Early 20th Century US PM

Just ran across a note on early 20th century PM among the blacks of the deep American south. Thought y’all might enjoy it.

It is from "The Seven Laws of Success", by Herbert W. Armstrong, p. 13…

In 1912 the Negroes of southern Mississippi were only 47 years removed from slavery and the end of the American Civil War — and fewer years still from the Carpetbagger debacle (1865-77).

During the first half of that year, though I was not yet twenty, I was timekeeper and paymaster of a southern Mississippi lumber mill. I handled the payroll of some 350 Negro laborers, in addition to other employees.

Education had not come to those adult laborers, though it was starting with their children. Victims of generations of this slavery and the Reconstruction Period that followed, not one of these men could write his own name. Each merely made a cross when I wrote out his name and labeled it: "His mark."

Yet, of all the classes of people I have ever known, these uneducated, happy-go-lucky Negroes of by-gone times appeared to be the happiest. They were free from cares and worries. They bore no burdens of responsibility. They weren’t even worried about civil rights.

They were like the man in the motion picture "Porgy and Bess" who sang: "I got plenty o’ nuthin’, and nuthin’s plenty fo’ me." But they had free air to breathe; the young man had his gal; the married his wife and many "chillun" — old Hub Evans, with "only three" wives, said he had "thutty-six, Suh, an’ hopes t’ make it foty fo’ ah dies."

Islam’s 20 Step Plan to Undermine America?

I found this article from a very credible scholar. This is worth all of us considering.

Twenty-Year Plan: Islam Targets America
by Dr. Anis Shorrosh

When we immigrated from Jerusalem, Jordan* in January, 1967, little did I imagine that Islam would become center-stage in world news. As my sincere interest in the growth of Islam in America intensified, I began to discuss, dialogue, and then debate Muslim leaders throughout the world from an Arab Christian’s view of Islam. So far, I have had the privilege of participating in over 20 debates and discussions on every continent plus T.V. and radio. "Islam Revealed" was released in 1988 and is now in its 8th printing. The True Furqan is now in its third printing in the three years it has been published. It is the only book which challenges the Quran in substance, style, language and contents.

This is my analysis of the Islamic invasion of America, the agenda of Islamists and visible methods to take over America by the year 2020! Will Americans continue to sleep through this invasion as they did when we were attacked on 9/11?

1. Terminate America’s freedom of speech by replacing it with hate crime bills state-wide and nation-wide.

2. Wage a war of words using black leaders like Louis Farrakhan, Rev. Jesse Jackson and other visible religious personalities to promote Islam as the original African-American’s religion while Christianity is for the whites! Strange enough, no one tells the African-Americans that it was the Arab Muslims who captured them and sold them as slaves, neither the fact that in Arabic the word for black and slave is the same, "Abed."

3. Engage the American public in dialogues, discussions, debates in colleges, universities, public libraries, radio, TV, churches and mosques on the virtues of Islam. Proclaim how it is historically another religion like Judaism and Christianity with the same monotheistic faith.

4. Nominate Muslim sympathizers to political office for favorable legislation t…
