In the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, 300,000 people or more became slaves there in all but name. Urchins were swept up from London's streets to labour in the tobacco fields, brothels were raided to provide 'breeders' for Virginia and hopeful migrants were duped into signing as indentured servants, unaware they would become chattels who could be bought, sold and gambled away. Drawing on letters, diaries, and court and government archives, the authors demonstrate that the brutalities associated with black slavery alone were perpetrated on whites throughout British rule. The trade ended with American independence but the British still tried to sell convicts in their former colonies, which prompted one of the most audacious plots in Anglo-American history. This is a saga of exploitation and cruelty spanning 170 years that has been submerged under the overwhelming memory of black slavery.

White Cargo is the forgotten story of the thousands of Britons who lived and died in bondage in Britain's American colonies. In the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, more than 300,000 white people were shipped to America as slaves. Urchins were swept up from London's streets to labor in the tobacco fields, where life expectancy was no more than two years. Brothels were raided to provide "breeders" for Virginia. Hopeful migrants were duped into signing as indentured servants, unaware they would become personal property who could be bought, sold, and even gambled away. Transported convicts were paraded for sale like livestock. Drawing on letters crying for help, diaries, and court and government archives, Don Jordan and Michael Walsh demonstrate that the brutalities usually associated with black slavery alone were perpetrated on whites throughout British rule. The trade ended with American independence, but the British still tried to sell convicts in their former colonies, which prompted one of the most audacious plots in Anglo-American history. This is a saga of exploration and cruelty spanning 170 years that has been submerged under the overwhelming memory of black slavery. White Cargo brings the brutal, uncomfortable story to the surface.

What kind of future would we like? Freedom, security, prosperity, lush nature, and meaningful lives for all? Or a tech defined world where a handful of people own the algorithms and do not care about the planet and the well-being of the many? As humans, we live in several systems: some are natural, some are human-made and cultural. The systems of nature we cannot escape or change, such as the forces of gravity and electromagnetism; the systems made by humans we can design as we please, such as the economy and the internet. Libertism is about knowing the difference and choosing what to do with it. How do we harvest the most sustainable prosperity from the natural systems without ruining them, and how do we design the most sustainable cultural systems so that everybody can enjoy a prosperous and meaningful life in freedom and peace?

HEAR YE, HEAR YE, HEAR YE !!! From all Rooftops & Skyscrapers all around the world: I hold these truths to be self-evident that all the Virginia Colonial Records I read (London Court Records & the Virginia Company of London) were used to reflect the hard facts exposed in the eBooks “Indentured Servitude Unchained” and "Novemberteenth / Aprilteenth" to the best of my abilities for expression, and this paper is its supplement. Whereas, this document serves as the approval from Our Billions of Celestial Ancestors who came before Us to make these earth-shaking announcements to the World. Whereas, the Expose' of these hidden facts is America's "Worst kept Secret" for 400 years. Whereas, the Virginia Colonial Court and Company (Virginia Company of London) Records validate the authenticity of these events/documents for: •Documenting the 1st 12-year period of the Virginia Colony, 1607 to 1619 AD, and the next 4 years, 1620 to 1624. •Understanding why and how the idea of a System for Indentured Servitude was conceived and officially installed in the Virginia Colony that commenced in 1619 AD; and •Understanding who the intended Indentured Servant really was during this 1st 12-year period. Whereas, other Professionals have measured and assessed such authentic evidence and I rendered their conclusions to the facts reflected in this research paper/eBook: “In Denial: White Slavery in the Virginia Colony, 1607 to 1619 + Reasonable Cause for Reparations for Descendants of African Slaves;” Whereas, within this 1st 12-year period there comprised only White (European) Slaves of not more than 2,000 colonists. Whereas, based upon these noted Records, You (especially our Younger Generations), now, are Highly Justified to CLAIM that the majority years of the 1st 12-period of the Virginia Colony indulged itself with the practice of Slavery upon its inhabitants using harsh measures, Nine-Consecutive Years of Slavery while Three-Years were consumed with Consistent Starvation. Whereas, the Survivors' Testimonial Document of 1624 AD is archived in the Colonial Records of Virginia and set forth herein this paper. Whereas, the Survivors' Freedom Document dated November 1618 (Emancipation Proclamation if you will), officially called "Instructions to George Yeardley," declared absolute freedom to all the Survivors (roughly 400 inhabitants) has been hidden from the history books of American Public Education for over 400 years this past November 2018; this document was delivered to the Survivors of this Slave Colony in April 1619 AD. Whereas, it be known that the next 4 years, 1620 to 1624 AD, authenticated the beginning of a structured Institution/System for Indentured Servitude, distribution of acreage [Reparations], and why and how the Virginia Company of London was dissolved. Whereas, false narratives were promoted about the Virginia Colony and King James censored the Virginia Company of London Records. Whereas, the continued denial of Reparations to Descendants of African Slaves has hit the mark of 156 years to date. Whereas, the eBooks “Indentured Servitude Unchained” and “Novemberteenth / Aprilteenth” and/or this research paper contains separately almost 90 questions for one to use for assignments to pursue the answers contained; and Whereas, a Script for a Screenplay has been prepared for a movie/film of this 1st 12-year period of the Virginia Colony with a sneak preview of its timeline contained in this research paper. Now, Therefore, I, George Rainey, Jr. (Elder) do proclaim the aforementioned statements of the authenticity of factual events/documents stand, henceforth, certified because such facts were retrieved from the Colonial Records of Virginia.

