Do you really want to know the real Columbus?

Christopher Columbus is and was one of the architects of white supremacy. A system employed by europeans upon kind, helpful indigenous, black aboriginal people thru out the world. Nation19 Magazine / APDTA

Do you really know who Columbus was? Every second Monday of October in the US is marked by a national holiday called Columbus Day. But surprisingly most don’t know this day was conceived by the Knights of Columbus which is a secret Masonic organization. Also most Americans know nothing about what Christopher Columbus did to the original people of the Americas. So today Nation19 researchers have prepared the uncut pure facts about Mr. Columbus. The facts we uncovered are so bad we ask that you brace yourself while reading them.


Columbus’ first meeting described the original people as beautiful and not warlike, and naive:
“They … brought us parrots and balls of cotton and spears and many other things… They willingly traded everything they owned…  They were well-built, with good bodies and handsome features…. They do not bear arms, and do not know them, for I showed them a sword, they took it by the edge and cut themselves out of ignorance. They have no iron. Their spears are made of cane… . They would make fine servants…. With fifty men we could subjugate them all and make them do whatever we want.”


To paint a different picture of the people, Columbus, who had originally described the Natives as gentle people he wrote:
“(they are) evil and I believe they are from the island of Caribe, and that they eat men.” He also described them as “savage cannibals, with dog-like noses that drink the blood of their victims.”
This made up cannibal story is taught as fact in some of today’s schools in the US.

After his first trip Columbus later returned to Spain leaving behind 39 men who began the process of killing the men and rapping the Native women. When Columbus came back 1,200 (or more) of the native men were killed. Columbus returned with more soldiers, and rape and pillaging became rampant as well as tolerated by Columbus.

Michele de Cuneo journal excerpt (a close friend to Columbus) wrote the first disturbing account of a rape and torture between himself and a Native female sex slave given to him by (Lord Admiral) Christopher Columbus.

“While I was in the boat I captured a very beautiful Carib woman, whom the said Lord Admiral gave to me, and with whom, having taken her into my cabin, she being naked according to their custom, I conceived desire to take pleasure. I wanted to put my desire into execution but she did not want it and treated me with her finger nails in such a manner that I wished I had never begun. But seeing that (to tell you the end of it all), I took a rope and thrashed her well, for which she raised such unheard of screams that you would not have believed your ears.”


Columbus also raped 9 and 10 year old native girls and gave them to his men as sex slaves.
In addition to putting the Natives to work as slaves in his gold mines, Columbus also sold sex slaves to his men—some as young as 9. Columbus and his men also raided villages for sex and sport. Aside from rape Columbus and his men gave the women Syphilis and other sexually transmitted diseases.

In the year 1500, Columbus wrote: “A hundred castellanoes are as easily obtained for a woman as for a farm, and it is very general and there are plenty of dealers who go about looking for girls; those from nine to ten are now in demand.”

Christopher Columbus presents Native Americans to Queen Isabella.

Gold ruled everything around him. 
Upon returning to Spain Columbus told Queen Isabella and King Ferdinand about all the gold. So what did they do? They sent him back with more ships (17 ships) and he was given more men to go steal the gold for Spain.

Columbus forced the Natives to work in gold mines until exhaustion. Those who opposed were beheaded or had their ears cut off.

In the provinces of Cicao all persons over 14 had to supply at least a thimble of gold dust every three months and were given copper necklaces as proof of their compliance. Those who did not fulfill their obligation had their hands cut off, which were tied around their necks while they bled to death—some 10,000 died handless.

In two years’ time, approximately 250,000 original native people on Haiti were dead. Many deaths included mass suicides or intentional poisonings or mothers killing their babies to avoid persecution.

According to Columbus, in a few years before his death, “Gold is the most precious of all commodities; gold constitutes treasure, and he who possesses it has all he needs in the world, as also the means of rescuing souls from purgatory, and restoring them to the enjoyment of paradise.”


Columbus feeding a child to Dogs
Columbus feeding a child to Dogs

Columbus’ men fed Native People to dogs regularly.

In the early years of Columbus’ conquests there were butcher shops throughout the Caribbean where Indian bodies were sold as dog food. There was also a practice known as the montería infernal, the infernal chase, or manhunt, in which Indians were hunted by war-dogs.

