Wow! Knoxville, Tennesse is hot! While the days here have been in the mid to low 70s and the nights in the mid 50s, the mild weather doesn’t reflect the temperatures of its residents who are split along racial lines behind the illegal arrests and charges against the Knoxville5, who are black, and the deaths of two white college students from semi affluent families.
It’s not quite Jena, La.; but, in terms of the perversions taking place by the criminal justice system here, it’s close.
While the local media portray the student’s deaths as a carjacking gone wrong, a long running Ghetto Bragging Rights investigation finds the two students, Channon Christian and Christopher Newsom, were most likely buying drugs and soliciting sex from black male thug-prostitutes.
While many questions remain unanswered, like: how many times was Channon’s ATM card used throughout the course of the night and what, if any, type of footage is seen on ATM camaras and why wasn’t Eric Boyd, the first of the Knox5 to face an illegal trial and be illegally convicted, allowed to read a statement he prepared before the court, the issue of whether the Christian family profited directly or indirectly from the African American Slave Trade has surfaced.
KNOXVILLE’S SAVAGE SLAVE HISTORY:
Knoxville and East Tennessee held a unique position in the Confederacy. Although Tennessee voted to join the Confederacy, East Tennessee remained throughout the war staunchly Unionist. To complicate matters, Knoxville was a blend of Union and Confederate supporters.
This combination would ensure that Knoxville and East Tennessee saw their share of political and military fighting during the Civil War.
Knoxville was the home of one of the most intense Union supporters, William Brownlow, editor of the Knoxville Whig newspaper. Even after Tennessee voted to join the Confederacy, Brownlow kept up his attack on the Confederacy and its leaders. Finally the Confederates imprisoned Brownlow, later forcing him into exile outside of Tennessee where he lectured and wrote to further the cause of the Union. After the war he was elected governor of Tennessee. Civil War in Knoxville

To the fore, it is my understanding the GBR is currently making efforts to contact the Christian family to ask them to disclose whether they owned African slaves during the Slave Trade or if their families profited indirectly from it.
