Civil Rights Act of 1866? Not 1964?

This short piece is about the first African-American in the Lower-House of Congress, and only the 2nd African-American Congress member overall, and what he had to say at the time just after the Civil War, on whom it was that stood against Black Americans.


Joseph H. Rainey – 1st Black Member of the lower House of Congress 1870-1879

I present the following article as a reminder to all, that the party of Racism has always been the Democrat Party; through all the smokescreen where they talk about some “Big Switch”; though you can’t find any evidence of any major party switch in history, but Democrats do love to trot out any micro-victory they can find along the way.

This short piece is about the first African-American in the Lower-House of Congress, and only the 2nd African-American Congress member overall, and what he had to say at the time just after the Civil War, on whom it was that stood against Black Americans.

Just a bit of history first:

Mr. Joseph Hayne Rainey – South Carolina Congress Member from December, 1870 to March, 1879

Mr. Rainey was born in Georgetown, South Carolina in 1832, to slaves Edward Sr. and Grace Rainey. Edward purchased freedom for himself, his wife and 2 sons, after doing enough side-work as an independent Barber.

Joseph found himself conscripted (forced) in 1861 into service for the Confederate Army, along with other free (oxymoron here) Blacks, but he and his family escaped to St. George’s, Bermuda, and returned to South Carolina in 1866 after the end of the Civil War.

While on St. George’s, Joseph reestablished his Barber business, and his wife owned her own dressmaking business; all on a tiny island with a majority White population.

Joseph was a delegate to South Carolina’s Republican Constitutional Convention in 1868, where the State prepared a new State Constitution during the Reconstruction Era, for rejoining the Union, following the Civil War.

The Civil Rights Act of 1866 was the first U.S. Federal Law to define citizenship and guarantee equal protection under the law. Originally passed the year before, the Bill was vetoed by President Andrew Johnson, but was passed again in 1866 to support the 13th amendment. Johnson again vetoed the Bill, but Congress got its 2/3 majority in both houses, to override the veto.

(Seems a bit of irony that a President Johnson was involved in the 1866; and the 1964 Civil Rights legislation)

Following, is an excerpt from a Floor-Speech Joseph Rainey gave in 1871, in response to a statement made by U.S. House Representative Samuel S. Cox of New York, with some at the expense of Joseph Rainey and other Black South Carolina Representatives.

See how familiar some things appear:

“The remarks made by the gentleman from New York in relation to the colored people of South Carolina escaped my hearing, as I was in the rear of the Hall when they were made, and I did not know that any utterance of that kind had emanated from him. I have always entertained a high regard for the gentleman from New York, because I believed him to be a useful member of the House. He is a gentleman of talent and of fine education, and I have thought heretofore that he would certainly be charitable toward a race of people who have never enjoyed the same advantages that he has. If the colored people of South Carolina had been accorded the same advantages—if they had had the same wealth and surroundings which the gentleman from New York has had, they would have shown to this nation that their color was no obstacle to their holding positions of trust, political or otherwise. Not having had these advantages, we cannot at the present time compete with the favored race of this country; but perhaps if our lives are spared, and if the gentleman from New York and other gentlemen on that side of the House will only accord to us right and justice, we shall show to them that we can be useful, intelligent citizens of this country. But if they will continue to proscribe us, if they will continue to cultivate prejudice against us; if they will continue to decry the Negro and crush him under foot, then you cannot expect the Negro to rise while the Democrats are trampling upon him and his rights. We ask you, sir, to do by the Negro as you ought to do by him in justice.

If the Democrats are such staunch friends of the Negro, why is it that when propositions are offered here and elsewhere looking to the elevation of the colored race, and the extension of right and justice to them, do the Democrats array themselves in unbroken phalanx, and vote against every such measure? You, gentlemen of that side of the House, have voted against all the recent amendments of the Constitution, and the laws enforcing the same. Why did you do it? I answer, because those measures had a tendency to give to the poor Negro his just rights, and because they proposed to knock off his shackles and give him freedom of speech, freedom of action, and the opportunity of education, that he might elevate himself to the dignity of manhood.

Now you come to us and say that you are our best friends. We would that we could look upon you as such. We would that your votes as recorded in the Globe from day to day could only demonstrate it. But your votes, your actions, and the constant cultivation of your cherished prejudices prove to the Negroes of the entire country that the Democrats are in opposition to them, and if they [the Democrats] could have sway our race would have no foothold here.