These dogs—who also wore armor and had been fed human flesh, were a fierce match for the Indians. Live babies were also fed to these war dogs as sport, sometimes in front of horrified parents.


So from all of us at Nation19 we pray his descendants suffer from every disease on this planet for all the evil he did to those beautiful giving original native people. Lastly,  …F^@! Columbus Day. APDTA!

With the growing epidemic of police deadly force against people of color, community activism has become a necessity.  While community activism is progressing, there is another revolution on the rise that has not yet been televised.

    The NFL pulled the 1993 Super Bowl from Tempe, Arizona, and thousands of conventions and tourists followed suit. It’s estimated the state lost $350 million in revenue before voters reconsidered the referendum in a 1993 vote, re-instating the King holiday.

NWA Tour with Eminem is coming straight outta somewhere in Europe?

Universal chief Donna Langley is trying to reunite N.W.A for a European tour to promote the group’s biopic with Eminem filling in as Eazy E, and sitting in as an honorary member according to the Langley. “We don’t have anything settled yet with everyone’s schedules,” she says. “But we think it can create a lot of buzz.”

After hearing this the crew over here at Nation19 came up with some ways the tour could go down with Eminem added. First thing is N.W.A. (Niggaz Wit Attitudes) may scare some, so we suggest renaming it N.W. E. (Niggaz Wit Eminem).

In order to seamlessly perform the songs that Eazy made famous we think its best to leave his legendary status in place and create new titles of his songs.

  • Instead of the crowd screaming We Want Eazy how about We Want Eminem. 
  • Calling black men Boyz is so 1940’s so Eminem can rework the old school classic into White Boyz in the Hood. 
  • Lastly in hopes of calming the racial tensions between blacks and the police they can replace F@^! the Police with a new tour version with Eminem called…My Uncle’s a Police.  JK…lol

Whitney Houston’s daughter Bobbi Kristina Brown taken off of life support on the same day Michael Jackson was killed.

Whitney Houston’s daughter Bobbi Kristina Brown has been moved to hospice care after months in hospital. Her aunt Pat Houston said Brown’s condition had worsened.

“Despite the great medical care at numerous facilities, Bobbi Kristina Brown’s condition has continued to deteriorate…as of today, she has been moved into hospice care. We thank everyone for their support and prayers. She is in God’s hands now,” the statement read.

What is strange is this was all done on the 6th year anniversary of the murder of Michael Jackson which is today. What is also strange is that both Whitney Houston and her daughter were both found unconscious in a bathtub three years apart.

If you think we are just sensationalizing all this, check this out. On Jerod Brown’s Facebook page the nephew of Bobby Brown he posted that both Houston and his cousin Bobbi Kristina Brown were preyed upon by those who wanted them dead.

“Auntie Whitney was murdered not drowned. That’s a fact. Now the whole bathroom plot shows up again w/ Bobbi Kristina’s situation. C’mon are you people that bold to try to perform this act again on my family. And the public believes whatever these people put in their faces, i mean it is convincing if you’re not on the inside … Soon evidence will be handed over to assist this investigation.”

Jerod Brown suggests that a family member was responsible for Whitney Houston’s death. He also suggests that Bobbi Kristina never trusted that person or persons.

Pat Houston, Whitney Houston’s sister-in-law and manager, was appointed administrator of the trust fund set up for her Bobbi Kristina. Bobbi is also the daughter of the singer Bobby Brown. He, along with Pat Houston, were appointed her co-guardians.

Christians and Muslims unite in Washington DC to demand Justice or Else: #justiceorelse

Less than one week from the horrific slayings of 9 innocent black people at Charlotte AME Church came a solid wall of unity and power. Muslims, Christians and the media assembled at the Historic African Methodist Episcopal Church in Washington DC for the official press conference announcing the 20th Anniversary of the Million March March which will be held on 10-10-2015.

The press conference started with prayer and introductions by freedom fighter Tamika Mallory, Reverend Willie Wilson and Pastor Jamal Bryant of Empowerment Temple who electrified the audience by saying “Christians are going to unite with the Nation of Islam and nobody is going to turn us around.”

The key note speaker, The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan brought the house down with powerful words of separation and economic withdrawal opposed to the message of atonement 20 years ago. Addressing the recent motions to remove the Confederate flags from government buildings The Minister said  “I don’t know what this fuss is about putting the Confederate Flag down, we need to put the American Flag down because we caught just as much hell over that! what the hell is the use paying allegiance to that Flag! (American flag)” He continued by saying “We fought in wars under that flag, then came home and got hung under that flag”. The Minister also said he respects the United States Flag as a independent nation.