Racism and discrimination have choked economic opportunity for African Americans at nearly every turn. At several historic moments, the trajectory of racial inequality could have been altered dramatically. But neither Reconstruction nor the New Deal nor the civil rights struggle led to an economically just and fair nation. Today, systematic inequality persists in the form of housing discrimination, unequal education, police brutality, mass incarceration, employment discrimination, and massive wealth and opportunity gaps. Economic data indicates that for every dollar the average white household holds in wealth the average black household possesses a mere ten cents. This compelling and sharply argued book addresses economic injustices head-on and make the most comprehensive case to date for economic reparations for U.S. descendants of slavery. Using innovative methods that link monetary values to historical wrongs, William Darity Jr. and A. Kirsten Mullen assess the literal and figurative costs of justice denied in the 155 years since the end of the Civil War and offer a detailed roadmap for an effective reparations program, including a substantial payment to each documented U.S. black descendant of slavery. This new edition features a new foreword addressing the latest developments on the local, state, and federal level and considering current prospects for a comprehensive reparations program.

Leading scholars and policymakers explore how history influences foreign policy and offer insights on how the study of the past can more usefully serve the present. History, with its insights, analogies, and narratives, is central to the ways that the United States interacts with the world. Historians and policymakers, however, rarely engage one another as effectively or fruitfully as they might. This book bridges that divide, bringing together leading scholars and policymakers to address the essential questions surrounding the history-policy relationship including Mark Lawrence on the numerous, and often contradictory, historical lessons that American observers have drawn from the Vietnam War; H. W. Brands on the role of analogies in U.S. policy during the Persian Gulf crisis and war of 1990–91; and Jeremi Suri on Henry Kissinger's powerful use of history.

This edited collection explores the complexities of Irish involvement in empire. Despite complaining regularly of treatment as a colony by England, Ireland nevertheless played a significant part in Britain’s imperialism, from its formative period in the late eighteenth century through to the decolonizing years of the early twentieth century. Framed by two key events of world history, the American Revolution and Indian Independence, this book examines Irish involvement in empire in several interlinked sections: through issues of migration and inhabitation; through literary and historical representations of empire; through Irish support for imperialism and involvement with resistance movements abroad; and through Irish participation in the extensive and intricate networks of empire. Informed by recent historiographical and theoretical perspectives, and including several detailed archival investigations, this volume offers an interdisciplinary and evolving view of a burgeoning field of research and will be of interest to scholars of Irish studies, imperial and postcolonial studies, history and literature.

A New York Times bestseller: “This terrific new book . . . [explores] the ‘notion of whiteness,’ an idea as dangerous as it is seductive.”—Boston Globe Telling perhaps the most important forgotten story in American history, eminent historian Nell Irvin Painter guides us through more than two thousand years of Western civilization, illuminating not only the invention of race but also the frequent praise of “whiteness” for economic, scientific, and political ends. A story filled with towering historical figures, The History of White People closes a huge gap in literature that has long focused on the non-white and forcefully reminds us that the concept of “race” is an all-too-human invention whose meaning, importance, and reality have changed as it has been driven by a long and rich history of events.
