There is an imagined needle right between your eyes. Have a headache yet? LOL

Seems like people that are the most afraid of things, are the most susceptible to superstition and the most likely to succumb to fear.

Be afraid, Harold, they are coming to get you. The Zombie Apocalypse!!!

I don't know much, all I know is that they were the second territory in the New World to free themselves from a colonial power (France, 1804). Then they had a bunch of crazies ruling them, invading their neighbors to the east. That's one of the reasons why the Dominicans hate Haitians. That's why the bloodthirsty Rafael Leonidas Trujillo massacred thousands of them during his nasty regime.

I am blissfully unaware of the movie you mentioned, no doubt due to a deprived childhood or contempt for affirmative movies.

Fear not, I have thousands of other things to keep me busy.

When my offspring watch TV, I offer to help them identify the affirmative action "super-hero".  Finally I spot them as if it were difficult to identify them even when they are not quadroons or octoons, just pedigree unifreckles. .

Poor "offspring", a fate to be related is such that no one should be subjected.

When my son plays guitar, I both encourage and tease him by throwing low value coins as if he were a busker.

If you were paying attention to earlier postings, the Orange Free State and vast swathes of Transvaal were EMPTIED of "true and original inhabitants" by other "true and original inhabitants" during the Mfecane massacres wherein nearly 2m were slaughtered.

I think this is a myth from the land-grabbers. It is so typical of the justifications used by colonialists for their own massacres, as are pretty nearly unique in human history.

The only earlier people truly behaving like the colonialists and wiping out all trace of what went before were the Romans and Genghis Khan. Who had also travelled great distances to the lands of people they considered sub-human.

Really, I think that those who know anything about history would differ. Peoples migration, (including tribal communities in Africa, North and South America), told many a tale of enslavement, and takeover of land.

The problem isn't only just organized people, but has always occurred when humans move about, to find better resources.
