    I just watched Not On This Earth. Fascinating. Jews, hiding from the Nazi's for OVER A YEAR in a cave in the Ukraine. Imagine. 400+ days down there.

    I can't help but compare what they endured compared todays race riots and mindset of many blacks. That might sound racist but oh well. But..I digress.

    If you like history documentaries/movies...check it out.

    It's a true history and well documented. But the comparison to blacks was, well, weird, imo.

    On that note, history fans will cream their jeans at this site called Greater History.

    They have super extensive and of the finest quality videos in playlistists on almost any conceivable historical stheme or major subject.

    I literally was taken aback by the breadth and depth of their archives and its not some old slow ass dusty and under funded, under utilized site.

    It's a YouTube Channel!!!

    Awesome!

    Vist it and you will be shocked.

    Pleasantly so!

    Here is the link.

    Thank you Mojo! I have it in my favs now.

    Another really good one I found on netflix some time ago is called God On Trial. Some death camp jews put God on trial just a day or so before being gassed..and they knew they were soon to die. So they performed the trial in their camp. Just...wow.

    Yeah. I know. But I did think of the comparisons of the GIMME GIMME YOU OWE US crap versus what Jews went thru for so many GENERATIONS. Dig what I am saying? GENERATIONS. And you don't see Jews looting and screaming and killing over what they endured for thousands of years..do ya?

    What produced the attitudes and behaviors of US Blacks hasn't to do as much with the degree of inhumanity they faced, but the type of inhumanity.

    I'm postulating the idea that different living conditions will result in different types of behavior traits.

    You know that the gender of embryonic alligators is determined by the temperature of the mound where the mother deposits and tends her eggs.

    A few degrees warmer and the eggs become males. A few degrees cooler they all become females. At temperatures in between they produce baby alligators.of both sexes.

    Had Blacks been faced with what the Jews faced in the Holocaust maybe Blacks might exhibit the same kinds of attitudes as current day Jews...or as the descendants of those who survived the death camp ordeal.

    Had Jews been subject to the same cultural admonitions and prohibitions and by degree, lesser, inhumanities to them based on their living as slaves as Blacks did and endured the break up of their traditionally strong nuclear family as Blacks did, and were unable to assimilate into the larger society because their skin color branded them, unlike Jews who could and often did pass as gentiles, who's to say how Jews today might have turned out?

    Awesome! Just checked it out. Looks fascinating

    For audio podcasts on history, check out Dan Carlins Hardcore History. His series called The Wrath of the Khans is incredible.
