The greatest flowering and most militant expression of the Black-Indian alliance took place in Florida. Enslaved Africans fled bondage in Georgia, Mississippi, Alabama and the Carolinas to make a new life on the penninsula claimed by Spain. Around the time of the American Revolution, Africans welcomed the Seminoles, a break-away segment of the Creek nation, to the penninsula and taught them rice cultivation methods they had learned in Sierra Leone and Senegambia. On this basis the two peoples formed an agricultural and military alliance that defeated repeated invasions by U.S. slaveholding posses.

Finally, in 1819, to end a perceived threat by U.S. slave-holders, the United States purchased Florida. By this time African-run plantations stretched for fifty miles along Florida's fertile Appalachicola river valley, and included herds of cattle and horses. In Florida the Red and Black Seminoles fought the United States Army, Navy and Marines to a standstill for four decades, and some Seminoles never surrendered. In three Seminole Wars the United States armed forces lost more than 1500 U.S. soldiers, spent more than $40,000,000 and at times Seminole armed forces tied up half of the U.S. Army on the peninsula. "This, you may be assured," said U.S. General Thomas Jesup in l837, "is a Negro, not an Indian war." It was both.

Misdirection -- You are trying desperately to pin the acts of a few onto the entire race. Not going to happen. The world is now aware of the tactics you white guys use to guide negative beliefs about African Americans. Spin Spin little invisible man.

It is not hidden. You guys are all the same. You will never concede defeat or admit not knowing something. School and your parents did you a disservice. They should have said NO to you more often and they should have told you you would not melt if you ask for clarity instead of begging an answer.

Boogie down, to those that know, is The Bronx. in New York. Not hidden, but in plain sight.
