what do tradcaths think about immigration? I'm starting to believe traditional catholicism will win back the Church, but I don't know if that will do any good for my people.

>Virginia recorded 86 lynchings in 1880 to 1926, when the last one in the state occurred, with 71 black victims among them.

>On Monday, February 8, 1892, Alice Perry, 12, and a friend were walking home in Roanoke, Virginia when the former was attacked by a black assailant. The Roanoke Times states that "Around the house is clustered a number of dirty negro shanties, and when the brickyard is running full force these are crowded with a mean-looking set of negroes, who keep up a noise all night. It is a dangerous place to raise up children, but Mrs. Perry had always a house of white boarders, in whose case she felt safe."

>The black man had approached the girls and grabbed Alice in his arms. She screamed at her friend to get help and kicked at the attacker, who tried to silence her by gagging her with her own clothing. The other girl ran to Mrs. Perry's house to report the news, but then Alice came back after having escaped his grip and announced that "an old black negro tried to kill me." An armed mob of white men searched the black shanties and other possible locations. They told police of the incident but the latter seemed unconcerned and made no attempt to assist in the search.

In search of a maximally orthopractic religion

No.11614264 View ViewReplyOriginalReport
Are there religions apart from tiny buddhist sects with a million pages theory backlog that focus on a purely orthopractic, ritual first practice? Looking for something with minimal cosmological baggage.

(Please no 201X and ongoing Mindfulness stuff.)

>millions of them still around today, more than every single USA native tribe combined

>maya surnames are more common in the Yucatan than Spanish ones
>their form of catholicism is heavily syncretized with their pre-Columbian faith
>launched a massive rebellion against Mexico just two centuries ago that resulted in the creation of a small independent maya state and a genocide of criollos
>Mexican state in which they are the majority is also one of the least violent in the whole country
All this shows that they are quite possibly the most successful native American group in terms of keeping their culture relatively intact. And yet pop culture, and consequentially the majority of westerners, still treats them like an ancient egypt-tier dead civilization and culture. Why is that?

At which point in history did people, particularly men, start cutting their hair? It makes the most sense for either both genders to have long hair, or both of them to not, but things went a different route along the way.

why is transgenderism so frequent with actors and comedians?

there must be a deeper meaning behind so many actors crossdressing for their act

what made western artists like the idea of it so much

What do you think about this cyclical interpretation of history?

/his/ is not /pol/, and Global Rule #3 is in effect. Do not try to treat this board as /pol/ with dates. Blatant racism and trolling will not be tolerated, and a high level of discourse is expected. History can be examined from many different conflicting viewpoints; please treat other posters with respect and address the content of their post instead of attacking their character.
