During Prohibition, it is said that bars moved their operations underground, as well, making it easier than ever for unsuspecting victims to be shanghaied. Some researchers estimate that as many as 1,500 people a year were shanghaied through Portlandís Underground. Entire scenarios about the practices and experiences of the shanghaied in the tunnels have been created and elaborated on over the years.

The catacombs beneath Portland do exist and the stories almost sound plausible, but is the legend true? What evidence exists to support the allegations that these tunnels were used for shanghaiing? Is there any evidence at all?

You can take a tour aimed at demonstrating the validity of the Shanghai legend and decide for yourself, but so far the evidence does appear to be scanty to say the least. You can imagine that what is there, could have been created any time rather than during the 19th century. The persistent oral history of the legends is somewhat convincing, but remember historians donít doubt shanghaiing took place in port cities of the West, including Portland. What they doubt is the connection between the tunnels, the basements of hotels and bars, and the kidnapping.

There is no historical record or evidence of shanghaiing being practiced in the tunnels from the time period it is said to have taken place. In fact, the earliest mention of a connection between the practice of Shanghaiing and the tunnels dates from the 1970s. Historians assert that even in the event of a massive cover-up effort, it is unlikely there would be no evidence of the practice whatsoever from the era when it was supposedly at its peak.

Evidence may finally be forthcoming, and if it is as convincing as promised, it could settle the question about Portlandís Underground once and for all. Michael P. Jones is the founder of a group offering tours of Portlandís Underground and is a proponent of the Shanghai Tunnel theory. He claims to have obtained undisputable evidence of the practice that will be revealed in a forthcoming book. The evidence supposedly consists of documents, photos and other proof of Shanghai activity.



Until the book is released or other proof surfaces, the legend of Portlandís Shanghai Tunnels remains just that Ė a myth individuals must decide about for themselves. Being able to explore the legend and form your own opinion is of course what makes the Shanghai Tunnels so appealing. If proof finally does come out confirming the story, itís doubtful it will make the legend any more or less interesting than it already is.

One question that will probably come to mind on your visit to Portlandís Tunnels may haunt you more than what you believe you see. If history already confirms that shanghaiing took place in Portland, why on earth wouldnít the tunnels have been used as a means of transporting the kidnapped?

White British students make up more than three-quarters of low achievers in English schools and do worse than children from other ethnic groups with similar economic backgrounds, research reveals.
Boys outnumber girls as low achievers at school by three to two, the study by the Joseph Rowntree Foundation found.
Nearly half of those who leave education with no or limited qualifications are white British males, and white students are more likely than other ethnic groups to do persistently badly at school, the study said.
If they start failing to achieve in primary school they are more likely than others to still be in the lowest categories of achievement at the end of secondary school.
But of course, we managed to build the world and pioneer pretty much every meaningful technological and societal innovation in history, while virtually the whole of Africa is still living in huts, walking up to 10 miles a day just to get water and dying by the millions through Aids and other diseases the western (white) world killed off centuries ago.

Go figure.

So then you're saying it really sucks to be you because you ended up as a failure in life with them being better than you. And you are now left crying on forums about it as your conciliation prize.

But we already knew that.

You don't have to say you are failure Jackson everyone can see it. You have to look after a Black man's kids, and you are really bitter about that. I do feel a bit sorry for you though.

You mean the same Tila Tequila who was beaten up by her black NFL boyfriend. Seriously, nixxas should come with a warning tattooed on their foreheads that says, "Dating me may be hazardous to your health".

So she's had the beating, only the cheating and the STDs to come!

One, i don't look after them. However, I do have enough of an influence for them to know right from wrong and that being a man is about providing for your family. Thankfully, they have me in their lives, otherwise they'd grow up thinking that it's OK to live off other people's money and handouts.

If that were true and this is all Black people teach/learn without racists like you around, how come there are so many Black people who earn and are more successful than you? You are a failure and a loser, but the worst thing is you are a loser who doesn't accept you are the lowest thing that can happen to anyone. You continually rejoice in the fact you think you can show another group as being even lower than you by telling the world about social ills found in all races. You will only teach those kids how to hate half of who they are. You shouldn't even be around kids, because having you around kids with Black blood is like child abuse. What will they grow up to be? People who come on websites with one account pretending to be decent and another to be racist with?

You are a pathetic bastard with no life pretending to be several different people. You clearly have a lot of time on your hands. No one likes you. Not even those who you call your own while they disown you.

The best you can do is get a life and leave Black people alone. Have some shame that you came here pretending to be a non racist, but now you even embarrass some who say they are racist.

I feel sorry for any woman and kids in your life because they have a man with no integrity, moral fibre or even honesty. You are a complete disgrace to all human races. No one even knows what you want here!

Man, you are so right on about Jackson/Jon Sack.

But let's remember he's not married nor have any woman in his pathetic life. He made that shit up as a story troll line. It was to be used as a slap in black people's face which eventually backfired on him...lol

He stated he polks his wife in the azz just to hear her SQUEAL, then laugh!
He belittled the kids with RACIAL SLURS!
And he is a trolling racist from thread to thread where black people are.

He is alone!

The issue with America is all this ignorance an racism. Blacks have a self fulfilling prophecy issue. But that's due to the institutionalized racism and the lack of accountability they grow up with. Asians are racist exclusionary, self important, and can just be passive aggressive jerks. Hurts to be generalized don't it? You can do it with every race watch: Whites are sadistic, genocidal, narcissistic monsters who think they're better than everyone. Imagine for the last 300 years in the country your ancestors were slaves in you were called the N-word, and criminal, and lazy. They treated them, "us" like animals. And that is what "we" became. Imagine if we were treated like humans. rather than a burden on your sophisticated society in which almost all serial killers are white.
