The Final Crack

Updated on February 1, 2012


This is not just any bell with a crack; it’s the Liberty Bell. This Bell was order From Whitehall Foundry in London, November 1751. This Bell rose in notoriety when the Abolitionist decided Slavery should end. After the civil war the bell and the flag was used to heal the nation. In 1776 the final crack developed making the bell null and void.

This Bell was supposed to symbolize freedom, justice and equality for all yet it did not and to this day American has not lived up to its earlier ideology. The abolitionists are given credit for igniting the cry for freedom of the millions of black people held in bondage. Yet, it is often overlooked that the Quakers as early as 1688 register their distaste for the traffic in man bodies. The Quakers were extremely observant, in that they recognized the harm done to the family structure during slavery, at the same time others for the sake of profit turned a blind eye to the devastation that is the root of many problem that plague the Black community at this present time. History books repeat the date of 1619 when a Dutch Man of War unloaded 20 Negars other places spell the landing of this human cargo as Negers. The former spelling is a Spanish word meaning to deny, the latter is more than likely a phonetic spelling used by the Quakers. On the other hand there is another word that scholars quietly overlook and this word is Negus, I will allow the reader to search for its definition. Then it will become crystal clear as to who something positive can be altered into something negative in order to fortify an ideology

The Final Crack

The final Crack appeared in 1776 making the bell unringable. This I believe was and should have been a sign indicating that the Bell should no longer be used to proclaim independence, freedom, justice and equality if it was not inclusive. If you start with the Magna Carta, the Article of Confederation you will find reasons the early colonist claimed they wanted to be free. They fought Great Britain tooth and nail for that freedom. Yet, Crispus Attucks who is rarely mentioned, the first Black man murdered using the slogan “give me liberty or give me death”. He was given the latter. And for the record those responsible were acquitted. With this said I could now use another bell that receives a great recognition for appearing to solve social problem. Actually it creates problem because people who are in a position to use this information refuse to present it in a positive manner. If you bring up poverty, crime, unemployment, poor housing and dismal IQ’s, these people will always point to blacks. They never present the information observed concerning whites along with that observed were blacks are concerned.

Commision Findings

It is a know fact that crime is high in the Black community, Unemployment is high, housing is poor. It is also know that the number one factor that keeps this statistic high is Intuitional Racism. President Lyndon B. Johnson commissioned a group of White people during his administration to find out what lead to the civil unrest during the sixties. This Group concluded and published it finding. None of their finding was earth shaking. It was know that many jobs were held exclusively for whites, housing had clauses indicating that the owner could sell to anyone expect a black person. That the schools Black people attended were inferior to schools that white children attended. Consequently, you are poorly educated, then you are unemployable and finally you are living in a poverty stricken and crime riddle area. Now that you are unemployed you stand around doing absolutely nothing and the police arrest you for vagrancy


In Conclusion it should be said, a white child has never been constantly traumatized in the manner Blacks children have. I have never read of a White church bombed and young white girls killed, I have never read of a white person having to get out of his or her seat for a Black person like Rosa Parks did. I have never read of nine white children escorted to school by the National Guard for fear of their life. I have never read of a White man being shot in his drive way and the police refuse to arrest the Black man responsible. There is a Clause in the 13th Amendment that was an assurance for the powers that be at the time an now that Black people would always be one step away from slavery. I have read the Constitution Only Black are placed legally in such a perpetual strangle hold.
