Black babies used as Alligator food

Black babies were used as alligator food:
Alligator bait, also known as gator bait, is the practice of using little black children as bait to catch alligators. Some say it was done by white men during slave times in Florida and Louisiana and other parts of the American South.
Here is the most complete account of how it was done, coming from the grandson of someone who says he used to do it:
" the slaves who had babies they would steal the babies during the course of the day, some times when their mothers werent watching . some would be infants, some would be a year old, he said some would be toddlers, he said they would grab these children and take them down to the swamp, and leave them in pens like little chicken coops.
They would go down there at night, take these babies and . tie them up, put a rope around their neck and around their torso, around here, and tie it tight.
theyd be screaming. what they were doing would help them to chum the water. He said when they would throw the babies in tied to this rope, he said in a matter of minutes, he said, the alligator were on them. He said the alligator would clamp his jaws on that child, as a matter of fact once he clamped on them he was really swallowed, he said you couldnt see anything but the rope!"

Possibly a tall tale, but there is more:
There is also an account of this practice in Sharon Drapers Copper Sun(2006). It is a work of fiction about a slave girl written for schoolchildren, but the book is meant to be as true to life as possible based on what we know commonly went on back in those days.
In 1923 Time magazine carried this story:
From Chipley, Fla., it was reported that colored babies were being used for alligator bait. The infants are allowed to play in shallow water while expert riflemen watch from concealment nearby. When a saurian approaches his prey, he is shot by the riflemen.
The Chipley Chamber of Commerce said the story was a silly lie, false and absurd. Maybe so, but it was widely reported in the American press, so it was at least believable among White Americans of the time.
Film: The practice has appeared in at least two films:Alligator Bait(1900) and The Gator and the Pickaninny(1900). Two tales of boys used as alligator bait were told in Untamed Fury(1947).
Language: Probably from at least the 1860s up until the 1960s alligator bait was a racial slur among whites for little black children. In Harlem in the 1940s it was applied to blacks of any age from Florida.

Imagery: From at least the 1890s to the 1960s black children were often pictured as alligator bait, particularly on postcards. One man in Florida had a picture framed and put on his wall showing nine naked little black boys with the words Alligator Bait written below:

Remember? None of us were alive back then, how could anyone "remember"?
Christians were fed to Lions.
Spartans were thrown off cliffs.

We can remember, white boy, because you don't have to be born in that time to know history.
Its called HISTORY LESSONS for a reason.
And this lesson reminds us that white people used black infants to feed them to alligators and they made postcards about this subject and found great satisfaction from it.
The same people telling blacks how to raise children were feeding black children to alliagtors.

People making commentary today on ghettos/welfare/raising children were feeding black kids to gators hundreds of years ago? Really?
All "whiteboy" racist banter aside, child sacrifice is nothing new.
It's not like Africans haven't fed other Africans to animals in Afria throughout all time, either, but you don't seem to be too mad at your homefield crowd for their sacrifices, are you?
#7 Sep 9, 2010
Nope, people that molest kids, have crappy families of their own and have a history of abusing, and killing blacks are trying to school black on how to raise children.
#8 Sep 9, 2010
I won't take white parenting 101 because i know how deranged, sociopahic and phony white people and their families are.
Tell other people how to raise their kids, while you screw and destroy your own.
#9 Sep 9, 2010
You filthy whites used black children as alligator food and you want to give parents lessons on raising kids. HA!

Right...since the same whites exist back then?
Meanwhile, ignore all of the African sacrifices/child sacrifices/rapes/mutilations of the homeland, & any of your own religious backstories.
Rational point of view, you've got there.

Yea, we'll stop doing that from now on. The way we DID teach you to raise them apparently isn't working out so well for your race.
#15 Sep 9, 2010
I don't need people that have sex with animals and infants telling me or others how to raise kids, thanks.
#16 Sep 9, 2010
Yes the same whites, same racism same hatred. Typical.
Don't talk to me about rational,
with you people you twist reality and history to relieve yourself of white guilt.
#17 Sep 9, 2010
Sorry, this thread is new, and the author is not me.
But its always been known that whites abused and murdered blacks for joy and fun.
#18 Sep 9, 2010
Seems like I remember a story about Africans believing that sex with animals could cure AIDS.
Google "African Bestiality" or "Black Bestiality" then turn the filter off.
Not to mention all of the Voodoo sacrifices/child sacrifices, not to mention Christian ones (I am just assuming you are one)

AIDS is a biological weapon created by whites.
I don't believe super viruses like this just come from the clear blue sky.
Voodoo is a great faith, and of course you don't practice it whiteboy.
So don't try to give me lessons on a faith you don't practice yourself, you don't know what voodoo is.
I'm sure you got your information from one of those wes craven flicks made for teen white kids.
In fact, don't school me on religion, knowing you white people, you use religion to kill and harm others and you hurt or degrade anyone that doesn't hold your beliefs.

Wes Craven? Most like National Geographic. Let me guess, they can't be trusted, right? Their footage is probably all CGI. Just to make Africans look bad.
I've never seen African men beating women with branches as a rite of passage, either, right?
No African father ever watched his son get eaten by a Lion for his test of courage, either, right?(Great parenting skills)

HIV was created by whites, right.
It had nothing to do with eating monkeys / & a virus jumping species.