Now, sir, I have not time to vindicate fully the course of action of the colored people of South Carolina. We are certainly in the majority there; I admit that we are as two to one. Sir, I ask this House, I ask the country, I ask white men, I ask Democrats, I ask Republicans whether the Negroes have presumed to take improper advantage of the majority they hold in that State by disregarding the interest of the minority? They have not. Our convention which met in 1868, and in which the Negroes were in a large majority, did not pass any proscriptive or disfranchising acts, but adopted a liberal constitution, securing alike equal rights to all citizens, white and black, male and female, as far as possible. Mark you, we did not discriminate, although we had a majority. Our constitution towers up in its majesty with provisions for equal protection of all classes and citizens. Notwithstanding our majority there, we have never attempted to deprive any man in that State of the rights and immunities to which he is entitled under the Constitution of this Government. You cannot point me to a single act passed by our Legislature, at any time, which had a tendency to reflect upon or oppress any white citizen of South Carolina. You cannot show me one enactment by which the majority in our State have undertaken to crush the white men because the latter are in a minority.

I say to you, gentlemen of the Democratic party, that I want you to deal justly with the people composing my race. I am here representing a Republican constituency made up of white and colored men. I say to you deal with us justly; be charitable toward us. An opportunity will soon present itself when we can test whether you on that side of the House are the best friends of the oppressed and ill-treated Negro race. When the civil rights bill comes before you, when that bill comes up upon its merits asking you to give civil rights of the Negro, I will then see who are our best friends on that side of the House.

I will say to the gentleman from New York that I am sorry I am constrained to make these remarks. I wish to say to him that I do not mind what he may have said against the Negroes of South Carolina. Neither his friendship nor his enmity will change the sentiment of the loyal men of that State.

We are determined to stand by this Government. We are determined to use judiciously and wisely the prerogative conferred upon us by the Republican party. The democratic party may woo us, they may court us and try to get us to worship at their shrine, but I will tell the gentleman that we are republicans by instinct, and we will be Republicans so long as God will allow our proper senses to hold sway over us”

Sounds like the good ole Democrats were already bribing and blackmailing Blacks.

I found this to be an interesting piece of history.

God Bless You, and God Bless America

White-Phobia

I really need somebody to explain this shit, and I want Trump to address this problem. I take it that seriously

The subject for my next Youtube Podcast on The R.A.F.O.N. Report.

MN. Representative Ilhan Omar

Congress-Woman Ms. Omar says (About America) ” “is not going to be the country of white people.”


I really need somebody to explain this shit, and I want Trump to address this problem. I take it that seriously

I believe I’m genuinely triggered about this……………………..

I want to know why OPEN and BLATANT racism against Whites is legal in this country

I want to know why it’s allowed, encouraged, and promoted

This isn’t about Ms. Omar; she is merely an example I chose

This isn’t about her being Black

This isn’t about her having breasts or a vagina

This isn’t about her being a female; if that’s her preferred pronoun 😉

This isn’t about her being from Somalia

On the streets of New York City (And other places around the country), Black Hebrew Israelites are LEGALLY allowed to stand on public sidewalks and hurl their racism at Whites and even Asians

Universities now offer courses promoting racism towards Whites; with countless faculty, staff, etc… promoting racism against Whites

Entities under the umbrella of Black Lives Matter, openly admit they want revenge against the Whites, for slavery and other White-Power BULLSHIT

Countless Hispanic agencies, entities, and personas, proudly and loudly engage in racism against Whites on a daily basis, all over this country

Newspapers, Books, Movies, Songs, Billboards, Theatrical Plays, etc…. all produce anti-White rhetoric

Multitudes of State Government Employees are openly racist against Whites

Multitudes of Muslims in America (Including Ms. Omar specifically) openly spew racist venom against Whites

Now it’s being shouted from our Congressional Representatives, on a much grander scale than ever before; especially with the Left’s newest spokes-people: Omar, Talib, Cortez, etc…

It’s tolerated, protected; and even defended by countless law enforcement agencies; and government municipalities across America

Even businesses across the country are engaging in open racist policies towards Whites

Then we have the “Honorable” “Reverend”, Louis Farrakhan, who openly says the Whites are the Devil and deserve to be slaughtered

We can add Reverends Jessie Jackson and Al (Not-So) Sharpton to that list as well

Racism will never end in this world, but this Anti-White breed is some serious shit that’s gonna hit the fan eventually.

