Did you know that George Washington Carver, the master scientist, was physically castrated at a very young ageby his White plantation owners?Back male slaves that were assigned to work in their master’s house were often castrated. Although it was the white slave owner that were raping their black slaves (males, females and children ) they —with an absurd degree of hypocrisy —believed that black males were sexual deviant that could not control their sexual urges.The slave owners therefor believe that such castration of innocent Black boys was necessary to protect their daughters and wife from their slaves. The fact that Carver was castrated at an early age explains why his voice tone was so high. Carver voice tone was so high because his male hormones were never able to kick in. Male hormones (depending on the person) usually kick in between the ages of 9-16 years old. That is a wide range of years. After the male hormones kick in, it causes your voice to naturally become deeper with more of a base tone.A person castrated before puberty almost never displays any secondary sexual characteristics.This is also the reason why George Washington Carver never had any children. I am sure that the physical castration may also be the reason why Carver never married. Physical castration means that you cannot have sexual relations with anyone. There is not even an urge or desire to have sexual relationships after castration. Black people we have been given a revamped “whitewashed” version of history. A version that make whites appear less historically inhumane by hiding the true brutality of how they have treated we blacks throughout history. Black people conduct your own research and learn our true history.

This is what frustrates me…People don’t like Sansa because she is feminine. It annoys me that people only like the feminine characters when they act like male characters. And they always go on about feminism. Like, you’re rooting for the people who look like boys, who act like boys, who fight like boys. Root for the girls who wear dresses and are intellectually very strong.
