I remember myself saying once that, “I would literally give my left nut for a decent coffee house in Manteca”.
Well, last night I literally did lose my left testicle, and the very next day I found myself in a brand new cafe in Manteca, exactly as I had wished it to be… Fair trade? I like to think so.
(btw totally not being sarcastic, this place is awesome, though I will miss my left nut haha)
Like a cancer, it has become “something evil or malignant that spreads destructively,” with tumors growing in several once-healthy parts of the American body.
Slave gravesite in New York City
“SOMETHING YOUR TOUR GUIDE MIGHT NOT TELL YOU:
The heart of NYC’s Financial District is built on a huge 18th century African Burial Ground. Some 419 Africans were discovered in 1991, a large portion women and children.
The burial ground extends from Broadway Southward under City Hall, and almost to the site of the former World Trade Center. It is believed that there are as many as 20,000 slavery-era Africans in graves under the buildings in Lower Manhattan.
Abolish historical amnesia and ponder for a moment the fact that this financial epicenter of the world is built on slavery, oppression, and death.”
Didn’t check to verify this, but it sounds pretty accurate, unfortunately..