Here are some real statistics concerning the conditions in the US today.

-45.3M people in the USA are living in poverty.

-Black unemployment is twice that of whites

-60% of people in prison are Black & Latino

-32% of Native American youth under 18 live in poverty

-28hrs from now police will have murdered someone Black
***Source justiceorelse.com***

Minister Farrakhan stressed that “the real thug don’t rob banks, he robs countries”. He noted that Justice is what black people know because of the brutal mistreatment by whites for more than 460 years. He also explained that the “Or Else” is God.

Charleston County Judge James “Skip” Gosnell also called black people niggers in court

By now you have either heard that Judge James “Skip” Gosnell opened the court proceeding with a personal statement for 21-year-old Dylann Roof, the white terrorist killer of nine innocent black people who were praying in a church. Judge Gosnell’s statement led off by expressing sympathy for the families of the murder victims, but by calling for sympathy for the family of the terrorist white killer.

“We have victims — nine of them. But we also have victims on the other side,” Gosnell said. “Nobody would have ever thrown them into the whirlwind of events that they are being thrown into. We must find it in our heart at some point in time not only to help those that are victims but to also help his family as well.” –  

But did you know this Judge was criticized by the Supreme Court for using racial slurs?

Four kinds of people…
In 2005 Judge Gosnell was officially reprimanded by the South Carolina Supreme Court for using a racial epithet aimed at a black defendant in court. this is what the Judge said:

“There are four kinds of people in this world: black people, white people, red necks, and Niggers,” Gosnell told an African-American defendant at a bond hearing in 2003, according to the state Supreme Court legal record of the case. Click here to read the reprimand. 

In another situation Gosnell was also reprimanded for granting preferential treatment to a fellow judge who had been arrested for DUI, helping the judge be set free from a detention cell before appearing at a legally-required bond hearing. (SMH)

The way Judge Gosnell referred to this killer was like he was talking to his grandson who broke a vase in the living room. This is another example of why we need real Justice or else.

Is Michael Kors a racist? You be the judge.

Is Michael Kors a racist? Here are 3 reasons why you may not want to wear Micheal Kors purses anymore:

Number 1: He doesn’t support Black causes or charities. Why should he? Well the majority of his customers are black women and giving back to the people who made you a millionaire is the right thing to do.

I know he’s a business man and he does’n€™t care about the women buying his purses. Unlike Tommy Hilfiger, who made a conscious effort to connect to hip-hop celebrities and by extension communities of color, Michael Kors has made no attempt to reach a diverse clientele.

I know you’re thinking about the campaign with Halle Berry€, but that was so wack. Buy a teeshirt from him and after you buy his tee, he’s going to feed some children… He’s a Billionaire he doesn’t  need us to buy t-shirts to give. Why not donate from the billions of dollars he makes daily from purses? Or why not feed the children in Brooklyn or other inner cities where the majority of his clientele are?

A Month before he decided to be so charitable A New York Times article pointed out that the Micheal Kors purses which are primarily purchased exclusively by black women are routinely locked up unlike the other brands. I guess he has to protect his bags from all those black women who are spending hundreds of dollars buying them?

Number 2: His designs are not original.

Take a look at the Louis Vuton “€œNeverfull” purse compared to the Michael kors “Jet set travel Tote”€. Look familiar?

And Instead of spending $50,000+ on a pink Hermes Birkin bag made from pink ostrich leather, you can get the bite from Michael Kors Hamilton Large North South Tote.

And look at the Michael Kors, Chanel bite….. Im surprised this guy is not in a lawsuit lol

And Number 3: Michael Kors advertising campaigns generally show no black people or people of color….ever!

He uses White Country Club scenes showing the rich elite in private jets and yachts.. A major contrast to his actual consumers. According to Ebony, Jet, two of the top leading african american publications, he has never advertised in either one.

With Michelle Obama wearing his dress in her official white house picture its no wonder how he got so popular with black women.

Now check out this purse called the inside Job by Nation19. It’s hand made in the United States with durable materials and made by a black designer. It is available by clicking the link and we have a special for Mothers Day. It’s available in Black and White!
