whites were lynched from 1865 to 1968.

All, were denied due process and all were accused of horrific crimes.

I find the topics of this blog very interesting, but what is even more interesting is the hate and racism that is still strongly prevalent in Kansas City. It seems as though every post lures in racist who have no other purpose than to blame blacks for everything that is wrong with this country. Are they not concerned about the crimes that are growing in rural MO. from meth use? Look at the FBI stats? What about the sexual crimes against kids? Yes, white men...Again, look at the FBI stats. Many of you are so damn blinded by cable news propaganda and such, that you'll never see the truth, or do you really want to. Meth is going to hit harder than crack ever did, and just like the 80's and 90's you'll have to deal with it later. This is 2014. Your kids, nieces and nephews no longer think the way you do. I write for a political blog that gets millions of hits a month, and believe men, this country is leaning progressive and won't ever turn back. Why?, Because of your ignorance.
