The Golden Age of the ? Enema?!

quote [ Look, it wasn?t enough to have flawless skin, a great wig, and a plump derričre in 16th century France, you needed to have a spotless colon too. Luckily, there were a great abundance of people ready and willing to administer as many ?clysters?, aka enemas, as your heart desired. ]

Gerald Horne with Wilmer Leon on the history of Juneteenth, Texas & the Counter-Revolution of 1836

quote [ Gerald Horne interviewed by Wilmer Leon on Inside The Issues on June 18, 2022, discussing the real and complete history behind Juneteenth, Texas and the Counter Revolution of 1836. ]

I love how every time I dig into the mythology of the creation or major events of the United States, it leads back to rich white people trying to sidestep the abolition of slavery. Really makes a guy feel patriotic.

Oh, also, y'all ever heard of Linconia? Despite schools ignoring it, many of us managed to learn that Lincoln's priority wasn't really freeing slaves, but rather keeping the union together. But even I had no idea, until the last few years, that the most popular version of abolishing slavery was to expel black people from the US.

Out on the Town: Magnus Hirschfeld and Berlin?s Third Sex
