Buffalo Soldier Novel - Rescue at Pine Ridge

Keep telling that history: Read the greatest fictionalized 'historical novel', Rescue at Pine Ridge, the first generation of Buffalo Soldiers. The website is: http://www.rescueatpineridge.com The greatest story of Black Military History...5 stars Amazon, and Barnes & Noble. Youtube commercial: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iD66NUKmZPs Rescue at Pine Ridge is the story of the rescue of the famed 7th Cavalry by the 9th Cavalry Buffalo Soldiers. The 7th got their butts in a sling again after the Little Big Horn Massacre, fourteen years later, the day after the Wounded Knee Massacre. If it wasn't for the 9th Buffalo Soldiers, there would of been a second massacre of the 7th Cavalry. This story is about, brutality, compassion, reprisal, bravery, heroism and gallantry. Visit our Alpha Wolf Production website at: http://www.alphawolfprods.com and see our other productions, like Stagecoach Mary, the first Black Woman to deliver mail for the US Postal System in Montana, in the 1890's, spread the word. Peace.

Zulu Time!

Spread the Word, brothers! Shaka Zulu invented zulu time but the idea was stolen by english settlers and dubbed Standardised Time. And if it hadn't been for Eli Whitney, the South would have won the war. Spread the Word!

It’s a mini-serious!!!

DUDE!!! Put the pipe down...

Recently, I wondered "what if there had never been African slavery in America?" I began to ponder the state of current world music, and more specifically the historical impact of American music on modern global styles. I considered that field hollers, gospel, blues, country, jazz, R&B, rock and roll, rap, hip hop, etc. etc. possibly would not exist today and would not have been the force that created much of today's world music.

What???

so you're saying the only thing black people have ever contributed or are capable of is singing and dancing? Thanks, David Duke!
