I just got off the phone with my mama. She said that she could pick 100lbs of cotton when she was 9 years old. I can't tell you how many different emotions that went through my body when she said that. She said there was one whole year when they didn't eat anything except for hominy (i think thats how its spelled.) the same stuff that they gave to the horses that was on the land.
In other words they were paid slaves
Bc of this I will do better ... God bless you for sharing rgis
GVille My Hometown
many didn’t have options a choice working in fields, farms hard labor those time I believe many African Americans in America still treated unfairly were hard times still is for many very sad see cries, pain gone though
Slavery never went away they just called it by another name.
Damn, when was this filmed 70’s or 80’s
My family also sharecropped... My Uncles talked about sharecropping..... All poor whites also sharecropped......not just blacks.....It was a way of life all over the South....and YES it was a form of Slavery and do not forget all whites also sharecropped.....unless they were rich or had a trade or lived in citys..... My Grandparents went though the same thing..... They sharecropped ,, hunted, and fished, raised Chickens, had a few cows and pigs...LOOK IT UP don't present it one sided..... My Grandma also drug a cotton sack.... We are white.
May the grace of God be upon the descendants of these people!
The White man is the Devil straight up a friend doesn't Do shit like that to one another. . Fuck them no good. No good at all
I'm white and from Burkesville, Ky! Y'all been lied to. My grandparents were share croppers here. My dad grew up working a rich man's farm for free and I used an outhouse til I was ten (1989). Poor people are poor no matter what color that are. My family is Irish descended and brought here by an English master. The laws in the north forbid Irish from breeding with other whites and said they couldn't own land and animals. My great great grampa's sister was hung cause she tried to lie and marry a German man. These laws were no less real than Jim crow laws and NOBODY ever talks about em. Black college students say I oppressed them! How? I never even finished highschool! If you hate the white man so much... Stop listening to this divisive bs and thinking how he tells you to!
places in the heart, danny glover sally feilds ............reminds me of that movie
13 children, wow, and from what I understand this was the average family
white people didn't want blacks to know nothing they wanted to keep them dumb.
