A documentary about Leone Jacovacci, a black Italian boxer who discredited 20th century Italian dictator Benito Mussolini’s racist ideology by winning a European boxing title is making waves in Italy and abroad, reports Variety. “The Duce’s Boxer” tells the story of Jacovacci, an African Italian born in the Congo who won the 1928 European middleweight title by beating Mario Bosisio, a white Italian boxer supported by the country’s Fascist leaders, in front of 40,000 fans in Rome’s National Stadium.

Mussolini, outraged, then ordered Jacovacci and his achievement erased from Italy’s history books. But 89 years later, Jacovacci’s story has been resurrected. “The Duce’s Boxer” premieres today (March 21) in 25 Italian cities to mark the U.N. International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination.

Based on the book “Black Roman” by Italian sociologist Mauro Valeri

Timothy Caughman: Victim of Domestic Terrorism


Rest in Peace Timothy Caughman. This is the face of Domestic Terrorism and the real true face of America. Some will mourn his passing but most will just shrug their shoulders at the death of yet another Black Man murdered by a KKK Trump disciple. The inbred evil and wickedness in America sounds the death-knell of the USA. America’s fall shall come from within not from outside forces.

Random Ramblings; Myriad Musings

This is Timothy Caughman, the 66-year-old Black man who was brutally murdered in New York City on 20 March. His killer, James Harris Jackson, is a self-described “white supremacist” who harbored intense hatred for Black people in general, but Black men in particular. He turned himself in to the local authorities in the wee hours of 22 March, after stabbing Mr. Caughman multiple times with a 24-inch, double-edged sword:

On his Twitter page, 66-year-old Timothy Caughman described himself as a “can and bottle recycler” as well as an “autograph collector.” He hoped to visit California one day and expressed his deep love for this country on Election Day by standing in line and taking part in the democratic process. However, Caughman lived in a country where everyone did not love him back. Since the election of Donald Trump as president, the nation has seen a rise in hate…

The Dying Cries of Men… | a cooking pot and twisted tales


https://acookingpotandtwistedtales.com/2017/03/22/the-dying-cries-of-men/

Jacqueline who is a Queen Poetic Genius captures the heart, soul, and mind of an old soldier recounting the hurt pain and sorrow of war.

The voices of warriors are the same everywhere.  Will we heed the voices of old soldiers or will their agonies of battles past succumb to false future glories.