For all their bluster about true instances of White Racism, their Anti-White rhetoric is awakening a monster they do not want to be released; and another sad aspect of this is that these people don’t even realize just how much they’re being used and manipulated, by some of the very people that want a majority of us all dead

Anti-White Racism is only one tool in the box for those who specialize in the Plantation Politic’s agenda of the Elite’s Divide & Conquer scheme, and it’s awakening an entity that was “largely” asleep, for many decades.

As a student of world history; and even though racism will always exist, this “round” is not going to end well.

Utopian Socialism

Socialism is merely an economic vehicle used on the road to Communism; Karl Marx knew this, as did Comrades Vladimir Lenin, Joseph Stalin, Hugo Chavez, and even Fidel Castro.

The “Living Wage” argument will never disappear because needs grow as prices rise.


The move towards a $15 minimum wage is another creation of big business, as an attack to crush the middle class and cripple those below middle class.


Giants such as Coca-Cola, Pepsi, ABC, NBC, Merk, etc… can afford to pay a $15 per hour minimum wage, but neither the middle class struggling Mom & Pop, nor your average “Start-Up” can afford such starting wages.

This is not an attack on or against Capitalism; though it is believed to be just that by many on the Political Left, but is something which produces the designed results in further consolidation of power, control and wealth, for the fat-cats.

This rush towards a ridiculous notion that higher minimum wages will get more people into a “living wage” bracket or lifestyle, is simply preposterous to even consider.

All one has to do is look around the country to see what is happening in places such as Seattle, San Francisco, and even New York City, where the implementation of this ever-increasing path towards $15 per hour, hurts employees with cuts in hours and benefits available, prices of all goods and services being increased by the “Owners’, to compensate their new payroll figures, and just how many businesses are simply downsizing, closing their doors, or moving out of state.

The political move by the Left is under the delusion that the “owners” having to pay these increased wages, somehow helps towards leveling the playing field between the owner, management, and “Labor”. (I’m suddenly reminded of the bourgeoisie and proletariat arguments of Karl Marx)

Some even foolishly believing that this increase in the minimum wage somehow punishes the big boys.

All they do is raise the costs for their products and/or services, and it’s still the little guy/consumer, that suffers.

This tactic is anything but new in society.

Communism existed long before anyone coined this term/word, as is true of any and all forms of Leftist ideology with respect to governments, and the people they govern.

Socialism is merely an economic vehicle used on the road to Communism; Karl Marx knew this, as did Comrades Vladimir Lenin, Joseph Stalin, Hugo Chavez, and even Fidel Castro.

The Left almost universally presents us with the promise of a more utopian existence for all but this is merely a tactic and a ploy, to gain the support of the fools being used, to further enrich their controllers, widening the gap even further between the haves and the have-nots.

In even the best imagined utopian societies, there will always be the few at the top, who are hoarding-off the best and most for themselves, while distributing the scraps amongst the subservient peasants, and killing off those that actively resist.

The Socialist Utopia does not exist, except in the dreams of fools, and political plans of those who know such methods only benefit those in power.

Socialism, Communism, Marxism, Progressivism, etc… are not only all Leftist and Liberal, but they are also Statist at their core.

This is merely one more reflection of the R.A.F.O.N. at work, throughout history.

Hard to believe but it’s already been a year since we launched this Website. 29 articles; and we recently added our youtube channel, with 6 videos to date.

How far we can go is up to all of us.

According to godaddy, the costs for renewing this domain are as follows

$28.16 for 1 year

$56.32 for 2 years

$84.48 for 3 years

$140.80 for 5 years

The Thermometer shows our progress to date.

From a recent book sale I made, we have contributed the 1st $19.00 to this effort, but we must renew NO LATER than May 4th

So long we we can raise enough for one year, that gives us another year to build this up.

Don’t forget to sign up as a content-provider under “contributor” on our task-bar. You can submit articles for consideration, or just join in on the conversations (BLOG) under each article………or start one!
