caliberlee #memorialday #memorialweekend One of the most disturbing articles about using babies as alligator bait was reprinted in numerous United States papers from 1888 until 1911. This article refers to an advertisement in Ceylon (modern day Sri Lanka) newspapers: "Babies Wanted for Crocodile Bait. Will be Returned Alive." The whole process is described in detail and painted as a harmless way for Ceylonese mothers to earn a "small consideration" for the use of their "dark brown infants with curling toes" to attract crocodiles ("Babies for Crocodile"). In July 1968, the Los Angeles Times ran an article about the great fireballer Bob Gibson. Gibson talked about the struggle to get respect as a baseball player and as a man. He recounted a story from his rookie year in Columbus, Georgia about a fan who called him "alligator bait". Gibson laughed it off, but then he was told by some local folk that "Negro youngsters" were actually used in baiting alligators. "That's where Negroes stood in Columbus" said Gibson, and went on to talk about the struggles he was currently enduring . One interesting aspect of Bob Gibson's story is the response from Cecil Darby, the sports editor of the Columbus, Ga. Ledger.
While actual incidents likely were rare, images and objects showing caricatured African American children as alligator bait were widespread. An article in the January 28, 1900 issue of the Washington Times reflected on the "Phenomenal success of a photograph styled 'Alligator Bait'." It told how the photograph got its name, its popularity from "coast to coast", and reported that "sales from this one negative have reached nearly $5,000" ("Branson, of Knoxville"). Rp @48laws757

caliberlee The queen's staircase, 65 steps (count will be 64 because one is covered by asphalt pavement) in Nassau #Bahamas. Limestone rock hand built by 600 slaves over a period of 16 years with chisel and hammer. When I say things were built by our blood sweat and tears it's real. I vacationed touched and walked on rocks carved by stolen people and named after the person who dictates the theft... but still we rise. Strong roots don't die. #melanin #sunwarrior #sunarmy #sunsoldier 3w

caliberlee Talented: musical genius whom made an album where he pretty much played every single instrument on the album.
Flamboyant: fashion game is untouchable.
Power Status: ultimate, changed his name to a symbol (how do you call him) dated Carmen Electra named her and she acquired fame as Carmen electra. Had two women (diamond & pear) who spoke for him because he didn't feel like talking to people. Went to a hotel in Manhattan and they had to design the suite how he wanted it including color, after he left they now rent that suit as the "prince" suite.
